KitchenAid Adds Classic Twist to New Dishwashers

Posted by at 10:40 pm on April 20, 2010

Drawing inspiration from designs that helped establish the brand as a dishwasher leader and innovator, KitchenAid has introduced a new version of the recessed door handle found on models from past decades.

“We built so many innovations into this dishwasher that when it came to looking for new improvements we found ourselves revisiting a handle design that many consumers told us they remember fondly,” said Debbie O’Connor, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. “Of course, we’ve updated the design to make it more contemporary,” she adds.

The high performance EQ Wash System utilizes pressure-optimizing wash arms that provide concentrated wash performance. Its variable speed motor is designed to automatically adjust power based on water conditions to maximize energy efficiency while reducing motor noise.   With sound levels as low as just 41 dBA, the models feature up to 13 points of sound dampening to eliminate noise from the motor and wash arms, while also blocking the path of noise through the dishwasher. The array of sound deadening materials ranges from insulation blankets to door shields to help contain operating noises.

A ProWash Cycle has a sensor in the cycle to determine the appropriate wash cycle during the pre-rinse, adjusting for the best cleaning performance. A ProDry option utilizes a dedicated drying system and fan to ensure dishes are dry at the end of the wash cycle.   Additional features found on the SuperbaSeries EQ models include a third-level culinary tool rack that offers a dedicated space for cleaning hard-to-fit culinary tools. Superba Series EQ dishwashers are up to 57% more efficient than the minimum federal energy standards, making them eligible for energy rebates in select states.

The new model will be available this fall in stainless steel at a suggested retail price of $1,549.
