  • Bosch launches new products for 2011

    Bosch launches a portfolio of new products across all sectors for 2011

    •   New range of hobs, hoods and ovens includes FlexInduction, tempered glass gas hobs, Exxcel extractors and compact steam

    •   Two world firsts for dishwashers – world’s quietest model at 38dB* and most water efficient with 6.5 litre consumption**

    •   Intelligent washing machines and tumble dryers with minimal water and energy usage

    •   Innovative refrigeration with No Frost free and Low Frost technology and new black designs

    Bosch is proud to announce brand new launches for 2011 across all sectors – cooking, dishwashing, home laundry and refrigeration. The new appliances incorporate the very latest technology, resulting in the most water and energy efficient models available on the market today.

    Bosch brand manager Ken Humphrey says, “We are proud to be launching our most energy efficient and technically advanced appliances ever. This innovative collection provides the end consumer with easy to use, forward thinking and built to last products that deliver exceptional results every time.”

    Key highlights of the launch include the new FlexInduction hob, which creates the ultimate in cooking flexibility thanks to its extendable zone that can be used to heat any size or shape of pan, as well as more than one pan at the same time.

    Bosch is set to revolutionise the dishwashing market by launching two world first models for 2011. The Eco Silence Logixx is the world’s quietest freestanding dishwasher* with a 38dB noise level, while the Exxcel AquaStar is the world’s most water efficient** using just 6.5 litres of water to wash a full 13 place setting load. The Bosch AquaStar is available in white and silver innox as freestanding, semi integrated and fully integrated in 81.5cm height as well as an 86.5cm built-in model for taller kitchen cabinets.

    There are also exciting new developments in home laundry with the Exxcel 7 VarioPerfect washing machine, which has an ActiveWater™ system that uses only the optimum amount of water per wash cycle. The EcoLogixx 7 condenser tumble dryers, available with a solid and glass door are the most energy efficient yet, using heat pump technology to deliver A-40% energy ratings.

    Jacob Tompkins, Managing Director of Waterwise, says, “Bosch has always been at the forefront of environmental design and the water technology in these new machines is the best on the market. The use of intelligent water dosing and real time turbidity testing enables the machines to minimise water use without compromising performance. Waterwise is very excited about the new range as Bosch is mainstreaming water efficient technology with desirable products - good news for everyone and the environment.”

    Bosch is also launching a brand new range of No Frost refrigeration in both built-in and freestanding models. Key appliances include an upright frost free freezer with matching fridge and Logixx built-in and freestanding fridge freezers, which benefit from A+ or A++ energy efficiency ratings.

    To help make life easier, Bosch has also introduced a series of new LowFrost fridge freezers to the Avantixx and Classixx range, which benefit from glass shelves in the freezer, so freezing elements are hidden in the housing, creating more storage space. The smooth surface is also less likely to suffer from frost build-up, which ensures quick, easy cleaning.
