The subtleties of choosing a narrow dishwasher

A review of the best models with a description of the features and the rating of user reviews will help determine the choice of a home assistant.

General characteristics of Bosch dishwashers

Bosch brand equipment is in constant demand due to reliability, high technology and a loyal pricing policy. In the arsenal of the company a wide selection dishwashing equipment.

Despite the different characteristics and prices, all cars have some common features:

  1. Cost-effectiveness. Bosch freestanding dishwashers belong to the energy consumption class from A +++ to A. The presence of additional advantages indicates maximum energy efficiency. The water consumption of most models is 8-12 liters per cycle.
  2. Inverter motor. The introduction of the iQdrive brushless motor contributes to the economical consumption of resources, increases the reliability of equipment and reduces the buzz during operation.
  3. Hopper ergonomics. Regardless of the dimensions of the dishwasher, the washing chamber is very practical - retractable baskets, several loading levels, lifting shelves and holders are provided.
  4. Pretty quiet move. Noise level of the working unit within 46 dB.Of course, Bosch dishwashers cannot be called absolutely silent, but some freestanding models emit only 41 dB.
  5. Leakage protection. All dishwashers are equipped with the AquaStop security system. The manufacturer provides a guarantee of complete protection against leaks for 10 years.
  6. Salt / Rinse Aid Indicators. On board all Bosch machines, the user is informed about the need for “refueling” with consumables.
  7. Load sensor. There is an option that controls the flow of water - the technique itself determines the amount of dishes.

In addition, a common feature of freestanding units is the condensation type of drying. The last rinse takes place in heated water. Residual moisture condenses due to the heat from the dishes - natural evaporation occurs rather slowly.

Narrow Bosch Model
Corporation production facilities are located in different countries. Dishwashers are mainly manufactured in factories in Spain, Germany and Poland.

Speaking about the specific advantages of 45 cm freestanding units, it can be noted:

  • free placement and mobility of equipment;
  • complete kitchen without the need for replacing furniture;
  • possibility of use in a limited space;
  • simplicity of diagnostics and repair - no dismantling difficulties, as with integrated equipment.

Narrow freestanding Bosch dishwashers are 10-15% cheaper completely embedded models similar capacity and functionality. In addition, all models of the German brand have a stylish design and are perfect for different interior kitchen solutions.

Freestanding dishwasher
Most Bosch models are equipped with a start delay timer - the dishwasher turns on at the set time. Interval range - 3-24 hours

Technology and innovation of the German brand

Bosch uses many innovative developments designed to improve the usability of the equipment. Some of the functions overlap with Siemens dishwasher options, since both brands belong to the same concern. Consider the most useful technical solutions that you should pay attention to when choosing a narrow machine.

AquaSensor. The sensor determines the turbidity of the medium, the presence of food debris on the dishes. Based on the data obtained, the unit controls the washing parameters: pressure, temperature, duration and number of rinses. The technology is aimed at increasing the efficiency of the dishwasher - the quality of work improves, and the consumption of resources is reduced.

Rackmatic Basket
Rackmatic. The system of changing the location of the upper basket. The height of the box is adjustable using a lever - the offset interval is 2.5-5 cm. Free layout makes it possible to rationally use the space of the hopper

VarioFlexPlus. The most practical, convenient box system. The stability of fragile dishes in the upper compartment is achieved by 8 moving elements. In the lower basket regulating plates holders are also provided.

VarioDrawerPlus Technology
VarioDrawerPlus. Optional third tray for small items. The depth of the compartment is 5 cm, this is enough to accommodate coffee cups, cutlery, ladles or chopping boards

Duopower. The advanced dishwasher irrigation system is a double rocker located in the upper basket. A versatile water supply speeds up and improves the rinsing process.

Activewater. Updated microprocessor-based circulation hydraulic system. The unit determines how the dishes are placed, what pressure and heating water will be required. An intelligent dishwasher is energy efficient - water consumption is reduced by 20%, and electricity - by 10%.

DosageAssist Fixture
DosageAssist. Special dispenser for pills. Detergent under the action of directed jets quickly dissolves and enters the main hopper with dishes. The device does not allow tablets to get lost among the dishes, but contributes to their uniform distribution

Servo schloss. The lock providing tight closing of a door. If the opening angle is less than 10 degrees, then an automatic door closer is triggered.

AquaVario. Technology for regulating water supply pressure. There are three options for pressure head.The unit automatically selects the pressure taking into account the dirty dishes. The cleaner the kitchenware, the weaker the pressure.

Zeolit. Innovative drying using zeolite properties. The natural mineral absorbs moisture, and when dried, it generates thermal energy.

Zeolite drying
Zeolit ​​technology is implemented in premium dishwashers. In the basement of the device there is a tank with zeolite, where water flows after washing. Subsequently, hot air forms, which is fed back to the hopper and dries the dishes

There are 5 programs in the basic configuration of Bosch free-standing dishwashers:

  1. Intense. The main wash cycle is at 70 ° C, the last rinse is at 65 ° C. This mode is suitable for coarse dishes, cutlery, pots with badly sticky, dried out or burnt-out leftovers.
  2. Normal. A sink at 60 ° C is optimal for mixed kitchen items of varying degrees of contamination.
  3. Economy. Daily use program for washing dishes with ordinary or slightly dried out food residues. The main cycle temperature is 50 ° C, rinsing is 65 ° C.
  4. Delicate. Gentle washing mode for cleaning plates, cups made of fragile material. The program is suitable for devices made of glass or heat-sensitive plastic. TEN heats water up to 40 ° C, at the final rinse - up to 55 ° C.
  5. Fast. The operating parameters are similar to the previous mode, but there is no preliminary rinsing of the dishes. The washing temperature is 45 ° C.

