    3rd row silverware drawer is great

    |
    Posted .

    If you're buying an 18 inch dishwasher than you're probably worried about space. This is the only dishwasher that use space effectively. It's logic...you put the smallest stuff in the smallest space. Plus no more thinking which end of the fork to put in first. You can just lay it on the side. Spend the extra, it's worth it.

    Have had this unit for 20 months. If loaded correctly, gets the dishes clean. [I wish there were more choices for apartment (18") size dishwashers.] Ran very quite at first, but then got louder and developed a knocking sound. Under warranty had two repair men out, couldn't find problem and tried a few different parts. Finally figured was the middle rack height adjustment pieces became unaligned. Everything inside is plastic and kind of cheap for the price we paid. Now we have to check those pieces every few washes. I just hope they don't completely wear out. Also, the drying is terrible. Uses super high heat, but does not vent out the humid air, so really never dries, just condenses on the walls of the unit. Therefore unit begins to smell unless you leave the door open for a half day or so after use. Soap dispenser, seems so weak and ready to break or wear out soon and is hard to close. Also, the door seems light for the hinge/spring tension and feels cheap. However, I am comparing this to the Miele we had before for 20+ years. It still looked and operated like new, until a computer control panel went out which was too expensive to replace on a 20+ year old machine. Since the Bosch cost only 2/3rds of the Miele, we though we could give it a try. It looks good from the front, but otherwise seems much cheaper construction and materials than the Miele and wish we had paid the higher price and be proud of our purchase.

    Great dishwaser

    There are generally two brands you want to buy for dishwashers which are German. Miele or Bosch. Miele is about twice the cost of the bosch though. Also got free installation and the staff at my local Best Buy/Pacific Sales were great!

    Super quiet! We're a family of four so the 3rd row drawer for spoons and forks is great to have. Remove the basket and the bottom drawer has a lot more space. It's pricey but at least the power cord and drain hose are included. So far everything comes out clean. Don't like the plastic feet...probably should be metal. During installation, it would've been nice if the front feet adjusted up/down like the rear.

    The Bosch 18” dishwasher is perfect for us. I prefer the exterior display and no handle. Three trays inside is great. Dishes get cleaned really well. We replace a Miele and this one has it beat everywhere. It had a small dent in the door but I didn’t notice until installed. I’m not going to worry about it and it cleans the same.

    Cleaning, Dishes

    Choices are limited for 18" machines - you pretty much have "bottom end" and "high end". After a few years of frustration with the former, we decided to bite the bullet and go with the latter. The 3rd drawer drastically increases useability - we removed the basket from the bottom tray, and use the third drawer for cutlery etc, and it holds nearly as much as a regular 24'. It also gets the dishes EXTREMELY clean, whether baked on or just grubby. It also completely lives up to its claims of being near-silent. I literally have to put my ear against it to check whether it's running or not. We had a terrible installation experience with BB (never again!), but the machine itself is outstanding, and highly recommended.

    Love the dishwasher. Very quiet. Barely audible when in the same room. Cleans dishes very well. Accustomed to manual washing of our dishes, and find our dishes now are just as clean, if not cleaner.

    Cleaning, Dishes, Quiet

    We've had this dishwasher (purchased from Best Buy) now for about one year. We've purchased quite a few appliances over the past two years as we've upgraded our kitchen now that we are down to three living at home. This dishwasher is easily the best new appliance we've purchased in the last few years. It is extremely quiet and the dishes come out spotless. One of the best features is the built in water softener. Our prior unit suffered from scale build-up and over the years I had to repair it myself several times to descale/unclog the spray arms. The Bosch 800 Series has been used daily for about a year and has absolutely NO scale build up.... LOVE the built in water softener. To save a little money, we purchase several of the recommended salt containers at a time to save on shipping. This is a FANTASTIC dish washer!

    This machine produces sparkling clean dishes and glasses. I have so much more time with my wife since I usually did the dishes. No salt, no jet rinse, just Finish tablets do a fantastic job. And SSOOOO quiet!!

    Quiet

    This dishwasher is VERY quiet. I just installed it last week and so far so good. It comes with everything you need to install - drain hose and adapter supplied fit my air gap. Both hardwired box and regular three prong plug cane with the unit. I used the three prong plug. The water supply hose had an adapter supplied that attached to a 3/8 fitting on my water supply. Installation went very smoothly following the manual. There are conflicting instructions regarding the size and location of the cutout to pass the hoses and electrical cord to the cabinet under the sink but is relatively easy to figure out once the unit is in front of you. The dishes come out a bit wet if you take them out at the end of the cycle. Otherwise it works very well. A little small for big pots but it is an 18 inch unit so I didn’t expect it to be large. Because we are in Hawaii I had to special order the dishwasher . It arrived at the store a few days early which was a big surprise. I had previously ordered one of these from a competitor and it took 3 months to receive one that was dented. The Best But unit came in pristine condition.

    I would give this 10 stars if I was able to! I love the third rack and the dishes come out so clean and shiny. This dishwasher is so quiet I can barely hear it run when I am standing next to it. I would highly recommend this product!!!! It was so worth spending a little extra to get the best!

    Purchased this dishwasher as a replacement in a galley kitchen. The apartment is under 800 sq. ft. The decibel level was the primary consideration. Amazing! And the Bosch does a very good job cleaning the dishes. Fiestaware fits nicely. Particularly like the third drawer silverware tray.

    Terrible for the price

    Pros mentioned:
    Quiet
    Cons mentioned:
    Dry cycle, Price

    I bought this dishwasher because I don't have a lot of space in my kitchen and there wasn't a good selection for the 18 inch models. I thought Bosch was a good brand and it has very good reviews but those other reviews must be for the full sized model or something because this thing is not worth the price. First off, it took 6 weeks to get because it is special order and when I finally did get it, its loud and doesn't dry the dishes very well. It's false advertising to say that it is only 44 dBA when in reality, it runs at 60 dBA. It is no quieter than some off brand $300 model, but this one is 3x the price! I thought I must have gotten a bad unit and so called Best Buy and they had a tech. come out only to tell me that it was indeed too loud and that it should be drying better than it does. Ok, they ordered me a new one. Another 6 weeks later and I get the replacement, only it has the exact same issues. I can hear this thing running from clear across the house. I give this product 2 stars because it does clean the dishes but any dishwasher can do that, your paying a lot more money for the "quiet" model. The tech also told me that the Bosch brand are known to not dry dishes very well.

    Size

    Matches the stainless appliances we have in the kitchen. Fits perfect into the small studio kitchen. Well worth the cost. Inside is exactly like the standard size Bosch dishwasher including the 3rd top shelf. The heigh seemed to sit lower then a standard dishwasher but we were able to screw the legs to put it higher so it sat under the counter top. We were happy to find something small to fit so I don’t have to hand wash dishes. Yippee!!
