Good Housekeeping recognized GE Profile's frontload steam washer with Overnight Ready Cycle with a 2011 Very Innovative Products (VIP) Award.

"The winners of our VIP Awards are chosen from thousands of products," says Miriam Arond, director of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, "Our VIP Award winners are products that are ingenious breakthroughs and solve everyday problems in new and exciting ways."

The washer's innovative Overnight Ready cycle washes clothes, then removes so much moisture that clothes are said to be comfortable to wear without transferring to the dryer. The cycle keeps clothes moving gently for up to eight hours to remove moisture. GE said it was the first unit with the ability to wash small loads on an overnight cycle and designed the cycle tyo help prevent clothes from wrinkling compared to clothes that are left in a standard washer overnight.

When the GE Profile frontload washer with Steam and Overnight Ready is paired with the optional pedestal the owner can activate SmartDispense technology, which stores up to six months of detergent and automatically dispenses detergent and fabric softener based on each load's size, soil level, water hardness and fabric, or cycle type.
