The 13-place setting capacity of dishes the Bosch dishwasher offers will be ideal for families. Like most dishwashers, this free-standing model has a modern inverter motor, which stands out, especially for its long life and low consumption. Although the energy class C may seem like something other than anyone’s success, at the time of writing the review, it was the best class in our comparison, making this dishwasher one of the most energy-efficient models.
The consumption of the dishwasher can be described as relatively low; the total costs for one washing cycle are below £0.3. The effectiveness of washing and drying is comparable for today’s dishwashers across price categories, and this model does not deviate in any way.
The range of Bosch dishwasher programs has its strengths and weaknesses. The choice of 6 programs and four washing temperatures should be sufficient for most users, although models with a better offer exist. The dishwasher has a fast, Eco or intensive program, i.e. the three most used variants. These are also complemented by a program for cleaning the dishwasher and an automatic program that, thanks to special sensors, evaluates the amount and degree of soiling of the dishes and selects the appropriate settings.
However, there is no special program for gentle glass washing, which you can find in some dishwashers.

Overall, we didn’t find major flaws with this model, only minor things like the absence of sound signalling. In some respects, the dishwasher adheres to traditional values, for example, noise or the efficiency of washing and drying, but all dishwashers on the market are comparable.
If you are not fond of Smart functions and prefer a more powerful dishwasher, we recommend that you look at the AEG FFE63806PW review.
