Summary: I purchased this dishwasher to replace an existing unit during a kitchen "facelift." It arrived in perfect condition. The plumber took one look at the dishwasher and expressed concern because he had installed Bosch appliances before and they were "not easy." This was definetely not the case! Installed in a matter of half and hour! I have only used it for a week, but the cleaning quality is amazing. I also used it as a plate warmer prior to a dinner party.
Pros: Amazing Cleaning, Easy Installation, Quiet
Cons: Confusing owners manual, Door Counterspring, Interior CLeaning
Summary: This dishwasher does not come with a face, just a bare mechanical front (not pictured). Being customizable, I guess, means not having any standard front that comes with the $1000 machine. Not even a door handle. Be prepared to buy a door and handle. We had to shell out an extra $350.
Summary: We cook ALL THE TIME. Our perfect evening includes multicourse dinners with close friends and esquisite wine. So far the unit has perfectly met our needs. We can run a quick wash as the first course finishes, loading dishes direct into the unit only scraping leftovers off the plate and have clean/dry dishes 36 minutes later in time for the 3rd course. We're using Cascade COMPLETE with Jet Dry rinse agent and everything is spotless.
Pros: Cleans Well, Energy Efficient, Quiet, Simple Controls
Summary: this cleans better than any bigger dishwasher that I have EVER had. It's so quiet, that you forget it's running. It holds a lot more dishes than I thought it would, and I NEVER pre rinse my dishes,and they come out spotless !! thank you for a great product !!
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Load, Energy Efficient, Large Capacity, Multiple Settings, Quiet
Summary: This dishwasher is incredibly quiet, easy to install, and allows for cleaning almost as many items as the larger dishwasher that used to be in the space. Since this is a loft sound control is very important and this dishwasher cannot be heard running except when it fills with water.
Summary: We looked for a compact 18" dishwasher that would fit into our (tiny) kitchen. The Bosch is great and perfectly fits our need. It is easy to install, everything fits perfectly and makes a good and sturdy impression. The interior is versatile (upper basket can be height adjusted, dish holder flip over, cutlery basket movable). The most important for us: it is very very quiet. You can barely hear anything.
