[KBIS 2008 Preview]
The new GE Profile dishwasher is the second generation of its SmartDispense dishwasher with deep steam cleaning feature. As its predecessor. the GE Profile SmartDispense2 dishwasher stores the contents of an entire 47 ounce bottle of liquid or gel detergent and dispenses depending on water hardness, cycle selection, and soil level of dishes. The new GE dishwasher now offers a Deep Clean Wash program for heavily soiled dishes. The program incorporates steam to help rid dishes of the most difficult messes, such as starches, eggs, rice, peanut butter and oatmeal. Hot vapor is forced through tiny pinholes under high pressure, virtually melting away soils on the dirtiest dishes. GE also equips this Profile dishwasher with a pure steam prewash option that helps pretreat dishes, leaving china and crystal sparkling and virtually streak-free. SmartDispense technology allows for dispensing detergent throughout the wash cycle. This is the only dishwasher on the market with this technology. By pairing the SmartDispense technology with the BrilliantClean towerless wash system with CleanSensor, the GE dishwasher is able to sense details about every load, adjusting cycle time and water temperature to get dishes remarkably clean. Dishwasher also looks very stylish with the new blue colored racking, featuring an adjustable upper rack and an enhanced silverware basket. Available with top controls hidden, or a sleek front control panel, the dishwasher comes in stainless steel, black or white finishes, or in a custom-panel-ready option. Prices for GE Profile SmartDispense2 dishwasher range from $1,130 to 1,400, and all models will be available in August 2008. Previously, GE Cafe dishwasher.
