Nowadays, it could be difficult to buy a good dishwasher with decent features and quietness.
You can consider the inexpensive brands like Frigidaire, Whirlpool, Maytag, and GE, which have great features, but most of them have plastic tubs and are noisier.
There are also the premium dishwashers like Bosch, KitchenAid, and Miele. Each of them has robust quietness factors and features. In years passed, premium dishwashers would cost about $1000.
Despite that, Bosch does have one model with pretty much every feature. It is the Stainless Steel Bosch 300 Series, and depending on the promotions it can be as low as $589 after rebates.
In the video below, we will show you why to consider this Bosch dishwasher as well as compare it to other dishwashers.
The SHS63VL5UC has main wash features like pots and pans, auto, normal as well as delicate wash. More significantly, it has a quiet 44-decibel rating. It is also the best reasonably priced dishwasher at anywhere between $589-719 depending on the promotions.
If you are looking for a quiet and reliable dishwasher at a reasonable price, you may want to look at this Bosch 300 Series dishwasher.
First Bosch has a reputation for quietness, but also for reliability. At 7.5% service calls within the first year, it is the second most reliable behind Miele.
This particular Bosch is about $600-$679 and is in the middle of their line, but offers many of their best features like an all stainless tub and a 9 position upper rack. By adjusting the rack you can accommodate larger pans and casserole dishes.
You have all their main cycles like pots and pans for baked on dishes, a normal wash, and a delicate wash. It has an auto wash, which is a soil sensor and automatically adjusts for time and temperature.
Likewise, you can wash almost anything in this dishwasher. It is also almost noiseless with a 44 dBA rating, which is amongst the quietest you can buy.
For comparison, this dishwasher is better than their lower priced Ascenta series, because it has the all stainless tank and adjustable rack. It is much quieter at 44 dBs versus 50 for the Ascenta. The price difference being about $75 -$150 more.
The more expensive Bosch 800 Series adds a 3rd rack and a few cycles at the same level of quietness for approximately $200 more. The 3rd rack gives you more flexibility in the dishwasher, but that is about all.
I think Miele is better with a better dry cycle as well as being slightly more reliable, but that is over $300 more.
As I said before if you want a quiet, reliable dishwasher with good features then consider this Bosch dishwasher.
