    We’ve run about 120 loads in two months, so I feel reasonable writing a review. Replaced our 10 year old Bosch that started to make our dishes smell, despite cleaning the filter religiously and running empty loads to clean the basin. No smell in the new dishwasher. Even with the 3rd row, All our dishes fit great, including large pots, bowls and 9x13 pans. We do not have wine glasses, can’t speak to that. Sometimes when extra room is needed, I remove the utensil cage on the bottom rack (using top rack for silverware) and it provides a ton of extra space. I actually rarely use the bottom rack utensil cage. It takes longer to load the 3rd rack with silverware (than traditional baskets at the bottom) but I like that my crawling infant can no longer reach the utensils at all while I’m loading/unloading (you know what I’m talking about if you have kids). Plus, it’s nice not to have to bend over to load/unload the utensils, and I bet they come out cleaner. Everything comes out clean, and our glasses look as clean as they smell. Drying works great. Never had a problem with wet plastic dishes beyond places where water naturally settles (like the underside of mixing bowls with a raised base). Sipping cups and plastic kiddie cups are dry and ready to be stacked in each other in the cupboard. I do use Jet Dry, though. Front of dishwasher shows ALL fingerprints, but ours is on an island facing the stove, so it isn’t a concern for us (image shows fingerprinted dishwasher- not terrible, but not great). With the emphasis on how quiet this is (and it is quiet), I thought it would be even quieter than our 10 year old Bosch. It’s the same. They are both significantly quieter than the Kitchenaid we had before that. Our previous setup was for a wired dishwasher (not a plug in). Installer said this dishwasher came with a plug, but also included what was needed to convert to a direct wired unit- in case that helps anyone.

    Quiet, you can’t even hear it. The red dot that shines on the floor let’s me know it’s on. My dishes are so clean. I love the silverware tray on the 3rd shelf. Love the Bosch!

    The Sweet Spot of Bosch Dishwashers!

    |
    Posted .

    The sweet spot of Bosch dishwashers. At least once a week one of us stops while we are unloading this thing and we say that we didn't think we'd ever actually like a dishwasher. The top drawer (for utensils, etc.) is fantastic. We thought it might be a waste of time but it turns out that we can fit all of our utensils in it and we don't need the utensils basket at all. The organized approach to that utensil drawer makes unloading super-fast. The 500 series includes the utensil drawer that can be adjusted to fit things like finger bowels, spatulas, etc. The 300 model doesn't have the same drawer. This is one of the useful upgrades that I think makes the 500 worthwhile. [Photo is of the drawer, as if you pulled it out of the machine and looked down at it.] The 500 also hits the sweet spot in terms of drying. When the door pops open, it just needs 90 seconds to release bunches of the humidity in the unit. We generally leave the door open until we unload the washer, but we sometimes close it (when we're actively using the kitchen at the time). Either way, we've never had a problem with wet dishes and there's never been an odor. We were used to pre-rinsing the bejeezus out of our dishes and this thing will have none of that. It's super-quiet (I have a 45 db hearing loss and often don't hear it running - the red light that it beams on the floor is a perfect way to know it's running.) Emptying filters requires no special tools, which is great. We keep waiting for this machine to disappoint us, but it ain't happening. It makes sense that we had to wait for this model - it's a great balance between the various Bosch models. We didn't want/need the drying process of the 800 series, but the 500 offers an eco-thoughtful approach to improve drying.

    One month in. Super quiet. LOVE the 3rd rack. Racks all seem strong and slide well. No bad smell as referenced by others (mostly for 300 models) but we always do the airdry option. Plenty of room if you pay attention to how you load the dishwasher and with the gargantuan silverware basket removed. We use the 3rd rack for silverware. Depending on how tall your glasses are, you can adjust the 3rd rack down for bigger ladles, etc. same for the 2nd rack depending on the size of your plates. My only complaints would be the drying and run time. SO thankful I chose the model with Auto Air. First time I ran it I chose normal with Auto Air. The racks and interior were still wet. Might have been better had I not checked it right after the door popped open. Now I run normal+sanitize+airdry. Problem solved; but, the run time is ridiculous. Wish the EPA hadn’t done away with heated drying. So buy the 500 over the 300 for the air dry. Skip the 800 or higher. I can’t imagine the difference in quietness could be so profound to warrant $200-$600 more.

    So quiet that we doubt it’s on half the time. Leaves dishes very clean, which is most important. Only negative (and it might reflect my lack of research rather than the product) is that the ‘auto air’ dry feature has to be set each time you turn it on. Very happy. Wish I’d upgraded earlier.

    After doing some extensive research I choose this model of the 300 series. I can not be happier with the purchase. It is really quiet and the design is sleek and modern. I do not have a problem with the drying. In fact I was a little hesitant but so far it has dried all of my dishes well. I use auto, sanitize, and open air. The open air feature must help the dishes dry well because I have run across that problem. It also has plenty of space.

    I was skeptical, advised not to pre-rinse. But every dish, glass, and piece of silverware turns out spotless! And the dishwasher is so quiet, it’s amazing.

    Looks great. So quiet I kept going into the kitchen to make sure it was working. I did not do any pre-rinse and dishes were perfectly cleaned. Love the three shelves and stainless steel basin. Great product and would buy again.

