Review: Bosch Serie 6 SMV68MD01G Integrated Dishwasher

Guest blog by Rhiannon,

The Bosch SMV68MD01G PerfectDry dishwasher is brimming with all of the latest washer technology and special features!

The design of this dishwasher is second to none, it is fully integrated and, with the OpenAssist feature, you can open the dishwasher by simply touching the front of the unit. This partially opens the door, making it much easier to load and unload. It is perfectly designed for modern kitchens without handles as it will blend effortlessly into any kitchen. There are so many features with this amazing dishwasher!

The feature that really stands out is the innovative TimeLight feature, the remaining time and program status are clearly displayed on the floor in high resolution so you are aware your dishwasher is in operation – this slice of luxury is exclusive to Bosch Serie 800 and benchmark models.                                 

This dishwasher is also very convenient for large households thanks to the retractable VarioDrawer on the third loading level. The cutlery basket can be replaced by the VarioDrawer to create room for up to 14 place settings. The middle drawer can also be completely removed to fit in taller items ideal for family gatherings or, if you are wanting to clean your BBQ racks, this dishwasher will allow space for that! The VarioSpeed plus option allows you to wash and dry a full load of dishes in the shortest amount of time. Simply activate this option at the push of a button – again, great when hosting a family celebration or birthday parties.

The AquaSensor regulates the water usage depending on the type and degree of soiling, using the light beams to manage the rinse. At the end of a cycle, if there are any remaining food particles, grease or detergent residues, the cycle will be continued. Say hello to brilliantly clean dishes.

A new option that can be activated in many programmes is the amazing HygienePlus option. This guarantees maximum hygiene which is achieved by using 70’C temperature – perfect for people with high hygiene standards and households with small children or allergy sufferers.

The IntensiveZone option can also be added to many programmes. This great feature ensures a higher spraying pressure and increases the temperature in the lower basket. Heavily soiled pots and pans are then cleaned to optimum conditions whilst the more delicate dishes can be placed in the upper basket. With the time delay function, you can pre-select the programme for the desired start time, whether that is during the day, during work hours or at night.

The LoadSensor function helps save water and energy when you are washing fewer dishes. The sensors detect smaller loads and adjust the water level accordingly. The water hardness is also changed for glass protection as soft water causes glass corrosion.

Bosch have also developed the economical EcoSlienceDriveTM, this works without the brushes and it is ultra-silent. With top results guaranteed, the Bosch SMV68MD01G is perfect for those of you that have an open plan kitchen/lounge area.

Overall this dishwasher is exceptional, it has a 9.4* rating out of 10 and I can see why the reviews are so great as it is bursting with features. Many of these can be added to multiple programmes for a superior wash cycle and it is great for larger families or people who like the added luxury this dishwasher can provide. It is safe to say that this appliance will exceed anyone’s expectations!
