When the fine folk at Bosch contacted me wanting to share some information about their dishwashers, I was more than happy to oblige. If you’ve been following Common Chaos Chronicle for a while you would well know that a Dishwasher is the most sought after item at Chaos HQ.
When we finally do get around to purchasing a Dishwasher, having never had one before, I need to consider all the aspects of owning one, including being environmentally friendly. So thank you Bosch for sharing this info with us!
The ‘Social Responsibility’ of owning a Bosch dishwasher.
One of the key values amongst most corporations these days is ‘corporate social responsibility’. That means that corporations need to consider how they’re going to contribute to the greater good of society, and one of the biggest and most influential areas is the ‘green’ effect.
Two major components of this are reducing energy and water consumption. The dishwasher, once considered a luxury item of the rich and lazy, is now an important household appliance in reducing both energy and water consumption. Bosch dishwashers are designed and manufactured to be some of the greenest dishwashers in the market.
Since 1886 Bosch has been a company renowned for its innovative designed and quality products. Its’ household appliances have always been created with a user-friendly and environmentally-friendly focus. As early as 1973 environmental protection has been part of the Bosch corporate principles. And in terms of saving energy and water, Bosch dishwashers are a guilt-free must-have.
Hot water generating activities including dish-washing make up 17% of the average household’s energy consumption. Dish-washing alone uses 6% of the average household’s water consumption. Producing top quality and environmentally sound products is therefore paramount.
With this in mind, a comparative study of Bosch dishwashers manufactured in 1994 and 2009 showed that they had improved their dishwashers to such an extent that energy consumption was reduced by 43% and water consumption by 55%.
Bosch has a range of dishwashers from compact, fully integrated and freestanding to suit most kitchens and wash-loads. They are designed and produced using environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes, and continue to make an environmental impact once they’re in your home too. All have a water saving device called AquaStop which cuts the water off at the tap connection. This means there is no leakage which saves water.
An inbuilt AquaSensor ™ in some of the Bosch dishwasher range measures the amount of soiling at the pre-rinse cycle. If the dishes are not too soiled then the pre-rinse water is reused, saving up to 20% of water during the entire wash cycle, while still maintaining an optimum result.
Then there is ActiveWater technology—‘Less water, less energy, more performance.’
Using as little as 10.3 litres per 14 international place settings, it targets water distribution, heats up and dries dishes faster. It uses superior filter and water pumping technology too.
An added bonus with ActiveWater dishwashers is that they come with HalfLoad Plus. You can stack the dishes anywhere in the dishwasher, not just on either the top or bottom rack, and it will wash them at the highest performance level, whilst continuing to save water and energy.
Bosch’s motto is ‘Invented for life’. Sustaining life and improving their customer’s lives with top quality products is what Bosch stands for. Owning a Bosch dishwasher is one way of making your life that little bit easier, while making your own contribution to the greater good of society.
Thank-you Bosch for sharing that valuable information with us here at Chaos HQ. Any chance you’d like me to road-test the latest dishwasher for you? I would be in kitchen heaven!