    Bosch is King

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    What Sony is to TVs, Waste King is to garbage disposers, Bosch is to dishwashers. I struggled with which dishwasher to buy. Online user reviews were confusing at best. Most of the top rated items on Consumer Reports are Bosch, but user reviews didn't reflect the same high scores. I decided to go with my gut and get this Bosch model - my first Bosch product. After one week, my initial evaluation is that it's flat-out awesome - the best washer I've ever owned. Pros: 1) Dishes come out completely spotless 2) The Air Dry feature works extremely well. No dishwasher gets everything bone dry, but this thing is darn close. Most of the negative feedback I've seen is around drying - not just with this dishwasher, but all dishwashers. This dishwasher gets everything dry enough to go straight into the cabinet. I don't agree with the negative feedback I've seen on this. 3) Organization - The interior is highly flexible with lots of options to put dishes in different places 4) Third rack - I was skeptical of a third rack - concerned over it taking up additional space. But things get very clean and because the second rack is adjustable, it doesn't take away from the ability to put what you need where you need it. 5) Quiet - It's so quiet you wouldn't know it's on except for the red light that shines on the ground telling you it's running 6) It's a sleek looking machine that blends in well with my kitchen. Cons: 1) The interior seems a bit on the small side. However, because of the flexibility of the interior racks this really isn't an issue. I have installed all the other dishwashers I've owned but I did not install this one. The Best Buy crew did it in 1/2 hour and everything seems great. I can only assume it's easy to install. I have only had it a week, but unless something breaks, this is by far the best dishwasher I've ever owned and would definitely buy again. I highly recommend

    This was a great purchase! My wife and I really like how it gets dishes clean without any kind of pre-wash. It also cleans plastic very well. Thankfully the engineers at Bosch put in a light that shines on the floor so you know it is running. Without the light you would never know because it is so quiet.

    Amazing: pop open air dry and quiet are awesome

    Wow. Replaced a Viking, almost bought a Miele, and glad I got this. First, it's like crazy silent. No idea it's running standing right in front of it. 2nd, the middle rack easily moves up so our huge plates easily fit below. 3rd, the auto pop open at end leaves dishes really dry (a different world from the Viking). The 1 hour cycle works for almost everything, too. We love it. Also the kitchen feels bigger without a towel bar sticking out. After all, we never used the towel bar cause the towel would fall off opening and closing. Two things to note: First, if you're getting water in the bottom, check your connection to your disposal/sink -- the tube has to go up and then down to the disposal. I installed it myself, and this little change fixed it. Second, be wary of open box. Ours was listed as Acceptable. It was heavily wrapped so we couldn't check it at the store, but it has a large chip on the front; had we seen it, I would not have bought it. It was also missing the power cord. (Best Buy included a new direct line cord, but we needed normal plug in power cord, so I had to order one.) It was awesome the same the melting clips, so I had order those, too.

    This Dishwasher is so quiet you will think it,s not working. But it is and the dishes are always sparkling! The position of the rack compartments are a little odd but I can deal with it! Well worth the money!

    Really happy with this dishwasher. It took a little while to figure how to get the settings to work the way I wanted; now it’s intuitive. 95% of the time the dishwasher opens at the end of the cycle to help finish drying without using a lot of electricity. And the dishes dry well without getting that “fishy” smell on the dishes from being in a closed dishwasher overnight. Also like the pan to catch leaks. Our last dishwasher was a GE and leaked after just 3 years, ruining our wood floors. Also, it’s really quiet after the first 5 minutes or so in the cycle.

    High quality washer with some tradeoffs

    Pros - Very quiet (I could hear a skill saw one street over and it was louder than the dishwasher when I was standing right next to it). Good cleaning quality on this machine as well. Dishes are clean and spotless. Cons - No heated dry. More of an air dry from some of the heat made by the water, but you end-up having puddles of water on upside-down glasses, bowls, etc. Also; due to the added third rack on the top, you have limited height that you may not normally have in a washer with only two racks. For example; we have to strategically place our butter knives in the silverware rack because if we do not, the spinning mechanism will hit them. Same goes with taller glasses on the upper rack, too tall and they're bumping the top rack. The flip side of this is that the upper rack can be removed if necessary.

    My three year old Samsung dishwasher was not meeting my expectations and started having technical issues that were going to require high diagnostic fees. I decided to research and buy a new dishwasher and here I am today. After much research I decided to purchase this Bosch - 500 Series and am I glad I did! First and foremost, this machine is VERY quiet. If it weren't for the light indicator at the bottom I wouldn't know it was running. I love the third rack feature and after a couple days of using it I can say that it cleans very well (if used as directed). The organization of the prongs on the racks is great and much better than other dishwashers I have experienced. The AutoAir feature is good and my dishes are clean, dry, and ready to go after a wash cycle. I was nervous to spend this much money on a dishwasher but you honestly get what you invest.

    We purchased the Bosch dishwasher one month ago. We have used it an average of once a day. Cleaning Is super. No need to rinse dishes prior to putting dishes in the dishwasher. I would recommend this Bosch dishwasher!

    Good but could be better

    Pros: Cleans very well. Supposed Bosch quality. Good space to put pots and pans. Plenty of space on the 3rd rack, so you can take out the silverware rack from the bottom rack to make more space. The soap container is up on the door large dishes don't mess it up. Cons: Longer cycles than some other dishwashers. More energy consumption than similar competition. Big silverware basket which takes a lot of space on the bottom rack. Since we were adding another dishwasher along with our GE PDT775SYNFS which we have used for more than a year, we've had good experience to compare. The GE is unmatched for putting stuff in it. This Bosch is close once you take the silverware basket out. Bosch is ranked # 1 by consumer reports and others for quality, so I am keeping this one even though the controls are Archaic. Real buttons instead of the touch controls on so many other dishwashers. But you know it works just as well, just doesn't look nice these days.
