Bosch SMS40A08GB Dishwasher, Stainless Steel

Product information

Please note: This product is not available in our shops for viewing. However, you can still place your order in store.

Boasting an impressive A+ energy rating, the stainless steel finished Bosch SMS40A08GB dishwasher will be at home in any kitchen.

Rackmatic top basket allows you to adjust the height of the top basket. There are also 4 foldable racks and shelves integrated into the dishwasher.

The inclusion of Aquamix technology softens the water used, for increased glass protection, and Bosch’s ActiveWater hydraulic system ensures that every single drop of water is used to the maximum. The SMS40A08GB has the capacity to wash up to 12 place settings.

Included in the 4 programmes are a 70°C intensive cycle to cut through grease and clean heavily soiled pots and pans and, for more speed, a dedicated 45ºC quick wash. It runs extremely quietly at just 48dB and features a time delay, so you can set it to run when energy costs are cheaper.

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.

Bosch SMS40A08GB Dishwasher, Stainless Steel 4.3 5 20 20
Quality Dishwasher Replaced our integrated dishwasher and have found the Bosch product to be an improvement. Quiet and effective cleaning on ECO and Intensive settings. Roomy interior i.e. lots of space. Classy appearance (Stainless Steel). All in all very pleased with our purchase. Appreciated the Dishwasher Tablets! 20 July 2014
Great dishwasher This is a good dishwasher, performs well and is quiet! Bosch are good, this is my third dishwasher from Bosch, the previous two performed well for many years. This stainless steel model looks good too! 29 May 2014
A well made and efficient machine at a keen price. After a few days sorting out the best programmes for our needs we are very pleased with firstly the capacity and secondly the performance of this appliance. We find the 'speed perfect' setting suitable for most of our needs but the Eco setting, although quite lengthy produced good results. All in all a great buy! 11 March 2014
cheap and nasty, plasticy and flimsy I bought my last dishwasher from John Lewis 11 years ago and it finally gave up the ghost due to limescale issues but was a terrific machine. So I bought this bosch one. I got the silver edition because I have the silver edition version of the bosch washing machine, but they look nothing alike in colour or surface, so disappointingly I have two very different machines next to each other, both called "Silver edition". The stainless steel front door of this dishwasher is very flimsy and "pops" in and out with a slight push. I dented it with my thumb just pushing it back into the hole under the counter top. Granted its much cheaper than my last one but I think I've wasted money by buying cheap. Its at least twice the noise as my old one and very audible in the lounge from the kitchen. the supplied inlet hose was so inflexible I had to go to homebase and buy another on order for it to reach around to the plumbing. The controls on the door are equally cheap and flimsy. Its a real shame bosch have produced something this poor. next time I will go in-store so I can feel the quality of the build/finish. I'd suggest you steer clear if you think you're getting normal bosch quality. 05 November 2013
Not the usual John Lewis experience Short wash - useless, not sure why it's there. Flimsy build compared to other machines i have owned. No funnel for salt refills. And if your appliance sticks out a couple of inches and you have small children, then there's a hole they could easily get their fingers in. Could have been finished better. Installation instructions were appalling. So overall not impressed. It is quite quiet though! 18 July 2013
Good buy This is our 3rd Bosch dishwasher in 23 years so as you can see they have lasted well. We have had this one now for 3 weeks and are pleased with its functions. But,I did keep the bottom rack of my old one as it held more plates and the cutlery basket slid along so that it gave more room for them. Took me awhile to get used to the different cycles but as another reviewer said it is actually 8 programmes which is very helpful. I put a lemon dishwasher freshener in and the smell soon went. All in all very pleased. 02 May 2013
Great dishwasher This arrived just in time for all our Christmas gatherings and was well worth spending a bit more on a good quality dishwasher. It cleans really well, even when dirt is a bit dried on. Glasses come out streak free and shiny. Good features are the 4 different cycles, each with an express mode vs economical mode, so effectively 8 cycles. You can delay up to 24 hours in 1 hour increments and the countdown screen proved very handy when I needed to run it 3 times in one day as we were preparing fancy meals for guests! The dishwasher is very stylish and matches the increasing number of silver appliances in my kitchen. The top drawer is height adjustable - I wish I'd realised before handwashing my wine glasses when I thought they wouldn't fit in. On the other hand there was a strong plasticky smell from the dishwasher, although didn't affect the taste of food, as some have reported, and lasted a only few days. I find it hard to fit some items in - bowls and larger glasses, despite the number of adjustable pieces the fixed spokes are a bit limiting. Plastics need to be hand-dried. Overall, I'm really happy with my purchase. 15 January 2013
Excellent purchase We bought this after the last one packed in after 2 years. This is an excellent buy and was really useful the other day when we had 17 for dinner. With careful stacking all the dishes were stacked and washed in 30 minutes. 31 December 2012
