LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2013 – At the 2013 International CES, LG Electronics (LG) is introducing its latest steam dishwasher equipped with LG’s TrueSteam™ technology for powerful cleaning performance that helps eliminate the need for prewashing dishes. The new dishwasher is also equipped with an array of innovative features that greatly enhance convenience for consumers.
“One of the things that consumers say they dislike most about their current dishwashers is the 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. “With TrueSteam™ technology, LG’s dishwashers virtually eliminate the need for this step, delivering superior performance as well as convenience to consumers.”
TrueSteam™ works in the Steam Power mode, which involves high-temperature steam particles that are discharged from carefully aimed pressure nozzles so that food particles are dispersed and dishes are left cleaner. Steam temperature and pressure are managed by the built-in steam generator, which is powerful enough to virtually eliminate even tough food residue, whether burnt or dried. The dishwasher’s cleaning performance is the direct result of LG’s Inverter Direct DriveTM. This advanced motor technology optimizes the power needed for each load by directly transferring energy from the motor to the water spray system.
For dishes that require a softer touch, the Steam Delicate cycle offers a more gentle steam cleaning. Because there may not be a sufficient quantity of delicate items to fill a single load, the dishwasher’s Steam Dual 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.
For greater options when it comes to organizing, the unique EasyRack™ Plus system allows for various rack configurations. This design feature allows the interior of the dishwasher to be more flexible, and offers greater convenience to consumers. The EasyRack™ Plus system 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 wineglasses. 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.
What’s more, Smart Diagnosis™ technology enables consumers to solve minor problems through a smartphone application. If the dishwasher needs repair, pressing the Smart Diagnosis™ button will lead to quick and efficient troubleshooting through direct contact with the customer service center, often eliminating time-consuming and costly service visits.
And LG’s LoDecibel™ technology and layers of sound dampening insulation help reduce the dishwasher’s noise levels, adding convenience to everyday cleaning. With noise levels as low as 42 dB, LG’s dishwasher fits into a comfortable and pleasant home environment.
