Sizing Up the Product

The Bosch SHE3ARL2UC is a full console dishwasher that is big on saving energy but low on noise. Bosch products are generally known for their quality German engineering so we’ve decided to put this machine to the test to determine if it meets the mark and really is as good as the hype suggests.

The Bosch SHE3ARL2UC is a full sized dishwasher, with a full console control panel that allows you to adjust settings with ease. 

The Bosch SHE3ARL2UC has:

  • A capacity of up to 14 place settings
  • Stainless steel tub with polypropylene
  • Silverware basket with fold down cover to separate utensils for through cleaning
  • A self-latching door that locks in place and stays put to prevent leaks

Performance Capabilities

This Bosch offering features five wash cycles and is said to save over 280 gallons of water per year. It also won the 2011 Energy Star award and this energy saving quality makes it a great option for use in small restaurants and cafes. According to the efficiency ratings, it exceeds Energy Star requirements for water use by up to 69%.

Another standout feature is the 39 dBa silence rating which makes it the quietest dishwasher on the market and quietest in the whole of North America actually.


It is worth noting that this machine does not have a glass care or delicate cycle and this might be an issue for those that intend on using it to clean glassware.

It also does not have sensors that can determine the load size.

Performance wise, the SHE3ARL2UC seems to give the user a lot of options as it allows you to sanitise items and get rid of bacteria or enhance the water pressure for hard to clean items.

The Bosch SHE3ARL2UC also features

  • A 30 minute express wash
  • Round the clock overflow leak protection
  • 3, 6 or 9 hour delay start setting

Substance Over Style?

The SHE3ARL2UC isn’t a particularly stylish number; it is very conventional and conservative in terms of design. It does not feature a display panel on the control console.

Nevertheless it does win points in our Bosch dishwasher reviews comparison for functionality of design with its innovative cover separator that holds your forks and spoons individually. This ensures that the utensils do not nest together and are cleaned thoroughly.

The Lowdown From Users

Users submitting Bosch dishwashers reviews consistently praise the machine’s low noise capabilities and its efficiency.

  • P Philips says that while the machine appears more compact than his previous model, it can actually hold a lot more plates; as the tines on the dish rack are placed close together. He went on to say that plates come out spotless and without watermarks.
  • A user from New York says that it works well on the heavy wash setting but was not effective at the normal setting. Nevertheless this sentiment has not been echoed by many other users who laud its overall performance.
