December 27, 2018

Boschcompactlaundry

If you live a minimalist life, it’s probably the simple things that bring you pleasure. From a subtle grey wall to a piece of furniture that is multi-functional, being a minimalist is all about the whole, “less is more” motto. So, if that sort of lifestyle speaks to you, you probably appreciate downsizing your home in any way possible – even when it comes to your appliances.

With a Bosch compact washer and dryer, you can now do laundry quickly and efficiently without taking up a lot of space. Check out these great reasons why your inner minimalist dreams will come true after using a Bosch compact washer and dryer.

  1. Fit It Anywhere

The Bosch Compact laundry pairs are each 24 inches, making them much smaller than your average washer and dryer. Because of their condensed size, you can fit them almost anywhere in your home! If you have a tiny place, these laundry appliances will be the perfect addition and will never make your home feel cramped. Not to mention, they can also be stacked on top of each other, giving you even more possibilities.

  1. Control from Your Phone

If you have minimalist tendencies, you probably like to stay organized, especially when it comes to your home’s upkeep. With the Home Connect App, you’ll not only be able to keep an eye on your laundry cycles from afar, you’ll also be able to start a wash or dry cycle with a quick touch of a button on your phone.

You’ll also find that having the Home Connect app on your phone can help you keep up with your daily chores, so you don’t fall behind. For example, instead of forgetting about your clothes after running them through a wash cycle, your phone will now be able to notify you when your clothes are done! You can say goodbye to stale-smelling clothes that have been left in the washer too long. This app is simple and functional, which is exactly what the minimalist doctor ordered.

  1. Eco-Friendly

A Bosch compact washer and dryer are more than just fashionable appliances, they’re also made for a good cause. From the Eco Perfect Cycle that reduces energy consumption by adjusting the temperature, to being one of the few Energy Star qualified dryers on the laundry market, you’ll find that these appliances are more than just good looks – they’re the full eco-friendly package.

3 Reviews That Prove Bosch Built-In Coffee Machine is the Best

October 30, 2018

It’s hard to know how an appliance works if you can’t truly test it out for yourself before you buy it. For this reason, checking reviews has become a ritual for many buyers before making a final decision.

Reviews are so trusted because they come from people who have decided to just go for it and buy the appliance in hopes that it would be everything they dreamed. And people really trust them because they have nothing to prove and only want to let you know what you’re either missing out on or why you shouldn’t waste your time on such a product.

Because it’s National Coffee Month, we wanted to highlight the Bosch Built-In Coffee Machine, and show you, why you’ll want to sip your brew from such a high-tech appliance. Check out these 3 awesome reviews from Bosch.com – from real people — that describe why this Bosch appliance is the best for drinking.

 

  1. “Amazing coffee maker”

“Love, Love, Love this machine. My Italian machine died after 12 years and umpteen repairs. Did a lot of research including going to the dealer for a taste test between Bosch and several of its competitors. This machine by far put out the best tasting cup of coffee. When you add in the largest water and bean reservoirs, it was a no brainer. And even though I didn’t think I would use it, the ability to make a cup via an app is really cool. Did I mention I love this machine?”

 

  1. “Best part of our new kitchen!”

“I have to admit this coffee machine is the reason I convinced my wife it was time to fully renovate our kitchen. We bought all new Bosch appliances and we love them all (induction cooktop, built-in dishwasher, drawer microwave and convection oven) and we love them all, but this baby takes the prize as my favorite new kitchen toy. The coffee is delicious, the connected app is awesome (we create “coffee playlists” for our guests) and the maintenance is super easy and straight-forward. Love it! “

 

  1. “Great machine!”

“We bought this a couple months ago and have had it installed for a little over a month now. We had a nice manual countertop espresso machine for a couple years before this and thought it was great until we started using this machine. We are pretty shocked how good the coffee is that it produces. It was definitely one of the best things we added to our kitchen remodel. Great coffee and just at a press of the button. Highly recommended!”

Cook Anywhere with a Bosch Flexinduction Cooktop

September 7, 2018

Bosch - Cook anywhere with a bosch1

The best things in life are flexible: Gum, Slinkys, and even those stretchy pants you make sure to wear every Thanksgiving.

But, with their new cooktops, Bosch is bringing that same level of flexibility to your kitchen. And, with the added power of induction, Bosch is introducing a Flex-volution to cooking as you know it. Here are just a few of the reasons that FlexInduction Cooktops will help you cook any way – and anywhere — you want.

