Best way to hook up dishwasher hot water?


I have a Bosch dishwasher and I have 3/8" compression outlet ready to go.
Should I trust and buy the generic SS braided lines that has the rubber compression seal? (I call them fake compression) The DW side uses a pipe thread I think.

I was thinking about 3/8" copper tubing but I am afraid to put stress on the shut off valve (vibration from the dishwasher, maybe)

The braided dishwasher line kits have all the fittings needed, and work just fine. Soft copper is hard to bend without kinks and more work if service is needed.

The DW should have a 90 on it that goes from pipe to compression. The braided hose will be fine.
