- Best overall dishwasher
- Bosch Series SHSMWN
- Type: Built-in, top control | Racks: | Noise: dB | Place Settings: | Energy Use: kWH | Features: Auto, Sensor Wash | App Control: No
- Excellent performance
- Third rack holds cutlery, small dishes
- Racks can be difficult to adjust
- Fixed tines make larger dishes awkward to place
The Bosch Series SHSMWN has it all: top cleaning performance, adjustable racks, and plenty of space for plates and dishes. Reviewers found that it had excellent cleaning performance, removing burnt-on stains and other food while never depositing it back on the other dishes. The removed food is held in a filter at the bottom of the dishwasher and then sluiced out when the wash is complete.
A rare feature at this price is a third rack. This thin rack slides into the top of the dishwasher and holds cutlery, small dishes and other items. The washer fires jets of water at this rack from the sides to give knives and forks a good cleaning.
Some reviewers noted that because of the arrangement of the tines the rods that stick up and hold plates in place, you can t fit in larger dishes or saucepans. The racks are adjustable but can be awkward to lift up and down. If the top-control, stainless-steel design of this model doesn t appeal to you, don t worry: Bosch offers a number of similar models with different styles of handles and control locations.
What Reviewers and Owners Say
Reviewedm: Bosch gets the closest we ve come to a perfect clean … won t be as quiet as one of Bosch s pricier models, and its third rack won t be able to fit as many items — but it will clean quickly, quietly and thoroughly.
Best Buy: Beautiful dishwasher! Runs very quietly I forget I have it running, except for the red light indicator, holds much more than our ancient dishwasher and cleans thoroughly!
- Another Top Pick
- KitchenAid KDTMDSS
- Type: Built-in, top control | Racks: | Noise: dB | Place Settings: | Energy Use: kWH | Features: ProDry, ProScrub, Sani Rinse, Top Rack Wash | App Control: No
- ProScrub gives bottom rack more cleaning performance
Some dishes on top rack don t get cleaned as well as those on the bottom rack
The KitchenAid KDTMDSS is an argument for patience. It s an older model that was first launched in , but the upside is that the price has been falling ever since. Now that this formerly high-end, expensive dishwasher is much more reasonably priced, we see it as another top pick.
The KDTMDSS has two racks and a silverware basket that clips into the top of the dishwasher interior. Some of the tines on each rack can be folded down to offer extra space for large dishes, although not all of the tines on the bottom rack fold down. Along with the usual spray arm under the bottom rack, an additional sprayer at the rear of the dishwasher KitchenAid calls this ProWash provides extra cleaning power for tough messes.
The reviewers found that this dishwasher had excellent cleaning performance, although the bottom rack was the place for really dirty dishes. Some more heavily stained dishes on the top rack were not cleaned as effectively. But as long as you put the really icky stuff on the bottom rack, this machine is excellent at cleaning dishes.
