There’s no doubt in our minds that when Josephine Garis Cochran invented the dishwasher in 1886, she created one of the most useful appliances in our lives. It saves our time, it saves our money by not wasting water – and let’s face it – it does a lot better job than we do keeping those dishes clean. But it’s been over 130 years since the first one was created (which is amazing to think about on it’s own), and other than a few design changes and electrical updates – not too much has changed.
Dishwashers are almost standard in every home, or can be retrofit into older homes with relative easy. But not all dishwasher are made the same and as technology advances, you may want to start looking at replacing your old model. Small changes to the design are making them more functional, more eco-friendly and all within the same footprint of your old dishwasher.
If you’re looking forward to hosting parties this upcoming holiday season, the new Bosch Dishwashers with CrystalDry may be the perfect kitchen upgrade for you, loaded with new features it makes doing the dishes less of a chore every day.
New Features You Will Love
Take a look at your current dishwasher – what is your biggest complaint? For many people it’s the lack of space or flexibility. It’s been standard for years to only have two racks in your dishwasher, one for plates and larger items and a smaller one on the top that can actually hold cups, bowls and small things.
The new Bosch Dishwashers actually have three racks for a more flexible design that actually works with your day to day life. Adding the 3rd rack with its adjustable tines can create the right fit for deep, tall, or uniquely-shaped items, but also means more items can be washed at the same time. With 3 different height levels and up to 9 possible rack positions, you can customize each load for your needs. And all of the racks have the EasyGlide™ system. It’s easy to adjust and move the racks, even while they’re full of dishes.
With a larger capacity, the Bosch dishwashers actually allow you to utilize a full 24 inches of space for your dishes. There’s room for up to 16 place settings. And you can choose from 6 wash cycles including five-level wash, 5 options like Extra Dry, and a concealed heating element.
But one of the best things that Bosch has built into the new dishwashers – leak protection! We’re still dealing with an appliance that is hooked up to your water line, and they know leaks can happen when you least want them to. So they’ve built in 24/7 Aquastop® to protect your floors. This 4-part leak prevention system uses sensors to detect and stop leaks, and can even turn on by itself.
It Wont Wake You Up (or the Baby)
For many people, running the dishwasher at night while they’re sleeping is standard. There is less of a surge pricing on electricity if you run during the off hours – but it also is something that can be done while you are sleeping. Load up the machine during the day, run it at night and wake up to fresh and clean dishes. It’s almost magic how it happens.
But older dishwashers – they’re noisy. Some you can even feel the vibrations in the next room.
This is where the Bosch dishwashers are beating the pack. They come in with an amazingly low 42-dBA noise level rating. Allowing you to wash dishes in peace. Bosch dishwashers are so quiet, you have to check the exterior Infolight® to know they’re on. That means it wont keep you up at night, and its even so quiet you can run it while the kids are napping and not have to worry about noises that will wake them up.
It Will Save You Time and Money
Dishwashers, are no doubt, one of the best inventions for the home kitchen. And thankfully, they’re changing with technology as the years go on. Bosch has not introduced their CrystalDry™ technology on their 800 series dishwashers. Offering the ultimate dry and clean on your dishes (no matter what they are made of). CrystalDry will use up to 176 degree heat to dry your items so they’re clean and ready when they come out of the dishwasher. And using the sanitize option – the dishwasher will kill up to 99% of bacteria that may be hiding on your dishes.
They’ve packed in PrecisionWash which actually scans your load of dishes and makes sure that every item is washed and sprayed with the power it needs. What does that actually mean? It means that your dishes are washed right the first time – which means no re-washing them or wasting more water to get your items clean.
But one of the best things, every Bosch dishwasher is ENERGY STAR qualified and meets or exceeds federal guidelines, for year-round energy savings. That means, less electricity is being used reducing the cost on your power bill each month.
The new Bosch dishwashers not only help reduce your power consumption, but also water use by allowing you to fit more dishes in each load and making sure everything is washed correctly the first time. Technology has changed a lot since the first dishwasher was invented, and even in the past ten years. Isn’t it time to bring the latest in technology into your kitchen?
