GE Profile UltraFresh System dishwasher with antimicrobial technology


GE Appliances realized the new GE Profile UltraFresh System dishwasher with Microban antimicrobial technology that aims to reduce the growth of bacteria in and on the appliance. This innovation is built into the high-contact touchpoints, including handles, control panel, rack handles, silverware cell covers and the filtration system. Additionally, this GE Profile dishwasher features the UltraFresh System that helps to stop the causes of odor by pulling in fresh air and water in between cycles when it detects the dishwasher needs a refresh.
The UltraFresh System dishwasher’s innovative technology relies on a three-pronged system of Drain, Dry and Defend.
DRAIN: in between cycles, smart sensors continuously monitor when to add fresh water into the wash system to drain and renew the sump with fresh, clean water to help remove the causes of odor. In conjunction, the water filters are treated with Microban antimicrobial technology.
DRY: in between cycles, the dishwasher continually pulls in air from the outside, and smart sensors and a fan work together to refresh the air to help reduce the moisture inside the dishwasher, which is one of the causes of odor inside the dishwasher.
DEFEND: Microban’s antimicrobial technology is built into product surfaces during the manufacturing stage to continuously help prevent the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew. When microbes like bacteria or fungi come into contact with a Microban treated surface, their key life systems are attacked and shut down, thus helping to prevent their growth on the surface.
