Dishwashers are among the bestselling products of both companies. Bosch is known to be the quietest dishwasher brand, and along with it, their dishwashers are energy efficient. LG’s dishwashers, on the other hand, are well known for their sleek and stylish design, along with their silent feature. Both consist of top-quality features of their own, but which to choose when buying a new dishwasher for your home? Which of these brands of dishwashers would be the most suitable?
To find out, keep reading this article and follow it till the end.
We will look at the main features that are different in the Bosch and LG dishwasher and discuss them in brief detail.
Bosch vs LG: How do they differ from one another?
When buying a dishwasher, it’s important to think about key factors such as energy efficiency, noise level, capacity, and other special features. Bosch is known for its reliability and quiet operation, while LG has a larger capacity and more advanced features.
Following is a side-by-side comparison of the features of both brands’ dishwashers.
1. Noise during operation
In today’s times, most companies pay great attention to the noise of the dishwashers they manufacture. If you regularly use a dishwasher, you will also know that one mostly keeps the dirty dishes in the dishwasher during the night. You may not prefer the appliance to make loud sounds and disturb you. It is now one of the most noted features by the buyer when buying a dishwasher that is it a quiet working appliance or is it a noisy one? Given that, which brand you must buy?
Dishwashers are considered to be “quiet” when they have a sound rating of less than 40 dB. Luckily, The Bosch dishwashers are known for their quietness and have a sound rating of just 38 dB. On the other hand, LG dishwashers mostly have an acceptable sound rating of 44-48 dB. The luxury LG model, its signature model has a 40 dB sound rating.
2. Height, width & weight
Will the dishwasher I buy be able to fit in the place I have allotted for it in my kitchen? This question does arise in the minds of most of the buyers. They make sure to check all the important measurements of the appliance before purchasing it to avoid any inconvenience later on. Measurements include height, width, and weight.
Both of them almost share the same height, width, and thickness.
The Bosch dishwasher’s height is around 865mm while the LG dishwasher is 850mm tall. The LG dishwasher is only 49 kg while the Bosch dishwasher is 54 kg. The heavier the appliance the more difficult to move it from one place to another. The thickness of both is almost the same with the LG dishwasher being 573 mm thick and the Bosch dishwasher having 570 mm thickness.
There is not a very huge difference in their measurements but the LG’s dishwasher seems to be much more compact.
3. Insulated Heating Element
Heat is produced in the dishwasher during its operation. This may be a problem when you want to wash plastic stuff, as plastic may melt in the intense heat of the dishwasher, thus damaging the utensils.
As a solution to this problem, some companies have added “an insulated heating element” in their dishwashers, which protects all material types of utensils. The dishwashers from the “Bosch” brand come with this feature it’s not included in the LG models.
LG may be suitable for you if you use only good heat-resistant stuff, while on the other hand if along with heat-resistant stuff, you are a frequent plastic, silicone stuff user, the Bosch dishwashers are recommended.
4. Warranty Period
Home appliances are used on a regular basis, thus increasing the chance of damage to it. It is important that the appliance has a long warranty period so that as long as it can, its repair could be covered under warranty, by the company providing the appliance.
A company providing you warranty means they are assuring you the top-quality product. Before purchasing an appliance, one must check whether or not an appliance comes with a warranty.
LG offers a 10-year long warranty and with it, the company assures to provide service if anything wrong happens with the dishwasher. On the other hand, Bosch offers a 5-year warranty period. Additionally, Bosch also offers 100-dollar-per-year insurance once the warranty period ends. However, this insurance comes with a cost.
Winner: LG (10-year warranty period)
5. Fastest Wash Cycle
Many people opt to buy dishwashers when they don’t have enough time to stay at home and wash the dishes themselves. These people are mostly working men/women who are always in a rush and want to get things done as quickly as possible.
Different dishwashers come with different duration of wash cycles. The fastest an LG model dishwasher can wash your utensils is 1 hour while the Bosch dishwasher can do it as early as half an hour. So surely, the Bosch dishwasher is the go-to option for people who want fast-operation dishwashers.
6. Delay start
Most of the dishwashers come with a delay start option included in their features, Bosch and LG dishwashers are also not an exception. Delay start refers to being able to set a time at which you want the dishwasher to start operating.
Though there is a maximum time limit till when you can delay the operations, and that is what is different in both the brand’s dishwashers.
For LG dishwashers, the maximum delay time limit is 19 hours while for the Bosch dishwasher models the limit is of 24 hours.
The LG dishwasher would be a great choice for someone looking for a sleek, stylish, compact option. It comes with a lot of interesting features.
But I would suggest the Bosch dishwasher for sure because it has not only all the features included in the LG models but also other extra features which are not present in the LG model dishwashers.
Dishwashers are a big investment you do for your homes so you better research before you regret your decision.
