What you do in the spotlight isn't the measure of your quality, substance or responsibility. What you do when no one is watching is what truly counts. Since 1886, Bosch engineers have pushed themselves - not to meet your expectations, but exceed them. With superior engineering that continually redefines quality. Appliances that do their jobs so well, they seem to have a mind of their own. Yet remain mindful of the world at large and their impact on the environment. To others, this might seem contradictory. To Bosch, it's their reason for being. Every day, they challenge themselves to deliver superior appliances and greater efficiency - without compromising one for the other. They combine sleek, smart design and practical innovations that use less energy. Less water. And more recyclable materials. Not because the world demanded it. But because they believe they should.
Unmatched silence. Unrivaled energy and water efficiency. Ultimate protection. That's the story behind every Bosch dishwasher. If you didn't notice it was a Bosch, you'd never know it was there. That's how quiet their dishwashers are. Like gentle rain, their machines, with advanced noise reduction, register as low as 40 dBA - the quietest in the U.S. Just don't let the calm, quiet demeanor lull you into thinking the innovation ends there because Bosch exclusives like EcoAction raise energy and water efficiency to consistently surpass ENERGY STAR levels.
Bosch dishwashers constantly earn top rankings from leading consumer publications and test labs worldwide. Of course, you may not have heard that. Or anything at all. Buried behind three layers of sound-muffling coated metal and cotton-fiber insulation, their suspended, two-pump motor system dramatically reduces vibration and noise.
Exceeding the 2011 ENERGY STAR requirements is impressive. Building the most efficient line in the U.S., amazing. Doing both makes them Bosch. Their advanced EcoSense Wash Management System measures soil levels, then adjusts water and heat usage automatically to reduce energy usage by up to 20 percent.
Arguably the safest on earth, Bosch dishwashers are the only ones in the U.S. with AquaStop, their leak protection system that automatically detects water in the base, shuts off operation and pumps it out. On the outside, their ChildLock feature prevents little ones from opening the door or changing the wash program while a load is running.
With Bosch, sophisticated technologies aren't just ultra-efficient, they're ultra-effective, getting dishes clean and spot-free, even while using less energy and water.
Each Bosch dishwasher is designed to maximize space and flexibility, giving you the space you need to effectively organize your dishes and clean them more efficiently.
Bosch is committed to the highest, most stringent quality standards with 100 percent of dishwashers tested at the factory. Every dishwasher undergoes 485 individual quality control tests before being released from the factory. Bosch also tests its dishwashers for life, with lifetime tests for up to 4,000 wash cycles or 10 years. Bosch dishwashers' numerous awards attest to their quality and value. J.D. Power and Associates ranks Bosch "highest in satisfaction with
dishwashers, three years in a row."
This dishwasher uses 259 kWh/yr and has an estimated yearly operating cost of $28.72.
The estimated yearly operating cost is based on a 2011 national average electricity cost of $.1109 per kWh. For more information, visit www.ftc.gov/appliances.
