Two of the most well known and top appliances brands are Bosch and Miele. Both brands have a strong history of excellence in manufacturing, highly reliable line up of appliances, diverse price range, cutting edge technology, and gorgeous aesthetics. In this article, we will look at how each brand is compared to the other. Although both brands have different appliance models, let’s keep the point of comparison simple and practical by choosing the most often used appliance in our homes and not to mention these two brands are definitely well known for – the dishwasher. Let’s take a look:


Bosch and Miele are the best dishwasher brands on the market today. Both represent the pinnacle of dishwasher design, and uphold an uncompromising focus on quality and cleaning performance. These German dishwashers are purchased by the millions for the quality, design, features, and cleaning power they provide. So the question that’s begging to be asked is, which brand is better? Or better yet, which brand provides the better dishwasher? By identifying a few categories, we will be able to gauge the differences between these two brands and you’ll learn how to choose the best one for your needs.


When it comes to noise, Bosch has a reputation for making incredibly quiet dishwashers. The Bosch 800 series boasts models with noise levels capping out at 40 dB, with some as low as 39 dBA. The Bosch Benchmark series features a model with 38 dB rating, which is far softer than the sound of a quiet whisper. Miele dishwashers won’t be waking up anyone in your house, either. Many of their own models boast a 38 dB noise level, which means you won’t hear them working. Both manufacturers take noise levels seriously. Neither Bosch nor Miele resort to popular tricks such as measuring noise during wash operation while skipping water intake and pump out sequences.


With a wide range of dependable wash cycles and an interior tub design that allows for fast, safe drying, you can rest assured that both a Bosch and a Miele appliances will consistently clean your dishes while keeping them free from damage or other wear. What it will come down to most when making your buying decision is what matters most to you — more robust and unique cycle types, or more effective and speedy drying? Maximum loading space or organized, versatile storage racks? Water softener to keep water marks away?

BOSCH VS. MIELE - Miele dishwasher


Miele is often considered the most closely integrated manufacturer of appliances in the world. Nearly every single one of their parts is manufactured directly by the company itself with high end materials like aluminum and titan. This has allowed them to advertise a 20-year lifespan of regular use without any drop in functionality. Miele machines are built to keep on going for decades, which is evident in every part from the buttons to the racks and the wheels they glide on.

But Bosch is no slouch when it comes to durability and longevity, either. They test their dishwashers to withstand a minimum of ten years of use. And their dedication to using only the highest-quality parts has long been a hallmark of the brand.

In conclusion, both brands have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. As the top 2 most reliable dishwasher manufacturers in the world, both Bosch and Miele provide top notch appliances within a specific price range. As time goes by though, the reliability erodes a little bit and eventually we may need help in fixing these and other appliances, in any case help is just a phone call away once you get in touch with your qualified appliance technicians who can provide both the most economical solution and the most genuine and original spare parts.

    Having owned 2 Bosch appliances and having had 3 Miele kitchens and now building a 4th, the 2 brands are not comparable. Bosch, in Europe, is a mid-tier appliance supplier. It’s where they belong. In the USA, marketing has positioned it as something it’s not. Caveat Emptor. Miele is a solid product. Superb in use. Issues: plenty. Their quality is a far cry from what it used to be. My washing machine in Switzerland is 40 years old. Runs and looks like a champ. My USA washing machine has been nursing bad bearings on the drum ($900 repair) since it was 3 years old. The dishwashers are noisier with each new generation (and less expensive). I have 3 vacuum cleaners, the best is 26 years old. Then a 20 year old model that’s now our garage vac and the flimsiest with some dumb design choices is a mere 5 years old. But, they are all vastly more reliable and nicer to use than any of the elite designer appliance brands sold in the USA. They are made for those that cook. Not those with a single bowl kitchen sink that can’t handle a 12” pan but with a brace of ovens, built in refrigeration and enormous gas ranges that have never been lit.
