De Dietrich Ultrasonic Dishwasher Blasts High Frequency Noise to Clean

— September 27, 2009 — Art & Design
De Dietrich has crated an ultrasonic dishwasher which cleans dishes by blasting used plates and glasses with high frequency sound in order to get them clean.

No matter if it looks like Sputnik; if the dishwasher is quiet, it is the best feature in your kitchen. No word on the decibel level with the De Dietrich’s ultrasonic dishwasher, but let’s just hope it doesn’t wake the neighbors when you run it.
