The heavy-duty CF70 freestanding dishwasher from Valera is a mid-height (1,300mm) machine with a raised basket to eliminate back-breaking lifting. Made from double-skinned and insulated 18/8 stainless steel for quieter, more economical operation, the washer can clean 1,060 12in plates per hour and accommodates 18 plates per rack.
A fully-automatic wash and rinse operation means the machine does not require skilled operators. The wash cycle is fully adjustable between one and three minutes and uses no more than three litres per cycle.
Features include built-in detergent and rinse aid dosers; removable, non-metallic arms; a 28-litre wash tank; an eight-litre rinse tank; and universal plate and cutlery baskets.
The list price is £2,199 plus VAT.
The CF70B, which costs £2,499 plus VAT, adds an integral break tank and booster pump. Both models can be fitted with an optional 12-litre water softener that costs £83 plus VAT.
