Description
In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the "Workshops for Precision Engineering and Electrical Engineering" in Stuttgart, Germany. Since then, Bosch has grown into a global leader through its dedication to innovation and quality engineering. Bosch is one of the companies with the most patent applications worldwide. Today, Bosch operates in almost 50 countries on every continent through subsidiaries and associated companies. All around the world, the Bosch name stands for innovation, quality and product diversity.

At last, microwaves that won't be destined to hide inside a cabinet and warming drawers that don't appear as if they were an afterthought to the rest of the kitchen. Bosch built-in microwaves and warming drawers are the ultimate marriage of stylish form and cooking function. For easy installation, microwaves and warming drawers are available in a variety of configurations and can fit into a single cutout. So you can easily outfit your kitchen to help you perform cooking or warming tasks with ultimate ease and sophistication.

Bosch sensor cooking modes measure the amount of humidity in the oven, then automatically adjust cooking time for the type of food being cooked. This standard feature in their built-in microwaves adds a new level of performance and sophistication to your cooking.

Product Reviews
Rated 1.7 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bosch - Built-in Microwave 500 series - SS Purchased this model for new home just over two years ago. Very satisfied with its performance until yesterday. Now it will only operate for six seconds and then quit. Appears this model has a defective inverter/magnetron issues and this is a widespread problem among other owners. 2/21/15
Rated 1 out of 5 by deeply dissatisfied I bought a full Bosch suite of appliances less than 3 years ago because of their high rankings in quality and design. This couldn't be farther from the truth with this microwave. The unit has the infamous and well documented problem where it will only run for 20 seconds and then shut down. The cost to fix with labor is as much as a new unit. Shocked to find out the units warranty is only one year, yet based on the reviews of others I am lucky I got an extra 12 months of use. We have a $60 microwave in our break room at work that takes daily abuse for now over a decade and it hasn't stopped working yet. I expected a whole lot more out of a Bosch product and now I am left guessing if I really want to replace it with a similar Bosch product. 11/17/14
Rated 1 out of 5 by short life I experienced the same thing. Microwave shuts off after a few seconds. Haven't had it long. Has anyone found a good replacement (another brand) with these same dimensions? Need a replacement fast! 2/13/15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't Buy The control panel that supplies power to the rest of the unit went out on ours in 18 months. Cost of repairs would have been over $400. Too pricey of a machine not to last. 3/18/09
