If you happen to mention to me that you are thinking about buying a new dishwasher, you might as well grab a chair and get comfortable, because I LOVE my dishwasher, and will happily tell you about it for hours on end. If you happen to come to my house for dinner, and help clear the table afterward (which I appreciate, thank you very much), I will do everything I can to discourage you from rinsing, and try to talk you into loading those plates and platters directly into the machine. Why do I do this? Because this thing gets everything clean. The dishes go in scary and come out sparkly.
Is it that Bosch builds an awesome dishwasher? Maybe. It certainly is quiet.
Is it that the dishwasher tabs I use have the extra built in powerball? Probably not.
The massive amounts of jet dry? Nah.
The precise chemical composition of Texas municipal water? I don't think so.
I think the reason I believe that my dishwasher is such a marvel of cleaning technology has nothing to do with the dishwasher itself,
