Is a Dishwasher worth buying for Indian cooking style. Review of Bosch Dishwasher SMS60L12IN - Demo & features

I was hesitant to buy dishwasher thinking it won't clean Indian Utensils properly because of the oil/spices we use while preparing Indian dishes. Then came a point where I needed to save some time that I could spend with my family. After thinking through one option was to free myself from washing dishes which takes a lot effort and time. After reading multiple reviews I decided to take up the risk of buying a dishwasher. I compared various brands available in market and finally decided to go with Bosch.

Now that I am using Bosch dishwasher SMS60L12IN from past few months, I thought of sharing my personal review. Bosch Dishwasher has many good features which makes it worth buying. It comes with 12 place settings and 6 wash program. It is best for small families. This dishwasher comes with 2 year warranty. It also offers 10 years of warranty on rust for inside tub. It comes with features like aqua sensor, load sensor, top shower, eco silence drive and etc.

They provide a sample finish all in one tablet and a small rinse aid with the package. A user manual is also provided by Bosh which clearly provides the steps to load the dishwasher and some do's and don'ts.

This dishwasher has 3 showers through which water is sprinkled over the utensils for cleaning. It has 2 adjustable racks. Top rack is for small utensils like glasses, cups, small plates, small bowls. Lower racks is for heavy utensils like cooker, frying pan, kadhai, big plates, big bowls etc. For loading the spoons and small items there is a separate cutlery basket provided, which needs to be placed in the lower rack.

Dishwasher has 3 separate slots to load dishwasher salt, dishwasher detergent, dishwasher rinse aid. It is better to use these 3 separately than using all in one tablets, for better results. This dishwasher cleans the utensils with hot water. The water used for cleaning is automatically heated inside the dishwasher. So we don't need to provide any separate inlet for hot water. Hence the wash is hygienic.

Modes in the dishwasher:

1. Quick mode- Cleans utensils in less time. This mode to be used if non oily, non greasy utensils are to be washed like glasses, cups, plates.

2. Vario Eco- It saves energy and time without compromising on wash results.

3. Express Sparkle- Cleans and dries in 59 min. For normally soiled dishes in mixed load.

4. Intensive Kadhai- Cleans heavy soiled dishes and cookware like kadhai, pots and pans. This mode performs intensive washing and drying cycles for optimal cleaning and drying results.

5. Extra Dry- This mode is used for intensified drying performance, especially beneficial for difficult to dry items, e.g. plastic.

6. Eco Silence - This mode is used for normally soiled dishes in mixed load with low energy consumption. This mode is quite, powerful, efficient and durable.

7. Auto Mode- Ensures automatically the best cleaning performance. This mode is sensor controlled for lightly to normal soiled dishes. This programme perfectly adjusts the water usage, water temperature and rinse time to perform an optimum wash. Dishes to be loaded in this mode are pots, plates, cups and glasses.

8. Half Load- This mode is ideal for less than full load. Saves time, water and electricity. If utensils are less then it is best to use this mode.

9. Prerinse- This mode can be used only to rinse the utensils if not washed immediately.


1. It offers Convenience to start dishwasher. You can Start at the desired time, with pre-select programme. With the time delay function you can pre-select the programme for the desired start time.
