Electrolux launches three new dishwashers, packed with product innovation, at KBIS 2017

10 January, 2017

Dishwasher line features new drying, cleaning and organization technology

ORLANDO, FL, January 10, 2017 – At a time when the dishwasher market is in need of innovation, research points to consumer dissatisfaction with performance showing that 49 percent of steel tub consumers report dishes are not dry at the end of the cycle (1). In response to this, today at the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), the Electrolux Group launched a new dishwasher line across its Frigidaire Gallery®, Frigidaire Professional® and Electrolux portfolio that offers solutions to the top three consumer needs: excellent drying, reliable cleaning performance and flexible organization.

Drying Performance

With a focus on drying performance, the new dishwasher line delivers innovative technology across the portfolio. For Frigidaire® Gallery and Frigidaire® Professional, the brands introduce EvenDry® – a more effective fan-assisted drying system that draws moisture out and ensures dishes come out remarkably dry every time. The new Electrolux dishwasher features Perfect Dry™ – a system that circulates air evenly for an exceptional dry you can rely on.

“At Electrolux, we pride ourselves on continuing to deliver innovative products and solutions that truly meet our consumers’ needs,” said John Weinstock, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Electrolux North America. “They want dry dishes at the end of the cycle. This new line of dishwashers is testament to our commitment to listening to their feedback and to staying at the forefront of innovation.”

Dish Organization

In response to the consumer need for more flexible organization, The Frigidaire Gallery® and Frigidaire Professional® line offers a Second Rack that adjusts to fit tall pots and pans – perfect for family gatherings. In addition, the Electrolux dishwasher features a removable 3rd Rack, allowing consumers to have extra space to fit every culinary tool and serving utensil.

Cleaning Performance

What’s more, 45 percent of consumers reported they often experience food residue on dishes after cleaning1. These new dishwashers include a series of innovations to deliver cleaning performance. Frigidaire Gallery® and Frigidaire Professional® are equipped with the OrbitClean® Wash System, which offers complete cleaning performance with 4x better wash coverage 2, ensuring clean and ready-to-use dishes every time. Additionally, the Electrolux branded dishwasher includes the new innovative LuxCare™ Wash Arm, which delivers more water coverage than traditional spray arms2, while two targeted wash zones deliver a targeted wash to the most challenging dishes.
