Bosch SMS40C12GB Dishwasher, White

Special offer

Product information

With an A+ in energy rating, and two A ratings for washing and drying, the Bosch SMS40C12GB dishwasher will be welcomed into any home.

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 tamperproof controls ensure washes are not interrupted by curious hands!

Thanks to the ActiveWater hydraulic water system, this dishwasher uses 12 litres of water per wash, and every single drop is used to the maximum. The SMS40C12GB has a 70°C intensive cycle to cut through and clean heavily soiled pots and pans, and if you are looking for more speed, a dedicated 45ºC quick wash will clean lightly soiled items in just 29 minutes.

The Bosch SMS40C12GB runs extremely quietly at just 48dB and features a 1-to-24-hour time delay option, so you can set it to run during lower energy tariff times. And when running at night, the integration of internal anti-flood technology gives you extra peace of mind, automatically cutting off the water supply if leakage or flooding occurs.

The upper basket is height-adjustable, even when fully loaded, and the SMS40C12GB features a removable Vario basket as a more flexible alternative to a cutlery basket, allowing you to effortlessly unload cutlery. With 3 different loading heights thanks to the Rackmatic height-adjustable top basket, and 4 foldable racks and shelves throughout the machine, a large variety of dishes can easily be accommodated. This appliance also includes a large item spray head that can be utilised for getting your oven shelves or barbecue grill clean.

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

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by No more washing up A very good machine, does a short wash in under 30 minutes which is very useful and the one I use most. It is very quite and easy to operate. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased with the dishwasher so far though haven't tried the spray head yet. Delivery was excellent. The driver texted me ETA in a good time. Overall the service was excellent. 24 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bosch dishwasher The cutlery basket has one compartment with a low division - why? Nothing stands upright in it. The top knife rack only lifts a short way. It would be more convenient if it lifted up to 90degrees 09 June 2015

The delivery and service from John Lewis was excellent. 17 April 2015
