Bosch SMS40T42UK Freestanding Standard Dishwasher - White

Featured in our Top 5 Dishwashers. Bosch’s SMS40T42UK is great for a larger household and holds an impressive 12 place settings. The 29 minute Quick Wash will clean lighter loads – great when you’ve just finished breakfast. You’ll also save money with Bosch’s Active Water technology. It uses an improved pump that heats water up faster – so less energy is used. And the SMS40T42UK won’t cost you a fortune to run either at 35p per wash.

"Very pleased yet again....."

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

"I had my old Bosch dishwasher for over ten years using it for our family of five everyday during that time, sadlly it was uneconomical to repair when the time came. But I now have a shiny new one

Which is even quieter and very simple to use and

It dries everything very well without leaving any marks and I would give this appliance 10/10 : )"

"Simple and effective"

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

"Even though it's the base model, it still looks the part. A simple clean layout with 4 program selectors. I honestly can't think of why you need any more programs than this? Build quality is excellent, rack layout excellent, quality of wash excellent. Instead of going on and on, this machine is just brilliant at what it does. Also a 2 year guarantee as well."

Bosch SMS40T42UK

Bosch’s latest money-saving technology comes in the form of Active Water. An improved pumping system that heats up water faster to reduce energy bills. It also has an overall A + energy rating – which is 10% more efficient than standard models. Great for saving a few pounds.

With 12 place settings, there’s plenty of room for a larger household. There’s 3 different temperatures for different crockery. The higher temperature is ideal for sticky pots and pans, while the lowest is best for lightly soiled dishes like toast or soup.

It’s really quiet at just 50dB – less than a normal conversation – so you won’t have to ramp up the TV volume if you have open plan living. And, for peace of mind, it comes with Anti Flood. The SMS40T42UK will detect any leaks should they occur and automatically cut off the water supply.

For small and lightly soiled loads after breakfast, the Quick Wash is really handy. It’ll clean your dishes in just 29 minutes. You get plenty of room to play with too. The SMS40T42UK has a top adjustable basket and foldable racking - ideal if you want to make space for a bulky casserole dish.
