Dishwasher Engineering

When looking at these two brands you are also comparing two different types of engineering.

Bosch is a German company. However, their main dishwasher factory is located in North Carolina.

GE is an American appliance company. Their main manufacturing facility is located in Louisville, Kentucky.

While GE Appliances is one oldest manufacturer of dependable dishwashers, Bosch is usually an industry leader in the areas of quietness and innovative features.

Heating Elements

When comparing the design of these two brands are as different as night and day in way that they clean and dry dishes.

A feature unique to Bosch dishwashers is the advanced in-line heater. This feature removes the need for an exposed heating element.

GE dishwashers also have an in-line water heater. However, a heating element is used to assist in the drying of dishes. This element also sanitizes and kills bacteria.

For drying, Bosch dishwashers rely on a system of condensation drying. Since a heating element is not needed, it provides savings on energy costs.

Quiet Dishwashers

Bosch leads the market in the quietness of their machines.

GE models use food grinders to dispose of large food particles. Bosch dishwashers use water filtration system instead.

While a grinder is great to have in a dishwasher, they do increase the sound levels a touch.

Cleaning Jets

In recent years, GE has introduced more than 104 jets to clean dishes at different angles.

Plus they added the Bottle Wash tines that get those hard to clean baby bottles cleaned and sanitized.

Also, GE’s introduction of dedicated silverware basket jets is a game changer.
