Bosch's extensive 500 Series has it all: convenient third racks, splittable cutlery baskets, various styles and colors, and available Speed Perfect setting. Oh, and clean dishes. That too. Bosch dishwashers are also known for their noise ratings, and this series tops out at just 44 dBA—about the same as a library. At under $900 for most models it's simply one of the best deals in dishwashing today.

The new Bosch 300 Series SHXM63WS5N dishwasher is all new for 2017, but it continues to offer the same sleek look, quiet operation, and incredible cleaning prowess that Bosch is known for. On top of that, it also gets a newly redesigned 3rd rack, foldable tines, an adjustable upper rack, and water softener system... Phew! This dishwasher is worth every cent, even compared to fancier (and more expensive) Bosch models.

The price may be intimidating, but our tests show the Benchmark Series is worth every cent. In addition to a surprisingly intuitive LCD control panel, illuminated interior, flexible racks, third rack, and flush fit, our lab tests showed near-perfect performance that got dishes clean and dry. We were also impressed by its quiet operation—rated at just 40 dBA. If you demand the best, you should demand a Bosch Benchmark.
Bosch is known for quiet dishwashers, and the Ascenta Series is no exception. At just 46 dBA these models are exceptionally quiet for their price range. In fact the InfoLight, a red light that beams onto the floor, will be the only way you can tell they're running. The simple controls, "scoop" handle, and cost-cutting mix of plastic and stainless steel are welcome adjustments to Bosch's well-loved dishwasher platform.

With an MSRP of $799, we’ve spotted the Bosch 300 Series in the wild for as low as $720, less than half the price of the flagship SHE8PT55UC. Of course, you won’t find a fancy LCD screen or interior lights on this machine. What you will find is a simple, trimmed-down selection of cycles and wash options, low water and electricity consumption, and surprisingly quick wash cycles.
