Bosch Exxcel SPS53E12GB Slimline Dishwasher, White

Product information

The slimline Bosch SPS53E12GB boasts A-rated performance for washing and drying as well as an A+ energy efficiency rating, along with a 48dB noise level.

An ActiveWater hydraulic water system 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.

Lightly soiled crockery in the SPS53E12GB 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 70°C wash cycle.

A smaller machine doesn’t mean lack of flexibility either, as with the SPS53E12GB 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 delay timer that runs up to 24 hours - 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.

Q & As


Bosch Exxcel SPS53E12GB Slimline Dishwasher, White 4.9 5 14 14
As good as we had hoped Bought this to replace an older model which had lasted 11 years. Very pleased so far. It is very quiet when running and our dishes have never been cleaner. Option to reduce programme time is useful. 29 July 2014
excellent machine this is our second Bosch dishwasher the first one was very good, but this one is even better a lot quieter and much more efficient with water use 28 May 2014
Great dishwasher Just got this machine and I am still getting used to it. I am still getting used to how quiet it is, how clean things are and how easy it is to use! 27 May 2014
Great little machine This slimline dishwasher is just perfect. It's so quiet, only uses 9 litres of water, great when you're on a water meter, the layout is very well designed, really pleased with this purchase. 10 May 2014
Excellent product Only just got this new dishwasher. Had the previous model for 20 yrs. This one is much much quieter with more functions - that do take a bit of getting used to. Still it has more capacity than the old one and saves standing at the sink washing up after every meal. What's not to like 24 April 2014
Excellent for a novice Never had a dishwasher before but this one is a good one to start with. Good instructions and easy to use. The quick programme has been washing a less than full load very well. 11 March 2014
excellent Very happy with this product. I had it for almost 10 months now. Fits well in my kitchen,I would recommend it to any one. Very silent, excellent washes and drying performance. I did not have enough space in my kitchen for a large dishwasher. I was very happy to find a slimline that would be as efficient as the large ones. Thank you JL. 18 March 2013
Really Efficient Machine This is my first Bosch Dishwasher, but my third slimline machine and this is by far the most efficient one I have had, I had thought that maybe slimline machines where not as good as a full size but I have been proved wrong by this one I had no idea my dishes could be so clean ! I would recommend Bosch to anyone. 15 January 2013
