Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB

The Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB is a freestanding dishwasher, so it can’t be built into your kitchen or hidden away behind a cupboard. However, in this case, this isn’t a problem as the big, shiny and modern looking device is actually quite attractive. The display on the front of the Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB means that it’s very easy to use and programme, whilst also making it lovely to use and play with, which isn’t a quality you find in many dishwashers.

Qualities you do find in dishwashers are qualities relating to getting plates and cups clean. Thankfully the Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB has lots of these as well. It has a total of six different wash programmes, and five different temperatures to use with these programmes. It even has a half-load setting for if you only have a few dishes to wash. The Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB cleans these dishes very well, shifting even dried on food in some cases.

As the Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB is a big appliance it can fit a large load of dishes in. You can wash a whole 13 place settings, full crockery and cutlery, in the Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB at once, which should save you time loading and unloading the dishwasher. The dishes do tend to be a bit wet when they come out of the machine, though, so you might have to leave them to dry for a while or run a tea towel over them.

The Bosch Exxcel SMS65E12GB feels strong and well built. The inside is well designed, and you can adapt it depending on your different needs. Although it’s an expensive model you can see why as it does offer excellent cleaning and is good for larger families which produce a lot of dishes.
