Clash Of Appliances – Which Dishwasher is better?

Bosch 300 Series (Model – SHEM63W55N) VS KitchenAid (Model – KDTM354ESS)

Have you ever asked yourself which are the best home appliances out there and what makes them the best? To help you answer that question we decided to make the research for you and compare some of the best brands in the market. To determine the best appliance we take into consideration their design, innovations, efficiency, price, and customer reviews. For our first of many articles on which model is the best, we are going to look into two amazing dishwashers of 2020: the Bosch – 300 Series (Model – SHEM63W55N) and the KitchenAid (Model – KDTM354ESS). We decided to start with these two dishwashers because they come with some great innovations that will surely interest you. Now, without further ado, let’s compare the design of these two innovative dishwashers.

Who has the best design?

The Bosch SHEM63W55N and KitchenAid KDTM354ESS dishwashers are very similar in dimension. They both have a height of about 34 inches, a width of 23 inches, and a depth of 24 inches. They are very easy to install and can fit in any kitchen. Taking these similarities apart, the Bosch and KitchenAid dishwashers are very different, especially in design.

The Bosch SHEM63W55N is a recessed handle dishwasher with an interior remodeled for convenience. It holds three racks, two at the bottom and one V-shaped rack at the top. The top rack V-shaped rack is designed to hold silverware of all shapes and offers you more space at the bottom for more dishes. In addition to that, the middle rack is adjustable; you can raise or lower it to create more space on the lowest rack for bigger plates or pots.  The designers of the Bosch SHEM63W55N had in mind to simplify the life of the homeowner by taking away the trouble people face with little space in dishwashers and they achieved that successfully.

KitchenAid on the other hand bet on other assets, more technological than physical. Nonetheless, the designers of the KitchenAid KDTM354ESS also tried to create more space in the appliance. The KitchenAid KDTM354ESS holds multiple adjustable tines and utility baskets that help to create space and that make the arrangement of dishes and utensils easier.  Some of the adjustable tines like those located at the back of the rack help to get water into difficultly accessible parts of the washer.  There are an additional two fold-down cup shelves with a stemware holder where you can place your glasses and free space for other items. 

On Which Dishwasher Is The Best Cleaning Innovations?

When big brands such as KitchenAid and Bosch decide to produce a new model, they work hard on developing and introducing innovative technologies. In this aspect, KitchenAid and Bosch came up with very interesting ideas, some of which are very similar to each other.

One of the most innovative features you will find in the KitchenAid KDTM354ESS is its Pro Wash Cycle technology which automatically regulates the washing cycles of your appliance depending on how dirty the dishes are. This function is enabled by a sensitive sensor that detects the soil level of your dishes and adjusts the cleaning cycle accordingly. This feature works hand-in-hand with another great innovation that you will only find in the KitchenAid KDTM354ESS: The clean water wash system.  The clean water wash system is an innovation that helps to filter the water used by your appliance to clean your dishes. It gets rid of all the undesired particles and provides crystal clear water for your dishes.  As the KitchenAid ad says-“Clean dishes start with clean water”.  Finally, if you choose to get a KitchenAid KDTM354ESS, you will enjoy its pro dry system. This feature will help get your dishes perfectly dry in no time. KitchenAid did a wonderful job to innovate the washing cycle of the dryer from the quality of the water to the efficiency of the cleaning.

As in the KitchenAid dishwasher, the Bosch SHEM63W55N has an innovative sensor wash system that detects the level of soil in your dishes and adapts the temperature and washing time of the appliance accordingly. The Bosch SHEM63W55N also comes with an anti-leak system: the 24/7 AquaStop®. This feature detects water that leaks at the base of your appliance and shuts down the dishwasher in order to pump the water out. Finally, the last but not the least innovative feature of the Bosch dishwasher:  The Bosch Speed60® technology and its extra dry function will help you get your dishes clean and dry quickly.  

Both KitchenAid and Bosch did an incredible job adding features to their appliances to increase their cleaning efficiency. Nonetheless, we have a little preference for the KitchenAid dishwasher with its new clean water wash system and its pro-wash cycle technology that greatly increases the cleaning qualities of the appliance. 

Which Appliance Is More Energy Efficiency?

Energy Efficiency is one of the most important factors to take into account when purchasing any home appliance. Appliance with high energy efficiency will help you save a lot of money on energy bills, appliance maintenance, and repair. Appliances are rated from CEE Tier one to CEE tier 4, the higher the rating the more efficient your appliance is. However, the highest rating is not CEE tier 4 but CEE advanced.  In this regard, KitchenAid and Bosch score the same. They are both Energy Star Certified appliances with a rating of “CEE Tier 1” which is not a negligible rating. So, when comparing energy efficiency, KitchenAid, and Bosch tie.
