    I think you mentioned what you needed the $ for and things took a life if their own as they do around here.

    But, if you get a black Bosch you could get someone to put a Skyline decoration on it. That way you would still have a Skyline to look at!

    LOL, Jon, that sounds like something you would come up with.
    Grills and guns are a lot alike. While one would usually suffice and you can only use one a time, each grill/gun is better in certain situations.

Which is WONDERFUL because it does not vent the steam under the counter and if you have laminate counters you will understand why not venting steam under there is important. I owned a Bosch for a long time and would have bought another had I been able to find one in stock. I only bought the Electrolux because it was the only product I was able to find "in stock" to simply buy and take home. But believe me when that Electrolux POS dies there WILL be another Bosch in it's place!
    Barb and I bought a LG range from Sears when we built our new home in Prescott, About six months after we installed it one of the burner knobs became very loose. It was under warranty so I called Sears and they sent a tech out. He pulled it off and the stem was cracked, he then pulled the other four off and they were showing signs of cracking. He got on his lap top to order five new knobs. He had this puzzled look on his face and said somethings wrong here let me call the parts office and see what I can find out.
    What he found out was that the cost to Sears for those five knobs was $625 $125 each... for plastic burner knobs!
    They had to do it two more times before the warranty ran out. The next time I went to the appliance store and bought five new knobs that looked almost the same and had metal supports on the shaft. Five new knobs that completely fixed the problem $35 and change.
    Never looked at an LG product again.

    Maybe a White Sox logo on it as well.

    Those are confined to my "man cave" study. I have a big water color of old Comiskey Park, a framed photo from the last game played there and a three-dimensional Sox logo. These days my interest in baseball has waned, but I had some special times at old Comiskey Park that reminded me of my Dad's stories of being a kid at Ebbets Field seeing the Brooklyn Dodgers in the day.

    Now we are wandering off topic again, except that you could see the Chicago Skyline view pretty well from old Comiskey:

    Maybe Joel can cut you a Madison skyline decal for your Bosch dishwasher? Or something equally interesting, maybe a red Kettle badge!
    Oh, and Joel, the stickers came Saturday! They look great, I know what my project for spring is going to be!

    Its not misinformation:

    All Bosch dishwashers use a condensation drying process. ... Additionally, since Bosch dishwashers do not use a heating element, your plastics are safe in the lower rack. Here's how it works: The final rinse uses high-temperature water to make the dishes very hot.

    Dishwasher FAQs | Top Tips | Bosch
    https://www.bosch-home.com/us/...bos...estions_answer...

    Yes they have a heating element for heating water which of course they would to a temperature for condensation drying but that is not the same as having a heating element on the bottom. From what I have read they don't do a great job with drying plastic which we use a lot of and they recommend using using a rinse aid to help drying plastic bowls or whatever. You also have to manually clean the food filter.

    The KitchenAid can be used either way you don't have to use the dryer if you don't want to you can do condensation drying if you wish, if using the dryer you don't need rinse aid and the food filter is permanent it does not need cleaning. The DB's on the higher end Bosch are the same as the KitchenAid model I bought and are sitting at 39 which is very quiet. Both have the 3rd rack so a wash there.

    I know plenty of people who have Bosch Dishwashers and are happy with them I just wanted to have the flexibility of using the drying option or not and most likely my wife will use that exclusively. Neither is a bad choice BestBuy had a great sale, install for free KitchenAid the model I got not all models, deliver for free and in GA which I did not know if you have a built in appliance professionally installed they do not charge sales tax which was a nice chunk of change to put in your pocket or take the wife out to dinner.

    I agree with you on the LG would not touch their stuff again.
