The Thermador Sapphire is bringing sexy back to cleaning.

Thermador is known for many things — the first wall oven, taking the stainless steel kitchen mainstream, the Star Burner, among other things.

It’s fairly obvious that cooking is our bread and butter. And yes, we’re pretty good at creating appliances that cater to every whim and need of the true cook, including best-in-class ovens, innovative cooktops and ranges that have more BTUs than the space shuttle. Cooking seems to steal the show around here.

But there’s a shadowy, but necessary side to cooking that few like to acknowledge — the cleanup. Lacking in glitz and glamour like its step cousin the cook, cleanup never gets the spotlight. Luckily, we at Thermador have addressed this issue.

Enter our jewel of cleaning, our product feature of the month — the Sapphire 6-program Dishwasher, the ultimate in dishwashers with a sexy blue sapphire light that makes your stemware sparkle and make you the envy of the neighborhood, and a Power Wash program that would make even “Tool Time” Tim Allen proud.

Here are some other great features of the Sapphire:

Dosage Assist — Ever wonder where the detergent tabs land in the dishwasher during the cleaning cycle?  Your guess is as good as mine.  Our unique dispensing system ensures that dishwasher detergent tabs dissolve gradually to maintain a constant delivery of detergent for more effective cleaning throughout the cycle.  Now, that’s clever!

Largest Wine Glass Capacity— Can hold up to 18 wine glasses for all of your entertaining needs.  That’s most on the market.

Chef’s Tool Drawer — Upper third rack delivers more loading capacity, including a dedicated area to horizontally position chef’s knives, spatulas and other oversized tools.  Odd sized items like a ramekin fits perfectly this dedicated drawer.

Fine Silverware Carafe – an aluminum case protects valuable silver flatware from damaging oxidation so it can be safely washed in the dishwasher.  That’s even cleverer.

Powerfully Quiet — Advanced engineering makes it so quiet, you won’t even notice it’s operating.  It’s true, you’ll have to check twice to make sure it’s running.

Yep, that’s right, Sapphire is bringing sexy back to cleanup.
