Tony, Frequent user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, shows time left to end of programme and is much quieter than our previous Bosch. We can now hear our kitchen TV.
Bad points:
Normal programmes can be upto 3hrs long. But I suppose it does give that 'they are clean confidence'.

Susan, Douglas (Isle of Man) Frequent user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really quiet machine when running.
30 minute wash cycle is excellent.
Don't mind putting it on every day even when it is not full.
Looks so smart in black
Bad points:
The normal cycles are a bit long but I very rarely need to use these because the 30 minute cycle is so good.
Top basket is not the best design. Mugs fall over, would be better if wire base of basket was flatter.
Not much room for cereal/pudding bowls.
These are only very minor niggles though.

Pamela, gravesend Frequent user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
bosch machine looks good, but going on the performance of my old bosch machine, I am dissappointed with the drying finish of this one.. Very quiet and cleans the dishes but not as dry as previous one.
Bad points:
the wash cycles are far too long, no way does it take 3 hours to was dishes, I always use the speed button to shorten the cycle to 1.hr 40 mins, cleans the dishes fine,
