About - Bosch 800 Series SHX68T55UC

The Bosch 800 Series SHX68T55UC is a dishwasher available from Bosch. The 800 Series SHX68T55UC typically costs between $799.00 - $999.99.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on dishwasher models like the 800 Series SHX68T55UC.


Ample flatware slots:
Flatware baskets with lids provide individual slots for most of the utensils in our silverware load. Such lids prevent "nesting" and thus improve flatware cleaning. It is more time-consuming to load the cutlery into individual slots, though, so you can remove the lids if you prefer.

Adjustable upper rack:
Most models hold cups and glasses on the top rack, plates on the lower rack, and silverware in a basket. The ability to adjust the upper rack up or down an inch or so allows for more flexibility in loading items such as tall glasses.

Sensor:
A sensor adjusts water usage and cycle time to the amount of soil on the dishes. This should make a dishwasher use water more efficiently, but we found that wasn't always the case. Moreover, a sensor can increase a machine's running time.

Tested Model
The Ratings of Bosch 800 Series SHE68T55UC were applied to untested model Bosch 800 Series SHX68T55UC, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.

Comment:
This is our 5th dishwasher over many years and is without a doubt the best one yet. This machine is so quiet you have to get pretty close to hear anything at all. Does an amazing job of cleaning. Does better at drying if you use the sanitize option and even better if you use the extra shine option which supposedly adds a little time to the cycle but everything comes out spotless and dry. Love the third rack in the top and it works great for silverware, utensils and other small items. It holds a lot more than silverware baskets so we've not used the basket yet which leaves more room in the bottom for other things. Very impressed with the performance and quiet. Time will tell on reliability but CR reliability ratings show Bosch at the top.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I wanted to wait at least a month before reviewing. This dishwasher is AWESOME!! The 3rd drawer for mixing spoons, etc makes this well worth the money. We wanted to see how long we could go between washes. We never went a day before. 3 days!! Got to work at loading to do that but always clean dishes and without the running light, you cannot tell it's on standing right in front of it. I studied for 2 weeks before purchase. I am very happy.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
Takes time to get used to not having heating element to air dry which is common in domestic dishwasher but then it saves energy.<br /><br />Somebody has mentioned two tone steel - let me guess.. it is about inch below the handle bar and goes all the way down, correct? If yes then it is a clear plastic film. It is hard to see as a film but you can take it out.
