Cook. Eat. Wash Dishes. Repeat. 


Yes, you can cross out that third item on the list. If you delegate the dreaded, tedious chore to the Smeg freestanding dishwasher, here are some things you would never have to do again.



1. Never hunch over a sink for a long period of time. 


Why strain your body when the job can be reduced to pushing buttons? Yes, all of 22 pieces of big dinner plates, one dozen small/medium plates, 15 saucers, 10 drinking glasses plus cutleries can be washed by lifting literally just a finger. And because the 280-liter cavity of the Smeg freestanding dishwasher can be configured in various ways, it can accommodate the even-harder-to-clean pots and pans. No more leaning over to scrub. Goodbye to back, shoulder, and neck pains.



2. Never have to worry about dry, rough, itchy hands. 

The pandemic safety protocols has everyone washing hands more often than usual. If you have to do manual dishwashing on top of that, your skin will definitely take a beating. No matter how gentle the detergent you use, it will be challenging to keep your hands soft and smooth. While wearing gloves is always an option, many complain that they are not very comfortable and decrease movement efficiency. Besides, if you really want thorough cleansing for your dinnerware and kitchen utensils, proper water temperature is needed. The Smeg freestanding dishwasher can operate between 30 and 70 degrees celsius,  you wouldn’t want to expose your hands to water that hot. The UltraClean, a special anti-bacterial wash program which rinses at the maximum temperature setting eliminates everything from dry, hardened food to bacteria that cause diseases so your plates are squeaky clean and disinfected. 



3. Never consume water unnecessarily. 

Dishwashing is essential. But using up 102 liters of water when 12 liters is enough is a needless waste. Ninety liters of water is the whopping difference between handwashing and using a Smeg freestanding dishwasher for the same load. There is a global water scarcity, we all have to do our share in consuming water wisely. This is savings beyond your household utility bill. 



4. Never miss out on important activities. 

How many times have you had to excuse yourself from something because you can no longer put off the pile in the sink? Maybe you had to cut short a zoom get-together, turn down a request for a game of hide and seek, pause the thriller you’re watching? Because dirty dishes can only wait so long. They can attract pests or you’ll eventually run out of stuff to use for the next meal. You can spend your time more meaningfully and let the Orbital wash system of the Smeg freestanding dishwasher do the job. The double spray arm with contra-action rotation distributes water evenly throughout the cavity for excellent wash quality and a greatly reduced noise level.The dishwashing equipment could be running even while you’re asleep. There are pre-set programs for your every need. From Rapid 27, a quick 27-minute process for dishes with light dirt to Ultra Clean, 160 minutes of action for very dirty pans and dishes with dried-on residue. 


These are just a few reasons to never wash your dishes again – by hand, that is. If you’re hesitant to get a dishwasher because of installation or space issues, don’t worry, the Smeg freestanding dishwasher is plug and play, no need for complicated construction and configuration. It requires nothing but an electrical outlet and a water line. And its pristine white stainless steel body can work with any interior design, in any spot in your home. A built-in model is also available.
