Bosch was established in 1886 by Robert Bosch, today BSH and Siemens Home Appliance Group is part of the third largest appliance manufacturer in the world. Bosch is famous for raising the standards in appliance efficiency, quietness and design. Bosch is built upon fine German engineering and they have invested heavily in research and development to create the most advanced appliance technology available. For the last 3 years Bosch has won the Energy Star® Sustained Excellence Award. The Bosch US headquarters is located in Irvine California and their commitment to America is fortified by their appliance park in New Bern, North Carolina where Bosch Dishwashers, Ranges, Ovens and Cooktops are proudly made in the USA.
Bosch Dishwashers were once considered luxury appliances, but are now well within the reach of most budgets and are must-have 'time and energy saving' appliances. Bosch Dishwashers are once again, the winner JD Power and Associates for overall customer satisfaction. Bosch achieved the highest score in reliability and performance. The Bosch german engineering has produced the industry leading quietest line of dishwashers while simultaneously maintaining superior performance. Bosch dishwashers EcoAction technology also exceed Energy Star standards and can save you up to 2 gallons per load. All bosch dishwashers are proud to carry the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval.
Bosch Dishwashers come with a soil sensor to measure the turbidity of the water and will automatically adjust the setting to insure your dishes are clean while saving you money. They are so quiet, if you didn't know they were on, you could not tell they were running. These dishwashers feature noise reduction as low as 40 dBa, the lowest level in the USA, Period! Its ultra quiet, super efficient and most importantly, gets your dishes clean. These bosch dishwashers have 3 layers of sound absorbing coated metal and cotton fiber insulation. The two-pump motor system is suspended to reduce noise and vibration.
A bosch dishwasher is also one of the safest on the market. It has an automatic leak protection system called AquaStop. It automatically detects if any water seeps into the base and automatically stems the flow, disables operation and pumps out the water. Its Childlock safety mechanism prevents children from accessing the dishwasher while its running or from changing the wash program mid-cycle.
All Bosch Dishwashers are tested and must pass 485 quality control tests before they are certified to leave the factory. Each series is also endurance tested for up to 10 years of use, thats over 4000 wash cycles!
Both series are available in either the Bosch Evolution or Bosch Integra. The Evolution adds a touch of class to any kitchen. The Integra is the best Bosch Dishwasher available. Its manufactured with high quality stainless steel and is available in standard or a hidden control panel for seamless streamlined accents.
Ascenta Dishwasher Appearance
Stainless Steel Interior with Polypropylene Base.
Each Ascenta dishwasher is built with a revolutionary new wash tub made from stainless steel with a reinforced polypropylene base - a first in the U.S.
Polypropylene is a high-quality, long-term tested material that makes the tub of their Ascenta dishwasher significantly more durable than conventional all-plastic tubs found in competing machines.
The patented tub is food proof and color fast.

Half Load Option
Use this option when washing small, lightly soiled loads that fill half or less of the dishwasher's capacity on both the top and bottom racks.
t dramatically reduces energy and water consumption.
An advanced sensor system determines the soil level in the wash water and automatically deletes fresh water fills if they're not needed.
Saves you time and money while cutting energy usage by 20%.
Flow Through Water Heater
In conventional dishwashers, water falls randomly onto an exposed heating element.
And since not all the water touches the heating element, this results in slower and less energy-efficient heating.
Bosch dishwashers, on the other hand, channel 100% of the water through tighter coils in a confined heating chamber.
Which heats the water quickly and efficiently up to 161 degrees Fahrenheit.
Built with a solid stainless steel tub, Bosch dishwashers utilize condensation drying to save you money on your energy bills.
Condensation drying works by heating the dishes with hot water from the final rinse.
Moisture condenses on the cool stainless steel tub and is drained, so your clean dishes dry without an energy-wasting active drying element.
ENERGY STAR Qualified
Proving once again that Bosch is committed to efficiency, all of their dishwashers are ENERGY STAR qualified.
All their dishwashers boast certification from the National Sanitation Foundation.
Ensuring your dishes are 99.99% bacteria free at the end of each cycle.
This protocol establishes guidelines to determine sanitization and cleaning performance of residential spray-type dishwashers.
It includes minimum requirements to ensure that these machines will deliver wash water, detergent, and rinse water.
Which will render dishes, glasses, and utensils clean and sanitized.
The following Bosch wash cycles are NSF approved: Power Scrub Plus, Auto Super Wash, Auto Plus, AUTOWASH, Extreme Wash.
Ascenta Dishwasher Silence
53 dBA Silence Rating - Quietest in Class
Two-Pump Motor System
By using two small pumps to individually wash and drain instead of a single large one, vibration and noise are dramatically reduced.
Smaller parts and a more contained motion contribute an important part to their sound-reduction system.
Leaving you amazed that the dishwasher is even on.
The more isolated a motor is, the less its vibrations can be transferred.
So they've suspended their two-pump motor to help absorb and minimize any vibration and noise to the housing.
As it is absorbed by rubber hammocks, letting you enjoy your time in the kitchen whether the dishwasher is running or not.
Noise is also buried beneath the three layers of insulation inside their near-silent dishwashers.
Metal, cotton fiber and heavy-duty bitumen sheets capture and dampen sound to create a decibel level no louder than raindrops
(Insulation package varies by model.)
Ascenta Dishwasher Automation
4 Wash Cycles
Delay Start Option
With a nineteen or twenty four-hour timer, Bosch dishwashers work on your schedule.
Program them to start once guests leave or after you've drifted off to sleep.
Wait until you're out of the house, or run it in off-peak evening hours for even greater savings on your energy bill.
Ascenta Dishwasher Safety
Bosch offers a child lock for your children's safety and your peace of mind.
The control lock prevents changes to the wash program.
No Exposed Heating Element
Because their Flow Through Water Heater is not located in the tub and has no exposed heating element, it prevents plastic items on the bottom rack from melting.
It has the added benefit of protecting you from accidental burns during unloading.