Bigger is Better

If you’ve got a big meal to prepare for the in-laws, or just have a lot of mouths to feed every night, cooking can be a time-consuming and crowded affair. With all those pots and pans – and NO ROBBIE PUT THAT DOWN THAT ISN’T DONE COOKING YET – and well, you only have two hands, and only so much cooktop space, it’s an underappreciated miracle that dinner gets done at all sometimes.

Bosch has heard your dinnertime cries. FlexInduction cooktops can get your cooking done quicker than your kids will be able to destroy the house or mess up the kitchen. With FlexInduction, your cooktop’s two cooking zones can be used together to allow for the use of larger cookware. One massive cooking zone, all ready for everything you – and your family – can throw at it.

Faster is Better

Patience may be a virtue, but that doesn’t mean it’s one that most people practice often. Don’t worry, Bosch has a solution for you there, too. With the SpeedBoost function, you’ll be boiling water twice as fast.

Mac and cheese? Pasta? Corn on the cob? All of those family staples just got faster to cook, which means you have more time to spend actually eating dinner with your family instead of just wasting away over the stove all evening.

Power is Better

Imagine having all the power in the universe. Imagine being able to snap your finger and the rules of space, time, and energy all bend to your will.

Bosch - Cook anywhere with a bosch2

So, this might not be quite that powerful, but it’s probably the next best thing. Bosch’s PowerMove feature divides your FlexInduction into three different areas. Each area has a different preset power level, and all you have to do is move whatever you are cooking to change levels. It’s easy as pie! Except you probably shouldn’t cook pie on a cooktop. But you get the general idea.

Everything is Better

In case you aren’t already convinced at just how awesome Bosch cooktops are, there’s one more stop left on this train ride. Bosch cooktops also feature a wide array of other features, including child locks, SafeStart that makes sure other metal objects aside from cookware don’t start the element, and even settings perfect for melting chocolate or butter. Bravo, Bosch. You really have thought of everything. Bravo.

Even better, if you are looking for a new Bosch cooktop – or just can’t decide which of their cooktops would fit best for your kitchen space and needs – stop in today and we can answer any and all of your questions. We promise to get you back cooking in your kitchen again before your kids will even notice you are missing. Or at least before they cause too much trouble.


5 Reasons to Get a Black Stainless Steel Kitchen Set from Bosch

August 11, 2018

bosch-5-reasons-to-get-a-black-stainless-steel2

Stainless steel has been a kitchen mainstay across the country for decades now, but over the past few years, its sleek, stylish sibling “black stainless” has been taking over in a big way. “It’s the fastest growing appliance color,” says Mark Allwood of Consumer Reports. “There’s been a 1,000 percent increase in black stainless-steel models on the market in the past two years.”

As high-quality brands like Bosch continue to adopt the option, the appeal of black stainless just keeps growing. For anyone looking for a new kitchen set, Bosch’s line of black stainless appliances really is a no brainer. The sleek, timeless design of Bosch appliances and the contemporary cool of black stainless combine to create a kitchen that’s as elegant as it is efficient. But if you still aren’t sure, check out these five reasons why your next kitchen redo should feature a black stainless set by Bosch.

  1. It’s Easy to Take Care Of

If you’ve ever owned stainless steel appliances, you know what a hassle it can be to keep them clean. Streaks, scratches, and sticky fingers can take a real toll on your beautiful stainless steel, quickly dulling its natural shine. With black stainless steel appliances from Bosch, those fears will be a thing of the past. These appliances aren’t made with a simple foil coating, they’re made of a special material that resists scratches and fingerprint marks to keep your kitchen looking better than ever.

  1. It Matches Everything

A Bosch black stainless appliance set goes well with everything, and we mean EVERYTHING. White walls? Check. Bold cabinet colors? Check. Contemporary kitchen? Definitely. Rustic inspired style? A great way to add a modern touch! Black stainless really can do it all, and it’s a great way to pull together a kitchen, no matter the style. You know what they say—black is the new black!

  1. It’s Hip

The black stainless appliance trend started in Europe a few years back, and it’s been slowly making its way west ever since. Not only do black appliances embody a contemporary cool that American kitchens are always striving for, they have a certain unbeatable European elegance about them that’s impossible to resist. Plus, even though the trend is gaining popularity fast, we’re still in the early years of the black stainless steel-splosion. That means you’ll be way ahead of the curve when the trend really makes it big time!

