Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Please consult a sales associate about delivery options.

Bad quality for such an expensive brand

Submitted by Verghs - 8/27/2021

Very dissatisfied with the product. The quality of the material is extremely poor and is just one medium strength pull away from it coming apart. The look of the product is also cheap. It is like an eyesore in the kitchen. We had a kitchen aid prior to this and it was so much better from a look and quality of material inside and outside. The one pro is I guess Bosch does a decent job of cleaning. We bought bosch after reading about its history of great quality. But I'm extremely disappointed with what we got. We also got the smart wifi version but that is just completely unusable. Firstly, they don't have an app of their own. They partner with home connect, but you can't even set a daily schedule for a wash!! Whats the point of having remote connect then? All in all, I am completely dissatisfied with my Buy

Great dishwasher

Submitted by Michael D - 5/30/2021

This dishwasher works mostly great and there are very few things that could be improved. The internal space is flexible to allow many kinds of loads. It's so quiet, one never has to think about when to run it. It dries decently (no dishwasher dries well, especially plastic). The app connectivity is a fun toy but unnecessary. You have to follow instructions precisely so that you get the most out of it, like with many machines these days.

Great - as long as you use the Heavy Wash setting

Submitted by Lisa - 1/23/2021

Very quiet dishwasher which is a nice change from my old one. I've found that the regular wash setting doesn't clean well enough. If you use the Heavy Wash setting (which is actually 15 minutes shorter), it's great!

Excellent cleaning performance. Drying with crystal dry option is good, even for plasticware. Front display is really useful in monitoring the wash cycle info, given it's super quiet operation.

It is quiet and cleans well. Impossible to use.

Submitted by Keith - 12/18/2020

I do not recommend this dishwasher. I bought it becuase I liked a prior Bosch dishwasher for being very quiet. This is a very quiet dishwasher. However, it is horribly cumbersome and difficult to use this appliance. Examples: It has remote, but you cannot use it becuase it only lasts until the door is open. There are numerous other interface/usability problems that I experience each day. It only dries the dishes if you select the exact right combinatipon of AUTO, DRY, and SANITIZE. The control buttons are nearly impossible to press accurately. They require perfect timing to select and reslease without either boouncing or not selecting. A horrid design. The list of inconveniences are endless. Inside, the dishwasher is well designed and it cleans well and dries poorly unless you use the special settings. I would not again ever make this trade-off of usability versus expensive and quiet.

Great dishwasher, love the features

Submitted by CraigW - 7/1/2020

This dishwasher has been great so far, getting dishes spotless and allowing us to segregate plates, pots and pans, bowls, and silverware appropriately. We were not sure how we'd like the third tray for silverware and flat items, but it is now one of our favorite features. That also frees up the bottom rack (no need for a silverware basket) for large pots and pans without giving up all the space for plates. We like the combination of controls on the top of the door (also new to us) but a minimalist display on the front as well. The dispensing features for soap and rinse are excellent.

Surpassed expectations

Submitted by Rocky Ridge - 6/17/2020

The Bosch 800 Series dishwashers are widely known as excellant machines. Not only has it not been a disappointment; it far exceeded our expectations. It is as quiet as could be. The racks are thoughtfully designed. The controls are completely intuative. Crystal Dry is remarkable. Dishes are not only squeaky clean, they are almost always fully dried. The connected app is a great addition. It will be a consideration on other appliances in the future.

Great performance

Submitted by Jeff B - 6/10/2020

We needed to upgrade dishwashers and this unit works well. My wife is a big "wash before you wash" type and this unit does a pretty good job. A few items once in a while but far better than what we had.

Not worth it

This dishwasher doesn't clean any better than my old one which was one third the price. And the Crystal Dry technology does get things a bit dryer, but my coffe cups and plastics still have water ollected on them. It's an ok dishwasher. Not worth he price tho.

Bosch 800 Series SHEM78ZH5N

Submitted by Joseph - 4/21/2020

I have had several other Bosch Dishwashers prior to this model. (The others had mechanical issues.) I am hoping this higher end model lasts longer. So far everything is working fine and this model is the quietest of all the models I previously owned. The hidden controls are very easy to navigate and the front display is very intuitive and virtually unnoticeable. Looking forward to many years of uninterrupted use!

My best Dishwasher yet

Submitted by Richard - 4/15/2020

I have had many top-end dihwashers - the last of which was another Bosch bought 19 years ago. It was amazing and almost silent, but even some Bosch things eventually break (a controlk module in thi case). After 19 years of flawless service, with the advice of Consumer Reports, I decided that replacing rather than repairing would be appropriate. This new maching now puts my old wonderful one to shame, and I can see the controls on the outside of the door, which I prefer. I'm extremely pleased and it is virtually silent too. The additional top silverware rack is an addedconvenience as are the additional cycles. Dishes finish SPARLING CLEAN and DRY!

Submitted by sfmng - 4/7/2020

Dishwasher cleans dishes very well and Crystal Dry dries everything, even the plastic items. It is slightly louder than I thought it would be but still very quiet overall. The interior layout is very flexible and can be configured to hold many different items of all shapes and sizes. Very satisfied with my purchase.

High quality product

Submitted by Cooper - 4/6/2020

This is a high quality product. Very quiet while running. Dishes are very clean. It does take about 2 hours to run a cycle, which seems a little longer than other machines. Dishes are dry at the end of the cycle.

Submitted by Eggie - 3/28/2020

We love our new Bosch. It is quiet and does a great job of cleaning and drying dishes. The Crystal Dry option is excellent and eliminates the need to dry palstics or those drops that remain on wine glasses. We also really like the ability to control it via the app. It is a great buy and we highly recommend it

the dishwasher of my dreams. Plates and cups are perfectly clean and shiny. I don't have to clean and wash them before putting in the machine. No noisy. Sometimes I don't realize it's working. And the cool thing: I can see the work in my iphone and order to start from it. And in my iphone I receive the warning that I the rinse is low, or that there is some trouble with the function that I have to check. To say that I'm satisfy is the less that I can say.

I bought this Bosch 800 series in December and could not be happier. It gets my dishes squeaky clean with no spotty dishes! In addition, this machine is by far the quietest running appliance I have ever owned. The racks inside are adjustable to many positions which allows for many different sizes of dishes, trays, glasses and pots. I would definitely recommend and would buy again! Five Stars to BOSCH!

Submitted by Depshrink - 12/22/2019

This dishwasher is the "cream of the crop" of dishwashers. It has all the features that I was looking for: Highly reliable, quiet, Three trays, Amazon Alexa compatible, Hidden controls, and a front display that shows the status of the wash cycle. Looks great too. If you are looking for a great dishwasher, look no further. This is the one.
