Laundry care redefined: Bosch expands its premium appliance class with the ambitious new HomeProfessional line
NEW: HomeProfessional – the new premium segment with washing machine and dryer
NEW: Record energy savings: maximum energy efficiency meets high performance and comfort
NEW: Perfectly matched washing machine and dryer design
Munich – In autumn 2011, Bosch is expanding into the premium laundry care segment by adding new washing machines and dryers to its HomeProfessional product line. In addition to the pioneering design, a number of innovative details and program features promise the best washing and drying results with the maximum level of energy efficiency. The premium washing machine starts off with two models that meet the new EU labeling: one model is rated in the A+++ energy efficiency class and the other model outperforms the best energy efficiency class A+++ once again by 30 percent, which is why it is called the "world champion in energy savings *). The dryers also come in two special energy-saving models – "A -50%“ and "A -60%“. The latter is also justified in being called the "energy-saving world champion" due to its very low power consumption.
Perfectly matched design
The precisely designed "twin" look of the new washing machine and dryer give the duo a distinctive look. The planar edges and overhangs are harmoniously integrated, without unnecessary extras, and give an overall impression of quality and style. The core element of the appliances is the 135-cm-high panel with touch buttons, high-resolution TFT display, illuminated comfort knob selector and the distinctive door. As far as handling is concerned, the intuitive concept of "left to right" operation makes it a snap for users. At the same time, direct selection buttons give a better overview of all washing programs. Further options can be selected via the display. The TFT technology in the machines displays crystal clear contrasts and additionally increases the comfort of the plain text display. The easy-to-read menu leads you step-by-step through the operation, with clear instructions and selection parameters – also with optimum loading and dispensing recommendations. The comfortable knob selector is also a new feature that uses LEDs to display the selected program. Its first-class, flat design with an integrated On/Off switch gives you the best possible overview of the situation.
High-tech washing technology
The most modern technology is located inside the machines from the HomeProfessional series. Both models are equipped with the extremely quiet and durable EcoSilence drive, appointed with the Bosch 10-year manufacturer's guarantee. Its brushless drive technology is especially robust for long spin cycles and better washing performance. The proprietary inverter technology also provides for intelligent electronic drive control. In all associated tests, it produced outstanding washing results while consuming extremely low levels of electricity. In order to leverage the flexibility for the respective needs of the laundry and its user, the washing machine features VarioPerfect, which allows the laundry to be done either very quickly – by selecting the SpeedPerfect – or particularly economically – by selecting the EcoPerfect function.
Gentle, low-maintenance, economical
Both appliance groups in the new HomeProfessional generation of washing machines and dryers work with an innovative door concept. The idea behind it: The door is particularly easy to open and close and all appliances have the same uniform design and look. The dryer's self-cleaning condenser, which helps energy efficiency by preventing lint buildu
