    Simple to use and easy to clean even the toughest most dirty dishes, pots, and even pans. Very happy with this purchase and hope it will last a long time.

    Well worth the price for this DW. I never put pots and pans in my old DW and this one is a iifechanger. I can put most pots and pans to wash, the plastic I put on the bottom doesn't melt because there is no heating element and it is QUIET! I love this dishwasher so much I named it.

    Washer is a little tall at 34 1/2" so measure before buying. It's super quiet. Top rack has a nice feature where you can lower it down and increase the top rack height. The automatic wash mode seems to handle limited food stuck to dishware so I haven't really had to use the pot scrubber mode.

    Great Quality, One Major Problem

    Easy to install, quiet, cleans great, but has one huge problem. We wash dishes often, so dishwashers get replaced every 4-5 years and have tried them all. As with anything new it takes a while to get familiar with it. Well my wife and I have tried to load this dishwasher every way possible and both have decided that the racks are not designed for a mix of dishes, glasses, pots, pans... What would be one load in all other dishwashers, turns in to two in this one. Whoever designed this never used it. If it wasn't so much trouble to return, that is what we would be doing.

    Great dish cleaning. Top silverware rack adds to usefulness, or rack can be pulled out for more height space on rack below. Adjustable tines help adjust dish space. Wish it had heated drying for plastic items. China, pot, pans & silverware dry well, but plastic containers retain water. This would be better in a drier climate. Would not recommend for high humidity climates.

    Made the right choice

    After researching dishwashers relentlessly, I finally settled on this one. After using it for a little over a week now, I can say that I think I made a good choice. Most important, the dishes come out spotless every time. I use all 3 racks and everything is clean regardless of what rack. I use Auto for more dirty dishes and the speed60 cycle for just normal grit and grime. Both work excellent. Auto takes roughtly 2 - 2.5 hours. The one thing I will say is that my plastic bowls/cups are still wet even after using the extended dry feature. Not a big deal for me as I just open the dishwasher a bit and let them air dry. I'm in no rush to put them away. Have to say that I really like the 3rd rack. On a few occasions when I had large pots/pans, I removed the silverware rack on the bottom shelf for more space and put all my silver on the 3rd rack. Everything comes out clean which is the #1 reason to have a dishwasher and the reason I give it 5 stars.

    Not so Hot

    Horrible Dishwasher, 5 months in for our new SHEM63W52N and it still has a toxic melting plastic smell when it runs, and even worse when you open the door to let your soaking wet dishes dry. @@@@@@@@ You need to turn the fan on above the stove as well as open a couple windows in the kitchen help make it breathable) Have talked to Bosch countless times, they even sent a Bosch Technician to come and look at it. He was going to recommend to Bosch to replace the unit, but suggested we take the machine back to place of purchase. It took almost a month for the Tech to come and look at it, so my hope of returning was gone. That is also if I wanted to take a loss of paying a restocking fee. I am now stuck with a dishwasher that we can not use. Dishes do not fit in well, cereal bowls and plates must go in the bottom rack because bowls and saucers break in the top rack when it is up, but if top rack is lowered it bashes my Corelle plates (not over sized plates) in the bottom thus not rotating the spray arm. Drinking glasses do not fit on top rack, cookie sheets, casserole pans, pots and cutting boards do not fit in bottom. Soap just sticks to the top rack handle and does not dissolve/break down for proper washing. Even used the Finish detergent that Bosch told me to use because other ones were not working correctly. @@@@@@@@ Just as bad if not worse) Water does not heat hotter the the Hot tap water that first goes in. We have done the Vinegar and baking soda over a dozen times like Bosch recommended and still no luck. Everything needs to be dried off with towels because it is soaking wet, and then you need to dry the inside of the machine as well as the door. We will no longer be using this machine that is now taking up space in my kitchen, It has even started to make the stainless steel cutlery, utensils, and even bowls to go rusty. We will not be purchasing anything from Bosch again,, and they have been of no help, to fix this problem.

    Cleans, Dries, So Quiet!

    This review is both premature (this dishwasher was installed four days ago) and reactive (we had a super-crap Maytag dishwasher for four years). But with those caveats: I'm in love! When we were shopping for a replacement d/w, because of the amount of plastic we wash I was so firm on on the d/w being able to dry, but our other "must-haves" were third-rack, stainless interior, exposed controls, which kinda limited the pool. Because we'd had a Kitchen-Aid which was ridiculously expensive and which then died four years later, we've a strong bias against them, so that was also off the list. Because of our recent unacceptable experience with Maytag (which we'd chosen based on the rec from the popular consumer magazine as well as online reviews), that was also off the list. So here we are with the Bosch. It is so quiet -- it's running right now and I had to keep checking "is it on?" Yes, it's. Every time we've run it since installation everything has come out bone dry, including all our plastics. I'd forgotten what that was like .... CONS: I will say that I definitely see some of the nits others have mentioned: -the tines are spaced rather closely, forcing creative (aka awkward) placement of some items, especially in the bottom rack. @@@@@@@@ For example, I cannot get our pan / pot lids to fit because the tines are too narrow, so they have been perched at a rakish angle. @@@@@@@ -the three trays, especially the top two, are not smooth operators. Especially the third rack -- that you really have to jimmy to get it back in, which feels stupid and makes me feel a bit resentful, like "really? Brand new not inexpensive d/w, and the racks are giving me grief?" -the utensil tray's openings are not big enough for some of our cutlery. I'm a HUGE proponent of the business-end of cutlery being up (so as to be thoroughly cleaned), but our silver has decorative bottoms, and the knives and dinner forks have LARGE decorative bottoms: they don't fit in even the largest of the openings. I really like using the cutlery dividers because nothing can then nest together (and not get cleaned), but that's not an option, unless I lay them on the upper (third) rack. Which I don't and probably won't, because that I'm using for sippy-cup innards and spatulas / tongs. I know, very first world-champagne issues, but it's also true. So, would I buy this again, based on my extensive use these past four days? YES. This is about the most money I'm now willing to spend on a dishwasher given their short lives, and, given our must-haves, it fills the bill. Plus it cleans beautifully, dries thoroughly, and is super quiet.
