"why I haven't bought it 10 years ago"

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

Cons: Expensive

"Our first dishwasher ever and questioning myself why I haven't bought it 10 years ago. I have very clean cups, pans, plates and chopping board, no residue, no food remainings. I tried 3 programmes but the most suitable is eco one as it use only 6 liters of water and when you set up the machine to start 4am I am not bothered that it takes 3 hrs. Eco half load 30% less water and energy. Quick wash - 10 litres of water and of course a bit more energy to clean dishes quickly so not interested unless I have to. It is quite pricey but worth it -I think Ihave spent money well."

"Excellent dishwasher"

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

Cons: none

"Bought due to moving home and having to leave behind our very good reliable Bosch dishwasher behind.

I must confess to being unsure if I needed such an advanced machine but both my wife and I agreed the most important white goods purchase was the dishwasher!

We selected this model due to it being a Which? best buy. I was particularly impressed by the very small amount of water it uses and of course the very high scores it achieved in doing what it's meant to do.

Two weeks in, initially you can be daunted by the options available, but in reality it's very simple to operate - select programme and press the start button!

It's very quiet and been very effective - the adjustable top drawer really helps to load the machine to it's maximum.

With regards to the 3 hour 5 min timing of the eco program. Yes it's a long time - but if like us you put the machine once a day in the evening and then empty it in the morning, it makes no difference. In return it's the cheapest option and uses the least amount of water. (Plus there's a quick wash option, yet to be tried, that will only take 35 mins on the rare occasions - Christmas day etc - when you need a quick turnaround.

So in conclusion; still early days but very pleased, yes it's expensive but I fully expect that it will earn it's keep over the years."

"Almost perfect"

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

Cons: quick wash not so quick

"Happy with 98% of all of the product features and performance. The only annoying thing is whilst the quick wash is only 20 mins. You can't load anything initially and have to run it for 20 mins to heat up / set itself and then it tells you to load. Then you load it and run it. Then each subsequent cycle you can load straight away. Therefore it's not so great for a single quick wash but if you have a number of washes to complete when doing dinner parties, Christmas etc."

"Instructions need to be clearer"

Pros: Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, childproof door and controls

Cons: poor instruction booklet

"Lovely dishwasher with a full assortment of programmes. Sturdy construction. Cleans really well - even burnt on oven dishes.Love the fact that it has a childproof door lock and tamper proof controls. Difficult to install so should have purchased installation at the time as we had to wait for a plumber. The instruction booklet is very hard to follow. Also be aware that there are empty pages at the end of the booklet then more information on the last page which, annoyingly, we didn't find straight away!"

"First ever dishwasher!"

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

Cons: none

"This is the first dishwasher I have ever owned so don't have any previous models to compare it too. I did a lot of research online as well as asking friends and family and Bosch always came tops.

I have now had this model for over three months and I love it!

We are a family of five and this dish washer fits a whole days worth of dirty dishes, cups, glasses, a large wok if I am clever and a medium sized pot. The bottom tray fits our pressure cooker pot and wok, dinner plates cutlery and I manage to get the glass blender jug in! The top tray takes all our bowls, smaller plates and glasses. I have tall glasses as well as shorter ones which the kids use and find the smaller ones fit very nicely in the top with the tall ones next to them. I also fit in sandwich size lunch box containers, and smaller cake containers and the kids water bottles.

The dish washer is as quiet as I expected it to be. I only use it over night with the kitchen door shut and even if used during the day I have found it quiet.

I have used the 'verio speed' option for a quick wash which takes 1 hour 15 minutes and everything comes out as clean as when using the' eco' mode which I use over night and takes 3 hours and 5 mins. There are other options but i have not used then as of yet."

Demonstrating extraordinary eco-washing capability, the Bosch Exxcel SMS65E38GB operates at 100% performance, even with 6 litres’ water consumption – less water per cycle than the capacity of a standard kitchen sink. It’s quiet, too, emitting just 44dB, which is roughly the same decibel level as birdsong.

Its 6 programmes¬ – Intensive 70 °C, Auto 45-65 °C, Economy 50 °C, Delicate 40 °C, TurboSpeed 60 °C and Pre Rinse – and 4 special options including Intensive Zone, Speed Perfect, Half Load and Extra Dry offer flexibility for whatever you need to clean. For quick washing up between courses or while you’re prepping your meal, the TurboSpeed setting brings brilliant results in only 20 minutes by using pre-heated water. Deciding on a programme couldn’t be easier than simply opting for the Auto setting, which senses the load and adjusts temperature accordingly.

With space for up to 13 place settings, the appliance features an advanced basket system with a 3-stage height-adjustable top basket to help load large tableware with ease. Organisation is simple thanks to the knife rack, 6 foldable plate racks and 2 foldable cup racks on top. On the bottom, you can arrange glasses on their own rack and utilise 4 foldable plate racks and 2 foldable cup racks. A glass protection system reduces scratches to delicate stemware.

Other features include a heat exchanger for hygienic, efficient drying and a leak protection system, so you can confidently leave your dishwasher to run even when you’re not at home.
