HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF. –
BSH Home Appliances is having a busy summer with the August rollouts of a breakthrough dishwasher and steam range.
The premium appliance company says its newest, top-of-the line addition to the Bosch 800 Plus dishwasher series, set to hit showroom floors in mid-August, will operate at 39 dBA, setting a new industry low for noise. Bosch, which is already renowned for its quiet dishwashers, was able to further reduce the new Evolution model’s sound levels with an improved motor and dampening technology that softens the sounds of the drain snorkel and the water blast.
The new unit also uses less than 2 gallons of water per cycle and 180kWh/year, which readily qualifies for Energy Start status. Design elements include concealed controls and recessed or bar-style handles. The suggested retail ranges from $1,399 to 2,099, depending on finish and handle.
Meanwhile, BSH’s modern-design Thermador division is introducing what it describes as “the world‘s first kitchen appliance to offer seven distinct cooking options.” Its 48-inch Thermador Pro Grand steam range provides steaming, convection baking, burner cooking, simmering, grilling, griddle cooking and warming by integrating four appliances: a full-function, 1.4-cubic-foot combination steam and convection oven; a 5.1-cubic-foot convection oven; a six-burner gas cooktop and electric grill/griddle option with titanium surface; and a 1.4-cubic-foot warming drawer.
The Pro Grand also houses Thermador cooking exclusives such as its 22,000 BTU Star power burner, and “extra low” simmering technology that cycles the burners off and on to as low as 100 degrees (375 BTU).
Design features include highest-grade stainless-steel construction, signature bull-nose design, commercialstyle gauges and knobs, hydraulic hinges, telescopic racks and Professional-series handles and trim kits to help customize the kitchen.
The range will be available next month at a suggested retail of $13,995.
