  • Automatic programmes Water usage, water temperature and rinse time are adjusted exactly to suit the level of soiling. This provides best results while saving water and energy.

  • DosageAssist The DosageAssist ensures optimal cleaning results and a quieter wash. The detergent drops out the detergent dispenser and into a special tray on the top basket where it gets completely dissolved.
  • AquaSensor
    AquaSensor The AquaSensor regulates the water usage depending on the type and degree of soiling, using light beams to manage the rinse. Depending on remaining food particles, grease or detergent residues in the rinse, the rinsing process is assessed to evaluate whether it needs to be continued.
  • Heat Exchanger
    Heat Exchanger Dishwashers with heat exchangers treat precious glasses and porcelain with particular care and no risks. Water is pre-heated in the rinsing tank to avoid any temperature shocks.

  • LoadSensor
    LoadSensor The load weight is detected by a rotary speed sensor which recognizes the water level. For bigger loads, more water is needed to soak the dishes and the water level decreases. In that case more water is added. For smaller loads, less water is needed for rinsing. The load sensor provides for optimal water usage even for half loads or partial loads, saving water and electricity.
  • IntensiveZone option
    IntensiveZone option The IntensiveZone option, which can be added to many programmes, ensures a higher spraying pressure and increases the temperature in the lower basket. Heavily soiled pots and pans are cleaned optimally whilst more delicate dishes can be placed in the upper basket.

  • VarioFlex basket system The VarioFlex basket system stands for top flexibility inside the silver-colored baskets. The upper basket features four movable elements (two foldable racks and two shelves) and offers room for glasses, saucers, cups and cutlery as well as for long-stemmed wine glasses and pots. Thanks to four moveable foldable racks there is also room for larger pots and dishes.

  • Electronic delay timer
    Electronic delay timer With the time delay function you can pre-select the programme for the desired start time. This allows you to handle your appliance conveniently, at any time during the day, during work hours or at night. After the start of the programme a display indicates the precise remaining time.

  • Child lock on door A child-proof door lock prevents the door from being opened and the programme being altered during the cycle. This prevents injuries caused by hot steam and accidental adjustments to the programme settings.

  • Glass protection technology Because soft water causes glass corrosion, Bosch dishwashers with glass protection technology constantly regulate the degree of hardness. This is how we ensure that valuable glasses and delicate china are always washed with special care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designedI bought this after reading reviews from many sites and it lives up to all the compliments. Well designed and amazingly quiet, at first I actually wondered if it was working as it was so silent. So far everything has come out really clean and sparkling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long, long washing timesI had a Bosch dishwasher for 17 years and it was very good. The 'eco' wash took around 30 minutes and was adequate for most conditions. The eco wash on this model takes 3 hours 30 minutes! If you put it on at breakfast it is still going at lunchtime! The intensive wash takes 2 hours 40 mins. The only quick option is a light wash @ 30mins. This is my default wash but sometimes i have to run it twice. I wish i had checked cycle times before I bought it but I suppose most machines are the same. The other gripe is that the ledges for the glasses/mugs are very narrow and my wine glasses do not fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dishwasher I've had. Quick, Auto or Eco modesI got this installed on Christmas Eve and I'm so glad I did. The quick start leaflet meant I could try it out straight away and read the manual in more depth later. The default eco mode takes a while but does a brilliant job. My pans are spotless! The quick mode takes about 30 minutes and was a godsend on Christmas day with all the family round. I didn't have to start washing-up between courses. It's a lot quieter than my previous dishwasher - I wasn't sure it was actually running at first. I think my favourite part is where the instructions say don't rinse your plates. It copes with egg, mash, and any dried food on plates/pans/jugs. It somehow holds more than my last dishwasher too, The raised blue handle on the lower tray makes it easier to slide out and I can do tall glasses and vases in the adjustable upper. We had to remove the top to fit it under the worktop and even that was in the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dishwasher (SMS53M02GB)Submitted as part of a selected review panel This is by far the best dishwasher I have ever had. My favourite features are the quick wash, which only takes 29 mins - I have found that this cleans even the dirtiest pots and pans! The dishes literally come out sparkling and with no smears whatsoever. (Unlike my previous dishwashers, which weren't Bosch...) Another feature which I particularly like is that this dishwasher is so quiet, you wouldn't even know it is on! Also, when the cycle finishes, it automatically switches itself off, so you are saving energy. The load capacity is great - my biggest pots fit in there comfortably. I like all the sections, for example the slots for your kitchen knives etc. So far, I have used the dishwasher every day without fail in the three weeks I have had it and am extremely happy with it. I use it once a day, for the whole day's dishes. Even if you put something in the machine in the morning, and wash the dishes in the evening, everything still comes out really clean even if food has dried on. My only downside is that the manual that came with it seems slightly different to the actual machine, so I haven't used all the programmes, because I haven't been able to work them out. Also, the bottom front edges are slightly sharp, which you need to be careful with if you have vinyl flooring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Bosch AgainSubmitted as part of a selected review panel This is my second Bosch dishwasher Firstly this model is simple to install, i am rubbish at diy but if I can install it anyone can Just one power plug and just connect to cold water inlet and your waste pipe 10 minutes and your ready to go I have had this model now for over two weeks and have used all the programmes and it cleans all my cookware extremely clean, it deals with porridge dried onto bowls no problems at all Glasses come out clean with no smears It deals with plastics okay but still slightly wet, this model does not have the extra dry function so if you have a lot of Tupperware I would go for the next model up The only slightly negative issue is this model upper basket has less ability to change its configuration to your needs than my previous model which gets frustrating as you have constantly find different ways of fitting all your cleaning in I'm sure the next model up has the better basket for configuration This dishwasher cleans everything very well and I've never had a problem with my previous model which I had over 5 years
