Thermador and Bosch

MichelleDTJune 13, 2012

Looking at dishwashers today and the sales rep told me that the Bosch and Thermador are exactly the same other than branding. I was looking at the Bosch 800 Plus series. She also told me that Asko is a step above both of these and one step below Miele.

Is this true?

Yes, my understanding is that the top of the line Thermador is the same as the Bosch 800 plus.

I wouldn't personally agree with the order of the salesperson's depends on what you prioritize, but I would say Asko and Bosch are pretty neck and neck, with Bosch/Thermador maybe actually having a slight lead. Askos are sturdy, but they have some rough edges and they aren't quite as quiet as the highest end Bosch's. Top of the line Miele is probably better than top of the line Bosch, but not by a huge margin.

The exception to all of that is the lower end Bosch units, which are not great. At the low end, ranking Bosch below Asko and Asko below Miele is probably fair.
