Electrolux Dishwashers Review & Guide
Cleaning up after enjoying a nice meal can feel like a chore. But when it comes to washing the dishes, Electrolux has a couple of dishwashers claimed to help make things simple. From vacuum cleaners to washing machines, Swedish powerhouse Electrolux offers a range of home appliances to suit a variety of Aussie households. Companies like Westinghouse and Dishlex are also owned by the Electrolux group, making the whitegoods giant one of the most well-known brands in the world.
Electrolux aims to reach new heights of convenience with its ComfortLift Dishwasher. Ideal for people who have trouble loading and unpacking their dishes, this unit aims to ease the cleaning up process by raising the lower basket to a more comfortable height. The RealLife XXL Fully Integrated DIshwasher by Electrolux similarly contains a range of convenient functionalities, including quick wash options and the ability to store unusual shaped objects.
To help you decide if this brand is right for you, get the dish on Electrolux’s concise range of dishwashers with our product review below.
Electrolux Built-Under ComfortLift Dishwasher
Featuring the ComfortLift, the Electrolux ESF8375ROX dishwasher gently raises the lower basket to what is described as a ‘comfortable’ height. This dishwasher has a three-star energy-efficiency rating and a 4.5 water rating.
The machine has enough room for 14 place settings, including those ‘hard to place’ items. It includes FlexiWash, which is claimed to achieve the best results for each item by making the most of the upper and lower baskets, regardless of what you load. The FlexiSpray arm and five spray levels are also said to change the way traditional spray arms function, with the FlexiSpray arm moving in different directions and getting into the most packed areas to clean even the smallest amount of dirt in the largest loads.
Electrolux also claims it was inspired to take a ‘natural’ approach when it created AirDry technology – a function which opens the door 10cm once the dishes are clean to dry your load in a way that consumes less energy.
Other key features include:
- Inverter System and Inverter Motor: allows the machine to run more quietly as well as improve long-term durability
- MyFavourite program: save your preferred setting and use it next time just by pressing a single button
- Intelligent AutoFlex program: a program which automatically selects what is stated to be the ‘optimum’ temperature, water, energy and wash time. The AutoFlex sensors are said to detect the degree of cleaning needed and the number of objects in the machine
Electrolux RealLife XXL Fully Integrated Dishwasher
The Electrolux RealLife XXL Fully Integrated Dishwasher is a 60cm machine that comes with 15 place settings. It has a 3.5 energy rating and a 4.5 water efficiency star rating.
Like the Electrolux ComfortLift Dishwasher, the ESL8530RO model uses AirDry technology and includes similar features such as FlexiWash and AutoFlex.
Other key features include:
- Aqua control: a water safety system claimed to provide anti-flood protection
- Time Manager: set a finish time so you can unpack the dishwasher when it suits you
- Quick Plus: 30-minute wash option designed to clean lightly soiled dishes at up to 60℃.
If you’re having dinner guests and don’t want a loud dishwasher to disturb your conversations, or just want peace and quiet in the house, this model contains the Inverter System to maintain the noise level at just 444dBA. It also includes an Inverter Motor to apparently improve the durability and long-lasting operation of the system.
For those looking for a user-friendly experience, the AutoFlex program allows you to have your machine automatically choose what it considers to be the ‘optimum’ temperature, water, energy and wash time. To achieve optimum performance, the multi-stage AutoFlex sensors are said to detect the degree of cleaning needed and the quantity of items in the basket.
Should I buy an Electrolux dishwasher?
Whether you’re craving a dishwasher with quiet performance, or need an appliance to match your busy schedule, Electrolux provides a couple of built-in and fully integrated dishwashers that should meet your expectations.
If you find it difficult to load and unload your dishwasher, the Electrolux Built-Under ComfortLift Dishwasher raises the Comfort basket to help make the process easier. An ideal option for elderly people or those with back problems, this model includes user-friendly features like the MyFavourite program and Intelligent AutoFlex program.
The Electrolux RealLife XXL Fully Integrated Dishwasher may be a suitable option for large families that need a machine to clean a large number of dishes no matter how they’re stored. This machine is said to reach into all areas to ensure an effective clean, so don’t stress too much if the kids haven’t rinsed those dishes first!
