The SHE6AP05UC dishwasher is a Bosch offering that is as reliable as other Bosch dishwasher models. There are a lot to cheer about when it comes to the reduction of energy. Consumers will be happy with their savings on water and power bills. There are also a lot of features that focus on complete cleaning, inside and out, of the dishes, which should be the whole point of dishwashers, anyway.


The problem with the SHE6AP05UC dishwasher is not so much on the price but what the price could have offered instead. Some Bosch models cost about the same but can offer more. Though the dishwasher in focus offers good performance, it pales in comparison to other Bosch dishwashers. It lacks other features such as the built-in food disposer and water softener.
