Bosch 800 vs Miele G7156 dishwasher

I’ve been so consumed by our never ending bathroom remodel that I somehow missed the crazy Bosch dishwasher shortages. So when our current 15 year old Bosch sprung a leak I assumed I could just get a new one in the next couple of weeks. Imagine my surprise when this turned out to be so not the case!

Long story short, here are our current options:

  • purchase an in-stock Bosch 100
  • wait a year for a Bosch 800
  • purchase an in-stock Miele G7156

I’ve never owned a Miele dishwasher, but have LOVED my previous two Bosch machines. Has anyone regretted going from Bosch to Miele or vice versa?
Also, is the optional water softener necessary with average city water (not too hard, not too soft)?
