We love all the Bosch 800 Series dishwashers. No matter which one you pick, our tests show you'll get excellent cleaning performance, good drying, sleek looks, and a highly desirable set of features. With easy-gliding racks and an optional "MyWay" third rack that fits soup bowls, you can choose the look you like best and configure the racks to make room for your dishes and pans. Best of all, they're as quiet as 39 db!
Bosch's 500 Series dishwashers are popular for their quiet performance—as low as 44 dBa— but our lab tests show they're great at cleaning, too. Available with two handle options in stainless, black, or white, their hidden controls will fit any kitchen design. Every one features a third rack, extra drying feature, leak prevention, a quick wash cycle, and smooth-gliding racks. User reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

From design to performance, this all-new dishwasher is all about fluidity and grace. Perhaps most importantly, it's equipped with KitchenAid’s Clean Water Wash technology, which continually removes food particles from wash water. That means the KDTM354DSS doesn’t spray debris back onto clean dishes. Should you buy one of your own? We think so. This is one of the best-performing dishwashers in its price range.

The Bosch 300 Series 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, better drying, and an optional water softener... Phew! This dishwasher is worth every cent, and even offers more design choices than the pricier 500 Series.

Bosch's flagship is the Benchmark series. While the Benchmark dishwashers may cost a lot more than the 800 Series, they do offer some niceties for more discerning customers. In addition to a 38 dBA rating—the quietest dishwasher you can buy—Benchmark offers panel-ready designs, LED touchscreens, telescoping racks, a deep third rack, and interior lighting. Most models are made in Bosch's factory in Dillingen, Germany.
