Rated 5 out of 5 by from Submitted as part of a selected review panel.Submitted as part of a selected review panel. An outstanding dishwasher with excellent cleaning capabilities! Model tested/reviewed: (SMS50C26UK) Bosch Serie 4, 60cm Freestanding ActiveWater Dishwasher in black. Overall rating: Excellent. This is an excellent dishwasher with fantastic overall cleaning capabilities while combining great looks, simple functionality and an overall quiet operation. This model makes an excellent dishwasher to own and use and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a new or a replacement dishwasher. Upon every use and regardless of the wash cycle settings, the dishwasher did a great job cleaning everything placed in it. Plates, mugs, bowls, silverware all cleaned well, even a non-rinsed dish that had dried on lasagne! We made a point of putting the dirtiest items we could in the dishwasher to test its capability and we were more than happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more space than our previous dishwasher.**Submitted as part of a selected review panel** The Bosch Dishwasher - Series 4 (SMS50C26UK) is bigger than our previous dishwasher. The upper rack has an extra row in it, which makes each row smaller, but once you get used to it you can fit so much more in. In our previous dishwasher the shelves were flimsy and you wouldn’t rest anything on them. In the Bosch, you can put long utensils on the top shelf which reduces the danger of jamming the rotor from the cutlery basket. I also think the upper rack is also lower allowing more room to fit things on the top shelf. It arrived just before Christmas so has already been tested with heavy frequency. I think it went on three times on New Year’s Eve alone. But under this pressure it still delivered squeaky clean, not too hot plates and dishes. In fact, the only thing I have found stuck to a bowl was a small piece of porridge but as that’s the closest food gets to wallpaper paste, I am not too worried about this. There is a button that can cut down the cycle time of the dishwasher. We haven’t used it. We’re a busy family and we generally put the dishwasher on after dinner, unload in the morning and start afresh. Over Christmas I did use the quick wash function because it was just tea and cake (Lots of cake) and it was very useful. On the negative side, it’s a tighter squeeze on the top shelf, which takes some practice to get things in the right place and the dishwasher tablet space is really small. Neither of these are life changing and neither affect the performance at the end of the day. One of the superficially pleasing aspects is how clean the dishwasher looks inside when the door is opened. The inside of the door is so shiny! And the cups don’t have you doing some “too hot dance” to try and get them into the cupboard before they are cooled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMS50C26UK - My Beautiful Black DishwasherSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. I am very pleased with this machine. It looks good and it performs well. The control fascia is pretty well streamlined and this means that it isn't a dirt trap. The controls are simple and easy to use with a sensible number of programs to cover my needs. There is a clear countdown timer that shows how long the programme has still to run and you can set a delay so that the machine starts at a specified time. The wash is efficient and effective and I am particularly impressed with the shine on my stainless steel cutlery. I do use rinse aid. The inside of the machine is easy to access with no awkward places for loading purposes. The racks are sturdy and glide smoothly into place. The only issues I have are related to stacking. I would prefer a top-level cutlery tray instead of the basket as the basket restricts the amount of dishes than can be packed into the racks but this is a personal preference and, perhaps, a lot to ask for the price-level of this machine. I'd also like to see a place to retain small plastic items such as ice-lolly holders and children's egg cups. Festive dinners have provided the perfect opportunity to test the spray head at the rear of the machine with some baked-on roasting and baking trays. We used the hot wash for this. What a great job! My grill tray hasn't looked so good for years. So, a great reasonably-priced machine with a few minor irritations but nothing that should lose it a star in my overall rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMS50C26UK Bosch DishwasherSubmitted as part of a review panel.....looks very stylish and very easy to use. I love the fact it has options for half load and quick wash as well as hardware selection. Very impressed with its performance am over the moon with it. Handled the full load of pots and plates with ease my glasses came out gleaming. Would highly recommend this model to anyone I haven't stopped talking about it to my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant DishwasherBought this dishwasher 2 months ago and very pleased with it. Cleaned brilliantly each wash. Eco wash is quite long at 3hrs 30mins but just put it on after evening meal and is ready before going to bed. There is a timer delay so you can set it to come on at a convenient time for yourself. Nothing negative to say. It's really quiet and efficient and using only 9.5 lyre of water is very economical and good for the environment.
