John, Cambridge Retired

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It is very quiet
Bad points:
There are just three programmes: Intensive, Eco and Quick. There is no "normal" programme. The nearest to a normal programme is to use Intensive with the Variable Time button pressed. Maybe this is a small niggle but I think most people expect a "normal" programme. Intensive cleans well but takes ages. Eco is the mode used to achieve the energy rating but doesn't clean well (equivalent to Volkswagen's emission test cheat programme) and Quick is really only much use for teacups and other items which haven't been used for dinner.

I'm also not impressed with the plastic flaps with the top drawer: they really seem to have little purpose and just get in the way. I removed mine.

I bought this without much thought because my washing machine and fridge are Bosch. I should have spent more time researching different brands and models to make sure that the machine does what I want .... please learn from my mistake.

Good points:
Very quite based on previous Bosch I had.
Bad points:
Don't find the programming very user friendly. The Ego 50 degree I find is lengthy but if you use the vario it doesn't seem to dry to contents enough.

Evelyn, Folkestone Use every other day.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cleans the cloud off of my glasswear, and the tea stains off my mugs very well.
Bad points:
Cutlery container slots too small, and if top of rack is removed the cutlery flops around too much, also I would prefer the small plate racks to be near the front, not at the back of the dishwasher

Tom, London Retired

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fabulous washing performance. Dishes and glasses sparkling, good with saucepans too. Very quiet and energy use according to my Smartmeter much lower than my old Zanussi dishwasher.
Bad points:
Top rack layout isn't optimal for a large number of cups and mugs.

Good points:
Does exactly what it says on the box; usual Bosch quality
Bad points:
It really seems ridiculous that you have to pay as much or more for a slimline version of a full size machine.
