CHARLOTTE, N.C. –
Frigidaire offered a free, one-year extended-service agreement on purchases of its new Gallery dishwasher line in May and June as part of a special introductory offer.
The just-launched dishwasher line features a unique soap, soak and rinse system that produces what parent company Electrolux described as “a better clean.” Based on tests, the majap maker also claims that the new models are the best-cleaning and best-drying dishwashers compared to competitors, and are the quietest in their class.
The crux of the system is an OrbitClean spray arm, which operates independently from an upper spray arm and revolves in a large circle around the bottom of the dishwasher. Attached to the arm is a smaller circular sprayer which spins in an opposite spiral. This combination improves cleaning performance by distributing four times more water and detergent throughout the tub, Electrolux said.
The new line also offers enhanced drying performance with a SaharaDry cycle, which eliminates the need to towel-dry before putting dishes away.
Additional features includes sensors that “adapt” the cycle and adjust water pressure based on cleaning needs; an energy saver plus cycle that uses less energy without compromising cleaning performance; a quickclean cycle to clean lightly soiled dishes in less than an hour; a smudge-proof stainless-steel finish; and adjustable racks, an oversized silverware basket and enough capacity to fit up to 14 place settings.
The Energy Star-qualified line was designed, assembled and engineered in the U.S., and is available in stainless steel, white and black finishes at suggested retails of $549 to $649.
