Bosch 800 Plus Series SHE8PT55UC Dishwasher Review

When shopping for a dishwasher, one must focus on certain features such as washing performance and capacity. Today we are going to talk about a dishwasher designed for large households. Bosch 800 Plus Series SHE8PT55UC Dishwasher has a 16 place settings capacity and a very efficient loading space. It is also very quiet and easy to use.

  • Main features

Bosch is considered to be the quietest dishwasher brand on the market and the Bosch 800 Plus Series SHE8PT55UC Dishwasher makes no exception as it only emits 40 dB which is about 15 dB quieter than similar models on the market. The flexible 3d rack is one of the most interesting features of this dishwasher as it allows you to customize the dish storing space according to your needs. The manufacturers recommend using this dishwasher along with the Bosch water softener which removes water spots resulting from lime deposits. The list of interesting features also includes an AquaStop Leak Protection, a self-latching door, a sanitizing option, and a half load option.

  • Performance

Bosch 800 Plus Series SHE8PT55UC Dishwasher is very efficient, especially when it is used along with the water softener which greatly improves the dishwashing performance. This dishwasher has 6 programs and 5 options. The dishwasher can work with powder or gel detergents, but it has a detergent tray optimized for tablets. A water spray jet is directed towards the tablet in order to minimize spraying the appliance’s door. It also features a load size sensor that adjusts the water temperature according to the individual needs of each dish load. When you are in a hurry, you can use the SpeedPerfect option which reduces the normal washing time without affecting the dishwashing performance.

  • Energy Ratings

This dishwasher is ENERGY STAR qualified and it consumes about 259 kWh/yr. The 24-hour delay start timer can also be used in order to save money by programming the dishwasher to start at the time of the day when energy is cheapest. It also has a half load option which uses less water and energy when the dishwasher is only half full.

  • Capacity

Bosch SHE8PT55UC Dishwasher is designed for medium-large households. It has a big capacity of 16 place settings. The dish storing space is adjustable and easy to use. The interior is illuminated by white light, thus making it easy to load even in low light conditions. The dishwasher features a flexible 3rd rack with movable sides which allows the user to load even deeper items such as measuring cups or ramekins. The adjustable tines can easily be lowered in order to fit even dishes with weird shapes. The extra-tall stemware can easily be accommodated in the middle rack due to the unique V-shape of the 3rd rack. In fact, the flexible 3rd rack offers 30% more loading capacity than a normal dishwasher with only two racks.

  • Design

The SHE8PT55UC Dishwasher has a very modern stainless steel design. It features a full-color high definition TFT display, which features big and easy-to-read texts. The cycle status information is also more detailed than it is with older models and so is the maintenance information.


DESIGN – 75%
NOISE – 90%



We like this dishwasher because it is very quiet, efficient, and easy to use. The 3rd rack is very well designed and it greatly increases the loading space.
