IRVINE, Calif. (August 28, 2017) – Thermador, the iconic American home appliance brand, is taking luxury dish care to the next level with the newly designed, highly innovative Star-Sapphire™ Dishwasher. Thermador is redefining how customers think about dish care, solidifying dishwashers as a vital part of the entertaining process. Every entertainer’s need has been anticipated – such as dedicated spaces for small specialty chef’s tools, the largest wine glass capacity available in the industry and the fastest hot water cycle in the industry – providing unparalleled assistance before, during and after the dinner party. [...]

“The new Star-Sapphire™ Dishwasher is the crown jewel in luxury dish care, delivering the seamless innovation expected from Thermador.” said Beatriz Sandoval, Director of Brand Marketing for Thermador. “What was once a behind-the-scenes workhorse in the kitchen has been transformed into a can’t-live-without part of creating a memorable dining experience, with mood lighting to elevate the ambiance through every stage of entertaining, capacity to wash a large number of wine glasses at once so the drinks can continue flowing, and the fastest hot wash cycle in the industry so dishes sparkle for each course.”

Entertainer’s Drawer: This premium 3rd rack provides two inches of clearance for hard-to-place items that are usually hand-washed or that take up valuable space on the top rack. With a focus on customer needs, no capacity is lost in the upper or bottom rack, allowing for efficient use of space.

Star Glow: An industry first, Star Glow allows you to customize lighting and choose from three brilliant shades of blue or three radiant shades of white to add extra ambiance when preparing or cleaning up after a meal. The vivid shades of light showcase the sparkling cleanliness of every dish.

Star Speed®: This hot water cycle is the fastest in the industry at an unprecedented 20 minutes, allowing you to wash up to 18 glasses on the top and bottom rack in back-to-back cycles to ensure that dishes are clean before, during and after a dinner party.

Ultra-Smooth Glide Racks: These gentle racks minimize friction and noise, and feel smooth, so you can discreetly fill the dishwasher while entertaining.

Largest Wine Glass Capacity: The Star-Sapphire™ Dishwasher offers the largest wine glass capacity available in the industry and can hold up to 18 wine glasses on the top and bottom rack.

A sleek stainless steel design that provides a choice of two handle designs, flush installation and the choice to utilize a custom panel.
