World's largest dishwasher unveiled
Bosch unveiled the world's largest dishwasher on London's Southbank last weekend. Measuring 50 times larger than an average dishwasher, this interactive experience gave visitors the chance to walk through a wall of water and stay perfectly dry.
Using 2,000 litres of recycled water falling at a rate of 44 litres per minute, a cascade of water was created. However, as visitors tentatively walked towards the curtain of continuously flowing water, state-of-the art motion sensors responded to their presence and movement, automatically stopping the flow of water as they stepped under it.
The 4.9m high installation was created to launch Bosch's new #PerfectDry dishwasher, which uses natural Zeolith minerals to dry the dishes - drying dishes as perfectly as it cleans, meaning that plates, pans, glasses and even plastic items come out of the dishwasher perfectly dry and cupboard ready.
"Our giant dishwasher installation was about showcasing how our new PerfectDry dishwasher achieves the seemingly impossible - washes all dishes, pots, pans, glassware and even plastics but leaves them perfectly dry," says Charlotte Moran, group marketing manager, Bosch Home Appliances.
"By allowing visitors to control the water inside our giant dishwasher, people experienced the control, convenience and peace of mind that Bosch's home appliances offer.
"At Bosch, we create products that make our consumers' lives easier, giving them more time to do the things they enjoy so we hope the installation will do just that - give them something to enjoy!"
Spot prizes were given to lucky visitors to the installation, visitors were able to pose for selfies, which could be posted with the hashtag #PerfectDry and there was the opportunity to learn more about Bosch's clever PerfectDry technology.
