The previous model of Bosch’s inexpensive Serie 4 machine surprised us away by delivering top-notch washing performance for not much money, contrary to expectations.
The WAN28201GB was the previous model we evaluated, and it sailed through our latest Expert Reviews test, earning a coveted five stars and a Best Buy award for both price and efficiency.
The manner it performed, especially at 40 and 60 degrees Celsius, astounded our testers.
In fact, it outperformed some machines that cost twice as much.
Unfortunately, the WAN28201GB appears to have run out of stock, and the similar-sounding WAN28281GB has taken over.
The stats are all the same as the previous model, with a hefty 8kg drum capacity and 1,400rpm spin speed, but a closer look at the product photographs on Bosch’s site reveals that the drum shape has changed to resemble the fancier type formerly exclusively found on Bosch’s higher-end machines.
We’re still waiting for the entire set of test results from our review unit, but it appears that Bosch has found yet another winner.
You can’t go wrong with this model if you want superb cleaning performance and don’t mind a bit noisier and less power efficient model than the pricier Serie 6 Bosch below.
