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 customers' 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 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far! We bought this dishwasher to replace a KitchenAid that was 9 years old, leaked and ruined our cork floors twice. After looking at the latest KA model, I read more about leaking problems and decided to go with Bosch, a trusted quality brand. The dishwasher is super quiet, I have to check the LED panel to see if it's on sometimes. Does a perfect job of washing the dishes, they are spotless. I have to admit, I've not read the manual all the way through to check out all of the functions, there are many. LOVE the light when you open it and love the extra top rack for kitchen utensils, which I use a lot of. What I don't like are the lower two dish racks themselves. Nothing seems to fit quite right. The bottom rack has tines so close together in one section, I'm not quite sure what you'd put in them except for tiny dessert or appetizer plate and how often would you use those? I also would love for someone to finally build in some tines just for wine glasses, ours fall over on the bottom rack and have to be propped up. We use tons of bowls, pasta bowls, cereal bowls and they are awkward in the racks as well. I also traded out the silver ware holder and use our old one, it's much sturdier and makes more sense. Though the Bosch cutlery holder will fold in half creating more rack space, the directions for placing the silverware were ridiculous and non-sensical, no one is going to remember a difficult pattern. Overall, we like it very much, it has a sleek design and fits right in with our stainless steel kitchen. I'm hoping to take the time to read the manual to learn more about the features. 5/1/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good investment I spent much time researching dishwashers on various websites to replace the Kitchenaid one I had that fell apart after only a few years. The reviews on this model overall were the best. I have not been disappointed with the purchase. It is so quiet, I don't even know it is running. AJ Madison provided the best price for the model. I've purchased other appliances from AJ Madison and have been very pleased with the customer service. I wanted a good quality kitchen appliance not only for functionality but also to serve as an investment also should I decide to sell my home in the future. 8/13/15
