Ahh dinner parties...the warm atmosphere, friendly company, endless food and wine...the clean up. The carnage strewn across the counter of all the items too awkward and bulky for the dishwasher following a party is a familiar scene to most of us. Not to mention the sea of wine glasses which never seem make the cut either, because somebody (your spouse) suggested they put the dishes in their way (the wrong way). Now, there’s finally a solution to dishwasher tetris, the game no one ever seems to win at.
While we’ve been placing such great focus and investing in technology for our major appliances such as the fridge and stove, the dishwasher has fallen to the wayside. The makers of Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances are changing that. They’ve developed a state of the art dishwasher, named after the tranquil water it was inspired by-The Cove.
The Cove boasts 200 washing cycles, an impressive 41 jets and not one, not two, but three spray arms. Plus, with angled racks, you won’t have to worry about drying your dishes after they come out.
In keeping with the name, they aimed to create a near silent machine. There’s even an “extra quiet” setting which runs at a slower speed to ensure peacefulness. No need to remember whose turn it is to start the dishwasher before going to bed.
The Cove was designed to accommodate the heavier, larger tableware styles of North American diners, and yes, it has plenty of room for wine glasses on the top and bottom rack. Green markers indicate the adjustable racks, so even if you think your spouse doesn’t load the dishwasher correctly, there’s room for everyone’s opinion with this flexible layout.
The brand’s first dishwasher is set to be released this year, and retail for $2800. A design that’s nearly a decade in the making is sure to impress, and will hopefully eliminate bickering over which way to put the cereal bowls in, which in itself is priceless.
