The SMEG dishwasher design team has carefully researched the fundamental requirements of the market, and created innovative appliances that incorporate high performance, ergonomics and efficiency with beautiful design. SMEG's new 18” dishwasher STA4645U is designed specifically for compact kitchens, to meet the needs of those who have limited space, but don’t want to give up quality and performance.
The new fully-integrated 18” dishwasher comes with outstanding features:
• Shuttle Wash System: the “Shuttle® System” is a patented system exclusive to SMEG's 18” dishwashers. Since these dishwashers have a rectangular rather than square tank, SMEG overcame the situation with a system that shuttles the lower spray arm from front to back on a secondary supporting arm, ensuring optimum water distribution throughout the rectangular-shaped tub.
• Noise level: spray arm jets are shaped to direct water with extreme precision, so that noise level is kept as low as 45 dBA.
• Full stainless steel: a stainless steel tub and filter guarantee stability and durability of the dishwasher.
• Variety of wash cycles and options: 5 different wash cycles — Normal, Auto Delicate, Rinse, Crystal, and Extreme Wash. Thanks to the delay timer (up to 9 hours), the dishwasher will fit in with your schedule. Aquatests, sanitation, and built-in water softeners will guarantee the highest possible standards of cleanliness and hygiene.
• Water leak protection system: this system will detect leaks in the hose, and will switch off the water supply immediately, if necessary.
• Load flexibility: SMEG's unique baskets are made in stainless steel and covered in plastic to lower the noise level during the wash. The “open space” design increases wash and load efficiency. The adjustable upper rack, the lower basket with double foldable rack, and the cutlery basket can be employed to customize the layout of the basket.
• The self-balancing door allows for easiness of the loading operation.
• Toe kick: 4” toe kick for custom installation.
A fingerprint-proof stainless steel door panel with a “Classic” style handle is available for this model.
