Energy, Time and Space Saving Integrated Dishwashers

By: Braeg Heneffe

Most of the dishwashers in Neff's current range are fully integrated versions, but they do a few semi- integrated dishwashers as well. The Neff integrated dishwashers are designed to accept a full furniture door, which is able to conceal the whole appliance, including the control panel. The integrated dishwashers are easy to fit and will blend in with the rest of your kitchen.

As well as the general and basic features that you usually get with an average dishwasher, i.e. on and off buttons, some of the?models have extra added features such as the VarioFlex baskets with RackMatic. These allow a flexible way to wash your pots and pans as they can be adjusted to enable different sized and shaped items to be stacked and placed easily. This also allows you to wash large items such as casserole dishes and large pans.

If you are looking at getting a fully fitted Neff dishwasher it may be because you are attempting to save space in your kitchen. As well as the standard sized dishwashers there are also slim line dishwashers available that only measure in at 45cm so that it can be slotted into a much smaller space.

If height is the issue then the height adjustable dishwashers might be of more interest to you.? T his installation option is available on two of the versions - the S55T59 model and the S5555 model. They are height adjustable from 860mm to 920mm, which allows an extra five centimetres of interior space for you to use however you wish.

Neff always produce energy efficient kitchen appliances and their dishwashers are no exception. Dishwashers are proven to use less electricity and water than washing up by hand so the dishwashers already had a head start there. But as well as that there are certain added built in features that make the appliances more energy efficient. One of the features that are available on some of the machines is HydroSensor, which allows water from the first rinse cycle to be re-used in subsequent rinse cycles if it is clean enough. This feature can save you up to 4.5 litres of water per wash and the alternating spray arms can also reduce the amount of water that is consumed by up to 25%.

There are also specific programmes that are aimed at saving energy and water. All of the Neff integrated dishwashers have an economy programme, which use less water and less energy than on a standard wash. Not all of the models, however, have the heat exchanger system. This feature reuses the heat that is generated during the wash cycle to heat the water that is used for the rinse cycle that comes afterwards. This means that no additional energy is needed for the drying cycle. Also not available on all of the Neff integrated dishwashers is the reduced time programme, which is different from the economy programme in that it does not use less water, but cleans your dishes in a fraction of the time, which saves time and energy
