KitchenAid Vs Bosch

With all due respect to the folks at Miele who manufacture undeniably a superior product, most dishwasher purchases under $1,000 seem to be between KitchenAid and Bosch

BTW, I am no way supporting these brands or any other brands on this blog. Its a more than casual observation. Personally, more people should look at JennAir, Miele or Maytag as well

So lets deal with the current reality:

KitchenAid: Your folks probably owned one in their home, and your family couldn"t beat it to death. KitchenAid has a commercial pedigree as it once was owned by Hobart. Of course it was purchased by Whirlpool almost 20 years. It still is a great machine with an evisserator(you read that right) at the bottom, which will grind small bones etc left on plates and tons of options even on the basic models.

Bosch: Bosch successfully rolled into the US about 15 years ago. They were the first with a stainless rather than a plastic tank and a heat boost for water to 161 degrees for cleanability. Consumers, however, purchased Bosch, because it was incredibly quiet.

Now how do you compare? Kitchen has more features, the dreaded evisserator(Bosch uses a filter) and on their better models a very useful 16 position upper rack. Bosch is a bit quieter and heats the water 10 degrees hotter.
