Building on its existing home appliance product portfolio, LG Electronics, a global consumer products manufacturer, unveiled the company's first dishwasher line for the U.S. market. The new product line is being showcased for the first time at the 2005 International Builders' Show in Orlando, FL, U.S.
In addition to being one of the quietest dishwashers on the market, the new LG dishwasher features one of the largest tub capacities available in the U.S.-fitting 16-place settings, versus the standard 12 or 14 available, according to the company.
"LG is committed to delivering a broad variety of premium, high-quality, and high-performance home appliance solutions to consumers. With the introduction of our dishwasher line, we are staying true to our word," said Teddy Hwang, president of Digital Appliances for LG Electronics, U.S.A. "Our dishwasher line is in a league of its own -- as our latest innovations are one of the quietest models on the market, and also offer one of the largest capacities to consumers."
With the recent consumer trend of "hiving," LG believes more people are being socially active and entertaining within their homes. These dishwashers are available in semi- and fully-integrated exterior models in a variety of finishes. The semi-integrated models feature digital display controls on the outside door, while the fully-integrated versions have the digital display on the outside door and controls hidden on top of the door for a more 'polished' look.
The company says its dishwasher line is also energy-efficient and low in water consumption. The products feature a soil level sensor that determines the number of rinses needed, and the zone cleaning option allows for washing in the upper or lower decks only to conserve water.
LG's new dishwasher models also feature a large loading capacity: 10-in top rack and 14-in lower rack, or 12-in on both the upper and lower racks. Other features include wide LED display, removable tines, and adjustable upper rack, three separate cutlery baskets, strong, normal, and soft water jets allows for delicate washing, sanitary rinse, and high-drying efficiency by combined condensation and fan drying, resulting in faster drying with reduced spotting.
