Bought this dishwasher after a lot of research. I wanted a quiet one, and quiet this one is. Everyone is amazed at how little noise it makes when operating. We have been very satisfied with it for the first year. After 1.5 year of ownership, we now have to wash plates and utensils several times as the Bosch doesn`t wash them properly. Washing plastics (e.g. tupperware) has always been an issue with the containers never drying (?) and covered with soap stains. Would not buy again.
