Bosch SMV40C30GB Kenwood KID60S17
12 Reasons For
Slightly Quieter Noise Level
The Bosch SMV40C30GB has a noise level of 50dB, however the Kenwood KID60S17 is a 52dB dishwasher (2dB louder).

'Noise Level' denotes how much noise the dishwasher makes when it's in use, measures in decibels (dB).

Less noise makes for a nicer atmosphere while the wash is running, and means the machine is less likely to disturb and annoy people.

Read more Read less | Edit
Anti-Leak Function (AquaStop)
The Bosch SMV40C30GB has an Anti-Leak Function (AquaStop), however the Kenwood KID60S17 does not.

Aquastop is a function that monitors the flow of water into the dishwasher and automatically stops water flowing in the event of a leak.

Aquastop can help prevent accidental damages to the dishwasher and its surroundings because of leaky pipes and flooding.

Read more Read less | Edit
Load Sensor
The Bosch SMV40C30GB has a load sensor, whereas the Kenwood KID60S17 does not have this feature.

A 'Load Sensor' detects how many dishes are placed into the dishwasher, in order to select the correct cycle.

Read more Read less | Edit
Child Lock
The Bosch SMV40C30GB has a child lock, but the Kenwood KID60S17 does not have this feature.

A child lock is a special system to stop children from accidentally opening the machine when you're not looking, leading to them hurting themselves or the machine.

A child lock makes the dishwasher far safer to use around small children, and reduces the chance of any accidents.

Read more Read less | Edit
Self-Cleaning Filter
The Bosch SMV40C30GB has a self-cleaning filter, whereas the Kenwood KID60S17 does not have this feature.

A self-cleaning filter automatically runs water through it after a cycle, dislodging any caught up food and helping keep it in a good condition.

A self-cleaning filter will keep the machine at peak efficiency for far longer, meaning it won't need manual cleaning or replacing nearly as often.
