Intelligent basket design for all types of dishes
You'll be astounded by the various options enabling all sorts of crockery and cutlery to be accommodated. The baskets can be pulled out safely from any angle thanks to the truly elegant handle. Cups sit securely on the FlexCare cup rack's non-slip surface. Bowls fit perfectly into the split hinged row of spikes. And your precious wine glasses? The silicone buffers in the FlexCare glass holder take good care of them.
Gentle cleaning of delicate glassware
Brilliant GlassCare washes glasses gently. The Gentle programme cleans at just 45 °C. The FlexCare glass holder with soft silicone cushioning holds wine glasses gently but securely. Patented AutoOpen drying opens the dishwasher door automatically at the end of a programme cycle. Glasses are dry, they do not have to be polished manually – and our perfectly matched cleaning products with glass protection formula provide the best possible care.
Optimum drying with less energySensor
Dry intelligently adapts the programme for excellent drying results and to prevent damage to kitchen furniture. A sensor checks the load and measures the temperature inside the chamber and the room temperature. The programme is then adapted accordingly, e.g. by modifying the final rinse temperature. The aim: to stop condensation forming on cabinets and to reduce energy consumption and running time without compromising on consistent drying.
