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 4.5 out of 5 by 95 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Plain and simple Seems to work fine, moderately priced and does a good job. 8/1/14
Rated 5 out of 5 Highly Recommend After purchasing a dog of Kitchenaid dishwasher just 2-1/2 years ago that failed, we are so pleased with this Bosch model. I installed it myself (I am not that handy) which was not as easy as I would have liked and did require some additional parts for hose connections but once installed it has worked beautifully. The rack design does hold additional settings very efficiently and it is a very simple, clean design. Another nice feature is that if a replacement rack wheel did break by chance, you only have to replace that small part instead of an entire, very expensive bracket assembly like on the Kitchenaid model. Would whole-heartily recommend this product! 6/30/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dishwasher The very best dish machine I have ever seen !\r\nI would and have recommended to everyone I know. 10/30/13
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor-Design Racks, Clean Filter, Has Rinse & Hold Replaced a 7-year old white Kitchen Aid to get stainless steel. Unit looks nice and is quiet enough. Two big disappointments: + Racks must be designed for some specific German dishes. There's no good place for 12 oz glasses - they tip over easily. Tines are too short and too close together. If your bowls have any but the narrowest rims, they won't fit. Two sets of tines are at right angles to each other, so if one set is loaded, you can't use the other set. Because of the poor design, unit will only hold about two-thirds what the Kitchen Aid would hold. + To achieve quietness, this unit, like many others, ditches the food pulverizer in favor of a filter that needs periodic cleaning. As this is an unpleasant task, we, like many others, render it as infrequent as possible by rinsing our dishes thoroughly before putting them in the machine. So much for water savings! In fact, salesmen at three stores we visited advised us to rinse first. And I can't say this unit seems any quieter than the old one that had a pulverizer. One big benefit - the reason we bought this unit - Rinse and Hold. With just two of us, it takes three or four days to fill the dishwasher, and I wouldn't want food to sit on dishes for three days and start smelling! 12/3/14
