Retailer Sears unveiled the Kenmore Elite Oasis SteamCare dryer and Oasis washer at the International Builders Show.

Kenmore Elite's SteamCare technology, first introduced in the HE(5t) Steam Dryer in 2007, harnesses the power of steam by saturating dry clothing with a fine mist of water while simultaneously heating the interior of the appliance. The water and heat work together to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and odors.

The new Oasis(HT) washer has features like gentlewash technology to clean delicate items and Catalyst Cleaning Action to help ensure bright whites. The TimedOxi option, available in a top load model for the first time through Oasis(HT), releases oxygen-based stain fighters for stain-fighting performance. Additionally, the washer is certified by the National Sanitization Foundation to eliminate 99.9% of certain bacteria found in clothes, sheets and towels.

The Oasis(HT) washer's Invizible Agitator sits low in its drum, allowing more space for clothing or bulky items like comforters and winter coats. The Oasis washer has 4.6 cubic feet of cleaning space that cleans up to 24 bath towels in a single load. Also available in the Oasis(ST) dryer, the 7.4 cubic feet capacity ensures that a full load from the washer will be effectively dried.

The Oasis(HT) and Oasis(ST) pair will be available in white in March 2008 at for the regular retail price of $1,099. SteamCare and energy efficiency are also available in the HE(5t) Steam Laundry pair in white and the designer color, barolo. Prices range from $1,499 to $1,599 for washers and $1,199 to $1,299 for dryers, depending on color. Base pedestals retail for $259.99 each in color and $229.99 each in white.
