LG showcased its latest steam dishwasher equipped with LG’s own TrueSteam™ technology at IFA 2013. LG’s A+++ TrueSteam™ technology promotes powerful cleaning performance while better convenience is made possible with LG’s unique SmartRack™system.
“One of the things that consumers dislike most about their current dishwashers is the frequent need to pre-wash their dishes before placing them in the dishwasher,” said Seong-jin Jo,president and CEO of LG Electronics Home Appliance Company. “However, with TrueSteam™ technology, LG’s TrueSteam™ dishwashers virtually eliminate the need for this step, delivering superior performance as well as convenience to consumers. With noise levels as low as 38dB, the new dishwasher fits into a comfortable and pleasant home environment.”
The TrueSteam™ technology works with the dishwasher’s Steam Power mode, which involves high-temperature steam particles that are discharged from pressure nozzles so that food particles are dispersed. Steam temperature and pressure are managed by the built-in steam generator, which is powerful enough to virtually eliminate tough food residue, including burnt or dried food substances. For delicate dishes, the Steam Care offers a more gentle steam clean. Because there rarely is sufficient quantity of delicate items to fill a single load, the dishwasher’s Steam Dual Spray feature enables different water pressures to be used on the upper and lower racks so that multiple types of dishes can be washed at once to help save water, energy and time.
The SmartRack™ system allows for various rack configurations and option when it comes to dishwasher space organisation. The design feature itself allows the interior of the dishwasher to be more flexible, and offers greater convenience to consumers. It also maximizes usable space and accommodates odd-shaped bowls, pans, platters and other items. All three tiers are designed to contain different types of dishes: the lower rack is suitable for dishes, bowls, pots and pans, while the upper rack is designed for cups and wine glasses. The third rack is intended for items, such as espresso cups, utensils and kitchen tools. In addition, the third rack is height adjustable, which adds flexibility by making room for oversized utensils, such as spatulas, whisks or salad tongs.
he dishwasher’s energy performance(A+++) is enhanced by LG’s Inverter Direct Drive. This motor technology optimizes the power needed for each load by directly transferring energy from the motor to the water spray system through a simplified structure. Where appliance noise is an issue, LG’s Silence On™ technology and layers of sound dampening insulation help reduce the dishwasher’s noise levels to just 38dB.
