According to Bosch, 38 percent of Americans feel the dishwasher is the noisiest product in their home. Bosch aims to reduce that number with its brand new line of dishwashers. Already well-known for quiet operation and incredible cleaning, Bosch has upped the ante with its new line claiming each dishwasher in the line will be quieter than any other similarly priced competitor.
To prove their claim, Bosch will publish sound ratings for each dishwasher in the line, which starts with the Ascenta Series at $549 and a sound rating of 50 decibels (dBA). The top of the line 800-Series Plus dishwashers rate at an incredible 39 dBA. To put that in perspective, the sound output doubles each time the decibel rating increases by three decibels. So the 800-Series Plus is almost four times quieter than the Ascenta series.
Features vary based on the series, but listed below are some common features in the Bosch dishwasher line that allow it to operate so quietly.
Three Level Insulation: Bosch blankets its dishwashers with three layers to dampen sound. The first is the stylish stainless steel wash tub. Second is a tar-like material called bitumen, which is baked onto the stainless tub. The third layer is a thick cotton blanket made of recycled jeans. Combined, these three layers do an outstanding job of absorbing sound and vibration created during the wash cycle.
Smart Spray Technology: Bosch divides the dishwasher into spray zones to aid in cleaning, efficiency and noise reduction. This ensures the spray will be focused on your dishes allowing Bosch dishwashers to clean effectively while using less water. In addition, focusing the spray on your dishes results in quieter clean because it doesn’t create additional sound by spraying against the stainless steel door and sides.
Disposal-Less Design: Many dishwashers include a noisy disposal that breaks down food particles in the dishwasher. Bosch has eliminated the disposal and replaced it with extremely high wash temperatures and a self-cleaning filter. The high heat wash breaks down food particles and disposes of them through the filter leaving your dishes ultra clean and 99.9 percent bacteria free.
Solid Molded Base: Bosch dishwashers feature a seamless, solid molded base and enhanced insulation to reduce vibration created during the wash cycle.
Brushless Motors: Bosch’s brushless dishwasher motors are virtually frictionless resulting in far less noise.
With its new line of dishwashers, Bosch has clearly continued to push the limits of engineering and design even further.
