Bosch has more than 55 years of experience creating high-quality appliances, and Bosch dishwashers are especially highly sought after in today's market. The company has come a long way since its founding in 1967: it is currently renowned for making reliable, high-end kitchen appliances at a price point that makes Bosch dishwashers accessible to just about anyone. Their dishwashers often last much longer than dishwashers from competing brands, meaning that you'll certainly get your money's worth! In this post, we'll take a deep dive into what makes Bosch dishwashers such a good investment, and what features to look out for with your next appliance purchase.
Easy, Customizable Loading
There are a lot of features that make Bosch dishwashers super quick and easy to load. FlexSpace™ Tines, which are available in nearly all Bosch dishwashers, fold back easily to accommodate any shape of dishes. Even the largest pots and pans can fit easily into any rack of your Bosch dishwasher. The RackMatic® System, meanwhile, lets you place the upper rack of your Bosch dishwasher at any one of three angles and three height levels, allowing nine different configurations to suit any size of pot and pan.
Whether you prefer powder or gel detergent, or even if you use detergent tabs, look for Bosch's Optimized Detergent Tray to help dissolve your dish detergent. This tray reduces noise and conserves water by spraying a single jet of water directly at your detergent, dissolving it quickly and completely without needing to spray water toward the door.
If you like ease-of-use features, the EasyGlide™ Rack System makes it easy to slide the upper rack of your Bosch dishwasher; it starts and stops on a dime, even when the rack is completely loaded. This makes it much easier to load and unload your dishes than with a standard dishwasher.
Specialized Cycles and Options
Bosch dishwashers have a huge number of specialized cycles and options that you can use to clean any soiled dishes, regardless of dish type or soil level. You can reduce the time you spend washing your dishes if you don't have a lot of them to do by using Bosch's Half Load option. This option can save water and energy, as well as saving you money. Bosch is known for their energy saving appliances, as they earned the 2021 ENERGY STAR partner of the year.
Alternately, look for the ExtraScrub Option that increases the temperature and pressure of your wash cycle, for heavily soiled pots and pans. Meanwhile, PrecisionWash technology dynamically scans your dishes and customizes the water temperature and cycle length to fit your soil levels, and the Speed60 Cycle gets lightly soiled loads clean in less than an hour. Finally, the HygienePlus Cycle is an anti-bacterial cycle that increases the water temperature in your dishwasher to 70° Celsius, ensuring the highest level of hygiene.
If you want your dishes dried quickly, the CrystalDry™ technology available in many Bosch dishwashers transforms moisture into heat, which gets your dishes up to 60% more dry than traditional dishwashers. This ease of use even extends to plastics!
Convenience and Comfort
Bosch dishwashers are among the most convenient ones you can have in your kitchen. The EcoSilence Drive™ motors on many models use magnetic power instead of carbon brushes, increasing power and reducing noise levels in your kitchen. Meanwhile, the AutoAir™ option automatically opens the dishwasher to let fresh air in as soon as the cycle finishes, so you don't have to.
AquaStop Plus® sensors detect and automatically contain leaks using a dual sensor system, and the overflow protection system detects leaks even when the dishwasher isn't running, preventing leakage even when you aren't at home.
Knowing how quiet Bosch dishwashers are, you may forget you have yours running. The InfoLight projects a red light onto the floor while your dishwasher is running, turning it off when the cycle ends.
Are Bosch dishwashers worth the money?
Bosch dishwashers are nearly always worth the initial cost! They are known for having up to 30% higher capacity than many of their competitors, as well as some of the quietest engines on today's market.
Where are Bosch appliances made?
Bosch predominantly makes appliances for the North American market in its factory in North Carolina. This makes most Bosch appliances (including dishwashers) American-made and built. Only a few Bosch Benchmark dishwasher models are made in Germany.
