"A little disappointed"

Pros: Value for money, Good build quality

Cons: Noisy, badly laid out baskets, poor programs

"We bought this dishwasher to replace a Miele which had needed engineer attention twice in three months. The build quality of this machine is excellent (after all it IS a Bosch) but that's about the only positive (and of course it is a BIG positive). Unfortunately there are a number of significant negatives. Firstly, the programs, either Intensive (close on three hours), Eco (again close on three hours), Quick (twenty five minutes) and Prerinse (not really a wash at all). Eco and intensive are about an hour longer than the equivalent on the Miele but the Quick sometimes doesn't even dissolve the dishwasher tablet. It desperately needs something in-between.

The basket layout is atrocious meaning we can fit about 30% less in this as we could in the Miele.

The machine is noisy, so much so that even with it in the next room with no adjoining door we find ourselves having to turn up the TV.

All in all a disappointment"

"much more plasticy"

Pros: Quiet, looks good

"Effective as you would expect from this maker but all filters now plastic not metal. Flimsier cutlery basket. Harder to load efficiently. Previous 2 have lasted 10 years, don't think this 1 will but hope to be surprised! Wish either of my 2 previous Bosch dishwashers still worked!"

"Bosch"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use

Cons: Noisy

"This is our second bosch dishwasher in 3 years, hope it will last longer than the previous one! This one seems less complex than the previous interns of repair, if needed. It came out cheaper to buy a new one tha paying a 'Bosch man'. The only annoying thing on this one is that every time you want to switch it on it starts on 'Eco' programme which is more than 3 hours! Not a big deal, which would put me off purchasing it again. Not sure what's 'Eco' about it? Overall it's good, the price is also reasonable, bit noisy but it's ok. Just hoping it will last much longer!"

"Great machine.."

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, 2 year warranty, economical

Cons: none

"This is our first dishwasher ever, so cannot compare with any other makes, but it sure beats hand washing. :-))

We chose this machine for several reasons.

1.Brand.. Bosch has a good reputation, we wanted one that would last.

2.As we are on economy 7 tariff a Delay timer was a 'must have'

3.Good Reviews.

4.Price.. not cheap but not a lot more than a budget brand,

5. Warranty,.. standard 2 year Bosch.

It does an excellent job on the Eco wash.. glasses and plates come out sparkling and 'squeaky' clean.... despite living in a very hard water area

On intensive program it cleans burned on food from oven dishes with ease,

It is quiet, in fact so quiet we weren't sure if it was working when we tried it for the first time.

The control panel is intuitive and easy to use without needing to refer to an instruction book continually.

I love it .. so does my wife.."

"Good buy"

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

"Very pleased with performance, really gets everything clean and shining. Range of programmes is good. Don't think the stacking layout is as good as previous dishwashers but guess I'll get used to it. All in all very happy with performance and results."

Bosch SMS40C12GB

Saving money and time on your dishwasher takes absolutely no effort with the Bosch SMS40C12GB. Thanks to the automatic Half Load, this model adjusts the amount of water and electricity you use to match the amount of dishes you’re washing. It’s an excellent way to save money and compared to standard A rated models, you’ll save an additional 10% on your wash costs thanks to the A+ efficiency rating.

In fact, over the course of a year you’ll spend just £34.80 – you’d easily spend double that on washing up liquid and water if you washed up by hand. It’s even more impressive when you consider you’ll get a full 12 place settings inside this model at once. That works out to 12 sets of plates, bowls, glasses and cutlery, so it’s an excellent size for a large household or for those who like to entertain.

If you’re always in a hurry this extremely helpful Bosch will get a full load washed in just 29 minutes. Lightening quick it’s best kept for very lightly soiled loads, though if you’ve cooked a full Sunday roast and there’s lots of burnt bits on your roasting tin, use the Intensive cycle. The 70°C water will strip away any grease or bits of food, saving you the trouble of scrubbing it by hand.

You’re also getting an Eco Wash, which saves you even more on your wash costs. By using short burst of energy over a long period of time, you get to save around 20% on you normal wash costs, and still get perfectly clean dishes. It takes a little longer than the standard cycle, but it’s well worth the savings.
