Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, quiet dishwasher!We love this dishwasher. The capacity is greatly improved since our previous Bosch, with the utensil rack on top. It is sooo quiet, which we love. It's great to have so many setting options, including a quick rinse when you don't need to do a full clean but want to put dirty dishes away and out of sight. One thing we've found is that the silverware doesn't always get clean if we stack it in all the slots, same with plates on the bottom, it can be too tightly slotted. We love the light on the inside too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DisappointedI bought this dishwasher because I wanted a really quiet appliance. On that front I am very happy - this machine is virtually noiseless. However there there are several issues that make me regret buying this Bosch appliance. The first is the loading capacity is surprisingly limited. It is very difficult to stack pots or large bowls on top of plates, for example. I ended up removing the third rack at the top to open up the space and that helped some. A second space issue is the silverware rack has quite small compartments so al the silverware is squished together and doesn't get clean (especially knives with peanut butter). And there is always an odor like humid rubber in the appliance despite trying a disinfectant agent. I would not buy this machine again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS DISHWASHER!We had this installed a month ago. The only way you can tell if it is running, is by the light on the bottom of it. It is SO quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient and quiet dishwasher!We did a lot of research and found that many people from all walks of life pointed to the Bosch brand. After narrowing down the models, we decided on the SHX8PT55UC. At last, it was ordered, installed and put to good use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shhh - You'll Disturb the Dishwasher!But it won't disturb you! We bought our Bosch dishwasher when we moved into our new home. We knew it would be quiet - but this quiet? It's in the kitchen/family room and we can run it without even knowing it's on while using the family room all evening. Nothing else compares - at any price! Cleans perfectly, fits all the dinner dishes - prep and table - could not be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 3rd rack!We have only had the washer for one week, but already I am more excited about this major appliance than any other appliance I have ever had. We practically had to put our ear to the washer door to hear it. Also, the ingenious use of the 3rd rack and the adjustable 2nd and 3rd rack are great when I have cookie sheets and other awkward utensils and pans. My husband and I don't generate too many dirty dishes so I am especially excited about the "Half load" option. I love this efficiency. Now I don't feel so wasteful when I wash partial loads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiestest dishwasher ever!LOVE this dishwasher!! It cleans dishes superable. It is so quiet you don't know it is running. Only thing I wish it would do better, is dry the water off the top of mugs..
