Bosch 500 Series Dishwasher
There are certain appliances that I end up using every day without fail. I may not use the stove, microwave, washer, or dryer every day. But I definitely use my dishwasher.
When we moved into our house there was a new stainless steel dishwasher in it. And while it's been great so far, I know that before too long we're going to have to replace it. I don't want to be rushed and pressured at the last minute, so I'm already looking at dishwasher brands. One of the brands that keep popping up for reliability, features, and quietness is the Bosch 500 Series Dishwasher.
The Bosch 500 Series dishwasher gives you sparkling clean dishes with their special wash and dry cycles. Precision Wash uses smart sensors that are constantly scanning and cleaning dishes throughout the cycle. And the new Auto-Air features automatically releases the door to let moisture escape and fresh air inside.
No matter how many dishes you have to wash, this dishwasher has you covered. It has room for up to 16 place setting and gives you flexibility with an adjustable 3rd rack. There are 3 different height levels and up to 9 possible rack positions to customize every load.
You can definitely see why the Bosch 500 is at the top of my list for a new dishwasher. But here are some popular questions about dishwashers I found, that will help you when you need a new dishwasher!
How long do dishwashers last?
Dishwashers have a lifespan of between 7 and 12 years. Brand, quality, maintenance, and use frequency can affect how long your dishwasher lasts.
How wide is a dishwasher and are all dishwashers the same size?
The Bosch 500 dishwasher is 24 inches wide. 24” wide by 35” tall by 24” deep is the standard size of most dishwashers. Always make sure to measure the opening in case flooring changes affects the fit for your new dishwasher.
How much water does a dishwasher use?
Energy-STAR rated dishwashers (like the entire Bosch line) average about 4 gallons of water per cycle.
How hot does a dishwasher get?
Dishwashers are normally between 149-160 degrees. If you use the Sanitize option on the Bosch 500, the water will be around 180 degrees. The Sanitize option reduces 99.9% of bacteria with a hot-wash rinse for sparkling clean and sanitized dishes.
The Bosch 500 also has 5 wash cycles including 5-level wash with 5 options like extra dry, and a concealed heating element.
How long does a dishwasher run?
Normal cycles of most newer dishwashers run for 2-4 hours.
How loud is a Bosch dishwasher?
Bosch makes some of the quietest dishwashers at Best Buy. At just 44 dBA it uses 18 different sound-reducing technologies like multiple layers of insulation and a sound-absorbing base.
