Bosch Dishwasher Review: SHPM78Z54N 800 Series 24 Inch Black Stainless Dishwasher

The SHPM78Z54N 800 Series 24 Inch Black Stainless Dishwasher features six different wash cycles to choose from. The PowerWash feature helps clean heavily soiled dishes and collects the food particles for easy disposal in your sink or garbage can after washing.

There are also LED lights everywhere, which makes it easier to see what you’re doing during the washing process. All six wash cycles are optimized to get your dishes clean without you having to pre-soak them first and this dishwasher meets all federal energy standards so that it will save on your utility bills as well.

The stainless steel interior is durable, which means that it won’t rust or tarnish over time as some other materials might do. It also features a QuickClean feature for those times when you’re in a hurry and need something cleaned quickly before guests arrive.

There’s an easy way to add more water during the middle of any cycle too; just use the Bosch Intuitive Water Level Sensor (IWS). If there’s not enough hot water available, take advantage of its EcoSilence Drive technology to make sure everything gets thoroughly cleaned.
