Lost Opportunity..

I had both dishwashers going on Thursday, both with Bob Load worthy loads and I didn't take any pictures.  Damn!!  I had a lot going on and didn't really think of it until later in the day.  Well, at least the turkey looked good, LOL.

The same happened to me! Wouldn't be much fun though, since we recently moved and now are using my grandparent's old anemic Frigidaire. We ran two loads that night, and it actually does well, but has an issue with filtration because of the warped plastic filter and the very slow heating.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Mike: how many total loads did you eventually do that day?

I only did 2, that one and the dinner dishes and roasting pan. I did not take pictures either. There were 5 of us for dinner. I know some people say Bosch does not hold as much as a US brand, but I can stuff mine. One Finish Quantum Max pod, the Auto cycle and sanitize rinse and everything comes out spotless. I use the the third rack for silverware and never use the silverware basket. My cookware is Calphalon Professional and not dishwasher safe so had to hand wash it. but that was only 3 pots and one lid. everything else went in. my turkey was roasted in a Pyrex roasting pan the that fits perfectly where the silverware basket goes. The green beans and stuffing were baked right in their Phaltzgraff serving dishes and just got scraped and put in, no pre-rinsing.

Mike, I hadn't had a chance to comment yet, but reminds me of how I load my Bosch. And yes, I"m amazed at all I can get in there squeezed in. All comes out spotless with the same cycle options, but I genereally use my CrystalDry and have the machine default set for intensive dry. I love that I can make the choice to have the hottest water and the driest dish load, including plastics that no U.S. dishwasher will allow me to select all IIII want to select.

Bosch load size

I could stuff more in my Bosch compared to any other dishwasher I have owned or used, as well. I removed the cutlery basket from the first rack and it opens up loads of space. The Auto cycle is the shit! I couldn't imagine using Auto with Extra Scrub or Crystal Dry.

Lakewebsterkid what is your reason for not using Auto? I have had a Bosch for over 20 years and always used it. could put in burned on lasagna pan and never had to clean it up afterwards. When we had the KA Superba in my picture used normal or Soak/scrub with high temp wash/rinse and heated dry.

I believe LakeWebsterKid is saying that his Bosch Auto cycle gives excellent results without the need of Extra Scrub and/or additional drying options.

Thank you Glenn, confirmed I am Old.....LOL I always took Sh.t. as a negative word no matter how it's used. Knew people fired from Disney for using it. Not sure where extra scrub came from. I use the Sanitize because at first baby bottles, then Swine flu, then my son-inlaw cancer treatment, then Covid, now my cancer treatments. plus there is usually a lot of plastic containers, the higher heat makes them flash dry when it beeps and I open the door.

Mike, I did the same thing.  I put away the silverware basket and use the third rack for my silverware.  I love having that extra wide space in the lower rack for large bowls and things.  


BTW, my cycle of choice is Auto and Extra Dry.  Mine is before the Crystal Dry option.

Ralph, mine is about 6 years old SH8 series. I have Sanitize and Extra Shine as options. I just use Sanitize and Auto.

I thought Sanitize and Extra Shine just added heat--does Extra Shine double dose the rinse agent or something?

Extra Shine raises the final rinse temperature the same as Sanitize option (162 degrees F) as well as extends the drying time.

In Europe, the Siemens-branded dishwashers with Zeolite perform an extra rinse with some rinse aid when Extra Shine is selected.

This is a regular load (washed). Despite the casserole dish I fried chicken drumsticks in and the pot, the Auto Cycle chose light soil and reduced the time by an hour.
