Comment:
I moved into a new Condo several months ago and it came complete with a Frigidare Stainless Look Dishwasher that was a lower-line Builder's Grade appliance. After months of horrible washing performance, I chose this Bosch model as a replacement. To say I'm thrilled with the performance of the Bosch would be an understatement: it looks great, it is eerily silent during operation, and best of all it cleans superbly - often with just a small amount of powdered detergent. A Sanitize option heats the water to a high temperature that speeds up drying. Sometimes plastics come out wet, but that is my only minor gripe. I was able to purchase this Bosch on sale and I see frequently see it advertised at a special price.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
