Miele unveiled at the Berlin-held IFA 2018 exhibition Tuesday what it said is a market first: the G 7000 dishwasher, being touted as using the industry’s first automatic detergent dispensing system.
To be sold beginning in November in the European market, the G 7000 employs a detergent-dispensing system called PowerDisk that uses sensor-monitoring to mete out an amount of powder granulate detergent commensurate with what is loaded inside the washer. One PowerDisk is good for 20 cycles, said the company. The G 7000 is also Wi-Fi-connected and can be programmed to start automatically at certain times. Via a smartphone app, the dishwasher also notifies the owner as to when to replenish the PowerDisk. The dishwasher's technology was detailed by Miele Executive Director Dr. Markus Miele.
Also introduced at the press event, held prior to the floor opening, was the M Chef gourmet food delivery service, which makes available to owners of the Miele Dialog oven – introduced to great fanfare at IFA 2017 and having just started delivering to consumers in the European market a few weeks ago – with the ingredients to prepare up to six plated dishes simultaneously with an average cooking time of 20 minutes.
The Dialog oven uses electromagnetic cooking technology whereby twin electromagnetic wave antennas receive intermittent readings every 10 seconds on how much of transmitted cooking energy has been absorbed by the food, and a sensor adjusts temperatures accordingly, sometimes cutting cooking time by up to 70 percent.
The company at the last IFA demonstrated the Dialog’s efficacy by fully cooking a raw cod fillet encased in a block of ice without melting any of the ice.
