The Bosch 500 Series Dishwasher Is The Ultimate Dishwashing Companion!
This is a sponsored post by Best Buy
There are so many dishwasher brands and models out there that it becomes overwhelming to pick one..
I recently spent several hours at Best Buy choosing a dishwasher after I had spent hours online researching them. Years ago the biggest feature you could look for was energy efficiency, now there are tons of fun features you can find on dishwashers.
Most brands offer dishwashers from entry level to high-end. It’s up to you to choose which one will check all your boxes.
Before you buy a dishwasher, here are a few things to consider:
- What’s your budget for a dishwasher?
- What capacity will you need to do the fewest cycles per day for your family?
- Be sure to measure and make sure you know what size dishwasher will fit in your kitchen.
- What features are most important to you?
The list goes on, but these are the top points to consider when looking to buy a dishwasher.
24″ Compact Width Fits In Most Spaces
With the Bosch 500 Series Dishwasher, you have room for up to 16 place settings, 5 wash cycles, 5 options, and a concealed heating element.
In the above description, when I had kids at home a concealed heating element would have been fantastic. I can’t count the number of times I would smell burning plastic only to find the kids had loaded the dishwasher improperly and a spatula was now destroyed and melted to the heating element.
Although compact, the 500 Series offers several wash options to users. You won’t have to sacrifice the features it can offer with the size of this dishwasher.
Flexible 3rd Rack
We all have things in our kitchen that are either irregularly shaped, too long, too big, or just all of the above! In most cases, dishwashers won’t be able to accommodate these.
The flexible 3rd rack of the the Bosch 500 Series makes it possible for you to throw in these odd one out items to the dishwasher.
Adding the 3rd rack with its adjustable tines can create the right fit for deep, tall, or uniquely-shaped items.
I love this feature – you can lay the times down to fit those large items and make more room.
The EasyGlide™ feature of the 500 Series enables the racks to move smoothly whether it is full of dishes or not.
This feature is awesome, too. Sometimes I am man handling the shelves like I did with my old dishwasher but these shelves slide in and out so much smoother and easy.
44-dBA Noise Level Rating
The Bosch 500 Series features a 44-dBA noise level rating that makes it almost impossible for you to know if its turned on unless you check the exterior Infolight®.
This feature comes in very handy for people who stay in the kitchen or dining room area even after meal.
I LOVE this feature – I keep telling people: “Listen, do you hear that?” and they will say no, and I say “Neither do I! My dishwasher is ON!”, they are always amazed because it is silent – like I still can’t believe it. I have to check the light to know if it’s still running.
Fresh Air With The AutoAir™
Natural air is the freshest of all that not even electronic devices can replicate. This is why it is important that the dishes washed should be exposed to fresh air.
The AutoAir™ automatically opens the door at the end of the drying cycle to let moisture escape and fresh air circulate for better drying results. A little more fresh air equals a lot more dry compared to Bosch Dishwashers with PureDry technology.

The Bosch 500 Series dishwasher delivers a sparkling clean and dry with advanced PrecisionWash technology and AutoAir.
With PrecisionWash, intelligent sensors continually scan and check the progress of dishes throughout the cycle, and powerful spray arms target every item of every load, for the ultimate clean.
Ok, at the risk of a little embarrassment – I have to tell you: We had a pot that we only used to make tea in, stained by the tea. It went in the dishwasher almost every night, I had used steel wool on it and the stains remained.
My husband and I were totally taken aback when we pulled out that tea pan the first night to put away and the tea stains were 100% GONE – no lie. It completely shocked us! (Now my husband wants a new washer and dryer for fear our clothes are being washed like that tea pan was! lol)
The all-new AutoAir option (Compared to Bosch Dishwashers with PureDry) automatically releases the door at the end of the cycle to let moisture escape and fresh air in for drier dishes.
