The EcoSense technology also reduces energy usage by up to 20%. Not only is the dishwasher an extremely energy-efficient machine, the Bosch SHX45L05UC also allows half load washing for those small dishwashing loads. Dishes of all sizes will easily fit into the machine, as the racks are adjustable and the tub allows items up to 22" tall to fit inside. The dishwasher also ensures clean dishes with its NSF certification that proves that the washing technology eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria.


The high performance machine is quite expensive as it retails at more than a thousand dollarsh. One can choose to pay such an amount of money for a superb machine or look for another dishwasher class that performs just as well but will cost a lot less.

The dishwasher features are not unique to the Bosch series and are available in several other dishwashers. Also, the machine lacks certain features such as the child lock, glass protection, and a mezzanine rack.
