Description
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 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice dishwasher dishwasher didnt work after installation, but was lucky to get a phone service guy who told me to press a couple of buttons and he got it working, seems the machine sometimes goes to "sleep" in transit....and needs some electronic guidance to wake up, this was only after other service people kept insisting that my installation was at fault. the machine is quiet, sleek and does a decent job cleaning the dishes, still not the best lay out for pots, and flatware but better than my last bosch. the light on the floor lets you know when its working but you don't know where it's up to. 11/5/11
Rated 5 out of 5 Best purchase ever I LOVE this dishwasher!!! Its quick, its quiet AND it CLEANS my dishes!!! I totally recommend this dishwasher! 1/15/12
Rated 4 out of 5 Cannot fit custom panel to this model! We bought this with the aim of fitting a custom panel to the front. As it is described as "fully integrated" we believed this was possible. Not so, this refers to the controls being located out of sight, that is all. Beware! 4/18/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome dishwasher I have only used it a few times so far, but so far it is awesome. it is so quite I do not know it is on. I have to make sure. Love it! 5/7/12
