Bosch Classixx SPS40C12GB Slimline Freestanding Dishwasher, White

Product information

The slimline Bosch SPS40C12GB is part of the Classixx range, boasting A-rated performance for washing and drying as well as an A+ energy efficiency rating, along with a 48dB noise level.

The SPS40C12GB hosts an ActiveWater hydraulic water system that ensures every single drop of water is used to its full potential, to provide you with maximum performance and minimum consumption. And after washing, this dishwasher uses a heat exchanger for hygienic and efficient drying.

Precision engineering has resulted in a ServoLock door on this unit, which allows the door to close virtually by itself and with minimum effort on your part. Alternating spray arms make sure your dishes are well cleaned, and there is even a DuoPower spray arm in the upper basket for truly thorough washing.

Lightly soiled crockery in the SPS40C12GB can be dealt with in just 30 minutes with the Quick Wash programme, and heavily soiled dishes are easily dealt with too thanks to an Intensive wash cycle. A smaller machine doesn’t mean lack of flexibility either, as with the SPS40C12GB you still get foldable plate racks in the lower basket, and an adjustable top basket.

There’s a large item spray head that can be utilised for getting your oven shelves or barbecue grill clean, and a 3, 6 or 9 hour delay timer so you can take advantage of any off-peak energy tariffs you might enjoy.

Bosch guarantees that if an appliance is discontinued, its major components will be available for at least 10 years afterwards in the event of a part needing replacement.
