It cleans to perfection, and you can't even hear it running.
So much room in this machine, for all your needs. The adjustable height middle shelf is perfect and simple to lower leaving ample room for wine glasses or any tall items.
The drying is another great feature, no more water sitting on the coffee cups or glasses
Great, so quiet love it.
It cleans the dishes so well and the racks are well spaced and easy to use. Love how quiet the machine is no loud banging, great product. Can adjust shelving to suit large pots and pans as well as the cultery tray is great and works well to clean all the items.

I selected the SMU88TS03A “ActiveWater” Bosch with their new Zeolith drying technology. The best deal was from Harvey Norman Supa Centa. If you do not get a deal including metro delivery for less than $1,900 then your sales person needs to work a little harder. If this is too much, you could go without the Zeolith technology and the “Emotion” internal lighting (SMU88TS01A) and save a few hundred dollars. I just LOVE this dishwasher. It is like stepping into the future after my SMEG model. Nothing plastic-y, has a real tight/solid feel to it, is...really-REALLY quiet (42 decibels) with 4.5 star energy and 5 star water consumption (on eco program). The top cutlery drawer is far superior to those pesky baskets which often take up space and get in the way. The upper cup/glass drawer has 3 height settings, easily changed by pressing the side switches, rather than needing to pull the whole thing out and change the rollers/runners. I have been able to wash the larger plates without needing any drawer adjustment and the plates we have with the deeper sides fit in with ease, whereas in my previous machine it was quite a struggle and they usually ended up on a slant and not quite fitting. You can even remove the upper drawer and use the spray-head attachment which enables you to wash very large oven racks and trays. The VarioDrawer (PRO) and RackmaticPlus enables you to have complete control over which prongs you want up or down. Great design allows you to have them split half-up and half-down, so you can widen or narrow the spacings as required, in one part or as a section, or the whole basket can be adjusted to have no prongs to get in the way of loading awkward items. Interior LED lighting is not essential, but good to have. The controls, setup and operation are simple, easy to use and are logical. I have no complaints what so ever and am glad I decided to go with an upper-end machine rather than pay less for something less spec’d and inferior. If you have had a broken dishwasher and gone back to manual washing-up for a period, you will be well aware how useful and time/effort saving a dishwasher truly is. Considering how often it is used and how long they last, if you can afford it I would always consider paying more for a higher-end, well-built product with superior features and benefits, rather than the plastic-y, less efficient but cheaper version.

Questions & Answers
Hi, I am looking for a dishwasher that obviously washes and dries dishes well but also has facility to place and clean Tupperware type plastic containers without them turning upside down during the cycle.
Also, I am single as yet so not too many dishes pile up and as yet I don't cook daily so don't always have big pots and pans. I saw somewhere online that Bosch has dish drawers - do you? i couldn't find it on your site. I am not very keen on leaving dirty dishes in the sink till there are enough dishes and pots and pans to load the dishwasher. Any suggestions for this scenario? Thanks.
I noticed that the built under model isn't finger print resistant whereas that stand alone version of the series 8 is.
What are your thoughts on the finger print marks?
(Quite a concern for me given I have two little kids)
I havent noticed any finger prints on ours and , until recently, we had 4 kids living here. To be honest I didnt even know about the finger print thing. our machine has had a hard 6 moths washing daily for 4 adults and 4 children and I suppose I am just grateful that it has handled the pressure so easily.
Do any of the Bosch dishwashers come with both cutlery drawer and basket?