  1. It Makes Décor Stand Out

In addition to being works of art in their own right, black stainless appliances can also be arranged to take a supporting role to your favorite accent pieces. Like a black velvet jewelry box, black stainless makes the gems in your kitchen pop. Whether that means your painstakingly painted cabinets, a one-of-a-kind antique table, or your kids’ artistic masterpieces, black stainless provides a perfect backdrop for the most important things in your home.

  1. It’s Bosch

Filling up their lives with some fun times

Hello! You’d be getting a full set of Bosch appliances! Need we say more? Well loved by home cooks and professional chefs (like Chef Curtis Stone of Top Chef and Take Home Chef fame), Bosch has made a name for itself as a brand that’s as excellent as it is elegant. A Bosch kitchen really is a pro kitchen, and all style aside, if you get a black stainless appliance set from Bosch, you know you’ll be investing in a reliable kitchen set that will serve your family well years to come.

So don’t wait! Get started on that kitchen reno and take your style to the next level with black stainless steel appliances from Bosch. Your future kitchen awaits you!


The Right Way to Load a Bosch Dishwasher

July 30, 2018

Floor level look up at pretty girl loading dishwasher

With three racks — including a middle rack that adjusts to 9 different racks — the Bosch dishwasher takes capacity and loading to new heights, while also being the quietest dishwasher brand in the U.S.

Although dishwashers are meant to make our lives easier, the way you load your dishes can be the difference between perfectly clean dishes, or dishes with pieces of food still clinging on for dear life. Check out these tips to maximize your Bosch dishwasher, and get perfectly cleaned dishes every single cycle.

  1. Load the Bottom Rack

Use the bottom rack to load heavy items like pots and pans, mixing bowls, and large plates. Never overlap or nest items — instead place dishes so that the most soiled areas face the spray arms. Organize larger items like platters and baking sheets toward the sides of the dishwasher, where they won’t block detergent and/or water from reaching the rest of the dishes. Also, make sure the baking sheets do not block any vents.

Next, load flatware or utensils to the bottom rack. Place knives face down – for safety’s sake! — and separate spoons and forks from one another so they don’t nest.

  1. Load the Middle Rack

Next, load smaller items like glasses and mugs on the middle rack. When it comes to wine glasses and coffee mugs, place them face down at an angle to help prevent water from collecting inside. Some Bosch dishwashers come with a third rack to load more items, but if you only have two racks, lay longer utensils flat across the bottom rack so that they will not fall and get caught in the spray arms.

  1. Load Top Rack

The newest Bosch dishwashers feature a third MyWay™ rack, which has the largest loading capacity of any third rack on the market. The standard Bosch third rack is also good for loading silverware, large utensils, measuring cups, cereal bowls, and coffee mugs. For best results, load larger items on the top rack so they are thoroughly cleaned.

  1. Soap and Settings

After successfully loading your Bosch Dishwasher, add soap and select the setting of your choice. Use a manufacturer recommended dish soap, as other detergents can cause build-up that will clog the system. Always be cautious on how much soap you use, too: Too much liquid soap can leave a residue on your dishes, and nobody wants to eat off slimy and soapy plates.

Next, choose the best setting for the job: Use the delicate setting for items like fine China or glassware, the heavy setting for tough jobs like pots and pans, or the extra dry setting for hard-to-dry items like glass and plastic. Bosch dishwashers also have a setting called Speed60 — which washes and dries in one hour — a feature that’s especially convenient when preparing for an upcoming dinner party or special occasion.

And don’t forget: Always make sure there is enough room between plates and try and wait until the machine is full before you start it. Following these easy steps will allow for a more efficient clean and keep your dishes — and you — much happier.


Enjoy National Doughnut Day with a Built-in Bosch Coffee Machine

June 1, 2018

bosch coffee machine

There’s some things that just go perfectly together. Peanut butter and jelly, Yin and Yang, hugs and kisses, and of course – coffee and doughnuts. It’s not something you can eat every day with your coffee, but when it’s National Doughnut Day, you have to participate! Instead of going out to grab your cup of Joe, wouldn’t it be convenient to retrieve the perfect brew from your own kitchen? The Bosch Built-In Coffee Machine was made to bring ease and luxury to your life. From fancy cappuccinos to a simple cup of black coffee, having a Bosch Built-In Coffee Maker can do a lot of things to make your life all around better.

