Siemens household appliances are a fixed feature in European apartments and houses. The dishwashers of the traditional company are no exception and can also convince in terms of price. Traditionally, Siemens dishwashers are positioned in the upper mid-range, but thanks to the large product range, you can find just about anything in the models, from entry-level appliances to particularly innovative novelties.
Typical product features
With a dishwasher from Siemens, you always get a device that can convince with its modern design and advanced ideas. After all, Siemens has been successfully building dishwashers for many decades and has thus contributed a great deal to the triumph of these appliances in German and European households. You can be sure that you will find the dishwasher that perfectly suits your needs and wishes at Siemens. The product range extends from chic undercounter dishwashers at a particularly affordable price, to partially integrable models with a visible control panel and the option of attaching a furniture panel, to fully integrable appliances that are not recognizable at first glance in the kitchen.
A wide variety of washing programs ensure the best washing results, a gentle drying process and help save water and energy. This is good for the wallet and the environment. Modern manufacturing methods and high-quality materials guarantee not only a long service life for every Siemens dishwasher, but also particularly quiet operation.
Siemens is also focusing on future-proof technology and is launching more and more household appliances with smart home technology. That’s why you’ll find “Home Connect” on some Siemens dishwashers. This allows you to connect the dishwasher to your smartphone or tablet and start, manage and control the wash directly through these media. The app to be installed will help you choose the right program and inform them about the status of the machine.
Some models from Siemens are dishwashers with zeolite drying. These use the natural zeolite mineral for the drying process, which binds the moisture inside and converts it into warm air. This significantly reduces the power consumption of the dishwasher, and even with plastic dishes you can achieve a very good drying result.

Siemens dishwashers in test
Siemens household appliances are always found at the top of the rankings in Stiftung Warentest tests. However, in the last dishwasher test (9/2020 issue), Siemens was only able to achieve a place in the midfield with the iQ500 SN558S02PD and iQ500 SN658X02PD models. The Siemens iQ300 SN636X03IE model was also only ranked 8th in 2019, but we should wait and see how the test reports develop in the endurance test over the next few years.
After all, the Siemens iQ300 SN536S01CE dishwasher was able to convince in the test of ETM Testmagazin (issue 8/2019) with 3rd place out of 9 tested dishwashers. The testers gave the overall rating of “very good” (92%). The model scored particularly well with its many additional functions. But there was also little to criticize about the rinsing and drying results. Thanks to the intensive zone, even stubborn dirt is usually reliably removed. In the Auto and Eco wash programs, the semi-integratable dishwasher was able to convince with low power consumption.
High quality, best operability, excellent washing results as well as conservation of resources are some of the most important criteria according to which Siemens dishwashers are designed and produced. Behind it is always BSH Hausgeräte GmbH, which emerged from Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH in 2015 and is currently fully owned by Bosch. Siemens dishwashers share various components and technical innovations with Bosch appliances, which allows them to maintain their leading position on the market in the best possible way.
