Why Has it Scored 85?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has exceptional user reviews with an average user rating of 92%, based on 71 reviews.
This dishwasher is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer dishwashers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Bosch dishwasher has an efficiency rating of A++, and its running costs of £460 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 2,300+ dishwashers that we have calculated running costs for.
The SMV68MD02E has some great features:
13 place settings
Quieter than average noise level
Has a self-cleaning filter
Has an AquaSensor function

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each dishwasher by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the dishwasher is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec dishwashers come to market, the older dishwashers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

In 2017 most new Bosch dishwashers were released in March as well, with 37 new Bosch dishwashers released that month. The biggest month in 2016 for new Bosch dishwasher releases was July, with 164 new Bosch dishwashers released that month.

    Most dishwashers drop in price by 2% in the first 6 months after release. On average Bosch dishwashers drop in price by 10% in the first 6 months after release. That means a saving of $84 on a typical $873 new Bosch dishwasher if you wait 6 months before buying.
