After years of using my Sears employee discount to purchase Kenmore related products ,I decided to splurge and go with a Bosch dishwasher.
I purchased my new Bosch SHE33MO(2)UC from Bob Miller appliances in the South Bend IN area.
The cost as expected was high and the additional add on for the stainless steel even made it more expensive.
However the performance of the Bosch dishwasher was exceptional in most areas. Their was no question that it was quiet compared to my 6 year old Kenmore. My family and I could easily watch television or listen to music with the dishwasher running its cycles.
It has been extremely reliable and problem free except for the drying area.
Its kind of amazing to me for all of the money that I spent on this dishwasher that their really isn't any drying cycle.
The only way to really dry the dishes etc is to leave the dishwasher door open a few inches for air to circulate.
I usually take a spoon and wedge it between the door and the frame of the dishwasher.
Except for this oddity of drying I like the Bosch dishwasher very much.
