All Looks No Quality

Ralph Yates, Amazon

  • Summary: While nice and shiny on the outside with its stainless steel exterior our Bosch products were complete crap and a huge disappointment. The mother circuit board in our Bosch refrigerator fried after only one and half years. Our previous refrigerators ran for decades and are still running without any such problems. The plastic shelves in the door are fragile and have already been replaced due to breakage.

Very disappointed, never again

  • Summary: We bought this microwave for a new kitchen two months ago. It started out simply shutting down in the middle of cooking, then it died altogether. We called the Bosch repair service over a month ago and still do not have a functioning unit after two service calls. The unit is on the dining room floor so we can trip on it. We paid extra for Bosch and after two month have yet to have a functioning microwave.

Would not buy it if I knew better.

  • Summary: The microwave stopped working after one month of use. I am waiting for a repairman now for 5 days. My old Sharp was still running when I dumped it after 20 years.I never had a seconds trouble with it.

Missing Parts, Poor Customer Service

Bosch Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Like all microvaves, our Bosch has a perforated metal screen on the door to reduce microwave energy from escaping through the glass door. This screen should be covered by a think plastic sheet to prevent food spatters from being trapped between the screen and glass. (The door cannot be disassembled for cleaning).

Bosch HMV5051U - Not what I expected

TFW, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: I've only had the Bosch HMV5051U for a couple weeks, and it seems to be working fine. But two design aspects of the microwave are disappointing. One, if you use the timer, none of the cooking functions will operate - that's just dumb! My previous non-Bosch microwaves had timers that worked independently from the cooking functions. Second, the Bosch's display panel is a hideous red; why couldn't they use easy-to-read green like everyone else?

  • Summary: "This Microwave is off to a good start. It has nice one-button start features which I like. It is not as fancy as some other models but is powerful and does a good even job of ``nuking`` our offerings.
  • Pros: Quick start features.

Non-functioning months out of (1 year) warranty

Wormboy, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Gone are the days when an appliance might last a generation. At some point in the last two decades, price competition has driven build quality to unacceptable levels. So we buy "respectable" brands, like Bosch, right? Wrong! I bought this and installed it in late summer 2011. By December 2012 it was non-functional. Well, we still use it as a clock, but it won't ever heat food again.
