This popular Bosch integrated dishwasher is standard sized, holds 12 place settings and is ideal for a family of four. It comes with a 2 year warranty and a 10 year anti-rust guarantee. This dishwasher uses 1.02 kWh of energy and 12 litres of water per cycle. It costs approximately £43.50 a year to run (based on 15p per unit of electricity) which seems pretty reasonable for avoiding a year of ‘Fairy-Soft’ hands. It runs quietly at 46 dB and has an A+ energy efficiency rating. It has an A rating for washing and drying efficiency. The dimensions are 81.5 x 59.8 x 55.0 cm.
The Classixx SMV53A00GB features 5 programmes and 4 temperature settings. The temperature can be set high to sterilise such things as baby’s bottles, toddlers’ dishes or medicine spoons. Alternatively the temperature can be set low for glass (to avoid that cloudy look) or china care. The dishwasher’s programmes include an intensive wash, an ECO wash, a zonal /half load wash, pre-wash and quick wash.
This model features adjustable racking and adjustable height on the top basket (the basket raises with a lever click system). The racking folds down for those bulkier dishes and pans and the wine glass rack raises for longer stemmed glasses. The dishwasher also features a child lock – great to keep those inquisitive little people from harming themselves or your shiny new appliance. It also has a 24 hour delay timer so that you can wash while you’re out or take advantage of cheap electricity while you sleep.
This Bosch features an environmentally friendly ‘hydro sensor‘ which uses magic (or something like that anyway) to determine how dirty your dishes are and allocate resources accordingly. The hydro sensor sets the temperature automatically (between 46°- 65°) taking the worry out of programming the dishwasher and a water control system ensures no unnecessary water is heated or used. The appliance is cold fill only, again saving energy and money.
Customers were, on the whole, delighted with this appliance saying it was a pleasure to use. It is sturdily built of quality materials and good value for money. The Bosch Classixx SMV53A00GB retails at around £398.
