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.

Comments about Bosch 24" Stainless Undercounter Dishwasher:
I've been using it for a week. The lower rack has nothing to keep it "on track" Small problem I will learn to work around. Seems to have a shadow imprint of the Bosch logo and stars on the front-perhaps from the wrapping. Not sure how to get it off!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta White Built-In Dishwasher:
This arrived with minimal packing (nice) and in great shape. It included the drain hose, but I re-used the supply line from my old dishwasher. It was a snap to install, Here's a tip - read the manual online before it arrives, so that you can have all the parts you need ready to go. Once it was installed, I ran a rinse wash to clean the inside, and then ran a load. It was super quiet! Sometimes, I opened it up to see if it was working! I'm not a super-fan of the hidden controls - sometimes it's nice to be able to look at it to see if it's done yet - but I do like the on/off feature - probably saves on electricity.

This cleans so much better than our previous dishwasher. It's incredibly quiet, too. One disadvantage: it's hard to tell where it is in the wash cycle, because it does not have a dial like our old dishwasher. But this is a minor gripe.
Very quiet. A little small inside

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Black Built-In Dishwasher:
The dishwasher runs almost every day in our household of 5. It's ridiculously quiet. A cycle takes almost 2 hours to run, so you have to plan ahead. The interior is also a little smaller than expected; our cereal bowls don't quite fit well. If you wash mostly plates and glasses, you'll do fine with this.

Delivered on time and in perfect shape. Plumber installed next day, working great.
Elegant + excellent dishwasher
By Urban family cook
from Chicago, IL
I have this installed in small kitchen for a family of four. It is a beautiful addition to the room - I love the hidden controls. It cleans extremely well, and is very quiet. My only complaints are that I haven't figured out the best way to load it efficiently, and I often pull the lower rack off of its tracks by accident.

Great dishwasher and a great price
from Surprise, AZ
Before purchasing this dishwasher, we had to use our GE unit everyday. Due to the way this unit is laid out, we only need to wash dishes every third day. As with most Bosch products, it is amazingly quiet.The dishes come out as clean as one can expect.It is important to note that although the dishwasher came as promised, it did not include, nor was the installation kit suggested by Abt. As a result, installation was delayed a day until I was able to go to the hardware store to pick up the required $40 kit. (I suspect I overpaid for the kit.) It would have been great if the Abt sales representative would have advised me of this requirement at the time of purchase. That would have saved me a day in installation and likely a few bucks.
Delivery arrived a day earlier than we expected. Additionally, I was concerned that the dishwasher would be "dropped shipped" to our door step. The delivery persons dropped the dishwasher in our 1st floor kitchen, ready for the plumber to install.
Does a really good job on getting the dishes clean. This is an extremely quiet dishwasher. We are very satisfied with the product and would buy it again. The delivery service was prompt and the installers very efficient and professional
