Use the smart screen on your fridge to digitally label ingredients with expiration dates. Track your fresh and frozen food items so nothing goes to waste. If an ingredient is about to expire, your fridge will recommend recipes to incorporate this ingredient using other items you have on hand. Once you select a recipe, your fridge will send cooking instructions to your smart stove.

Bosch dishwashers are designed to conserve water and electricity. Each dishwasher is equipped with a turbidity sensor that measures the soil on your dishes. Bosch dishwashers will only run for as long as they need to until your dishes are perfectly clean. Most Bosch dishwasher cycles use 2 to 3 gallons which is far less water than doing dishes by hand. As a comparison, most faucets will yield 1.5 to 2 gallons per minute. So, 10 minutes at the sink washing dishes could use up to 20 gallons! To wash small loads, select the “half-load” cycle as it uses less water and energy.
Last year Bosch introduced Crystal Dry (TM) technology in their 800 Series and select Benchmark Series dishwashers. This first-of-its-kind innovation uses Zeolite, a natural compound that transforms moisture into heat to get dishes 60 percent drier, even plastics. This non-toxic compound uses chemistry, not electricity to dry in a new energy efficient way. The Zeolite crystals generate heat when wet.
Another great way to save resources, is to consider a dishwasher with lots of capacity. Bosch dishwashers have always offered flexible racks to fit dishes, bowls, pots, and pans of all shapes and sizes. This 800 series model features a flexible third rack adds 30 percent more loading capacity when compared to standard dishwashers. Fitting more items into every dishwasher load will help you get dishes done more efficiently and will reduce your water consumption.
Bosch’s sustainability efforts produce measurable results. Since 1990, Bosch appliances cut water consumption by 59 percent. Bosch recycles 92 percent of all production waste. Energy Star rated Bosch dishwashers exceed requirements for water by 69 percent saving up to 280 gallons of water each year.
Miele is known for its exceptional reliability and fabric care. Their patented honeycomb drum design, Cap Dosing portioned detergent capsules, and heat pump dryer technology are gentle on delicate fabrics. Its compact design is perfect for your master bathroom, walk-in closet, or under your counter. Miele compact washers and dryers care for your garments the best way possible - your wardrobe will thank you.
This stackable set comes with a heat pump dryer, a ventless dryer designed with energy efficiency in mind. A heat pump dryer works as a closed loop system by heating the air using it to remove moisture from the clothes and then reusing it once the moisture is removed. Since heat pump dryers recycle heat, this vent-free dryer does not require external ducting. Unlike other ventless condensation dryers, heat pump dryers do not expel hot air into the laundry space, which can get toasty during warmer months.
Many consumers want to conserve energy and resources yet are unsure where to get started. Miele’s Eco Feedback feature tracks your precise energy and water consumption data for each cycle so you can track your own consumption and adjust your habits to meet your efficiency goals.
Additionally, most people use too much soap when running a wash cycle. Using too much detergent results in stiff clothes, clogged washers, and unnecessary plastic waste. The Miele 2-phase automatic dispensing detergent system releases the perfect quantity of detergent with each load for clean clothes every time. Miele TwinDos detergent dispensing washers do an excellent job cleaning your clothes. Their detergents contain no fragrances, colorants, are gentle on your skin, and are verified as Eco friendly by Nordic Swan.
Sustainability is a core characteristic in Miele’s brand identity. Committed to producing long-lasting, energy-efficient appliances and conserving resources during the production process for every product. Miele is steadfastly committed to producing high quality products, built to high quality and environmental standards.
