Bosch SPS59L12GB

The Bosch SPS59L12GB is a slim, freestanding dishwasher with an excellent A* energy efficiency rating meaning that as well as appeasing the environment, it should also save you a bit of money on your electricity bills, too. Pairing this eco-friendly rating with equally impressive performances, the Bosch washer is capable of brilliantly impressive results.

Featuring a wide range of variable programme options, the Bosch SPS59L12GB also lets you select a cleaning method best attuned to the contents of the machine. Although most dishwashers offer this nowadays, the Bosch SPS59L12GB takes things to a whole new level with five selectable programmes partnering with four different temperatures. You can also select one of four special options — intensive zone, speed perfect, hygiene extra and extra dry.

All these different programmes mean you can set the Bosch SPS59L12GB to get your dishes really clean, which explains why it has an A-grade wash performance rating. More than a one trick pony, the unit also dries contents well too with the integrated heat exchanger proving efficient and hygienic whilst ensuring dishes should be ready to use as soon as the cycle is over. No wonder the Bosch SPS59L12GB also has a drying performance rating of A.

The self cleaning filter system stops you from faffing round with mucky water and removes the toil that comes with cleaning out your dishwasher. The Bosch SPS59L12GB is generally a user friendly, easy to work device that thanks to its quiet running will not intrude on your day-to-day life.

At the front of the Bosch SPS59L12GB is a display which tells you how much time the cycle has remaining. It’s a useful feature because the cycles on the Bosch SPS59L12GB can be exceptionally long — the eco cycle for instance can take up to three hours to complete. Looking at the bigger picture, this is just a minor quibble for a generally excellent machine.
