Comment:
At the time I bought this dishwasher there were a lot of negative comments on Bosch dishwashers. I have absolutely love my dishwasher! We are renting homes in a few areas trying to decide where we want to live before buying. Our current rental had a builder's grade dishwasher which was very loud and did not clean anything very well. This Bosch is the exact opposite. I would recommend this item to all of my friends.
