Product Reviews

"Quality as expected"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"This dishwasher is alot quiter than previous model (NEFF). The dishes come out very clean, the top shelf moves up and down to allow the optimal layout for the size of dishes that we have. The option for an eco wash takes a lot longer than the standard wash for some reason and it seems to leave a little too much water vapour on and around the door."

"Superb !"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"Excellent , quiet dishwasher with superb results. I had read some reports this dishwasher left the dishes wet after the cycle but if a decent rinse aid is used and the door left shut even after the cycle has finished, the machine continues to dry, so in short if you started the cycle before bed time, you would wake to very clean and dry dishes and cutlery. This is a welcomed upgrade to my previous troublesome Smeg dishwasher."

"i love you dishwasher"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: baaaaad instructions

"Cant believe how quiet and how clean this thing is!

sometimes forget its on its that quiet.

Seems to be enough room for what we use it for and haven't had any problems yet.

looked around for a long time at different reviews and bosch always seemed a good make plus it comes with 2 years warranty.

Instructions are bad as they've tried to make them universal pictures however its simply a plug, a pipe to your water and the waste pipe out. done :)

100% recommend."

"Fairly good"

Pros: Quiet, looks good

"Looks good, build seems pretty good, washes well on Intensive. Very long wash cycles though, moderate drying capability and occasionally the tablet dispenser fails to operate"

"Very disappointed"

Pros: Quiet, delayed start feature

Cons: poor quality, Expensive, does not dry - on any wash, extremely poor quality materials used, poor design on rack rails

"Had previous Bosch for more than ten years, excellent quality and reliable, cleaned really well and only problem was that it wouldn't dry things towards the end of its life.

However this one is genuinely just BAD!.

Brand new - it is worse than the old one. We have to dry everything that comes out of it with a dish towel, and re-wash at least two items each time. The bottom rack falls off the rails every time you try and load it, the quality of the materials used is awful - the top rack snapped within a week! Best feature is the delayed start - very useful, if it washed properly!

If I could get my old machine back I would swap it today.

Do not waste your money on this machine."

Bosch AvantiXX SMS40A08GB

The Bosch SMS40A08GB has clever adjustable racking that allows you to fit in all sorts of sizes and shapes of pans. Casserole dishes, roasting trays, and punch bowls-they’ll all easily fit in because the top basket can be adjusted to 3 different levels to make way for anything you’re washing. Don’t worry about keeping your machine in mint condition either, as Bosch offer a 10 year Anti-Rust warranty as standard with this model.

There are 4 programmes to choose from on the AvantiXX SMS40A08GB dishwasher. These include the Intensive at 70°C for heavily soiled dishes with burnt on grease, Economy at 50°C – a longer but more environmentally friendly wash using less water, Quick Wash 45°C for an everyday load and the Pre Rinse to get rid of any excess grime or hard to shift food.

The HydroSensor technology in the Bosch AvantiXX SMS40A08GB uses sensors in the dishwasher to measure the cleanliness in the pre-rinse water then decides whether or not it can be reused in the main cycle. This can save you up to 4 litres of water per cycle.

The Bosch also uses automatic detergent detection, which gets the most out of your detergent. It has clever load sensor technology that detects the load of your dishes and uses the best amount of water and energy. Great for saving a few pennies on electricity. And it has Aquamix which softens particularly hard water to protect delicate items; all this makes the wash as efficient as possible.

If you’re planning on staying out all night, why not take advantage of the delay start button? You can set the dishwasher to start between 1 and 24 hours in advance, so you can have the clean dishes ready for breakfast after a long night shift. And the SMS40A08GB won’t cost you much to run either as it has an impressive A + energy rating.

It won't wake anyone up either because this dishwasher runs at an almost silent 48 decibels, that’s 10 decibels quieter than a normal conversation – you’ll barely know it’s on.
