Comment:
Beautiful and quiet if that's all you require. Other than that it is downhill all the way. I never put glasses or cups away without checking for gunk. 70% of the time they require hand washing. I thought it was the size of the load so I reduced. Still the same outcome. If anything is in the way of a water jet that piece comes out dirty. My daughter's way cheaper brand does a great job. Just because it costs more doesn't mean it IS better.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

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
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
