Bosch Launches U.S. Dishwasher Line

Bosch Home Appliances in North American launched its next-generation dishwasher line. The new line is built on a new stainless steel platform designed to meet the needs of U.S. consumers. The new dishwashers feature a third rack on more models. It also features a European design and is engineered for the virtually silent performance that is a part of the Bosch reputation in the United States.

The redesigned dishwasher line incorporates a full-size stainless steel tub, enabling the use of larger racks while maintaining flush installation.

The third rack is now offered in Bosch 500 and 800 series models. The third rack adds 30% more loading area and provided more loading flexibility. The unique, V-shaped third rack allows room for long-stemmed wine glasses on the second rack while the center of the v-shaped rack provides space for large items and cooking utensils.

The company said it designed the 800 Plus to be the quietest dishwasher in North America, and has now been made quieter. The dishwasher achieved an industry-best 38 dBA performance in normal operation.

Bosch Home Appliances said its research shows noise is the No. 1 factor for consumers choosing a dishwasher. Company engineers addressed noise reduction with 18 unique sound-reduction technologies.

With the dishwasher noise level so low, an InfoLight has been included in some models to let consumers know their dishwasher is running. A TimeLight feature indicates time remaining.

The Bosch 800 Plus is the flagship of the dishwasher line includes: It has a suggested retail price of $1,449 – $2,099.
