Bosch SMS40E32EU Dishwasher review

Are you looking for Bosch SMS40E32EU Dishwasher? Read my hands-on review of Bosch SMS40E32EU Dishwasher, which is an excellent dishwasher with great build quality. Read my experience with this machine.

I am loner and used to do all my dishes after I return home. It was very hectic to clean dishes every day. I started looking at dishwasher from Bosch because of overwhelming customer reviews. I end up buying Bosch SMS40E32EU, here is my review.

Design and usability

Bosch SMS40E32EU is a 12 place setting dishwasher. It comes with white color. The racks are large, optimal for cleaning kadhais and pots. The front face is sleek and uncluttered. The face has a little red light indicator which glows when it's running. The dishwasher is too quiet; you might not hear it running unless you see the indicator. It has so much room that you can fit in all the vessels utilized by a family of 4 -5 members.

Bosch SMS40E32EU has a separate rack for small items like knives, spoon, etc. You can load a hell lot of dishes in this machine.


It uses a brushless motor which means power and silence. As I said, this machine is very silent and you can't even tell whether it is running or not without looking at the LED indicator. You can wash dishes with the four available options – normal, economy, quick wash and pre rinse. You can select any of the option depends on the dirt. There is a special option and you can choose it if you need to clean only two or three vessels.
Bosch SMS40E32EU has a filter to collect the food remains. You need to clean the filter by hand.

Cycle time

For normal – 2:00 h
For Economy – 1:45 h
For quick wash – 0:30 h
For pre rinse – 1:30 h

I used to wash my dishes at night and unload them in the morning. I usually choose the normal cycle as it isn't really an issue because this machine makes no noise. You can choose quick wash if you want to wait for the dishes right before the machine.


With normal cycle the glasses come out sparkles and utensils shines. It even cleaned the knife coated with Nutella (chocolate paste). You need to use special soap like Finish to use in this dishwasher. The dishes come out clean and spotless. I am happy with the results.

Pros and cons


  1. Makes no noise
  2. Got nice looks
  3. Washes great.
  4. Runtime is 2 hours which is normal in all dishwasher


No garbage grinder. Maybe they (BOSCH) have avoided this feature because garbage grinder motor makes noise.


I am extremely happy with my decision to buy this machine. It gives fantastic results. The features that are missing in this dishwasher are garbage grinder and dryer. I think there is no need for dryer if you wash at night and unload in the morning. This machine is good for a family of four members.

Hi, it seems to be a very useful home appliance and I was also looking for one. It would be more helpful if you can mention the price and also the types of vessels that it can wash. For example, does it clean stainless steel, enamelware and heavy utensils like pressure cookers and big tumblers ?

A great piece of utility indeed. However, I must say the article lacks in a few aspects that have gone unmentioned. For instance, it does not give complete details like the motor capacity and such technical specifications. The article would have felt complete if it had the details of the pricing and the availability on online stores. Given the fact that most of us rely on online shopping these days, such details would have been more helpful.
