After one week of use I can not imagine washing with another brand of dishwasher. The GE that this replaced sounded like a Jet Engine in comparison, The first cycle I had to open it to make sure it was running. My glasses come out sparkling and so clean. I can see why Consumer Reports rates BOSCH as the best for cleaning!

I was really excited to to get a new dishwasher, but this one is a complete disappointment. I've had this alleged "dishwasher" for 2 months and I am ready for a new one. Right off the bat with the FIRST wash there was black crud left on silverware and some bowls & plates that looked and smelled like mold. Even using the recommended detergent & rinse aid, the strongest wash option & sanitize option, and a service visit from a Bosch tech did not help. It can't even clean a cup that had tea in it, tea stains remain in the mug. Food is left stuck on silverware. Loading is awkward at best. Taller cups fall over onto their side when you pull the rack in or out because the tines aren't tall enough. My plates have a 1/4+ inch lip around them so they don't fit well into the very narrowly spaced tines meant for plates. You must have completely flat and thin plates in order for them to fit properly. It is beyond my comprehension how this could have been a top pick by the leading consumer magazine. I WISH I had my old Kenmore back. I cannot caution you enough, please don't waste your money on this.

Quit and effective

About Me Every day user
Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Black Built-In Dishwasher:
Very happy with both the dishwasher and the buying experience. I have wanted to replace my noisy Hotpoint for a long time, the reduction in sound is exactly what I expected. The ability to sit in the same room and have a conversation while the dishwasher runs hits my expectations on the mark.Only downside is the beeping when the load is finished - there must be a way to change that.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Bosch 24 " Ascenta Series Stainless Steel Undercounter Dishwasher:
I spent a fair amount of time researching dishwashers and was surprised by some of the negative reviews concerning smells and cleaning ability but decided to go ahead with the purchase based on Bosch's reputation. I'm glad I did. I've been using regularly for about three weeks and have had no problem with clean dishes or odors. I've always lightly rinsed my dishes before loading them into the dishwasher and given that this model does not have a food grinder I find this method works best for me. On several occasions I've had guests load dirty dishes that came out just as clean and sparkling as when I rinse. The racks are smallish but in my case they are only 1 inch smaller than my old dishwasher so this is what I'm used to. I have four people in my family and cook every night and I don't have a problem with space. But best of all is the fact that this machine is so quiet I cannot tell that it is running unless I put my ear to the door. Overall I'm extremely pleased with my purchase to the extent that I bought a second one for my kitchen in the basement.
Works Great! Super quiet!

Haven't had it long, but it clearly outclasses the other two dishwashers I presently own. The smaller Bosch is a model that while quiet and efficient, stinks due to design issues. The Kenmore is a little bigger, a little louder and not quite as good at cleaning.I like the loading, except silver is fussy as in most efficient units.It cleans like a champ.Controls on the top edge of the door are simple.It looks great in my new kitchen.
Service and delivery comments:
Very prompt delivery, good notification before delivery.Arrived unscathed.Excellent experience

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
This is the first dishwasher I've had that's so quiet you can talk at the kitchen table, or listen to TV or music without turning up the sound! Also the buttons are hidden when the machine is closed so my 4 year old grandson can't play with it! And it seems to have cleaned much better than my old machine. Decided on Bosch because of Consumer Reports high ratings. And ABT because their service, delivery and set up is so good.
Dishwasher lived up to exactly what I expected after reading the reviews. Cleans dirty dishes wonderfully...no pre wash required. Very quiet. Doesn't completely dry dishes, but to me that's not a big deal. Would rather dry a little after the fact than spend much more time washing beforehand if I had to choose.

Absolutely love it!

Love the delay start
By Roy Boy
Really quiet, large lower capacity but top rack is a little awkward with the rack over the small glasses.
Efficient, quiet and works great
This was a replacement for a 20 year old Bosch Dishwasher, which worked great for the time we had it. The new one is even better: Quieter, cleans better, and improved setting options (1/2 load, sanitize, etc.). Would highly recommend, a great product, a great price from ABT, and even sleeker looking than the previous dishwasher!
