Excellent Choice!
By Lowe's Guest from Wilmington, Delaware on Feb 25, 2014
Very impressed with this CR top rated Best Buy!! Attractive, efficient and so quiet you don''t know if/when it''s running! The display tells you when it''s done. Granted we replaced a 30 yr old still-working, but noisy and inefficient dw, but this is a great example of just how much technology and manufacturing has improved! HUGE upgrade! (Not totally pleased with the positioning of the rack tines but we''re getting used to them and can accept this minor flaw. Knock on wood, CR has never let me down!) Dishes or utensils with baked-on foods will require rinsing ONLY IF you''re not washing them right away.

Great machine!
By Lowe's Guest from Coopersburg, PA 18036, USA on Jun 27, 2013
This is a terrific machine. It is well designed and really well put together. It washes beautifully! It is also the best machine out of 4 that I have used.

Bosch Dishwasher
By Lowe's Guest from Dallas on Jun 26, 2013
Overall I am satisfied with the purchase. The unit is extremely quite and cleans dishes great. Installation was quite simple and the design blends well with the other appliances. My only complaint is that I do not like the way the racks are set up. I had a Kenmore before this and it seemed a lot more flexible when it came to loading it.

Best one we''ve owned
By Lowe's Guest from Greenfield, OH 45123, USA on Jun 25, 2013
This is the quietest dishwasher we''ve ever had and it''s great. Dishes get cleaned and we hardly hear it when we''re sitting in the same room. Would definitely recommend this to others.

Bosch Ascenta SHE3ARF5UC
By Lowe's Guest from Huntsville, AL on May 14, 2013
The best dishwasher I have ever owned. We can''t even hear it running. We had to run our old dishwasher at night while we were asleep because it was so loud. Our dishes come out dry and spotless. Very easy to use and user-friendly. Also very easy to load and love the way the silverware racks keep the silverware spaced out so they don''t nest. Holds plenty.

Trust a "leading consumer magazine"
By Lowe's Guest from Lincoln, NE, USA on May 07, 2013
I read about the Ascenta being top-rated by a top consumer magazine that doesn''t endorse products. Some of their recommendations in my experience have been less than stellar, but this one is spot-on. Don''t let the bad reviews fool you: this dishwasher is solid. We''ve had this about a month now, after upgrading from double drawers that we lived with for about 12 years. I wanted to wait a bit to review it to ensure we had no problems. Maybe some of this is just the shock of moving back to a full-sized dishwasher, but we are impressed! Lowe''s sells two models of this Ascenta: one exclusive to them (this one, which I call the "ARF" based on its model number), which has a silverware basket that can be placed in a number of positions - back to back, side by side, middle of the rack, etc. - and has an option for a "rinse and hold" cycle; and one that is also sold by everyone else, with a regular silverware basket and a "half load" wash cycle instead. I''d say pick which combination of features is most important to you and order that model. We haven''t used Rinse and Hold yet, but the silverware basket is nice. Dishes come out always clean and usually dry. The consumer magazine in question was not lying about its ability to get everything clean! Very few issues here, especially considering we stopped pre-washing entirely. Our F&P DishDrawers didn''t get any food residue off. As for drying performance, the manual clearly states an option for "extra dry heat." I turned this on after the first load, which still wasn''t all bad. There is always condensation present in the unit, but most things (plates, silverware, glasses) are now fully dry. I think any dishwasher will always leave a bit of water in bowls, cups with domed bottoms, etc. but it is a small task to dry these as you are unloading. I have not yet had to turn on the sanitize option to get everything acceptably dry, but glad to know the option for more heat is always there. The manual also gives instructions on adjusting rinse aid amount. I turned it down to just a hair over midway, and with soft water, everything is coming out spotless. It ran out of rinse aid recently, though, and we could definitely tell that none was being used. Any spots cleared right up when I refilled the dispenser. I have always found surfactant (rinse aid) to be necessary in a dishwasher, so no surprises here, either. For those concerned about chemicals, I found a brand at my local grocery store called Lemi-Shine that is supposedly all natural and still works great. Noise-wise, it is as quiet as our old DishDrawers. Sounds almost the same, in fact. You can tell it''s running, but it''s pretty soft. Not the quietest out there, but very acceptable. Plastic bottom tub hasn''t stained yet, and it has stainless where it counts. Even the seemingly flimsy door (which I was concerned about when I compared other models in the store) seems perfectly fine, and like it will last. Installation was a cinch, especially considering I''d never installed a dishwasher before. Overall, this product is a great value for the money. Do not hesitate to buy it if you are looking at other dishwashers in this price range! The only reason I would hesitate is if for some reason you have unrealistic expectations from years of living with an American dishwasher :)

Love it
By Urmel from Brantford on Apr 10, 2013
I was weary when I bought it, I had a very good dishwasher that was only 2 years old until a family friend fell into it bottoms first and that meant goodbye for my beloved Bloomberg Dishwasher.
We bought this one just after boxing day and reviews on this site, worried me, however I have to admit we got a great deal, it was half price,and if I am perfectly honest it is better than my old one, which I did not think possible because I loved the old one that much.
The loading racks are sturdier, it makes more sense the way this one is loaded. I usually just use the 1 hour quick wash and my dishes come out sparkling. I had air dry before and would never go back to anything else. You can put plastic on to or bottom no problem with melting them. I can fit a lot in it including pots and pans, without problems, I than just use a longer program, I always use the 24 hr timer, when it is almost full I set it to run after 7pm and safe a lot on energy.
In regards to someone complaining about the silverware basket I just flip the lid to the other side and put my cutlery in without the dividers and my cutlery also comes out clean.
The only small complaint I have that in order to get the 1 hour cycle it has to have jet dry in it, if it runs out of jet dry the same cycle takes an hour and a half, I do use the best detergent and we have soft water so I really do not need the jet all I have run it without it and the dishes were just as clean. Oh well you cannot have everything.So I fill it up and safe on energy.
