Smeg is Italy's largest manufacturer of domestic kitchen appliances.
Smeg was founded by Vittorio Bertazzoni in 1948 as Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla (metal enamelling factory in the village of Guastalla, Reggio Emilia). The company is still in the hands of the Bertazzoni family, currently under the direct control of Roberto Bertazzoni. Its headquarters remain a short distance from Guastalla.
Smeg dishwashers are perfectly in line with all of the latest design trends and offer ideal solutions for fitting into tight spaces. Ergonomic, innovative and designed to guarantee high performance, the 36" horizontal dishwasher is a new concept on the market.
Optimum load flexibility is ensured thanks to the "single open space" basket that has been carefully designed to ensure optimal use of the space available. The intensive Wash Zone Selector allows you to choose which zone of the basket in which to concentrate the wash, depending on where you place the most soiled items. The interior of the dishwasher contains a light which turns on when the door opens. The light is both highly efficient and has a low energy consumption. The unique designs of the 36" dishwasher requires special hinges in the hinge panel area on the door. The hinges have a triple effect and a anti-crush device which ensures safety.
An exclusive anti-drip system is fitted to the front of the basket. This operates every time the basket is pulled out to prevent water drops on the floor. An exceptional new program that cleans even the dirtiest of dishes in just 50 minutes by reaching a temperature of 158 degrees F. Quick and intense, this program delivers hygiene and cleanliness faster than any other wash program.
This dishwasher uses 298 kWh/yr and has an estimated yearly operating cost of $33.05.
The estimated yearly operating cost is based on a 2011 national average electricity cost of $.1109 per kWh. For more information, visit www.ftc.gov/appliances.
