Meiko UK is offering its customers the option of a hood-type dishwasher with an automatic hood raising mechanism.
The automatic hood, available on the company's DV200 double-basket range and the flagship DV270.2, raises itself at the end of the cycle, gently releasing steam so it disperses slowly into the kitchen.
It means staff are not struggling to raise a heavy hood, thereby putting themselves at risk of back strain.
It also eliminates the need to wait for the programme to finish in order to lift the hood manually.
Another bonus is that if staff are busy elsewhere when the programme ends, the steam does not have time to condense on the inside of the hood.
