Smeg Dishwasher Review
Features - Orbital and Aquastop
Smeg dishwashers are some of the best looking dishwashers on the market. Their sleek styling is refined and elegant and looks great in any contemporary, streamlined kitchen. While they score exceptionally well in the style stakes, some owners say they don’t measure up quite as well when it comes to doing the job they’re designed to do.

Smeg diswashers use an ‘Orbital’ washing system which claims to use the power of water more effectively. A ‘Shuttle System’ is also used for water delivery in a continuous clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation to help spray water into every nook and cranny inside the machine.
Most of the Smeg dishwasher models also come equipped with an ‘Aquastop’ system which prevents any danger of flooding by cutting off the water supply and stopping the cycle.
Smeg have reduced the sound level in their machines by modifying the angle of the spray arms to reduce impact on the walls of the tank, during the cycle. However, with a sound level of 49dB, they are not the quietest models on the dishwashing market, with other brands such as AEG measuring only 43dB.
The Smeg Orbital Dishwashers have relatively low water consumption, depending on the model between 22 to 16 litres and it can drop to as low as 14 litres on certain cycles. The premium models also have an energy and water saving feature that allows you to run a half-load program on either the upper or lower baskets of the machines.
