Maytag's six-litre dishwasher awarded Waterwise Checkmark

By KBBDaily on 19th March 2013 - 14:00pm

Maytag's six-litre MDW 606AWG dishwasher has been awarded the  Waterwise Recommended Checkmark, a voluntary product labelling scheme for water-saving products in the commercial and domestic sector.

The Checkmark has been awarded to over 60 products, from shower timers, toilets and drought resistant turf, that are highly water efficient or have features that limit water wastage.

Jacob Tompkins, MD of Waterwise, said: "The Maytag MDW 606AWG is a prime example of how technology can be used to increase proficiency in resource usage without compromising on performance. The Checkmark is the perfect way to help consumers make an informed decision when purchasing new appliances.”

Maytag's six-litre dishwasher uses intelligent features to limit and control the resources in every cycle, and saves the water from the final rinse in a reservoir, where it is stored and recycled for use at the beginning of the next programme.

Dalia Haddad, product marketing manager for Maytag, said: “The Waterwise Checkmark is a highly respected symbol of economical and eco-friendly appliances and this, along with saving the consumer time and money, is what Maytag aims to achieve with intelligent features.”
