HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - As friends and family gather to toast the holidays and share delicious feasts, party hosts are left with piles of dishes as their guests shuffle out the door. Engineered for quiet and efficient performance, the Bosch 800 Plus dishwasher lets holiday hosts deck the halls instead of scrub the dishes.

Using as little as 2 gallons of water per cycle, 70 percent less than the average dishwasher, and operating on an industry best 180 kWh/y of energy, the Bosch 800 Plus is the most efficient dishwasher in North America and guarantees homeowners a spot on Santa's "nice" list. The ENERGY STAR qualified Bosch 800 Plus dishwasher also offers a variety of convenience and safety features that make it the ultimate holiday party machine:

-- The Bosch 800 Plus operates at an ultra-quiet 40 dBA -- a sound so low that you can quickly and quietly clean up your dishes for the next course without your guests even noticing the dishwasher is on.

-- Cold winter temperatures often mean frozen pipes and brittle hoses -- and nothing derails a party faster than a messy leak. The Bosch 800 Plus Dishwasher features AquaStop® Plus, a patented four-part leak protection system that is the most comprehensive safety package in the U.S.

-- To tackle even the largest jobs, the Bosch 800 Plus fits up to 15 complete place settings and features a V-shaped third rack for silverware, bigger cutlery items and small dishes.
