I bought a Miele a few years ago, but also looked at the Bosch. Regarding your question about the food grinder: the Miele installer told us the grinders spew little food bits up into the dishwasher and that they are undesirable for that reason. He also told us not to rinse our dishes, because a little detritus is necessary to make the detergent work correctly. We never rinse. I have a three-year-old, which means dishes sit and get crusted with gunk. I put them in for a short rinse cycle to loosen the gunk and then run the regular cycle. Everything gets clean, 98% of the time, and I never, ever do more than scrape off the big pieces and occasionally clean out the trap at the bottom of the machine. I figure the machine uses much less water for a rinse than I would standing at the sink, so I think it's a good deal.
