GE is battling the problem of dishes that don’t quite come clean by putting 102 cleaning jets into one of its top-of-the-line dishwashers.
That’s half again as many as any other dishwasher, the company claims.
The GE Profile Series dishwasher (model PDT750SSFSS) has water jets placed strategically throughout, including four spray heads in the upper rack that reach inside hard-to-clean vessels such as baby bottles, water bottles and travel mugs. Clips are positioned in those spots to hold lightweight bottles in place.
A reversing wash arm sprays water at various pressures to reach different areas, and jets are positioned to provide extra cleaning to the contents of the silverware basket.
The dishwasher has a suggested retail price of $1,199 and is available at most major and independent retailers that sell kitchen appliances.
The upper-rack bottle jets are also available on four other GE models with suggested retail prices from $899 to $1,099.
