Advantages

When it comes to getting dishes clean, this dishwasher does the job well. One of the great things about this dishwasher is that it is Energy Star-certified, which means that it does not only cleans your dishes, but it also makes sure that it uses the least amount of energy possible in order to do so.

It also minimizes the use of water, so you get to save on that too, which translates to additional savings. It has two pumps that minimize noise, and you can be sure that this runs quietly and won't disturb you as you go about other tasks while the dishes are being cleaned. There's also the sanitize option that kills bacteria and aims to enhance the drying of cookware.

Disadvantages

Some users have complained about the drying ability of this dishwasher. Since Bosch dishwashers use a technology called condensation drying, not all plates come out dry. Ceramic and metal dishes may dry sharp, and plastic dishes sometimes come out dripping.

Others have also complained about loose parts and problems with the motor. Others have also complained that this dishwasher doesn't remove coffee or tea stains from cups.
