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 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet It was easy to install, does an excellent job of cleaning dishes. We are still getting use to the different basket arrangements. It is very quiet. This unit has a rinse and hold cycle which we use a lot. It has a very good appearance in the kitchen gallery. 1/30/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by A+ I devoted many hours to comparing dishwashers in order to find the most attractive, functional, affordable, and energy efficient unit on the market. This Bosch DW has met these criteria and exceeded my highest expectations (only breaking my budget by a few hundred $ - but worth it and would do it again). Here's a quick rundown of features that I like and dislike, or are simply otherwise worth addressing. Firstly, as a number of other reviewers have pointed out, if certain selections are not made on the DW, you will likely be left with wet dishes at the end of your cycle. The buttons I engage to get the cleanest and driest dishes in the shortest amount of time (regardless of the size of the load) include Auto, Sanitize, and Half Load. Turning on Extra Dry Heat (only have to do this once - see manual) is just slightly more difficult than pressing a single button on the unit but will offer up drier (and warmer) dishes to you at the end of a cycle. Also, be sure to use some sort of rinse aid such as Jet Dry and turn the dial to 6 to avoid streaks. It's worth noting that while the unit seems quite energy efficient and performs excellently with the above-described settings engaged (establishing a 114-minute cycle), it does require a substantial amount of rinse aid for each cycle. A little icon on the display located under "Refill Rinse Aid" at the top of the unit will disappear when a sufficient amount of rinse aid is added. From what I've found, starting a cycle with not enough rinse aid (so that the flower icon is still visible when the cycle begins) will cause the DW to NOT dispense /any/ rinse aid at all and leave your dishes streaky and less clean. No flower icon = A sufficient amount of rinse aid has been added for the current cycle. Installation was straightforward and the unit, being on the small side, was able to fit flush with my counter tops and look extraordinarily sharp, clean, and symmetrical once in place. HOWEVER, only two measly screws were included for securing the DW to my counter tops, which proved much too unstable and caused the DW to sway left or right and not stay centered with everyday use. To remedy this, I took a few 2" and 4" screws and sent those through the thick plastic of the DW where it was closest to the floor (and didn't look like it would interfere with any components), securing the DW to the ground until I actually /do/ want to move it. These screws are hidden, of course, behind the black metal plate near the bottom of the DW. Attempt that method at your own risk of breaking something. PROS: -Dishes always come out hot and super clean (my silver spoons actually shine and I see my reflection, which I have never seen before from this set of silverware!) -Quiet! -Easy to use. -Energy efficient depending upon which settings are engaged (Express Wash runs a mere 30 minutes, but your dishes will be very wet). -Spacious with countless configurations for organizing top and bottom rows of dishes. CONS: -Somewhat pricey (but still good value) -Problems staying aligned (would not stay centered after installing, but this was resolved with a few long screws and some added effort) -Requires a seemingly high amount of rinse aid per cycle. 7/18/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Dishwasher Supper quiet, very energy efficient, plenty of options, does great job cleaning. What else can you ask for? 8/10/12
Rated 4 out of 5 Very Quiet Dishes are very clean and it is easy to operate plus you don't even know its running. 12/19/12
