Bosch vs KitchenAid

This is perhaps the most competitive segment outside laundry with two very good, marquee brands.

Bosch....starting at $499 after rebates. USP (unique selling proposition): Quiet, water and energy efficient.

KitchenAid: Fairly quiet, eviscerator (fancy term for grinder) and heated dry.

I like Bosch's efficiency and KitchenAid's grinder (although Bosch's mesh filter is more than adequate). Heated dry uses way too much energy and is only 1.4% more efficient.

    so what else is new?? I have had Bosch for last 10 years of so. Filter has never been a problem, have almost never found anything in it not has lack of separate dry cycle been an issue- I just leave the dishes in for an hour or so after it is done and they dry by themselves. I do not want the noise of the grinder in Kitchenaid.

    No comparison. I got the top of the line KitchenAid in my last house and uninstalled it for the Bosch. In my current house, I got another Bosch. Great dishwasher.
