What's special about German engineering is special about Bosch.
Bosch takes pride in their ability to overcome technological obstacles. They face these daunting challenges so they can produce world-class, intuitive machines that use fewer resources. And that's why they'll never be afraid of the work it takes to engineer the world's best machines. Available at AJ Madison.

Their vision comes directly from the words of Robert Bosch, whose vision is still being lived by employees everywhere. This spirit is also embedded in all their appliances, which help their customer's lives day after day.

Best-in-Class Quiet
Bosch looks at noise reduction from all angles, as they've employed 18 unique sound-reducing technologies in their washers. And as the quietest line of dishwashers in the U.S., Bosch has a silence rating as low as 39 dBA (quietest dishwasher sold in North America). All Bosch quiet levels are certified by an independent lab and printed on the fascia.

Most Efficient
Winning the 2011 ENERGY STAR Award for Sustained Excellence was just the latest feather in Bosch's cap - after all, they've won two straight ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Awards.

German-Engineered Quality
When they talk about German engineering, they're talking about their commitment to producing the world's best products. They use the smartest thinking to make complex machinery easy to operate while using the highest-quality materials to build them.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Nice I like many things about this dishwasher but I am still getting use to loading it the efficient way. I am having the most difficulty with the top rack since we use a lot of glasses and cups. I think in time I'll get it figured out and it won't be an issue. The dishwasher is so quiet you don't even realize it is running. The alarm when the cycle is done can be a bit annoying though. 2/25/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by BOSCH GOOD VALUE GOOD PERFORMANCE A Great Dishwasher and it is QUIET! My only reservation is that the actual INTERIOR SIZE , DISH CAPACITY is SMALLER than I am used to. I overlooked this but I am dealing with it. The operation of the machine is VERY GOOD. It cleans! I would buy it again. 4/7/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Dishwasher hands down This dishwasher is not only quiet, but leaves my dishes clean and sparkling. I only use finish dishwasher tabs with it and highly recommend finish dry rinsing agent as there is no drying mechanism in this dishwasher. BUT, it doesn't need it. The design of this model allows your dishes to air dry and come out sparkling. It is also very energy efficient. It costs a fraction of the amount that my old dishwasher did. I love this dishwasher and will not buy ANYTHING but a Bosch again. 9/16/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, almost too quiet. We have had this dishwasher about a year now, it was rated very high everywhere we checked and very happy with the way it cleans. It does not have a drying cycle, but we knew this going in and really don't miss it. We were told that this unit was quieter than the model it replaced. Our kitchen is adjacent to the living room and watching TV could be a problem with the old unit. This dishwasher is so quiet if you fail to look for the red warning light on the floor you will open it while it is running - surprise! So far we are very pleased with the dishwasher, so much so that when our double wall oven died last week we are replacing it with a Bosch unit. Yes I would recommend this product to a friend without hesitation. 2/7/15
