Most of the time when I compare models in different articles, there is no clear “best” option. However, there are details important in kitchens to consider. If you are paneling a dishwasher (or any other appliance), you do not want it aesthetically protruding past the cabinets. It ruins the look of the kitchen to see the side. You would be better off buying it in stainless steel.

When you consider the many paneled dishwashers, this one Bosch is by far the best option. In the following video, I will tell you why.

Thanks for reporting a problem. We'll attach technical data about this session to help us figure out the issue. Which of these best describes the problem?

Any other details or context?



This particular Bosch 800 series dishwasher is one of the best options if you want to place a panel on your dishwasher. Let's discover why.

First, we always recommend a European style dishwasher if you want panels. Brands like Bosch, Miele, and Asko are less deep and do not protrude from the cabinets, so you can’t tell the difference between the dishwasher and the cabinet itself.

Of the three brands, Bosch tends to be more affordable than Miele or Asko with similar features.

In terms of cycles, you have all the most popular like heavy, normal, delicate, and rinse only, as well as a sanitize option for removing baked on stains with hotter water.

There are a couple of new cycles like Eco which decreases time and temperature for lightly soiled silverware and a 30 minute Express wash for glasses.

The inside has great loading capability with the third rack for silverware. This leaves room inside the dishwasher for other items.

The top rack adjusts a number of different ways to maximize space in both racks.

At 44 decibels, this dishwasher is extremely quiet, so quiet that it has a red infolight shining on the floor to remind you that it is on.

Bosch, along with Miele, is the most reliable brands you can buy.

Why You Should Consider This Machine

The first reason you should buy a European machine is because it does not protrude from the cabinet.

When you step up in Bosch, however, you are essentially buying a 2 decibel quieter dishwasher for $300 more. You probably won’t even notice the difference. Most paneled dishwashers from Asko and Miele are at least $200-$300 more, with fewer features.

This dishwasher, on the other hand, has the right combination of features and quietness for under $900. It may seem expensive, but it’s very competitive for a dishwasher that accepts panels.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
