300 series dishwashers are spacious, they come with 16 place setting capacity, 3 loading rack offers more capacity which really gives you the perfect space to fit larger utensils.

One thing I like most about the 300 series dishwashers is the top 3rd rack in the basic model. It adds 30% more loading capacity. You can use this rack for silverware and small items.

Cleaning Performance

Bosch 300 series dishwashers do a wonderful job of cleaning in my opinion. they come with 5 Wash Cycles (1 Hour, Auto, Normal, Heavy, Rinse) and 4 Options (Extra dry, half load, Sanitation, Delay).

  • The heavy option did a wonderful job of cleaning in our test, cleans almost all hard stains from dishes.
  • The hour-long Speed60 cycle is decent, only work with normally soiled dishes.
  • The normal cycle performs decently but it takes more time to clean and dry dishes.

Cleaning Performance Rating: 9/10


Customers complained in the past about Bosch dishwasher’s drying performance. improved 300 series dishwashers dry well but it isn’t the best at drying plastic, leaves plastic dishes at least a little wet at the end of a cycle.

The 300 Series has an Extra Dry option, It raises the temperature and extends the drying time.

Drying Rating: 7/10


Bosch is known as the quietest dishwasher brand. This machine comes with 44 decimal ratings so it’s a super quiet dishwasher on the market. it has an info light that beams on the floor to indicate when it’s running.

Noise Rating: 9/10

This Bosch 300 series is great in cleaning, more space for dishes, and much quieter than previous models but they are expensive than its competitors.

One major complaint about Bosch dishwasher is that there is a fairly strong plastic smell after washing, we experience the same (not that strong) but it has gone away after 5 times of use.
