Overview of Bosch freestanding dishwashers 45 cm

Freestanding machines Bosch 45 cmIt is very difficult to imagine a kitchen without household appliances. Refrigerator, microwave, washing machine have become indispensable helpers. However, filling such a small space in the kitchen with such a technique is becoming increasingly difficult. Where to put the dishwasher, if its dimensions are very impressive. That is why you need to look at narrow models, so that you also have a chance to buy a dishwasher. We will review the Bosch 45 cm freestanding dishwashers, find out their practical features and disadvantages.

We evaluate the characteristics

No one wants to waste money. This is exactly what can happen if you choose a dishwasher spontaneously, so to speak, to take the first model you like. Still, we recommend not to rush and evaluate the characteristics of freestanding dishwashers, first of all we look at:

  • dimensions. Find out the exact size of the machine and compare it with measurements of free space in the kitchen. It will be a shame if the machine does not pass between the cabinet and the wall of the refrigerator. Despite the fact that such a machine model can be put anywhere, it is unlikely in a small kitchen, such a space can be found;
  • washing chamber capacity. Most manufacturers indicate in the instructions the capacity of 9 or 10 sets of standard dishes. There are cars with a capacity of 11 sets. However, in practice, not everything is so simple. The number of items that you can fit in the washing chamber will depend on the shape of the baskets and the possibility of their transformation.

Many users note that the retractable cutlery tray is much more convenient than the basket for spoons and forks, which takes up a lot of useful space for plates.

  • power usage. Modern PMMs have a class of energy consumption from A ++ to A, which is in the range of 0.68 - 0.92 kW / h. This is quite normal, even economical;
  • type of management. Most models have electronic controls that are intuitive to anyone. At the same time, there are cars, both with a display and without it. In our opinion, this is a matter of taste and habit. However, if there is no display, then you can save a little;freestanding PMM
  • water consumption. This parameter is no less important, but when compared with a manual sink, even the most “gluttonous” dishwashers will consume less. If you are one of those who save on everything, then models with a flow rate of 8 liters of water will be preferable for you. Most PMMs consume 10 liters per wash cycle;
  • programs. The main programs that are necessary for washing any dishes are: main wash, quick, for lightly soiled dishes, soaking or pre-washing, as well as intensive operation. This is a standard set of programs. All additional programs, such as hypoallergenic washing, fragile glass and others, will affect the price. Therefore, think well how often you are going to turn on the machine and what to wash, maybe you do not need such modes at all;
  • additional functions. Think carefully about whether you want to see a “beam on the floor,” various indicators and sensors. The Aquastop system of full protection against leaks can be useful, it is not worth saving on it. Although it is not a 100% guarantee against water leakage, it can save you from a flood, and therefore from potentially high repair costs.

For a small family, the half-load option will be very useful.

  • connection and accessories. When buying, be sure to see how the machine connects and whether there is everything for this. It is also possible that the drain and water hoses will be short and you will have to buy them separately;
  • type of drying. Free-standing machines have condensation drying. Turbo dryer, although more efficient, but such PMM with turbo dryer is currently not on sale;
  • design. These characteristics are subjective.You can choose what you like, especially since the market offers not only models in silver or classic white. There are even black dishwashers.

When choosing equipment, many buyers are interested in the quality of washing dishes. But this parameter cannot be evaluated in absentia. So that the kind sales assistant does not tell you, there are a lot of factors on which the cleanliness of the dishes will depend. And it may not be the car at all, but the detergent or the proper operation of the equipment. In this matter can helpcustomer reviews and own experience.
