BOSCH SHE8ER5 SERIES
DO NOT BUY THIS DISHWASHER
The sales listings tout how quiet and energy efficient it is. It is quiet. It is energy efficient because it does not have heated drying !! The dishes are never completely dry ! Carbon steel knives become rust spotted. Stainless steel knives do not become spotted. Every coffee mug has a lake of water staring at you when you open it after a cycle. The cycles are very long, mainly 3 hours ! The bottom rack has overly large bottom spacing and small dishes hit the rotating spray arm. I put wire across the large spacing to remedy this. The silverware basket is too small and fills up long before the rest of the washer. I purchased a second silverware basket to take care … of this. Now the bottom rack is a little short of space. You have to be extremely careful to not trip the door latch with the door open. This will cause a service call, unless you're daring enough to pull the washer out to reset the latch. The installer didn't place the unit properly under our counter causing a door leak ! A second installer didn't get it right either. I had to tweak the installation so the door would seal properly. The control panel is very user unfriendly. Whatever happened to a rotating knob with a full wash and a short wash?!! A very expensive washer and a very poor value. I'll be replacing it with an American made unit shortly.
We already own other Bosch appliances, so knew we were buying quality. Despite having read other reviews, we were still amazed at how quiet this dishwasher is. We can hold a normal conversation standing right next to it and still hardly hear it.
With our previous dishwasher, we often had to juggle items around to ensure everything fitted. The Bosch has an adjustable middle shelf, which enables us to put everything in exactly as we want to. Our tall wine glasses fit easily on the middle shelf and our large dinner plates are easily accommodated on the bottom shelf - even without adjusting the shelf.
The top cutlery shelf is perfect and frees up space underneath for other items.
All dishes, … pans and glassware are cleaned to perfection, without pre-rinsing.
This machine is incredibly efficient, but due to the spacious interior, we are using it less frequently than our previous one, making it even more efficient.
The Bosch is very easy to use and it is a great looking addition to our kitchen.
If you are looking to buy a new dishwasher, you cannot go wrong with this one and I can certainly recommend it.See more See less
