Bosch Dishwasher Review

Bosch SHE43F16UC Dishwasher
Bought at Lowe's $699 and used a 10% off movers coupon
It does qualify for the Energy Star Rebate.  We didn't qualify because we didn't have a clunker to trade in.  I picked it up from the store and my husband hooked it up so we didn't have to get the "permit" and no delivery charge.

My review:  It works great.  Everything I hoped!!  Cleans great!!  I haven't found anything that came out dirty.  It doesn't have a drying heat element on the bottom.  I have to wait about an hour for all the dishes to dry.  If I open the door when it's done, there is a lot of steam.  However it doesn't release steam into the house during the run time or after unless I open the door.  The steam was something I was really worried about, we don't need any more moisture in the house.  I'm using Jet Dry and Electra Sol tabs for detergent.  Glad and Ziploc containers do come out wet.  The rim edges have a lot to do with that.  The rims hold the water and doesn't dry.  No spots on any of the dishes or flat wear so far.  The plastic containers I put under the glass holder arm so they don't fly around the dishwasher.  Without the heating element on the bottom I don't have to worry about the plastics melting.  I do scrape all the dishes before loading, however there has been dried on BBQ and tomato sauce and all items came out clean.  I'm really happy with it.  Being that I haven't had a dishwasher before I have nothing to compare it to.  This dishwasher has done so far everything I wanted.  It's so strange to load it and I'm done!!  I stand by the sink and think I can't believe I'm done.  It doesn't seem right.  I'm sure I will quickly get over that!!

Update April 2010.  Still loving it.  No real problems.  The dishwasher has broke 2 glasses, which I'm sure is my fault with the placement in the machine.  I have had a few things come out dirty, however again it was my fault... not having the item upside down correctly or general placement...  Placement is a huge factor in the dishwasher doing the job.  The detergent is very hard on prints.  I had a coffee cup with a Mustang logo painted on it, well it's just about completely bleached out.  Also some of my drinking glasses had cows painted on them...  well not any more... gone!!!!   About 3 weeks ago everything was coming out cloudy.  I was scared that something horrible was going on...  well I did a bit of research and realized that this was caused by hubby not keeping up with the salt in the softener.  Well that was quickly fixed however whatever went through the dishwasher and the dishwasher it's self still had a cloudy film and running it normally was not taking it off.  So I did some more research..  I filled a glass measuring cup with vinegar and ran the dishwasher empty using the shortest cycle... Bingo the dishwasher cloudiness was gone and once everything that was cloudy went through after that was sparkling too!!  So I learned a few things in the 3-4 months we have used it.  I love it.

Hey, my name is Tony and i have the option to get this DW for about $350. Is it worth it? Also, do you feel it gets the dishes clean consistently. I have also read that it is hard to load. Thanks a bunch!

Yes I love my dishwasher. I had no problems at all. Most of the time I use the quick wash cycle (28 minutes) and everything comes out clean. The only time anything comes out dirty is because it wasn't loaded well (yup the kids did it, LOL)

So, if you want to give them a gift that they will appreciate for years to come,
a slow cooker is an awesome option. According to these
sites, the batteries and other accessories
you'll need can be purchased inexpensively on auction sites. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.

George Forman used to have a monopoly in the genre of former athletes marketing indoor counter top grills.
I prayed for a real food processor that would slice, dice,
chop, blend food with ease, and did not have
to be churned manually. For scrambled eggs, add the eggs to the pie iron and close,
holding over the campfire until eggs are done.

Crocs are also not a good option for a zombie apocalypse.

They have had them on since, and haven't once tried to remove them. So you won't have to stumble around
in the middle of the night to turn up or down the heater.
Christmas stockings make for a fire hazard if they are too close to the flames or not secured well enough and they actually fall into
the fire.
