I have had this dishwasher for a couple of months now. Our old one broke which was also a bosch dishwasher but we had had it for years and is a very reliable make.
There are different settings which include a quick wash. It takes approx 30mins to compete this cycle and as long as there is no food purnt onto the pan on on a baking tray then this gets the dishes perfectly clean.
There is a normal setting which takes a lot longer and will really get those tough stains off but is not worth it unless the stains are really bad.
The best tablets to put in the dishwasher is those finish all in one. We have tried some other brands but they seemed to leave residue on the plates and was not very nice to eat off.
Overall this is a very good dishwasher and would definetly recommend it. It also has a timer that counts down on it so you can see when your dishes will be ready.
The Bosch SGS45C08 24 in / Portable Dishwasher has 4 wash programms / Also, this dishwasher is sound insulated for a quiet operation / Short name: Bosch SGS45C08