In more expensive models, additional programs are provided: preliminary rinsing, half loading, night or automatic mode. When choosing Auto the unit independently selects the intensity and temperature of the washing based on the loading of the chamber and the contamination of the dishes.

VarioSpeed ​​Option
Additional features: VarioSpeed ​​and Hygiene. The first option is responsible for accelerating typical programs by 20-50%. The second provides disinfection of cutting boards, baby bottles - the temperature of washing and rinsing rises

Universal program - Intensivezone. In this mode, fragile and coarse dishes can be loaded at the same time. Water is supplied to the lower container under high pressure, and to the upper one, under low pressure. In addition, the heating temperature is different.

However, among experienced users, negative reviews and complaints about the fragility of technology are increasingly found.

TEN with the pump for the dishwasher
The most popular complaint to the manufacturer is the failure of the heater after 3-4 years of service. Spare parts are expensive - the heater is supplied assembled with a pump, which almost doubles the cost. As a result, you will have to pay almost half the price of a new dishwasher for repairs

Some complain about the leakage of the pallet gasket - this defect occurs after 5-6 years of operation. With a sufficiently high cost of a dishwasher, most rely on the uninterrupted operation of the unit for at least 10 years.

The wear rate of components is often associated with the country of manufacture. The equipment of domestic and Chinese assembly Bosch is inferior to immigrants from European countries.

Marking and Series of Freestanding Models

The name of the equipment contains the basic parameters of the equipment. Bosch dishwasher marking consists of alphanumeric designations. Let's try to figure out what's what with the example of the freestanding machine SPS58M98EU. For clarity, we divide the common marker into five parts - SPS 58 M 98 EU.

First group. Alphabetic characters indicate the type of technology and design features. The very first marker "S"Means dishwasher, from the English word"spueler"- rinse.

The second character describes the width and generation of the issue:

  • P - 45 cm, a narrow unit from the new series;
  • R - 45 cm, compact equipment of the previous generation;
  • G or M - 60 cm, full-size modifications of the old and new release, respectively;
  • B - the standard width is 60 cm, but the increased height is 86.5 cm;
  • K - desktop compact dishwasher.

In this example, this P, which indicates a narrow 45-centimeter version.

The third character indicates the installation method and is displayed in the capitalized letter in the article.

Bosch dishwasher marking
Explanation of designations: S - freestanding modification, V - fully integrated technology, I - integrable model with an open panel

Accordingly, the above model is freestanding, as indicated by the third letter S in its name.

Second group. These signs characterize operating parameters. The first digit usually indicates the number of programs. The second marker is an indicator of intrasystem configuration.

Possible options:

  • 0-2 - the presence of two boxes in the hopper;
  • 3-4 - VarioFlex system without an additional third basket;
  • 5-6 - VarioFlexPlus, there is no third box;
  • 7-9 - three loading levels.

In this example, this is the presence of VarioFlexPlus, without a third box, which corresponds to the figure 5. And here 8 testifies to three levels of loading of the unit.

Marker of the third group. The letter indicates a class of technology. Conventionally, all 45 cm Bosch free-standing dishwashers can be divided into three groups:

  • A, E, F, D, L - Economy-class series, models are endowed with basic functionality and are distinguished by a relatively low price;
  • M, K, N - units of the product line "comfort" with improved capabilities;
  • T, X, U - premium segment dishwashers with additional programs and the most energy-efficient operation.

Accordingly, the letter "M"Indicates that the model in question belongs to dishwashers with improved capabilities of the Comfort line.

Fourth group. Technical information of the manufacturer that does not have special significance for the buyer. Decryption of numeric characters is not available to the public.

Fifth group. A letter marker indicating the region of manufacture and the main sales market:

  • EU - European countries;
  • UC - Canada and the USA;
  • SK - Scandinavia;
  • RU - Russia.

Now we summarize the characteristics of the dishwasher SPS58M98EU in question. This is a stand-alone narrow base model with a three-tier loading system. The unit belongs to the Comfort series and is aimed at the European consumer.

  1. Elena

    For me, a freestanding dishwasher was the salvation in the country, when the built-in kitchen was already equipped. We put it next to the furniture. Now we have absolutely no problem washing dishes in a large family. Since there are plenty of people gathering at the dacha, you have to load the car after each meal. Unload it immediately on the table. Water consumption is minimal, electricity is also. The main thing is to pick up good washing tablets so that there are no white stains on the dishes and smell.

  2. I like the Bosch dishwasher for its efficiency, since only 8 liters of water are consumed per cycle. This is a great option for those who save water, for example, as we are in the summer cottage. After washing, there are absolutely no streaks on the dishes, and it does not smell like detergent. Although I had concerns about this because of the low water consumption. I am satisfied with the quality of the washing. And the fact that the machine is not built into the kitchen. This is convenient when the furniture is already arranged and there is no place for a dishwasher.
