I have had many dishwashers in the past that were absolute crap.  Went to a Bosch about 5 years ago and finally, a dishwasher that works flawlessly, has a light that shines on the floor to let you know it's running (it's that quiet) and zero issues.  I've had customers install them since getting mine and about 20 to date, all extremely pleased and would never by any other brand.

Thanks.  I'm looking and consumer reports says a certain Bosch model outperforms others at twice the price.  Pm me with the exact model you like if you don't mind.

in general...

seems as though "durable" goods have a much shorter lifespan than they used to

and the new refrigerators with the eco-friendly refrigerant don't last... so, the whole appliance ends up in the dump instead of polluting the air.... go figure

 

I've had 2 dishwashers in the last 25 years. First one lasted 6 years. 2nd one... 13 years and I'm still married to her

Bosch dishwashers:emotion-21:  the Nazi dishwasher.

Back in the day had dinner with the neighbors one night. After dinner we were at the kitchen nook table playing cards. Don't recall how the conversation got started but Larry(the neighbor) says doncha hear it it running right now. I said hear what. He says the Nazi dishwasher. I was amazed how quiet it was, I was sold. When I built I insisted on a Bosch. Controls inside out of sight and the cute little light(LED I presume) shinning on the floor when running.

We've had 40s today and lots of rain after three beautiful cloudless days and 71 once.

Sprouts? Think these are daffodils.

Their oxygen sensors cost twice as much as the gm ones for my 9C1 and threw a code to boot!

Lucky I found that out at their forums before I replaced mine. The great Dal Slabaugh at a dealer in OH got me everything I needed for that big cockaroacha rocket!

Chuck, good to see Jake in you new icon, but if possible, do you have a photo of Jake and LF that you could use instead?

Richie wanted me to ask since he is usually the creepy one.

Glad I stopped in if only to read this near slanderous comment. What was so creepy about my post earlier this morning?

- that like ‘Heel the wife and I got our first vaccine shot?

- that like ‘Heel I don’t like getting a freshly detailed car out in the rain?

- that I’m sending positive vibes to ‘Heel and buddy Jake?

So, Mr. Mook, what can it possibly be?

We are all anxiously waiting -

Nearly slanderous, more nearly accurate.

You are reading too much into it. I didn't say "creepy" like it was a bad thing.

Mr. Bosch’s claim to fame?  He invented the modern spark plug.  Gasoline engines must have become much more practical after that.

Just last week, ads appeared on the sides of buses, looking for daffodil pickers.  It’s an annual sight, but things may be worse this year.  We have a few really big daffodil farms here, but the closed border makes it difficult to get the usual Central American crop harvesters, and few Canadians want to do work like that.

Sounds familiar.
