Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Leaking water dispenser

Just installed this refrigerator and the water dispenser is faulty...it keeps dripping for about 30 seconds or so after the water is supposed to stop. Called local repair but it is a pain in the neck...

Great Refrigerator

Javi 7/13/2022

We wanted something nice for the newly remodeled kitchen, but functional. Our last few (other brand) refrigerators' ice dispensers leaked. One barely lasted a year. So far this one is working great and looks sharp. The black stainless is easy to clean and doesn't show smudges too. Overall high end high quality looks great.

Wish the 3rd drawer was outside and not inside

Because of covid I purchased whole kitchen appliances from Bosch site unseen. Had I known the vegetable bins were in the inside I would not have purchased. I am in the vegetable bins 3-4 times a day and it would have been preferable like my kitchen aid fridge at my house I moved from.

Slow Ice, Flimsy Drawers and Mind of its Own

Will 5/17/2022

The ice compartment is small, which would be an inconvenient if it produced anymore ice than a dozen cubes a day. The drawers easily pop off the tracks and do not seem very durable. The water dispenser seems to often decide to lock itself and the only way I could figure to reenable it was to connect it to the internet and install the Bosch app which comes with the added benefit that my refrigerator and its manufacture seem to need my undivided attention. I guess the upside to there badgering is that I they have guilted me into writing a review!

Extremely Frustrated with Bosch

4/26/2022

We bought this Bosch refrigerator in September of 2021 and the ice maker and water dispenser stopped working in November of 2021. We have had the service technician out to the house 3 times over the past five months and although the water dispenser now works the ice machine does not. The service technician was out again today and informed me that the ice maker (part number) 11036056 is in need of replacement and there is no ETA from Bosch on getting that part delivered. It is totally unexceptable that we have paid over $3000 for a brand new Bosch refrigerator and it has only work for a couple months since we purchased it. I would like some resolution - Sam

This Bosch is wonderful

Colorado K 3/23/2022

We replaced our 11-year-old "brand not to be named" with this Bosch because the previous appliance's icemaker went out and the cost of repair was astronomical. Our new Bosch is smaller but holds as much as the old appliance, and the icemaker is fantastic. Online reviews predict that will continue to be the case. However, I have two other "favorite" features on this fridge. The first I had anticipated, but not the second. The first: Absolutely no fingerprints! and the second: Vastly reduced spoilage. I had been blaming my grocery store for having to toss expensive produce on a regular basis, but I feel guilty about that now, as the same products are staying fresh and crispy until they are gone. I love this refrigerator.

Jason 3/21/2022

I got this unit to replace a horrible Samsung I had before. One week into owning it, the display is flashing an "E2" message. I called customer support and they took my information and I've heard nothing from them after two plus weeks. Unit seems to be working OK, but VERY disappointed to shell out the cash for this and have operational AND customer service issues so quickly.

Fridge almost perfect

Andrea 3/14/2022

Love everything about this fridge except that the ice maker occasionally gets jammed up at the opening where the crushed ice mechanism is. It's like there's condensation that freezes or just melted ice that refreezes in that opening. Have to knock it out and/or thaw it to make it work again. Other than that, love the black stainless, the bright lighting, the freezer organization, everything else!!!

This fridge has everything I wanted. Good lighting, roomy with lots of shelves and drawers, the pull out freezer with a drawer, and the ice/water dispenser is the best! All awesome! The one thing I would change if I could would be for the door to close automatically, just because my kids forget to push it and it ends up staying a crack open for too long.

Bosch Black Stainless Refriderator

Joey 2/8/2022

We went with this model based on the fact that only Bosch appliances would not reveal the typical stainless steel color if scratched. Overall we have been pretty happy with it except that the ice maker stopped working after 4 months and is now throwing an E2 error code. We have a technician coming out next week to repair. Frustrating because we had to wait weeks for the technician visit and have been without ice for over a month.

I enjoy looking at and using this appliance. It fits my kitchen space well and the dark stainless goes well with other black appliances and never looks smudged or dirty. Two issues: you have to watch that both doors fully close and the door storage could have higher barriers so tall things don't tip over.

Only Lasted 27 days

DJK80 1/5/2022

We purchased this French door refrigerator to replace the one Maytag we had for 10 years. We purchased at Lowes and they had to order it so we had to purchase a small fridge to get us by for a month while ours was back ordered. We received it and seemed to work fine for first 25 days then lost cooling in freezer then refrigerator compartment . Lost over a $100 dollars of frozen food. Called Lowes to see if they could send someone out to look at it or replace it. They said since we purchased it over 45 days before, that we had to call manufacturer for warranty even though we on had it from 11/30/2021 and called them on 12/27/2021. Not helpful at all even though we paid for extra 3 year service plan at Lowes. Only help they were was told us to call the manufacturer said that they had to cover first year of warranty. We called Bosch but the best they said they could do is get a service tech out on Jan 10th. We tried to reset as per recommendations in manual but code came up to call service tech. Very disappointed with both Lowes and Bosch. Did not expect to pay over $3100 for refrigerator that only lasts for 27 days and no help to get fixed or looked at for over two weeks.

