In its catalog of products Gaggenau has it all: extractor hoods, ranges, refrigerators, everything. This renowned German brand is famous for combining 3 concepts in the manufacture of its appliances: design, technology, and quality. For that reason, it doesn’t come as a surprise that an appliance as common as the dishwasher is considered, based on the standards of Gaggenau, a masterpiece you can take full advantage of.
At this point, you are probably thinking how much is there to know? Isn’t it just about putting dirty dishes in the dishwasher? Well, no, that’s not the case. Let us explain why.
It turns out that to obtain all the benefits that a dishwasher like the DF481761 from the 400 series by Gaggenau can offer you, you have to know certain tricks. Today, we share some of the most important ones with you.
6 tricks, one mission: impeccable dinnerware
It doesn’t matter if just like the model DF481761 by Gaggenau, your dishwasher has 8 water-sensor programs, 4 cycle options (including power and intensive), a flexible rack system with smooth rails on all levels, TFT display for intuitive handling of all functions, remaining time projection onto the kitchen floor, and perfectly illuminated interior. If you don’t know how you can get more out of those virtues, it won’t do you any good to have a dishwasher of such quality or with so much technology in your home.
So, take note of the tricks we list below and get ready to see the difference.
Trick No. 1. Everything in its place. Did you know that the items placed in the lower basket receive a more intense wash, with hotter water, than the ones you put on the upper rack? Knowing this will help you become more strategic, that way you can place the dirtiest items at the bottom, including pots. But always put the most delicate pieces (glassware, cups, etc.) on the upper rack of the dishwasher.
Trick No. 2. Give importance to silverware. Placing a few handles of the silverware up and others down in the silverware basket will help these items be perfectly clean.
Trick No. 3. Don’t go overboard. Cleverly filling the dishwasher doesn’t mean filling it until nothing else can fit into it. Remember that the lower water sprinkler should rotate freely and if you saturate the bottom area it won’t be able to do so, and your dishes will not be washed as they should.
Trick No. 4. Verify that all parts are suitable. Not all dinnerware can go into the dishwasher. It is important to look at the symbols on each piece and when in doubt, refrain from putting them in the dishwasher.
Trick 5. Do a maintenance wash. Once a month, do a hot wash with the appliance empty, using your dishwasher cleaning product. This will remove fat and salt build-up from the appliance.
Trick 6. Clean the appliance between washes. Before putting the dinnerware, silverware, and glassware into the dishwasher it is a good idea to remove the remains that are left between one wash and another with a little water. This simple trick will make your appliance last longer.
While Gaggenau gets ahead of the needs of users by offering accessories (glass holders, anti-tarnish silverware holder, and even degreasers) that will facilitate the operation of the appliance, these simple tricks will make you get all the benefits offered by a dishwasher like the DF481761.