Wake up and smell the coffee

Bosch home connect app

Normally, people who don’t own a Built-In Coffee Machine, have to sluggishly wake up, get out of bed, and make their coffee before it can be sipped. With one of these high-end appliances, you can wake up and order your beverage in the comforts of your own room. You don’t even have to get out of bed, do your hair, or change out of your pajamas. Simply log on to your Bosch Home Connect App to choose what you want that morning. Remotely customize the size, strength, and even temperature of your drink, so it will be ready by the time you make it in the kitchen. Make sure to leave a mug under the coffee machine to ensure your coffee ends up in your cup and not all over the ground.

It can do anything a barista can

Your coffee machine may not be able to give you a smile or greet you, but it can quickly and efficiently give you a perfect cup of coffee whenever you want it. Not to mention, it’s free – which will save you hundreds to even thousands every year, depending on how much you like to go to coffee shops for a hot or cold beverage. Instead of spending $5 on a coffee drink, pay nothing for one that’s just as good. How can you argue with logic like that?

Save your favorites

If you have a specific way you like your coffee, this Bosch Coffee Machine has a feature called “My Coffee” on the Home Connect App that allows you to customize your drinks and save them as your favorites! No more struggling to tell a barista your complicated coffee order – just pop it in once, and get the same thing every time.

The Bosch Built-In Coffee Machine can do a lot for you and only requires a little bit in return. This luxury coffee maker can hold a lot of water and coffee beans, but still needs you to add it from time to time. Luckily the free Home Connect App will be there to notify you when that time comes so you’ll always be prepared. So instead of making two trips on National Doughnut Day for that perfectly glazed doughnut and a cup of brew, get your coffee from home and go enjoy a sweet doughnut on June 1!


How to Install Your Bosch Dishwasher

May 21, 2018
bosch dishwasher
With all these cool do-it-yourself techniques out there, it’s easy to think you can do anything yourself. Sometimes you just want to save a little bit of money and figure it out on your own. Other times it’s not that easy, and should be left up to the professionals. If you’re planning on installing your new Bosch Dishwasher, check out the steps below to make sure you do it right on this D.I.Y. Dishwasher project.
  • Turn Off the Water and Power
So now that you have a new dishwasher, the first step is to turn off the water under the sink and the power to your dishwasher. If you forget to do one or both of these steps, you could end up with a mess on your hands. Once you’re past that simple, yet very important part, remove the access panel at the bottom of your Bosch Dishwasher. This part can be sharp, so be careful! Set it aside for now.
  • Slide in the Dishwasher
Before pushing in your shiny new appliance, you’ll want to make sure the drain hose is pulled through the cabinet wall. With that out of the way, gently move your dishwasher under the counter where it will seamlessly fit in. If your dishwasher is too short, easily adjust the legs at the bottom so that their level, and lock them into place with screws. You’ll also want to screw in the mounting bracket on top of the dishwasher to countertop to make sure it doesn’t wobble.
  • Adjust the Drain hose 
Take the drain hose that you slid through the cabinet, and pull the whole thing through. You’ll then connect it to the sink drain or garbage disposal with a clamp. You’ll want to make sure your hose is higher than where it’s connected so there are no draining issues. Use a zip tie to tie the hose to something above the connection, ensuring there won’t be any problems.
  • Junction box
bosch dishwasher junction box
Locate the junction box, underneath the access panel. Unscrew the junction box cover to unveil 3 screws: gold, silver, and green. Loosen each screw a little bit so that you can connect the power cable wires to their matching slots. Each dishwasher may be a little different here so it’s important that you read the manual for this specific part   
  • Connect water supply line to the inlet valve
With the access panel off, you can easily see the inlet valve, which you will connect to the water supply line. There is a chance that water is still in the drain from when the manufacturers tested out your appliance so be prepared for some water to possibly pour out. Put the lower access panel back on your Bosch dishwasher. Your now ready to turn on the power and water!
If you’re able to make it all the way to the end, congratulations! It’s no easy feat to install a dishwasher, but with the right tools and information, you’ll be done in less than an hour. If you need help installing your Bosch Dishwasher, let us know and we’d be happy to assist!
