Whirlpool launches new dishwashers with PowerDry option

* Whirlpool-Powerdry.jpgWhirlpool has launched some impressive new top of the range dishwashers for 2014 for both its built-in and freestanding collections. The new 6th Sense PowerClean dishwashers have a clever PowerDry option, which makes them the No.1 in cleaning and drying in just one hour.

As we witnessed during Wednesday's launch, this PowerDry option makes clouds of steam a thing of the past when you open the door after dishwashing - and everything, including plastic items, is perfectly dry and ready to put away! The machines are incredibly quiet too...

The improved performance is achieved by way of a new and innovative technology, which delivers outstanding drying results thanks to a new dual airflow feature and humidity-condensing fan that activates during drying. This latest innovation makes it possible to offer a complete wash and dry programme in just one hour.

As if that weren't enough, the new dishwashers detect and sense the grime, and automatically adjust the water usage and manage the temperature and length of the programme. This all saves up to 50% of water, energy and time.

The 'A+++' energy rated freestanding and integrated models are equipped with 28 PowerClean jets situated at the rear of the dishwasher, dedicated to the removal of burnt on food to ensure that pre-washing is a thing of the past. Stacking dishes vertically creates and additional bonus of up to 40% more space in the lower basket.

The dishwashers offer some of the most flexible loading options available due to sturdier baskets that pull out more easily and steadily. The flexi-load system has six foldable areas in the lower basket and another four in the upper basket, which is also height adjustable and removable and can be pulled out fully for loading and unloading.

It oozes minimalism, with an integrated handle inset into the flat stainless steel door, which is offset by a subtle curvature of the door for an elegant and contemporary style. The new design fits perfectly with the Whirlpool Absolute collection refrigerators.

As the machines are so quiet, Whirlpool has incorporated a light that glows from underneath during operation, enabling busy users to see at a glance when they're able to unload.

Neil Austin Trade Marketing Manager said: "Whirlpool has taken an important leap forward with the PowerDry concept. We are constantly looking for new ways to make our appliances simpler to use and life easier for our consumers through genuine technological advancements. The improved drying efficiency on our PowerDry models answers a major consumer requirement and proves that plastic items can be dried in a dishwasher and you can steam ahead without the steam."
