SYDNEY, NSW: The ActiveWater Smart dishwasher has earned the “Best of the Best” award as decided by the German Design Council in two trade shows in Cologne, Germany.

The ActiveWater Smart dishwasher won the Interior Innovation Award at the home furnishing industry trade shows, the “imm cologne” and “LivingKitchen”, held earlier this month.

The dishwasher is 45 centimetres high, which Bosch says makes its installation in the kitchen seamless and flexible. It also uses only 7.2 litres of water for a normal wash cycle and includes features such as VarioSpeed, ExtraDry, HygienePlus and IntensiveZone.

Meanwhile, on 1 March 2011 Bosch will be unveiling a new Bosch Brand Experience Centre in Perth where technological advancements will be showcased including HydroBaking and 3D Hot Air Plus.

The Bosch ActiveWater Smart compact dishwasher is available in Australia at RRP $1,199 for the 45-centimeter SKE53M05AU and RRP $1,399 for the 60-centimeter SCE53M05AU.
