Why buy the Direct Catering SD40 Front Loading Dishwasher?

"High performance, energy and cost saving and simple operation" - DC dishwashers.

The DC SD40 uses rapid 180 second wash cycles to clean the dishes: boosting productivity. Powering through the stubborn stains an innovative heavy duty wash pump wipes away marks leaving nothing but streak free pieces. Furthermore to ensure that the wash temperature is standardised for each wash a thermo-lock guarantees the water temperature is what the user sets it as. 

Using simple controls and clear system messages, spending valuable time on extensive training is a thing of the past. In addition protecting the cleaning elements an EasyClean filter removes impurities and sediments so only fresh clean water is flushing through the unit. An improved rinse arm increases the initial response by 30% and rotation speed by 20% so dishes come out streak free and cleaner than ever before.

The DC dishwasher cuts costs and saves water usage by balancing the water quantity and hygienic results producing an excellent wash every time. The wash pump has an automatic self-drain feature increasing hygiene and efficiency. 

Compatible with either hot or cold water feed. Maximum water temperature of 60°C. There must also be sufficient water pressure and flow rate.
