Our kitchen won't fit a 24" dishwasher but this one holds so much that it's softened the disappointment of not having a larger capacity dishwasher. The adjustable tines and adjustable top basket allow you to load just about any combination of dishes. We're also really impressed that it cleans our plastic container lids without blowing them all over the top basket yet cleans with enough power to get even baked on food off. It's so quiet that, at first, we weren't sure if it was running or not until we saw the timer ticking down the minutes. We used to have to wait to run the dishwasher until the baby was up but now the baby can sleep within feet of the dishwasher with no problem.

We have an in home water softener/filtration system so we don't use the build in water softener at all. We were worried at first about having one in the dishwasher since we knew we didn't need it but you can bypass it very easily if you don't need it.

Certainly not least of all, the dishes come out clean. We use a rinse aid as the manufacturer recommends and the dishes come out clean and dry.

Love the stainless steel interior and nylon racks. The old dishwasher racks started to rust after so many years but that won't be the case with this one.

Comments about Bosch 18" Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:

I have a small kitchen so I have to have an 18-inch dishwasher. This one is great at getting the dishes clean and it is so quiet that I almost have to put my ear up against it to hear it running. However, it has no heated drying feature--it relies upon steam and air to dry the dishes. (That's probably to help it get a good energy efficiency rating.) That will be annoying when I have a large dinner party and want to run several loads in succession. I also don't like the arrangement of the racks. It's great for washing a lot of plates but not so good for washing a lot of bowls. The user manual recommends using the sanitize feature, so I have been, but I haven't gotten an electric bill yet, so I don't know if that uses a lot of juice.

Service and delivery comments:

Everything about the delivery and installation was great. That's a big part of why I buy appliances at Abt.

          Pros: It really does hold a lot; our two-person household does not need to run it every day. It's almost silent. It gets all dishes really clean. Solid workmanship, clever engineering. Movable upper shelf is very useful.

          So far, we've experienced no cons.

                  This dishwasher is top of the line. It feels so much more heavy duty than my last dishwasher (whirlpool). I can barely hear it running its so quiet! I love that I can move the silverware basket around to fit different size items in the dishwasher. I never before considered Bosch but am so glad I did.

                    Replaced a portable dishwasher. Great improvement. Could do a better job drying. Dries better if you open the door at the end of the cycle. Seems to clean better if you use the salt for water softening, but dishwasher salt seems to be ridiculously expensive.
