Do i need an air gap installed?

Asked by Tasha October 10, 2020

Hi Tasha. Thank you for your question. All of our dishwasher drain hoses are installed with a high loop so you would only need an air gap if required by local ordinance.

Does this dishwasher dry dishes?

Asked by Syl July 30, 2020
1
Answer

Syl, Thank you for your question and interest in Bosch 300 series dishwasher. Your question, according to leading consumer reporting magazine, is the #2 complaint by consumers for all dishwashers. Fortunately, that same leading consumer reporting magazine performed test and determined Bosch dishwasher to be one of the best drying dishwashers available. I would also refer you to the majority of consumer reviews on homedepot.com for this model, you will find the majority of reviews indicate the dishwasher dries well. Bosch dishwashers utilize PureDry™ condensation drying as the basic drying process. PureDry™ is an energy efficient, closed drying system that does not pull in outside air or use an exposed heating element. So you can rest assured that your dishes aren’t just dry, they’re PureDry™. Bosch dishwashers with the PureDry™ system also feature a Sanitize Option that ends each cycle with an extra hot wash, heating the water to 162 degrees and effectively eliminating 99.9% of bacteria. The results are thoroughly clean, sanitized, and dry dishes. With PureDry™ drying technology, moisture is gently whisked away from dishes as they cool. And with no exposed heating element, you can safely place plastics anywhere, even the bottom rack, without fear they will warp or melt. For more information on PureDry™ please go to https://www.bosch-home.com/us/experience-bosch/puredry. Ultimately, the number one recommendation by all dishwasher manufacturers to improve drying is to use rinse aid which causing sheeting action on dishware and sides of tub which allows moisture to sheet off and go down the drain. Number two recommendation by manufacturers is to NOT prewash you dishes, rather simply scrape off food debris and place directly into dishwasher. Today's detergents need the soil from the food to activate the enzymes in the detergent. Without food soil then detergent does not activate and you are left with essentially and long rinse cycle. Also most dishwashers have sensors in the pump which sense the amount of food soil in the water, if the sensors do not detect dirty water then dishwashers will default to lowest energy wash and rinse cycle and wash with shortest and coldest wash & rinse water. This affects cleaning and drying results. Recommendation number three is to select SANITZE option for hottest final rinse temperature which improves condensate drying effect. Finally, bowls, cups, and containers with depressions in the bottoms and lips can collect water. Tilt bowls, cups, and containers so that water runs off the bottoms and lips, DO NOT lay flat. Bosch dishwasher with RackMatic middle racks can be tilted to one side for improved water run off and thus improved drying. If you have any other questions regarding Bosch dishwasher please call Bosch Customer Service at 800-944-2904 for assistance.

The 18" unit is about 17.7" wide. If your cut out is 21", you will need some sort of vertical filler pieces to make it look good.

Great dishwaher!
Great dishwasher! Easy to install, came with all necessary parts, and looks good. One suggestion is to buy the finish jet dry to assist with the drying process, it helps wonders.

I bought a 1928 bungalow several years ago and while I love the house, the fact that it did not have a dishwasher was the one thing that drove me a little crazy. I did not have space for a built in 24", so I researched the 18" units. I am very pleased with this purchase, and it seems to really get everything clean. It is pretty quiet and does not bother us in a small space. Overall very satisfied!

I have a small kitchen and knew I wanted a narrow dishwasher to maximize cabinet space. I also knew I wanted a Bosch because they are so highly rated. This was a great choice for me. Not the cheapest option but based on its reputation for reliability to me it was worth it. Truly whisper quiet operation. A little odd with the controls. I had to read the manual to understand operation and I've had modern dishwashers in other houses. Mainly, and still I don't understand why, there is not a heated dry option. I've read the Bosch website and product manuals, and it is still not clear. Too clever for its own good is my opinion. Dishes dry though. The only things I am unhappy with is how tall the tub is and the layout of the racks. I have 12" plates and they hit the rack above no matter how high I adjust it. I think the AquaStop "leak control" tub underneath eats up valuable space. The center arms still spin but I've never had issues with my plates fitting a dishwasher before. It's also difficult to configure the dishwasher when loading. Everything comes out clean though. Warning be careful how much detergent you use. It is smaller. Overflowing the dispenser left a smell on my glasses. Had to run a rinse cycle to clear up. Otherwise happy with.

This dishwasher is a game-changer! I recently moved to a 1940's home with a small kitchen. The kitchen did not have a dishwasher, and dishes kept piling up on the counter and in the sink. I'm so glad I decided to purchase this appliance. I was hesitant given the higher price point when compared to some other models, but the reviews convinced me and I'm glad I went with it. Delivery was on time, friendly and efficient. This dishwasher's compact size and depth fit neatly under a counter when we made space by removing a cabinet, and the size is an appropriate scale for smaller kitchens. My contractor had no problems installing the plumbing and electrical for it. I've used it now for a few weeks and am so impressed by the functionality! Even though it's smaller than a regular sized dishwasher, the layout, adjustability, and features of the racks all really pack a punch. I can easily load my dishes, utensils, cookwares, etc.; it works perfectly for us in keeping a clean kitchen. I'm also surprised by how quiet it is compared to other dishwashers I've used. The quietness level is a particularly important feature to us because sound carries through to so many parts of our small home. Really pleased with this product; it has made spending time in the kitchen much more enjoyable.
