Who is a Bosch Dishwasher Right For?

Bosch dishwashers are considered the top choice for homeowners who require an ultra-quiet dishwasher that won’t abrupt daily routines or that won’t resonate throughout an open concept floor plan. A range of technologies makes Bosch the Quietest Dishwasher Brand in the U.S. with impressively low decibel levels, ranging from 40 to 50 dBA. With multiple insulation layers, grind-less food filtration, and a sound-absorbing base, you don’t have to wait until bedtime to run your appliance.

In addition, Bosch dishwashers appeal to customers who want to invest in a reliable dishwasher that will last you for many years to come. Bosch is one of the few manufacturers that offers a wide assortment of dishwashers that are suitable for a broader spectrum of budgets. Speaking of flexibility, there are Bosch dishwasher models in panel-ready finishes that disappear into your gorgeous cabinetry and in 18-inch widths if you’d like to install one near your at-home bar.

On the other hand, Bosch dishwashers may not be suited to households that are on a tight budget and want a dishwasher for under $599. And if you live in an area with hard water and need a dishwasher with a water softener, Bosch does not have a big selection with that built-in amenity. Lastly, if you’d like to install a dishwasher drawer or use a portable dishwasher, Bosch does not yet accommodate these installation requirements.
