DESIGN & INSTALLATION

With a Stainless Steel front and underbench installation, the beautiful Smeg 60cm Underbench Dishwasher is worth the trouble once you see how seamlessly it blends in with your kitchen.

With its Freestanding design, the Haier 60cm Dishwasher is easy to install and can be placed almost anywhere; so you can move it and take it with you when you relocate.

Above: Underbench or Freestanding, there’s a dishwasher style to suit your usage and installation needs.

WASH SYSTEMS

The Orbital Wash System in the Smeg dishwasher boasts a smaller spray arm which spins ten times every time the major arm spins, ensuring water is distributed in-between every dish. Enjoy efficient results thanks to the dishwasher’s SmartDry Natural Drying: at the end of the wash cycle, the door is slightly open enabling steam to escape and dishes to dry naturally.

The Haier dishwasher’s ThermoDry system helps deliver super dry results, even for those difficult-to-dry plastic containers, so you can go from unloading to stacking them right into the cupboards.

PROGRAMS 

Smeg’s 60cm Underbench Dishwasher features 15-place settings; ideal for growing families who have plenty dishes at the end of the day. With 10 wash programs to choose from, there’s a cycle for any type of mess. Had a quiet day? This Smeg dishwasher’s ½ load FlexiZone comfortably washes a half load with reduced consumption.

Small families, coupled or single households will benefit from Haier’s 60cm Freestanding Dishwasher. It’s great for low demand washing with 15-place settings and 6 wash programs that covers a range of essential needs like Eco, Glass and Rinse.

CONTROLS

Smeg’s dishwasher features push button controls, delay start up to 24 hours and a child lock that delivers an easy and safe washing experience. The dishwasher’s cutlery basket and cutlery tray provides greater space to suit all load types.

Haier’s dishwasher can be controlled with the soft touch LED controls which beautifully complements it gorgeous Black front design. Load now and wash later with the delay start up to 24 hours and keep kids from interrupting the cycle with the child lock. A cutlery basket and half tray offers more space for all your cooking and eating utensils.
