Best Dishwasher? Give My Love to the Bosch SHE68E15UC
I have a customer who is putting together a sick, sick kitchen in Scarsdale NY and suffice to say the appliances that are going in there are world beaters. He needs 2 dishwashers and he point-blank asked me, “I want the best dishwasher out there”.
Hmmm…what a heavy question. Let me think, think , think here….
If money is not an option, I’m picking a higher-end Bosch, and in particular the SHE68E15UC dishwasher. This should sell for anywhere from $1549-$1799.
Bosch has taken their share of lumps over the last few years. One of the criticisms that you will hear aimed at them is that their dishwashers are nowhere near the level of the Bosch’s that were on the market 10 years ago. You’ll hear people say that the new ones are too “plastic-y” and that they just feel cheaper.
I’m not going to deny that if you are looking at an Ascenta series model (go find me a “rich” feeling $599 dishwasher). But you CANNOT rag on the 800 Plus Series dishwashers. No way. This is the line where Bosch plays for keeps.
I don’t care which high-end dishwasher manufacturer, domestic or European, that you roll out.
Drawers. Tall tubs. Smart dispense. Third and Fourth racks. Bring it. The Bosch bests all.
Look at the numbers:
6 wash cycles and 5 options..ok who cares about this, no one buys a dw based on wash cycles.
Quiet. How quiet? 40 decibels quiet. I own the SHX45L15UC which is in the high 40’s and it’s a very quiet dw with the only sound you’ll hear being the swishing of water. That means that the
SHE68E15UC is probably so quiet that you won’t even know that it’s working.
It’s also the most energy efficient dishwasher in the US – using 180kw per year.
For you 3rd rack buffs, Bosch has included one. Warning , you need to snap your silverware in.
