Jenny, West London Retired

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Our previous Bosch counter top dishwasher was horrendously noisy. Bosch have addressed this and this latest model is whisper quiet. The cutlery holder can be placed in different positions dependent on the load.
Bad points:
I preferred the configuration of previous models which enabled me to fit more crockery in the dishwasher. With this model, the spikes of the plate racks are too close together so plates have to be spaced out more to be cleaned well. Also, there is no specific place for bowls - as for the plates, each bowl uses two spikes, in effect halving the amount of space available.

Val, Doncaster Frequent user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is the second Bosch compact dishwasher I have bought, so there are obviously positive aspects. It fits almost perfectly in the small space under the worktop (though it is a little deeper than the last one!) and cleans the items well. It is also possible to use tablets in this machine whereas it wasn't in the first one.Salt indicator is useful.
Bad points:
The last one 'died' more because of the door coming loose and being impossible to fix. The screws sheered off from the body of the machine. I am really hoping that Bosch have remedied this problem. I find the organisation of the interior much more difficult to manage. Large plates are awkward to put in and then there is no room for a full row of mugs.

Easy loading for a compact dishwasher (including large dinner plates & tall wine glasses).
Sparkling clean dishes in 45mins on quick wash.

Robin, Leytonstone, London Retired

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The standard of cleaning is good.
Bad points:
There are only 3 washing cycles. Two take 3 hours, and one 29 min, though the supplementary info sheet clearly states that one of the 3 hour cycles completes in 1 h15m. The instruction booklet is opaque; I tried again and again to change the salt and rinse aid features and eventually managed to change only the salt. In despair, I resorted to the web to see if others had experienced the same problems and was gratified to find that I was by no means the only one who had experienced problems understanding this machine. Problem is that there is not a huge range of compact dishwashers, so you're stuck.

Size, build quality
Bad points:
You can fit a deceptive amount of stuff in there, but it's like Tetris every time you load it!
