50 dB Silence Rating SENSOTRONIC
An advanced scanning eye examines the level of soil in the wash water and automatically deletes a secondary fresh-water fill if not needed, saving you time and money while cutting energy usage by 20%. Suspension Motor
The two-pump motor is suspended to help absorb and minimize any vibration and noise.
Flow-Through Water Heater
By passing water through a heating chamber, it allows the water to reach temperatures of up to 161°F safely and quickly.
This means you can place plastic items in the bottom rack without fear of melting or damage.
Bosch uses the residual heat from the warm water inside its tub.
A sanitizing temperature of 161°F leaves residual heat in the tub, creating condensation along the cooler wall.
The condensation is then drained so you'll never have to release steam into the kitchen. NSF Certified Units and Cycles
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.
NSF Certified Cycles include: Power Scrub Plus, Scrub Wash, Regular Wash, Delicate/Economy Wash, Auto Super Wash, AUTOWASH, Auto Delicate Wash, Extreme Wash, Enviro Wash ENERGY STAR Qualified and NSF Certified
Proving once again that Bosch is committed to efficiency, all of their dishwashers are ENERGY STAR qualified.
They also boast NSF certification for 9 out of 12 wash cycles, ensuring your dishes are 99.99% bacteria free at the end of each cycle.
Two-Pump Motor System
By using two small pumps to individually wash and drain, vibration and noise are dramatically reduced.
Smaller parts and a more contained motion contribute an important part to the sound-reduction system.

Start the machine and the sprinkler evenly distributes water across every large item, for sparkling-clean results every time.
