I bought this dishwasher 4 years ago and it is still going strong. Bosch applicances tend to be tough and long lasting (even my plumber agrees).
As I have a small kitchen, I bought the 45cm model (half size). Whilst it doesn't have as much space as the full size model, you can still stack 10-12 plates and still have space for a saucepan and frying pan in the bottom rack.
The top rack is sturdy and can take quite a lot of weight (I put my supposed-to-be-handwashed japanese bowls here).
The buttons are very intuitive (I've never read the manual as the labels on top of the buttons (e.g. Normal 65 deg; Eco 50 deg, Quick 35 deg) are intuitive and self explanatory.
Unlike some dishwashers, this model has a quick wash cycle which I use daily, saving time, water and electricity.
The only drawback I can see is the compartment for putting in the dishwasher tablet sometimes gets stuck (the release mechanism isn't very good) and at times, I find the tablet still in it, after the wash cycle has completed.
This dishwasher which I have had for the last three years has served well and have been happy with the wash on my dishes.
The Bosch SRS43A02GB is a family size dishwasher. It has 4 settings
Normal 65 degrees
eco 50 degrees
quick wash 35 degrees
There is a LED display on the front for rinse aid, salt and when the programme has finished.
Inside the washer there are two shelves plus a compartment for your cutlery. The bottom shelf can hold around 25 plates and the cutlery tray around 50 forks and knives. The top shelf is better for glasses as you have a plastic flap each side which comes down and has grooves in it to hold your glass stem in place so they dont fall over. Also the plastic flaps are used for large knives, spatulas etc. I also find I can put around 6 saucepans inside if I havent got many plates or glasses to wash. Inside the pull down door is the compartment for your dishwasher tablet.
The normal cycle takes around two hours to clean, eco around and hour and the quick wash around 30 minutes.
I find this machine very quiet you dont know it is even on. Only little gripe I would have is that the dishes sometimes are not as dry as I would like.
