Bosch is a German company founded in the late 19th century. It is the world's largest supplier of automotive components, but it also does household appliances and power tools amongst other things.
After the drum belt broke on my last machine the first thing I noticed with this one was how quietly it runs and how stable it is, even on a spin cycle. The drum is very big, I'm not too good at judging capacity, but it easily hold two sets of bedding.
Another huge plus for me and my rather messy household (I have a very active toddler and a very inactive teenager) is the speed of the washes. A standard wash at 40 degrees takes only 48 minutes and the quick wash performs a great job at a very speedy 15 minutes. There is also a digital countdown timer which comes in very handy. If you have the time (I use it overnight) there is also an eco-program that uses less water, good for the environment and good for your pocket if you're on a water meter.
When it first arrived I was a little concerned about the brief instructions, but soon discovered that it is very easy to use and the controls pretty much self explanatory.
In the world of washing machines this one in a Ninja - Super quiet and super speedy.
