Bosch is considered one of the best dishwashers available as of 2014 because it cleans dishes effectively, prevents spots, dries the dishes well, is energy efficient and features large racks. As of 2015, Good Housekeeping gives it an A- rating.
One of good qualities about a Bosch dishwasher is its energy efficiency and affordability to run. It costs only $24 a year to run the dishwasher. Another important feature is the front panel's ability to resist fingerprints. However, there are a few downsides to this dishwasher, such as an unintuitive control panel, a small utensil basket and a shallow rinse-aid dispenser. Also, the detergent dispenser can be tricky to latch.
Although Bosch dishwashers are top-notch, Good Housekeeping ranks a few brands as slightly better, such as KitchenAid, Asko, GE and Kenmore. For instance, the KitchenAid Superba model received an A rating and top honors for ease of use. It is considered superior for its powerful cleaning ability, extra space for utensils, and simple control panel. It even has special jets for removing the stuck-on material from cookware. The Asko dishwasher received an A rating for being the best performer. It is also quiet, energy efficient, easy to load and boasts a simple control panel.
