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.
