Hisense is making its debut in the Australian dishwasher market, launching a range of freestanding European designed and manufactured dishwashers into JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys stores.

The dishwashers are available in white, stainless steel and black, with an MSRP of $1,099, $1,199 and $1,299, respectively.

A fully digital dual display enables easy navigation between cleaning modes including a 15-minute fast cycle, intensive and self-cleaning program. The three-level wash function with the addition of a new top spray arm better manages water distribution to increase wash performance.

Hisense inverter technology reduces noise levels when in operation, while the brushless motor provides a superior clean while using less energy. The dishwashers carry a 3.5 star energy rating and 4.5 star water rating.

The range features three flexible baskets, up to 16 place settings, dedicated cutlery and kitchen utensil sliding tray and flexible interior that can be reconfigured. Hisense’s unique patented Auto Door Open technology automatically opens the unit’s door slightly at the end of each cycle to ensure washed items dry completely prior to removal by allowing excess steam to escape.

All dishwashers are also equipped with an Aqua Protect System to automatically cut off and drain water supply in the event of leakage or flooding.

Hisense Australia head of marketing, Andre Iannuzzi said the dishwashers are a premium and competitive option for Australians.

“Our customers are looking for high quality home appliances that couple smart, innovative design with features that make life easier. Australians have an affinity with entertaining and quiet often, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Our Hisense dishwashers have been designed to work in harmony with a modern lifestyle, ensuring clean-up is simple, quiet and time-efficient.”
