Bosch SMS53E22GB

The Bosch SMS53E22GB is a freestanding dishwasher that looks rather nice. Most dishwashers look big and clunky, but with clean lines, a shiny colour and a lovely modern looking control panel on the top, this Bosch model wouldn’t look out of place in a stylish kitchen and won’t stand out for being ugly.

With an A* energy efficiency rating, which is higher than most other dishwashers, the Bosch SMS53E22GB won’t use lots and lots of electricity, as such, helping cut down on your energy bills. The other thing that will cut down on your energy bills is not using the dishwasher as much, and because the Bosch SMS53E22GB has a fantastic 13 place setting capacity you won’t have to run so many washes to get all your dishes clean.

There are five different wash programmes in the Bosch SMS53E22GB, which use five different temperatures, so you’ll always be able to programme it to run depending on what the dishes need to get clean. You can always use the automatic programme setting if you can’t be bothered to fiddle with it, though, and if you need to get your dishes clean in a hurry there’s a handy quick-wash feature. The Bosch SMS53E22GB does get dishes clean, too, as the A cleaning efficiency rating will attest to.

Whilst the display on the front of the Bosch SMS53E22GB is an attractive addition it’s also a functional one telling you things like how long the programme has left before it’s finished running. You’ll need this firstly because the Bosch SMS53E22GB is so incredibly quiet you won’t be able to tell the difference between it running and it being off and secondly because the cycle times are so long.

The Bosch SMS53E22GB is undeniably expensive, but you do get what you pay for.
