Miele vs Bosch 18 Inch Dishwashers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

18 inch dishwashers are almost exclusively an urban phenomenon of limited space and galley kitchens. There are many brands who specialize in the size, but the two best are Miele and Bosch. This is pretty logical as they both manufacture the best 24 inch regular dishwashers.

Miele

Miele has garnered a reputation for its strict quality control practices and in-house manufacturing. 96.8% of all the parts in a Miele dishwasher are produced internally, not sourced. The price tends to be higher in a Miele, but their machines are serviced the least in the industry.

Bosch

Bosch has long had the reputation of producing high quality dishwashers at affordable prices. They really focus on the quiet aspect of a dishwasher. Currently, they operate the largest dishwasher manufacturing facility in the world in the US.

Both brands dishwashers have many similarities. Miele and Bosch both offer a stainless front or an unfinished panel ready version. Both will feature stainless steel interiors (odor and stain resistant). The upper rack is adjustable to accommodate taller items both in the upper and lower racks. Both Miele and Bosch models are ADA compliant and are quiet and efficient.

Miele does offer more cycles such as quick wash, china and crystal cycle (less time/less temperature) and their third rack on the top for silverware. The third rack places the silverware in individual holders which allows for more room in the dishwasher itself.

The drying cycle is different as well as Miele adjusts the cycle for temperature and humidity for cycle duration.

Bosch vs Miele comes down to the choice of value of Bosch versus features and incredible dependability of Miele. Either way, it's a pretty good choice.
