Bosch 800 Plus High-Efficiency Dishwasher

*UPDATE February, 2014* Bosch continues to innovate in the efficient dishwasher category with the 800 Series. The 800 Series line of dishwashers are on average about 11 percent MORE energy-efficient than EPA Energy Star requirements, meaning they will save upwards of 170 gallons of water per year (compared to the Energy Star minimum requirement.) Bosch 800 Series dishwashers use EcoSense technology, which reduces energy usages by 20%. The 800 Series also features a half-load option, reducing energy and water usage for smaller loads. Finally, a third flexible rack allows you to pack more dirty dishes in each load, further reducing energy and water usage.

We're always on the lookout for state of the art energy-efficient appliances here at Green Home Source. In the category of dishwashers, it's tough to find a model greener than the Bosch 800 Plus Series. Bosch's entire line of high quality dishwashers is known for their water- and energy-efficiency, but the 800 Plus goes above and beyond.

Bosch: Fine German Engineering

Bosch is synonymous with high-performance and precision engineering. For over 125 years, Bosch has been designing and making appliances that are beautiful, functional, quiet and efficient. Nowhere is Bosch's dedication to design and engineering more evident than in their top-of-the-line 800 Plus Dishwasher.

Energy Star Plus

Looking for the Energy Star label is the first step in choosing any new dishwasher. This is the sign that the model meets strict efficiency standards, and will be cheaper to operate than similar traditional models.

Energy Star is just a starting point, however. There's no stopping appliance manufacturers from designing products that exceed the Energy Star requirements. The Bosch 800 Plus dishwasher series does this, and then some.

In fact, the Bosch 800 Plus exceeds current Energy Star requirements for water usage by an astounding 125%. Using only around 2 gallons of water per cycle, the 800 Plus can save almost 500 gallons of water a year compared to a similar model that meets Energy Star requirements. Compare the 800 Plus to non-Energy Star models, and the water savings are even more impressive.

The Bosch 800 Plus also exceeds the Energy Star requirements for energy usage. The 800 Plus uses only 259 kWh/yr., exceeding the Energy Star requirement of 324 kWh/yr.

Bosch 800 Plus Series: Ultimate Performance, Ultimate Convenience

For anyone whose main concern is lowering energy and water usage, the Bosch 800 Plus Series is unsurpassed. The 800 Plus' efficiency alone makes it worthwhile, but Bosch offers so much more.
The 800 Plus Series of dishwashers also offers:
- Quiet performance: from 42 to 39 dBA (depending on model), the quietest in their class.

The Bosch 800 Plus dishwasher is available in several color and style options to match any kitchen's decor. While we consider the Bosch 800 Plus to be a 'green' dishwasher, its actual colors are better suited to a stylish kitchen. It is available in stainless steel, white, or black.

The 800 Plus is available with a recessed handle or the more traditional bar handle. For custom-designed kitchens, it is also available with a custom panel-ready front that disappears into your cabinetry.
