Brian, North Devon Frequent user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It's quite and has a two year warranty.
Bad points:
I would advise any one who is thinking of getting one of these dishwashers to go to the Bosch website first and look at the instruction video. I wish I had, the first couple of times I used this machine the dishes were coming out wet and dirty even after a two hour forty five minute wash program! By watching the video it turns out that I wasn’t stacking the dishes properly or opening the door after the program had finished to allow the moisture out.

Our old dishwasher (not a Bosch) worked well for eleven years. Last thing at night all we had to do was shove everything in the dishwasher, turn a knob and press start. The next morning we would put away the clean, dry dishes, and that was all there was to it.

The point I’m trying to make is that if a simple time/labour saving device needs an instruction video for you to use it properly then in my mind the appliance is too complicated. So much so that with our old dishwasher it was a shared job of loading/unloading the dishes now with this new model it’s solely my responsibility and therefore, as you can imagine, I cannot recommend this model.

Other bad points are; the stainless steel front panel shows finger marks, changing the program is fiddly, the installation guide is hard work and the user instruction book is not easy to follow.
