Washing dishes is such a chore, isn’t it? You have to stand at the sink, applying vigoroous amounts of soap, water, and elbow grease to try and pry some stubborn specks of food off your nice china. It’s unpleasant, and what’s more, it’s wasteful. Not only does it waste your time, it’s also bad for the planet. Clean dishes aren’t worth the planet. Not when there’s an option.
KitchenAid has been making great advances in dishwashing technology ever since they released their very first dishwashing unit in 1949. With every year, their machines have gotten better, smarter, easier to use, more effective at cleaning, and quieter. Bit by bit, KitchenAid is improving your life.
So what’s in store for 2014 in KitchenAid dishwashers?
Well, the era of pre-rinsing and pre-scrubbing your dishes is rapidly drawing to a close. For decades, we’ve had to wash our dishes before we washed our dishes; well, no more! KitchenAid this year is introducing a brand-new smart wash cycle called ProWash. ProWash will use a water rinse to determine the size of the load, the level of dish soiling, and just exactly how stubborn the mess is, and will then intelligently adjust the wash cycle so that it cleans your dishes perfectly on the first go. And not only that, but it will make sure it uses the most energy- and water-efficient method to do so. So it will get your dishes cleaner than usual faster than usual while using less water and energy than usual. Smashing!
KitchenAid also unveiled their new ProDry system, designed to get your dishes dryer faster, getting you better results than you might receive from competing dishwashers. ProDry hinges on the mingling of dry and humid air to improve drying performance. As the tub cools, the remaining moisture condenses on the stainless steel surface, drawing moisture off the dishes. Combined with the low-profile recessed heating dual-watt element, ProDry is simply more effective at finishing the cleaning job.
Washing has also been made more effective with their new filter-based wash system. This amazing new development features press-optimized wash warms, which pumps water out through jets throughout the entire dishwasher interior, alternating three targeted wash zones for increased washing efficiency. The targeting means that more high-pressure water is project at a single location, doing more effective work at removing tough encrusted bits of food. All this with a self-calibrating wash sensor, like in ProWash above, which keeps track of the wash progress and adjusts the output and performance on the fly, making sure your dishes are being washed right.
What else? Well, KitchenAid dishwashers, always the quietest on the market, are even quieter. The Whisper Quietsystem now reduces noise to a barely audible 39 dBAs, which is quieter than a library. You could operate this thing in the middle of the New York Public Library and never get asked to leave, except for the fact that you are operating a dishwasher; the noise sure wouldn’t be an issue. The noise in a KitchenAid dishwasher will never exceed 46 dBA’s, quieter than a normal conversation, during normal operation.
The ProScrub Trio option features forty water spray jets at the back of the dishwasher which will pump powerful streams at your dishes to remove caked-, seared-, and baked-on food matter with 40% more coverage than the standard ProScrub feature. Kiss pre-soaking goodbye forever.
And aiding in overall efficiency in operation is the new AquaSense Release System. This special system increases water efficiency by re-filtering and re-cleaning water from the last load and uses it instead of fresh-water for the pre-rinse cycle in your next load, storing up to 3.5. quarts of water for re-use in a side tank. This feature will reduce your water usage by up to 33% per load.
