Although these devices are small in size, they demonstrate a high class of processing dishes and reliable long-lasting service. We will tell you how to choose the best model for you from the vast assortment of a renowned manufacturer. We will introduce you to the sales leaders who are actively in demand by the consumer.

Features of household appliances "Bosch"

The world famous Bosch company was created at the end of the 19th century, when the German engineer R. Bosch opened a workshop for electrical and precision mechanical devices.

Now the company produces industrial equipment, power tools, automotive products. Great importance is also attached to the production of consumer products, among which innovative household appliances occupy a special place.

In 1965, the first Bosch dishwasher was manufactured, which allows you to get impeccably clean appliances with minimal effort. Such products were enthusiastically met on the market, which stimulated the creation of new lines of models.

Bosch Company
Bosch is headquartered near Stuttgart (Germany), and its subsidiaries and representative offices are located in more than 60 countries.

Now dozens are represented in the catalogs of the company great dishwasher modelsvarying in quality and design. In addition to full-size modifications, compact models are also being developed for residents of small apartments with miniature kitchens.

Regardless of size, innovative developments are applied in the technology that improve the quality of washing and comfort in use. Most models featureAquastop, which guarantees protection against leaks, which ensures the safe use of dishwashers. Of particular importance is this feature for embedded modifications.

Bosch Aquastop System Component
The unique Aquastop hose design eliminates the possibility of leakage in the event of damage or wear to the water pipe

SystemAquaSensor allows you to control the presence of contaminants and foam in the water. Thanks to this technology, the number of rinses and the detergent content are regulated. Bosch active water- automatic calculation of water and electricity depending on the load. The option also helps reduce machine maintenance costs.

FunctionalVarioSpeedreduces the cycle time while maintaining a high degree of processing utensils. This saves time and water. TechnologyAquaVarioIt is designed for processing dishes made of fragile materials. By turning on this mode, you can qualitatively wash glass and porcelain products, taking into account their level of contamination.

Comfort using Bosch models
The Bosch dishwasher is so easy to use that even a child can easily master it. Of course, under the supervision of mom

OptionHygieneIt is especially demanded in families where there are children or persons suffering from allergies. The program provides for the disinfection of the contents of the machine with hot water, as well as an additional rinse of dishes. This contributes to the destruction of the vast majority of microorganisms and leaching of residues of detergents.

An interesting technology isIntensivezone, allowing simultaneous implementation of two modes. Cars with this option have a tank divided into two parts. In one compartment, fragile dishes are washed, and in the other, appliances that require enhanced processing.

Almost all Bosch dishwashers are equipped with features such asServo schloss and EcoSilenceDrive. The first of them is a reliable corporate latch lock, and the second is an inverter motor that provides effective long-term operation with low noise level.

Bosch dishwasher doors open / close without the slightest effort. Even at a slight angle, the door opens automatically

Varieties of compact dishwashers

There are several categories of small household appliances. Each type has its own characteristics. At the location they are divided into separately placed and built-in, in size - into narrow and full-sized.

Freestanding devices

Compact size options almost do not differ from the microwave, which saves a lot of space. Such devices are well suited for a small family or may be an option for suburban housing.

Freestanding devices, also often referred to as desktop modelsusually have dimensions 55x50x45. The capacity, measured in the number of devices that can be processed in 1 cycle, is 6.

Bosch miniature units have high performance. According to the class of washing and energy consumption, they belong to class A; drying level can be A and B.

Multicolored Bosch Patterns
In addition to traditional snow-white appliances, Bosch produces a line of compact devices painted in bright colors: yellow, scarlet, black. The model executed in a dark tone looks visually smaller than similar light ones.

The internal structure of such models has common features. In the lower sector there is a wave-shaped spray device, above which there is a compartment for dishes and a basket where cutlery is placed.

Special containers designed for detergents, rinse aid, salt. There is also a “3 in 1” option for using combined funds.

Most often, in small dishwashers, condensation drying is used, which is simple and hygienic, although it takes a lot of time. Some models may have an extra-drying option.

As a rule, miniature units are equipped with 4-6 programs. These include:

  • pre-soaking recommended for heavily soiled appliances;
  • intensive washing;
  • standard operating mode;
  • delicate tableware;
  • economical washing.

The number of temperature conditions can vary from 2 to 5, and the noise level can be in the range of 42-56 decibels. Water consumption depends on the parameters, the characteristics of the modification and the selected mode. As a rule, it does not exceed 9 liters per full cycle. The price range of models is 12-18 thousand rubles.

Built-in dishwasher options

Such modifications to Bosch products are practically no different from freestanding machines. Basically, their differences relate only to the appearance, since they are designed to be embedded in furniture.

Built-in dishwasher
Built-in units can have a sufficiently large width, slightly less than 60 cm, while they have a smaller depth and height. Typically, such devices are mounted under the sink or in the cabinet

These dishwashers are designed to wash 6-8 dish sets. Embedded Models can have up to five modes of operation.

They also have additional functions installed, for example, VarioSpeed, AquaSensor, ServoSchloss mechanical lock, AquaStop leakage protection, child lock. The cost of such devices is slightly higher than compact analogues, and is in the range of 22-30 thousand rubles.

45 cm wide cars

Such devices are a kind of compromise between full-size and compact desktop devices. If compact models can be recommended to a small family, then narrow ones are quite suitable for a large family, while a modest space is required for placement.

Narrow model dishwasher
In 45-centimeter versions, not only 6, but also 9-10 sets of dishes are placed, in addition, they have advanced functionality. The design provides a timer that allows you to apply the delayed start option

Models of this type have a slightly different organization of space. Two boxes and the same number of spray units are installed inside. All main containers, for example, containers or baskets, have larger sizes than compact analogues.

The number of modes, noise level, as well as additional features depend on the features of the modification. Cost narrow cars largely depends on the number of additional options and starts from 20,000 rubles. In addition to the usual, there are built-in options that cost significantly more (from 25 thousand rubles and above).

Advantages and disadvantages of mini devices

The advantages of such products are quite obvious. First of all, these are compact sizes, thanks to which the devices can be easily placed even in a miniature kitchen, by installing them on a countertop or under the sink.

The light weight inherent in such a device ensures the mobility of such models, so that you can easily change their place in the kitchen, and if necessary deliver to a service center.

The disadvantages include a small capacity, which is why compact cars are difficult to use for a large family. In addition, there are difficulties with the processing of bulky dishes.

Economical compact model
Compact units are highly economical. They allow you to wash a large number of dishes with a minimum consumption of electricity and water

Some users have noted difficulties with service. In the centers it is not always possible to get the spare parts needed to replace damaged parts. Regardless of size, the machine requires connection to a sewer and water supply network, as well as a socket device with mandatory grounding.

The functionality of compact dishwashers is still less than that of full-size counterparts. Miniature cars equipped with a large number of options are close in price to the prices of 60-centimeter modifications.

    I agree with the rating, Bosch Serie 2 SKS 41E11 - a great dishwasher. My helper! Our kitchen is small, there is not enough space for anything, so we took a compact dishwasher. But despite its compactness, it is quite roomy. At a time, my pan and pan, and several more plates are placed. 4 modes, nothing more. Minor cons: there is no indicator of the remaining time and there is no additional rinse.
