Premium domestic appliance manufacturer, Miele is a leading name in appliance technology and sustainability and now its dishwashers are scientifically proven for hygiene, too. The current climate has seen a huge surge of interest in hygiene with consumers now actively seeking out ultra-hygienic solutions for the home. Now, Miele has been scientifically certified for its hygiene performance by independent test institutes.

Miele dishwashers were awarded a Proven Hygiene certificate in 2020 (issued by the independent Rhein-Waal Technical University), which confirmed that a Miele model removes more than 99.9% of all bacteria. Now, in 2021, Miele dishwashers have been awarded a further certificate with the Golden Virus Seal for the removal of more than 99.9% of viruses (from the independent institute at the Albstadt-Sigmaringen University). Miele is the first and only company to carry the Golden Virus Seal for dishwashers and is proud to be leading the market for dishwasher hygiene, offering consumers peace of mind for keeping their family and home, safe.

All Miele dishwashers now remove more than 99.9% of all viruses and depending on the programme selected, different types of viruses are removed. However, in all programmes including ECO, enveloped viruses including Influenza and the Coronavirus are removed.

In the Miele QuickPowerWash and PowerWash cycles, Noro and Adeno viruses are deactivated. The best performance is achieved in the Hygiene and Intensive programmes as both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses are removed by more than 99.9%. The Golden Virus Seal is based on the combination of Miele dishwashers being used with Miele’s own advanced detergent systems such as Miele’s auto-dosing PowerDisk or Miele UltraTabs.

Dishwashers play an important role within the home, helping to get rid of viruses and bacteria on crockery and cookware and high temperature wash cycles are increasingly being used. Miele dishwashers offer superior cleaning results and hygienic wash programmes due to their sophisticated wash technology, high temperatures and perfect alignment of water jets.

Sian Bailey, category manager for dishwashing for Miele GB says, “We are so thrilled that Miele dishwashers, when used in conjunction with our own advanced detergents, now offer consumers added peace of mind when it comes to removing viruses and bacteria from their cookware and crockery. A hygienic home is a must for today’s busy lifestyles and the current climate and Miele will always go the extra mile to ensure our customers get the very best and very latest technology to facilitate this.”
