If you’re in the market for a dependable dishwasher, two brands you may want to consider are Beko and Bosch.
Both brands have established solid reputations for themselves in the appliance field, and both have earned a number of awards for both product quality and energy efficiency. And while Bosch as been a well-known brand in the states for over a century, Beko is a fairly recent arrival to U.S shores but has been making a name for themselves quickly. Here, the experts at Appliances Connection are pitting Beko vs Bosch dishwashers to see which brand has the most to offer in different facets you will want to consider when purchasing a new unit.
So, without further ado, lets see which dishwasher comes out on top…
Beko has an appreciably lower price range, with their most pricey dishwasher available for just under $1,300. And two of their most affordable dishwashers--the Beko DDT25400XP 24-Inch Built-In Dishwasher and the Beko DIS25841 18-Inch Built-In Dishwasher cn be had for under $500.
Bosch dishwashers are available in a fairly wide range, with some of the most expensive having a price tag of just over two thousand dollars. But they also offer much more affordable items with the Bosch SHX3AR75UC 100 Series 24-Inch Built-In Bar Handle Dishwasher coming in at the low price of $624.00.
If you’re looking for an affordable dishwasher, then it would appear that Beko is be the right choice.
Beko offers a great many of quiet dishwashers with low decibel levels, going as low as 39 dBA. However, most of their washers have a noise level of 45 to 49 dBA, which is about the same sound level as a running refrigerator.
Bosch turns out some of the of the quietest dishwashers on the market with many operating from 44 dBA and lower. A prime example of one of their least intrusive washers is the Series 24 Inch Built-In Bar Handle Dishwasher with a noise level of just 40 dBA.
While both brands offer very quiet performance, we have to hand it to Bosch for having the larger number of low dBA washers.
Beko dishwashers are of a simple, clean design that will easily integrate into any kitchen, coming in several variations of stainless steel, black, white, along with models that accept custom panels for a flawless kitchen décor.
Bosch dishwashers are sleek and unobtrusive, with several models featuring a smooth, inward scoop handle. And while the majority of their washers come in stainless steel, they are also available in black and white. Bosch also has models that can accept custom panels.
Given that dishwashers tend not to stray too far from the standard form to begin with, we’ll have to call this category an even match between Beko and Bosch.
Now, we get to what really matters in a dishwasher—the features that enable the machine to do its job. Let’s take a look at a pair of comparably-priced units from each brand and see what they have to offer.
For Beko we’re putting forward their DDT39432X 24-Inch Smart Built-In Dishwasher:

And for Bosch’s example, we’re going to look at their SPX68U55UC 800 Series 18 Inch Built-In Bar Handle Dishwasher:

Both brands have plenty of modern innovations, but Beko has a bit more to offer while only being slightly more costly.
Taking all of these dishwasher aspects into consideration, we have to give the slight edge to Beko when it comes to overall quality and features while also having the more affordable range of units. Though if you’re looking for a high-end dishwasher, Bosch would be the better choice. But in the end, you are the only judge that matters when it comes to which brand is right for you.
