Bosch SHE68R55UC 800 Series 24" Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher
As a company that stakes so much of its reputation on the performance of its dishwashers, Bosch can't afford to make all their models anything but stellar. This includes one of their lowest-priced models, the SHE3AR55UC, which surprisingly can be found for under $500. This dishwasher offers class-leading quiet performance at just 50 decibels, as well as a good-sized tub that accommodates 14 place settings. It also includes high-end touches including a self-latching door that eliminates the need to give it an extra push to snap the unit shut all the way.
There's a choice of four wash cycles, and features including basics such as delay start and a sanitize option. Though this dishwasher has been reported by users to be a bit weak when it comes to the drying cycle, everything else works reliably and very efficiently. If you're looking to give Bosch a try while staying within a budget, the SHE3AR55UC is undoubtedly one of the best budget dishwasher options out there.
