I like how this Bosch model simply gets the job done. Firstly it has 12 place settings, so there’s loads of room for all your crockery. And as well as washing your pots and pans, it also helps them dry too as it uses a residual drying method. This means it basically makes use of the heat from the wash, to also dry your dishes.
It’s A+ rated for energy, so you’ll only have to spend about £35 a year to run it. It also comes with a handy 9 hour delay timer. This lets you plan ahead with your day as you can set it to run while you’re out the house (doing far more interesting things than washing dishes…).
If you’ve just made a big Sunday dinner, then I’d advise you make use of the intensive setting. It runs a wash at 70 degrees to really cut through and remove tough stains or grease. You can also save a bit of time thanks to VarioSpeed. If you need to quickly dash out the house, then it lets you reduce the time it take by up to half.
The half load function will save you a bit on energy bills. If you have a smaller, lightly soiled load (like after breakfast) then you can just pop it in and run the half load function and it’ll use less water and electricity.
