High performance in a small package: Bosch presents the new ActiveWater 45 line
For the first time, ActiveWater technology in a 45-cm-wide appliance
New technology: the DuoPower™ double spray arm and the EcoSilenceDriveTM
Energy efficiency classes A+ and A++
Munich – Bosch continues with its strategy of high-performance, economical dishwashers, and expands its product range for new target groups: In September 2011, the company will launch a new generation of 45-cm-wide, ActiveWater dishwashers. The series has everything that sets Bosch's modern household appliances apart: best possible performance, measured by optimum cleaning and drying results, low water and electricity consumption in energy efficiency classes A+ and A++, comfortable and easy loading with the VarioFlex tray featuring the 3-way Rackmatic, and generous amounts of space thanks to the VarioRack for up to 10 sets of dishes.
The right solution for any household
Even small households want to save electricity and water. And they want to do it without sacrificing performance and convenience. From students and bachelors to single elderly people, anyone thinking of buying a dishwasher also wants it to make economical and ecological sense, even for smaller quantities of dishes. In many other kitchens, there is a need to replace the 45-cm appliances. The old machines are getting on in years or they just don't provide the performance or efficiency required these days. Bosch has the solution for all of these customer needs. The ActiveWater 45 generation washes without compromise using the latest technology and is still slim enough to fit in even the smallest kitchen.
The latest dishwashing technology – "Made in Germany"
The advanced ActiveWater system is the secret behind Bosch's new dishwashers. Expressed differently: well engineered "Green Technology inside" – Made in Germany. From the delicate sensors and intelligent hydraulic pumps to the new EcoSilence TM drive technology, the development expertise at Bosch continues to produce top performance and efficiency. Additional innovations also improve the line: The new slim dishwashers feature DuoPowerTM, a double spray arm in the top tray. This distributes water even more uniformly inside the machine, using each drop as efficiently as possible to clean even the dishes in the most difficult corners of the interior. On top of that, the brushless EcoSilenceDriveTM motor consistently provides for minimal electricity consumption. It is an efficient, frictionless and silent motor with a long life cycle due to its non-wear design – yet another contribution to sustainability because, ultimately, the life cycle of your dishwasher depends on the durability of the individual components. Overall, ActiveWater appliances consume an average of eight to nine liters of water and 0.78 or 0.75 kWh of electricity for each wash cycle.
Spacious, flexible and easy to use
ActiveWater 45 appliances are not just especially economical, they also provide loads of space, ease of use and flexibility. In addition to the two dish racks, some of the new models feature the VarioRack, a third tray designed for small dishes and cutlery. Instead of nine, now ten sets of dishes can be cleaned in one cycle. Further convenience is provided by the dish racks, as each model can be easily adapted to suit your needs thanks to the Rackmatic, Vario, VarioFlex or VarioFlexPlus tray systems. The dishwashing programs are also flexible, and can be adjusted for either time or purpose: short programs, VarioSpeed, half loads, hygiene cycle or the optional IntensiveZone. All of these functions
