We built our kitchen just over 3 years ago and made the brilliant decision to install a fully integrated dishwasher. We plumpted for the Bosh because it seemed to have good reviews and of course it's a name that you can trust. Although I do think that dishwashers and kitchen appliances are a much of a muchness these days. We previously had a Neff dishwasher in our old kitchen and hardly ever used the thing - apart from each Christmas and the odd dinner party, so I didn't really want to spend major bucks on this.
We received the dishwasher and my husband successfully installed it. Of course they recommend that you use a plumber, but you only have to connect 2 water pipes and then plug it in, of and fit a outer door to complete the look. PLEASE NOTE: that if you are designing and building a kitchen allow an extra 5mm for the dishwasher (65mm in total) we didn't do this when we fitted the cabinets. Now that the dishwasher has bedded in pulling the door down now can be very tight.
Make sure that you stock up on dishwasher tablets, special salt and use a special cleaning agent (bottle of deodoriser solution with wax top) that you sit in the machine alone to ensure it gets cleaned every 6 months or so.
We probably use our dishwasher once or twice a month, not everyday. But the 2 trays are great to pull out and pop back in.
It's not that pretty to look at from the outside but who cares as it's an integrated machine. It's overall size is H 810mm x W 450mm x D 550mm) It contains a large main rack for big items and includes a very handy cutlery holder. It has a smaller top rack for cups and smaller objects. It's energy rating is A which means it's light on energy and water usage.
It has 4 programme wash temperatures, choose one that suits your needs and load i.e. if the washing up is only lightly soiled and it's half empty then choose option 1. If your crocks are heavily soiled and there are lots of them then you'll need the longer, warmer and more powerful option 3 or 4. All my dishes etc come out literally squeaky clean and sparkling.

Having any old dishwasher just isn't the same as having a bosch dishwasher. The Bosch dishwasher is really easy to set and when it's on there's a red light that shines on the floor and when it's finally finished It beepes five times every five minutes just to let you know that it's finished and that's great when it daytime but if you put it on at night time the beeping is loud so it will keep you awake if your trying to get to sleep.
As to the dishwashing it's great, even the shortest amount of time in the Bosch dishwasher gets most of the dirt and grim off of any plates, pots, pans, glasses and cutlery.
Bosch as a make is brilliant quality, they make excellnt drills, washing machines, condencer dyrers, fridges, frezzers and great dishwashers.
If you ask me the Bosch dishwashers is one of the best on the market but not one of the cheapest. I would deffinatly recomend spending the extra money.
i had never ised dishwasher before but after moving into a new house which was already equiped with one i finally had my dream come true. this dish washer WORKS its good cleans my dishes and pans gets them to shine for me without me having to get my hands wet and gritty!!! it is very simple to operate even though when i first looked at it i thought how how and how do i get u up and running. but it was easyyyyyyyyy piece of cake its not that noisyit has an built in aqua stop device which prevents FLOODING (great thing to have)once the washing is complete it will let you know by bleeping No problems with integration under a 60cm worktop.
Internal space is more limited than a 60cm wide unit but if you've got a lot of washing to do you can always quickly wash the plates on a fast wash (approx 35 minutes), then do all the pans afterwards on a hotter and longer setting.
i would recommend this its very good no problems with it since weve moved in previous owners had this for afew months and weve had it for a year. not sure about life line on dishwashers worth while looking into this, as i said this is first dishwasher to be used by myself, still i recommend
