First came the 14-place-setting dishwasher (1970), then the first semi-professional dishwasher, and then the first 6-star WELS rating appliance (2013). Now, Smeg has another first to add to the list, releasing the world’s most advanced dishwasher. Better still, here in Australia, we get to experience it ahead of the rest of the world.
The dishwasher’s new technology delivers the most intense water coverage of any dishwasher. An energy efficient single wash arm rotates through two axes, boosting the wash pattern density (meaning squeaky clean dishes) while using only 9.8 litres for a full wash. Add an all-white LED internal light and an extremely versatile flexi-dup cutlery tray and you’ll want to throw dinner parties all the time (I know I would).
The premium Diamond model is fully integrated featuring a sleek, hands-free, push-to-open door – the appliance is so quiet Smeg have built in a light designed to flash on the floor when it is in operation.
In addition to the five Diamond models in Smeg’s new dishwasher collection (which are all made in Italy), there are 16 wash models that offer a wide choice of features and programs, water and energy efficiency and wash tank size.
Features include Smart Dry, where the door opens at the end of the cycle to help drying and save energy; Active Acquastop to completely remove the risk of flooding by ensuring there is no build up of water pressure in the hoses when the appliance is not in use; and Quick fast programs including a fast wash of just 27 minutes. Smeg has also introduced its optional Safe Stemware glass racks that fit into the bottom basket of the dishwashers and securely hold both the glasses and the stems to remove the risk of chipping or breaking during the wash process.
These 15-place-setting gems are available nationally from leading appliance retailers.
