Comment:
This dishwasher cleans well. I rarely have to pre-wash (except with cooked on egg, which seems to be the case with most dishwashers). I love how quiet it is! I really have no complaints about this dishwasher. It does what it's supposed to do. And it looks good, too.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
People that complain about it smelling bad need to change detergents.. Cascxxde always smells terrible; use the brand that has the large label across the top of the controls... Also clean out the filter regularly.<br /><br />Our Daughter has 3 Bosch dishwashers 2 of them which are over 6 years old and they have been perfect (so is her newest one which 1.5 yr. old and in her basement bar). We replaced our GE about 6 months ago and it has been sooo nice,very quite and cleans so well. Highly recommended. We will replace our other GE dishwasher in our bar when it fails with another Bosch.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought this model because it had good reviews online, but I hate it. It does a decent job of cleaning and is very quiet, but it smells awful. I've since read other reviews about this. Im not sure what it is, but be prepared to wash your dishes daily or hold your breath when you open it. The bottom rack is also very frustrating. It falls off of the tracks half nearly every time I pull it out to load. So frustrating.
