What drives us
Our mission is to enhance lives by creating tools for a quiet, healthy and stylish home: appliances that are reliable, efficient and a joy to use – for more peace of mind in everyday life.
Design that delights
“We define our own rules at Bosch. Because our design is very functional and pure, there is little room for formal gadgetry,” explains Bosch Home Appliances’ principal designer Robert Sachon. “The individual elements are therefore of even more fundamental importance.” Multiple awards each year show that he and his team are on the right track.
Commitment to quality
Already in 1886, founder Robert Bosch considered less-than-perfect quality “intolerable”. For us today, premium quality means high-end materials and first-class expertise, every step of the way: from the first design, to the tiniest spare part, to our award-winning customer service network.
Innovative by nature
Prolific innovation is in our DNA. In 2016 alone, we submitted close to 900 patent applications in the home appliance sector. But our innovations aren’t just gimmicks; they deliver real benefits. Just look at our PerfectCook cooking sensor. It measures the temperature of what’s inside your pan and adjusts the setting of your cooktop accordingly. Your pasta will never boil over again.
From production to packaging, every aspect of our business is sustainable – without compromising on performance and design. In fact, our home appliances are among the most efficient and economical in the world. Just one example: since 1990, we have cut the water consumption of our appliances by 59%. Innovations like i-DOS, a washing machine feature that automatically adds the right amount of detergent and water to each cycle, make it possible.
A partner you can count on
Bosch appliances are built to last, even being handed down from one generation to the next. But reliability extends beyond our products. Our award-winning customer service provides peace of mind and expert support – whether you’re planning a family kitchen or a large residential project.

Paving the way to smart homes, Bosch Home Connect links household appliances to handheld devices via Wi-Fi. Our innovative open platform features rigorous security and privacy standards and is increasingly used by third-party suppliers, as well.
A legacy of innovation
Explore some highlights of our history.
Cleaner, faster, smarter
As Europe’s number-one home appliance brand, you can count on Bosch performance to make your everyday life easier. Our home appliances have always offered technical perfection and absolute reliability. Now they’re smart-home-ready, too.
The world’s first combined washer-dryer entered the market over four decades ago, bringing ease into the laundry room with a polyester-friendly spin cycle and a non-stop programme. Transferring heavy, wet laundry was a thing of the past.
Pioneer in refrigeration
In 1933, Bosch’s first electric refrigerator entered the market, followed in 1952 by our first kitchen machine and, six years later, our first washing machine. Common household tasks – storing food, cooking, baking and laundry – now entailed much less effort.
How it all began
Robert Bosch always acted on the belief that honest workmanship is more important than temporary gain. In 1886, he founded his first engineering workshop in Stuttgart, Germany, laying the foundation for home appliances that represent utmost in quality, technical perfection and reliability.
