When it comes to time to buy a new dishwasher, it can be overwhelming. Technology has worked its way into these useful kitchen appliances, and sometimes those new high-tech features can come with a price tag. With this article, we’re taking a look at a few must-have dishwasher features worth paying for. Plus, we’ll talk about one dishwasher that has them all – the Bosch AutoAir™ Bosch 500 Series dishwasher.
The next time you’re dishwasher shopping, here are a few features to consider:
One size does not fit all when it comes to dish sizes. Shopping for a dishwasher with adjustable racks will give you the flexibility to wash dishes, pots, and pans of varying sizes. If you plan on washing stemware (like wine glasses) in your dishwasher, look for racks that will safely hold the glasses while washing.
The Bosch AutoAir™ Bosch 500 Series dishwashers come with a flexible 3rd rack you can use to add space for cooking utensils and smaller items. Along with their RackMatic® feature which allows you to select one of 3 different rack high levels, you can customize up to 9 different rack positions so you can customize each load for your needs.
No one likes the smell of mildew or spoiled food – especially not coming out of an appliance that’s supposed to keep your dishes clean. Dishwashers with stainless steel tubs will help avoid odors which can be absorbed into plastic tubs, making it a feature worth paying for.
Along with having stainless steel tubs, the Bosch 500 series takes odor-fighting to the next level with their AutoAir™ feature. The all-new AutoAir™ option automatically releases the door at the end of the cycle to let moisture escape and fresh air in for better drying results.*
If you use the dishwasher often, it’s even more important to look for a dishwasher with the Energy Star Labels. While they can be a little more expensive upfront, the savings these energy and water-efficient dishwashers will give you over the life of the dishwasher is worth it.
Every Bosch dishwasher is ENERGY STAR qualified and meets or exceeds federal guidelines, for year-round energy savings.
Whether you’re trying to relax or have a conversation, the loud rumbles of a dishwasher aren’t something you want to hear. Dishwashers with extra insulation reduce the noise of the dishwasher during insulation. They can cost more, but quality dishwashers, like Bosh models, are so quiet you’ll hardly know they’re on.
The Bosch AutoAir™ Bosch 500 Series dishwasher is extremely quiet at just 44 dBA. It incorporates 18 unique sound-reducing technologies such as multiple insulation layers, grindless food filtration, and a sound-absorbing base so you can wash your dishes in peace.
