The latest KitchenAid dishwashers offer better washing results, higher energy efficiency and one of the industry lowest sound level. The new collection includes 3 unique series – top-of-the-line Superba Series EQ, a core Superba Series, and the Classic Series, all available beginning in early spring 2009.
The premium Superba Series EQ dishwashers feature the high performance EQ Wash System, which delivers excellent results combined with the lowest sound levels in the industry. KitchenAid equips these dishwashers with pressure-optimizing wash arms that provide superior, concentrated wash performance, as well as a variable speed motor that automatically adjusts power based on water conditions to maximize energy efficiency while reducing motor noise. At just 41 dBA, the Superba Series EQ is the industry quietest dishwasher. Featuring up to 13 unique points of sound dampening, these dishwashers eliminate noise from the motor and wash arms, while also blocking the path of noise through the dishwasher. The array of sound deadening materials ranges from insulation blankets to door shields to contain operating noises. Additional premium features found on the top-of-the-line Superba Series EQ models include the third-level Culinary Tool Rack that offers a dedicated space for cleaning hard-to-fit culinary tools and CEE Tier II energy qualification. Superba Series EQ dishwashers with CEE Tier II qualification are 56% more efficient than the minimum federal energy standards, which make them eligible for energy rebates in select states. Suggested retail prices for the Superba Series EQ will range from $1,400 to $1,600, depending on the model.
The Superba Series dishwasher line includes industry-leading performance innovations along with varying features to suit individual clean-up needs. KitchenAid dishwashers in the series features the exclusive ProScrub option that uses 36 targeted spray jets to provide highly effective cleaning for baked-on messes. The dishwashers also feature a powerful built-in hard food disposer that requires no manual cleaning and eliminates the need to pre-rinse dishes. To offer increased versatility in accommodating a variety of dishwasher loads, Superba Series dishwashers include an array of premium loading options including adjustable upper racks, a culinary caddy utensil basket, fold down rows in the upper racks, and an extra-large silverware basket. Suggested retail prices on these models range from $750 to $1,400.
