The SMS53E22GB Bosch Dishwasher from their Exxcel range. This dishwasher may be a little more up market from some other Bosch dishwasher models but from that it manages to score a higher overall rating. Some of its main features:
- It has A++ performance rating!
- The drying performance is rated at A
- Limits water consumption only using 10 Liters
- Load sensor that detect your placed items and can control the cycle speed and water levels accordingly
- Quiet when running, some say too quiet, they even have to check to ensure it is running!
- 5 Programmes to wash at: Intensive 70 °C, Auto 45-65 °C, Economy 50 °C, Quick Wash 45 °C and Pre Rinse
Like some other models was cycles seem to be a little long and unfortunately some of these cycles are the same although still contains the quick wash programme for a quick 30 minute wash. Also with this model comes the speed perfect option that actually can cut down some cycle time so is an improvement from some previous Bosch Dishwasher models.
Downfalls; Well the supplied manual is not the best with “ok” instructions, but some features are not explained as good as they could be. The cost makes it a bit of a decision on its own due to more competitive dishwashers around that are cheaper. However it is from Bosch which holds a high rating for performance and lifespan. No half load features seems to have been implemented in this model so a slight energy saver feature has been lost there too.
Bosch Dishwasher Summary
Overall the SMS53E22GB Bosch dishwasher offers a great energy saving model with extra features although it has lost some features such as half load. The biggest problem with this Bosch dishwasher would be the price as this can be a big factor when considering purchasing this appliance.
We rate the SMS40C02GB Bosch Dishwasher at a 4 possibly it would be higher if it was just not as pricey.
