LG DISHWASHER DELIVERS POWERFUL CLEANING WITH TRUESTEAM™
The press release below is a press release issued by LG Electronics Inc. during the IFA Berlin 2014 Consumer Electronics Fair. Please be advised that the availability of products and features shown at IFA are yet to be determined for Australia.
SEOUL, Sep. 4, 2014 — At IFA 2014, LG Electronics (LG) will introduce its latest TrueStream™ equipped dishwasher. The advanced dishwasher will feature LG’s SmartRack™ system with easily adjustable tines and UV lamp technology for greater user convenience and hygiene.
The dishwasher boasts LG’s Inverter Direct Drive technology. This technology directly transfers energy from the motor to the water spray system through a more simplified structure. Together with TrueSteam™, which is activated when the dishwasher’s Steam Power mode is engaged, high-temperature steam from pressurised nozzles is discharged to dislodge tough food particles from dishes and utensils. Temperature and pressure are managed by the built-in steam generator, which is powerful enough to help eliminate burnt or dried food residue. For dishware that requires a softer touch, the Steam Care mode offers a gentler cleaning solution. The dishwasher’s Steam Dual Spray feature allows for different water pressure on the upper and lower racks, making it possible to wash both soft and hard food residues simultaneously.
After the wash cycle is completed, the dishwasher employs a high-tech UV lamp process to target any remaining bacteria. This feature, together with LG’s TrueSteam™ technology, helps to provide more hygienic results and allows tableware to be left inside the dishwasher for up to four hours. The UV sterilization cycle is programmed to run a second time if the dishwasher door is not opened after two hours.
LG’s SmartRack™ system offers greater flexibility and enables the dishwasher to accommodate a wide variety of bowls, pans, platters and other items. All three tiers are designed to hold different types of dishware: the lower rack is suitable for dishes, bowls, pots and pans, while the middle rack is designed for cups and wineglasses. The upper rack is intended for smaller items such as espresso cups, utensils and kitchen tools. The height of the top rack is designed to be easily adjusted to make room for oversized utensils such as spatulas, whisks or salad tongs.
Convenience is further enhanced with LG’s “Silence On” technology, which employs multiple layers of sound dampening insulation to help reduce the dishwasher’s noise level. Additionally, with LG’s Smart Diagnosis™ feature, customer service representatives can quickly and efficiently troubleshoot mechanical issues, limiting costly and inconvenient service visits.
“Many consumers are frustrated with having to clean off every dish and glass before placing them inside the dishwasher,” said Seong-jin Jo, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance Company. “TrueSteam™ technology reduces the need for this step altogether. Our TrueSteam™ dishwashers are quieter than conventional LG models to help create a quiet, peaceful kitchen environment.”
Visitors to IFA 2014 can see LG’s newest dishwasher with TrueStream™ technology for themselves in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5–10.
