Reviews Bosch Dishwasher- SHE3ARL5UC

Looking for reviews Bosch dishwasher SHE3ARL5UC? - we've made your work easier when searching for the perfect dishwasher. We’ve done all the leg-work, scouring the internet and summarizing both the key features and customer feedback for this model, right here in one place!

This Bosch dishwasher, SHE3ARL5UC, is a large capacity built-in model, which can accommodate up to 12 place settings in a stainless steel tall-tub.

With 5 cycles, attractive design, “EcoSense Energy Star” water technology, and the prestigious Bosch name, this model has many features a savvy consumer would want.

Many consumers loved not only stainless steel tub, but the energy saving features, and cleaning capabilities. Well placed controls and a sleek design make it a pretty fancy addition to any kitchen set-up. Consumers agree that this product seems to be built well and is very sturdy, expected to go the long run.

However, there were quite a few common gripes. It seemed that most people unanimously agreed that the tub could not conveniently be loaded (some people had to bend the spokes to get items to fit in a logical manner), and the load capacity overall was much smaller than expected.

Due to both of those problems, users found that they had to run at least two loads (which sort of takes away from the Energy Star ratings, don’t you think?).

Another common problem seemed to be that the drying capabilities were sorely lacking. And a handful of people also reported that it did not clean dishes thoroughly if not pre-washed. With a price tag of close to $700 on most sites, this is not a cheap dishwasher.

What does this mean for you?

If quiet running cycles, a prestigious name, and an excellent Energy Star rating is all that is important to you, then this could be your ideal dishwasher.

If, on the other hand, you expect a $700 dishwasher to not require pre-washing, or hand-drying, or the bending of prongs in order to fit an average load of dishes for your family, this might not be your best choice.
