Rated an A+ for energy, the Bosch SMI50C05GB semi-integrated dishwasher recommends itself to those looking for an appliance that offers a high level of performance for smaller running costs.

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. A child lock protects from scalding, and when the wash is complete, an acoustic end of cycle indicator lets you know.

The SMI50C05GB features a height adjustable top basket  when empty, and 2 plate racks in the bottom basket are foldable. There's also a cutlery basket, increasing the capacity of this Bosch dishwasher for larger items.

The integration of an Aquastop anti-flood device gives you extra peace of mind when running at night, as it automatically cuts off the water supply in case of leakage or flooding. An ActiveWater hydraulics system ensures that every single drop of water is used to maximum efficiency, giving you a more efficient wash while using less water.

The handy timer delay function, combined with the quiet running of the SMI50C05GB, means you can set this machine to run whenever you like. And being semi-integrated, this unit can blend into your kitchen unobtrusively.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Shoddy incomplete piece of kit . Great looking dishwasher - works fairly well, but it is spoilt by details; the machine is lacking the the long knife holder, the cup rack / wine glass holder etc. that for this price you'd expect from Bosch and John Lewis. We have had to spend a month chasing about trying to get these parts from Bosch after sales spares - and cough up an extra £38 - yet the cheaper stand alone dishwasher and the fully integrated dishwasher with the exact same upper basket both come with these parts as standard. Shoddy and unjustified - since the best anyone has come up to explain the absence of the parts is keeping the costs down - which is patently not true, since the cheaper model comes with the parts anyway. Won't be buying Bosch again in a hurry- their after-care is negligible despite prating about its dependability - and John Lewis should be wary of stocking pricey items that don't live up to reasonable expectations. 19 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dishwasher : time saver extrodonier! You can't get better than a Bosch,looks good easy to use and quiet. Timer function is fantastic,leave it running overnight and he presto it's all done in the morning. Plates have no marksand glasses get crystal clear. filters are easily cleaned. The semi integrated model blends well into my kitchen....everyone should have one. Just one final word to them German Engineers..can they come up with a function that puts it all up as well....! 04 February 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by A very bad buy I have had this dishwasher since February. It has had problems since installation. Bosch have been out to mend it on 2 separate occasions and it still does not work. I am now awaiting parts and a further visit... The problem is apparently with the door not staying closed and thus the dishwasher timer 'sticks' during the cycle. Thus it cannot be left safely as it overheats and continues to go round the cycle over and over again. Bosch are aware of this problem and conveniently blame the installers - in my case by John Lewis. Not even worth 1 star 09 August 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Description not clear on website I bought this to replace 15 year old Bosch similar. This one does not have 'flaps' on the top basket to rest long stemmed glasses against or put big knives/utensils on. The description on the website does not make this clear and does not show a picture of inside. I called in at a JL store today and despite it saying it was not available in store, there it was. Apparently I was not the 1st person to complain about lack of 'flaps'. Every other dishwasher model has them including all Bosch. Beware if you often drink wine! 18 May 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Apallingly bad performance Like a previous reviewer I rarely have more than 30% of loads cleaned and the remainder either have to be rewashed or I have to keep the programme at the 2hr 45 minute option which renders the remainder useless. Despite washing items beforehand the arms constantly need removing and rinsing out. I've had an engineer out and he said this was a "feature" of these Bosch machines. His suggestion was to only ever fill half full and run on the extensive cycle. Not what I expected when I bought this. Not impressed with Bosch - most certainly won't buy anothjer product. 10 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent purchase Really pleased with this dishwasher. It has a large capacity and is very quiet in comparison to my previous machine. The speed perfect option, which brings the programme down to 1 hour 25 minutes, still gives excellent results. 12 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased This replaced our ageing dishwasher and after a month in use we are really pleased with it. Everything comes out sparkling and the 'time left' display and indicator showing when rinse aid etc needs putting in is really useful. It is also fairly quiet - we have an open plan kitchen so are often in it when it's on. The John Lewis delivery men fitted it for us and as usual were very professional and helpful. They talked me through how it worked and made everything very easy. Would definitely recommend both the product and the John Lewis service. 28 September 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed Following the demise of our previous dishwasher we were advised by our plumber to go for Bosch. As per previous reviewers comments this is a really quiet model, however, I am regularly disappointed by its performance. Food regularly blocks the spray arms which are hard to empty, I would estimate that 1 out of the 3 washes require items to be rewashed. This was not the case with my cheap previous model bought from Howdens Considering the price I expect more, I understand from another supplier that Bosch have some products manufactured in Spain. I will be going with Neff or AEG in the future 20 September 2012