Our Bosch 500

Fran 12/13/2021

We have had this unit about 4.5 months and we are pleased with it. Being a coffee guy, I like how I can leave the coffee pot sit and fill while I walk away and do other things. The fill can be programmed for a specific amount of water. There is plenty of room, and so far the ice maker has been delightful. We did buy a BYPASS component for the internal water filter since we already have an osmosis system in our house. The water filter in our Bosch only lasted about 4 months and it was clogging up. They are rather expensive. I would recommend just getting a separated water filtration system. They are worth every penny. I would recommend the refrigerator to anyone who expects more out a FRIG. It's quality1

Totally Disappointed

Dave 11/11/2021

I bought this device based on the claim that it was the fastest icemaker on the market. The icemaker makes a VERY LOUD knocking noise and can't keep up with ice production. I paid more for the Bosch brand because I thought I'd get a quality device and service. I submitted a service request and got a date about a month out. I tried to escalate with customer service since the knocking noise was keeping us up an night - no response. I thought Bosch was a level above the rest . . . apparently not. I'll be working to send this baby back.

We remodeled our kitchen, and went with Bosch appliance. I wasn't sure about the reliablility of Bosch for refrigerators, but so far I'm loving this one. I like that it's "Smart", so I can see if a door has been left open. It has quite a bit of door space, and that seems to have created more space for us in the fridge itself.

Looks beautiful. Subpar design for Bosch

Adam D 10/2/2021

The fridge looks beautiful! Immaculate surface, clean and bright interior. Fashionable acrylic shelving. Clean and modern. A showpiece for the kitchen. And super quiet. Overall this fridge is smaller than my previous one. The tradeoff being from not sticking out as far and having the ice maker space in the fridge mean less room for food. Also because it is lighter it feels less 'solid'. I worry about lifespan, pump cooling and insulation. There are also some surprising design flaws for being part of a solid brand like Bosch. In short, I would rate it as a good mid-level fridge but priced as a high-end unit, which it is not. The design of the ice maker was a prime reason for my purchase. Breaking the functions into two pieces - the freezer and the dispenser seems more reliable to me. I don't know about in practice - the unit is still very new. Crushed ice is great. I think that the engineers did a good job with the shelves around the dispenser, given the tradeoff. The limited space makes it easy to see and grab condiments and cokes. I even use the tiny butter stick slot across the top. Eggs would have been better if there was not a freeze risk. The shelves in the right-hand door are a problem. They hang from little 'buttons' built into the door, but rather than putting buttons all the way and letting me arrange the shelves, the engineers put them in three areas with some flexibility. This prevents me from buying and adding a fourth shelf in an already smallish unit. Features - the 'Fresh' option is a gimmic. It just sets the fridge to the optimal temp - 36degrees. I love the white LED control panel when you open the doors. Astonishingly - there is no option to show current fridge and freezer temps. I like the stainless steel rear wall. I feel that helps to hold a reserve amount of 'cold'. I'm not personally a fan of 'quiet' as a driving design feature. I'd rather have a powerful pump that I can hear if it is working hard. The initial cool down took over half a day, even with super-chill enabled for both freezer and fridge. The cold water dispenser is poorly done. It points backwards - which prevents shooting water onto the floor but also prevents using it to fill large-mouthed containers like drink pitchers. More critically, it also drips after disengaging. The spill tray is alway wet - constant wet is bad for health. I kinda worry that it may have prostate problems. And one small detail - my previous fridge doors were *not* magnetic! All photos, shopping list etc were stuck to the side of the fridge. I'm so happy to have a pictures of my family cluttering the beautiful face of this fridge.

Refrigerator is great looking and shows no fingerprints. The slight textured look is nice. Good capacity in both fridge and freezer. Plenty of freezer space- more than I thought. Only criticism is I wish the ice maker bin was larger and speed a bit faster

Bosch 500 series french door refrigerator

Love this fridge! I like the fact that I don't have to replace the water filter, I can purchase a reusable filter instead. I love the black stainless steel finish! It's beautiful, easy to keep clean and doesn't show fingerprints.

Nice design, but broke in the first 3 months.

I like the space saving design of the interior, but it broke before it was even 3 months old. The temperature was swinging wildly in both the fridge and freezer compartments. The earliest a warranty authorized repair person in my area could fit me in, wasn't for another month. When he finally came out, he fixed the temperature issue (replaced the faulty thermistor), but misaligned the door when he put it all back together, scraping the finish off the top of the freezer door. It has been a very disappointing experience. I would expect that when I spend several thousand dollars on an appliance, it should just work.
