Superbly gentle laundry – you’ll feel the difference
Munich – The brand new HomeProfessional laundry line from Bosch, coming in autumn 2011 and already setting new benchmarks in the synthesis of design, functionality and savings. But the company is not stopping there. Bosch is using the occasion to present its newest flagship model: the i-DOS® HomeProfessional washing machine.
There's no doubt about it: i-DOS® from Bosch, which was introduced one year ago in the Logixx8 washing machine, has been welcomed with open arms by consumers. It was hardly a surprise, though. i-DOS® was the solution to a question that was unanswered for too long. The question: How do I consistently gauge my laundry to get the optimum cleaning result, use the least amount of detergent, water and electricity, and prevent any sort of irritation on my skin from detergent residue? i-DOS® replaces intuitive, but frequently incorrect, manual dispensing with precision dosages. Precision pumps, integrated into the reservoir, dispense (into the rinse slot) the exact quantity of standard liquid detergent required for optimum results. How much that quantity is, is tailored to the laundry load, the degree of soiling, the water hardness and the washing program selected. For automatic programs, the highly sensitive pressure, diffusion and flow sensors reliably determine the water, temperature and detergent requirements for the laundry and, in combination with the complex dispensing system, select the rest of the washing parameters needed.
"Premium" look and feel
As a member of the HomeProfessional premium design family, i-DOS® from Bosch is now even more attractive: The discerning yet functional design supports the simple usability of the i-DOS® system. The dispensing chambers are identified with a new set of icons, and LEDs indicate precisely which chambers contain liquid detergent or softener. The dosage quantities are also displayed, while the basic dosage settings and the process for filling the dispensing chambers now has a more intuitive design. The tasteful touch buttons, high-resolution TFT display with plain text and the distinctive door give the appliance a sleek appearance. The convenient knob selector is a new feature that uses LEDs to display the selected program while providing a comfortable feel. The high-end flat design gives you an ideal overview of how to operate the appliance, and the main switch in the center has an Auto Power Off mode to turn the machine off automatically after a specified period of time.
Flexible and economical
In addition to the automated i-DOS® system, the newest model also features VarioPerfect washing logic, which allows you to choose between especially fast – SpeedPerfect – and especially economical – EcoPerfect – in nearly every program. This flexibility is only possible due to the extremely quiet and durable EcoSilence Drive. This brushless motor, which Bosch guarantees for 10 years, is particularly robust, enables long spin cycles and provides overall better washing performance. The proprietary Bosch inverter technolo
