Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not my best choice Remodeled the whole kitchen & chose Bosch for the silence. We have had a Bosch in the past and it has been whisper quiet. This model, not so much. It is a bit loud when you first start the load, but does seem to quiet down while the cycle is running. It just looks cheap to me. It is a plastic silver on top and the stainless on the bottom feels thin. I was most confident in this purchase and it turns out it is the most disappointing. Plus side, it appears to be cleaning well. 11/2/09
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall really nice The only complaint I have is that the racks inside are kind of had to load. The dividers are simply too close together to put larger items in. It takes a bit of organizing to get things to fit, but without so many rack dividers you could fit a lot more inside. The performance and Noise are EXCELLENT, so if you are willing to bend a few wires on the racks, its a great product. 11/28/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I am very happy with this purchase. The only thing I would change would be the silverware is in back and I would prefer it in front so I could drop in spoons etc. easily without pulling out whole bottom rack. It's quiet, cleans well and has nice choices for holding dishes. I didn't want ones that flipped up and down...had Maytag that did that and it was pain...this setup is more like Kitchenaid I had for 20 years and loved. 12/5/09
Rated 5 out of 5 Would purchase from AJ again I would definatley purchase from AJ Madison again. I received my purchase on schedule. I was very impressed how well it was packaged in a very strong crate. Dishwasher was in perfect condition. I loved saving on the tax and being able to take advantage of a rebate being offered at the time of sale. The dishwasher is not top of the line, but does want I want it to do. The most important was how "quiet" it is. You can't even hear it running. I love it! Thank you. 12/8/09
