German brand dishwashers, such as Bosh, Miele and Gaggenau, are available from high-end appliance dealers and stores, including AJ Madison, which sells all three German brands. To find local dealers, visit the companies' websites, and search by ZIP code.
Bosch and Miele dishwashers rank among the best dishwashers on the market, according to Good Housekeeping. Bosch offers the largest selection of dishwashers in the widest range of prices. As of 2015, a basic Bosch dishwasher retails for $549, and a top-of-the-line model is $2,000. Bosch dishwashers are ENERGY STAR certified and eligible for rebates. Bosch also claims to offer the quietest dishwashers in the world, with sound ratings of 38 to 50 decibels.
Miele also claims to offer the quietest dishwashers, with sound ratings of 38 to 47 decibels. Miele provides a 90-day money-back guarantee, if the customer does not consider the dishwasher to be the quietest and most effective cleaner ever owned. On the AJ Madison website, Miele dishwashers are priced from $900 for an entry-level model to $4,000 for a professional one.
Gaggenau offers only a few built-in dishwasher models. Gaggenau dishwashers are special orders, and pricing is not available online, although suggested pricing is in the range of $2,000 to $4,000. Like the other brands, Gaggenau models are energy efficient and quiet.
