Energy Star rated dishwashers clean quietly

For a dishwasher, quiet operation may be just as important as energy efficiency.

Research shows that noise is the top factor for consumers when choosing a dishwasher. For this reason, Bosch engineers addressed noise reduction, incorporating 18 unique sound-reduction technologies.

At the 2015 International Builders' Show, Nitasha Rohatgi, associate brand manager for  Bosch Appliances, review some of the features of the new dishwasher line.

Because Bosch dishwashers are so quiet, the company added an InfoLight in select models to let consumers know their dishwasher is running. The TimeLight feature indicates the time remaining is available in the 800 Plus series models. Other noise-defeating technologies include two Eco-Silence brushless motors and a grindless, triple filtration system to reduce noise, vibration and the need for a loud food disposal.

Rohatgi noted the new line of Bosch dishwashers feature a third rack in Bosch’s 500 and 800 series models. The third rack adds thirty percent more loading area while providing increased flexibility. The unique v-shaped third rack allows room for long-stemmed wine glasses on the second rack while the center of the v-shaped rack provides the perfect space for large items and cooking utensils.

Bosch has made the 800 Plus, the quietest dishwasher in North America, even quieter achieving an industry best 38 dBA performance in normal operation. Some models in the line are Energy Star rated, Rohatgi said.
