Amazing capacity in small footprint

Nantucket_gal 12/11/2018

Summer home challenge: small kitchen, many guests, lots of dishes & glasses to wash. This was a great solution whether it's just the two of us or up to six people. Fits tableware for up to two meals for six people. Only wish is that upper rack had a bit more flexibility to fit larger mugs and specialty glasses.

Bought this over 2 years ago thinking I was purchasing the best dishwasher. Have already spent over $600.00 on repairs.

Button Labels are all gone in just 3 years!

I feel ashamed to pay high price for such a bad product with the name of Bosch. None of the words "power", "Delay", "Start" etc. are visible any more on the top panel of the door. Very frustrating. The dishes coming out of wash are not always clean either.

Perfect for Our Small Space

Reg1 7/1/2015

We purchased a home with a very small kitchen and the only way to fit a dishwasher in was to use a 18" wide one. We previously owned a full size Bosch and this one is even quieter than it was.

Quiet and sleek

kylefree 4/4/2015

I've had the dishwasher for two months and I'm happy with the purchase. The product installed easily, is built solid, and very quiet. Loading the unit takes some getting used to, but I've finally figured out what works best for me. The regular cycle takes longer than I would have thought but the results are fabulous.

So Quiet Lots of room

eveken 10/18/2014

Love this dishwasher. It holds so much because it is so flexible. So quiet you only hear the water running out not running in!! Just amazing what a small unit can do. My old Kenmore was nowhere near as good as this one.
