Guest Post by Conal Roney, Director of Marketing at Kieffer’s Appliances


When I was hired at Kieffer’s Appliances, I thought an oven was an oven and a dishwasher was a dishwasher and so on.  They were all the same to me, but now I know better.  If you’ve read any of our guest posts before, you know that appliances have so many different features that separate one brand, or model, from another.  I’m continuously amazed to see what bells and whistles manufacturers come up with to outdo themselves, and they always think of something.  Enter Miele’s Knock2Open dishwashers.

What are Miele Knock2Open Dishwashers?

Available on the Lumen dishwasher (model G6595SCViK2o) and the Diamond dishwasher (model G6985SCViK2o) in custom wood panel fronts only, you literally knock twice on the front and the door automatically opens.  It’s very cool.

Why Would You Want Knock2Open Technology?

If you’re going for a modern kitchen design and your cabinetry doesn’t have handles or minimalistic handles, Knock2Open dishwashers ensure that you keep continuity throughout your base cabinets:

When the door is closed, you would have no idea the dishwasher is there.

Other Features in Knock2Open Dishwashers

Besides this cool technology, Miele Knock2Open dishwashers are brimming with features that’s made them famous like their 3D Cutlery tray and super-duper,whisper quiet operation (44 decibels for the Lumen model and 42 decibels for the Diamond dishwasher). Both units are packed with cleaning cycles like China & Crystal, Pots & Pans, and Rinse & Hold.  In total, the Lumen dishwasher features 12 wash cycles and the Diamond offers a whopping 16 different cycles.  Miele even backs up their Diamond dishwasher with a free five year warranty as long as you register your purchase at Miele’s website.
