Miele Dishwashers Meet 2011 Energy Star® Requirements Today

Engineered to be the greenest Miele dishwashers yet, the new G 2002 series uses only 5.1 gallons of water in its Normal cycle, with many models exceeding Energy Star’s® future 2011 water and energy standards. Miele’s previous Normal program used only 6.1 gallons of water per load, making the new series 17% more efficient – saving about a gallon per load. In its Economy cycle, the new Miele series only uses 1.2 gallons (for those who want to save even more water and energy).

“What’s truly remarkable about our water and energy reduction is that the homeowner gives up absolutely nothing in the area of product performance and, most importantly, cleaning results,” states Nadine Gast, Product Manager for Miele, Inc. “Miele engineers left nothing out of the equation when developing this dishwasher series, including the advanced engineering of some very critical internal elements. These include a high performance water pump, an advanced Turbo feature that speeds up wash programs by 30% and an improved drying system called SensorDry that calculates the optimal drying time. The combination of these new features enables Miele to achieve lower water and energy usage standards while delivering brilliant results… something Miele dishwashers have been acclaimed for since 1929.”

“Beyond energy and water usage, consumers need to consider performance as part of their green home strategy,” states Gast. “According to Energy Star®, pre-rinsing dishes prior to loading can waste up to 20 gallons of water per cycle. With a Miele dishwasher, pre-rinsing is not necessary as our dishwashers are guaranteed to clean thoroughly without rinsing. Scrape and load is all a consumer needs to do. When buying a dishwasher to save energy and water, homeowners should investigate which models can clean effectively while being energy efficient.”

Green Features Overview:

- Miele has a 20-year lifespan, outlasting the average life cycle stated by Energy Star® by 9 years, that’s two dishwashers purchased for every Miele sold.

- More than 90% of the dishwasher itself is recyclable.
