Smeg has introduced its new Diamond Series tall tank dishwashers with washability, flexibility and stackability at the forefront.

The Diamond Series, available in underbench, semi-integrated and fully integrated models, are manufactured in Italy and feature Smeg’s planetary wash system, DryAssist for perfect drying with less energy and 6-star WELS rating.

The dishwashers also incorporate a redesigned cutlery basket with increased capacity and stability with new telescopic runners; central detergent dispenser with sliding easy release lid; and inverter motor to vary spray pressure, catering to new wash programs as well as offering lower noise emissions.

New programs include Sterilise that removes 99.9% of germs, ideal for baby bottles and cutting boards; Crystal for fine glassware and china; and Full Express 60 that delivers a wash and dry in one hour.

Smeg Australia managing director, Wayne Campbell said, “We are excited to expand our premium Diamond Series dishwasher collection in a milestone year as we celebrate 50 years of dishwashing excellence with industry leading innovation and much anticipated programs such as Sterilise and Crystal. We will continue to set new standards in the category with our signature form and function to ensure dishwashing is easier and more efficient than ever before.”

Smeg is offering a five-year plus 10-year motor warranty on the collection priced at $1,990 and available from major appliance retailers.
