Launched to great acclaim at Milan’s Eurocucina last year (2012) Smeg’s professional series domestic dishwashers are the first in the world to do a full wash in just 16 minutes, using only 12 litres of water!
An innovative Dual Core system is the breakthrough behind the super-fast wash – giving you double the speed when you need it – perfect for when you’re entertaining! During everyday use, the professional series dishwashers conserve both energy and water with a four Star Energy and a five Star WELS and rating.
The appliance has two motors, like existing Smeg models, but the Dual Core wash motor in this appliance is a larger 2000 watts with an integrated element that can operate at variable speeds. It also has two 1800 watt inline elements to heat the water instead of just one as in other domestic machines giving excellent washing performance in a fraction of the time taken for all other dishwasher cycles.
Flexibility is still at the core of the Smeg design – the dishwasher takes a full 15 place settings and has a selection of five domestic wash programmes and four professional programmes that include Soak, NormalECO, ECO, Auto 60º and Ultraclean with a choice of four washing temperatures – 45ºC, 50ºC, 65ºC and 75ºC.
The dishwasher’s numerous ‘smart’ features establish a new benchmark in dishwasher technology, and the exclusive FlexiDuo third basket that introduces an unrivalled degree of versatility to the appliance. This upper basket, designed to take cutlery and cooking utensils, is split into two sections that can be separated and one slid under the other. This frees space in the basket below to take very tall-stemmed glasses, vases and containers while still allowing the cutlery baskets to be fully loaded. Likewise the appliance’s lower basket has fully adjustable inserts, two of which can be completely removed, to introduce extra space for large pans, platters and serving dishes.
The aesthetic design of this dishwasher also deserves special mention. Check out the beautifully sleek anti-fingerprint stainless steel styling, the ultramarine blue interior light and the self-balancing door hinges.
Smeg offers two designs in its Domestic Pro Line, the DWAUP364X 60cm built-in dishwasher (RRP $3490), and the DWAFIP364 fully integrated model (RRP $3290).
