Blomberg washing machine

German appliance brand Blomberg is bringing its 'high-end' home appliances - including washing machines, fridge freezers and a dishwasher - to the UK.

The Blomberg brand has been around since 1883, selling its products in Europe and in the US - but the launch of three washing machines, a dishwasher and seven refrigeration products in June is Blomberg's first venture into the UK home appliance market.

The products will go on sale in Euronics stores - prices yet to be confirmed - and come with a three-year parts and labour warranty. Blomberg is part of the Arçelik manufacturing group, which also includes Beko.

Blomberg washing machines

Blomberg is launching three - two with 6kg capacities and one with 7kg - aimed to appeal to consumers who 'demand reliable products for everyday household tasks'. The washing machines have 11 programmes, including a 'mini 14' cycle which it claims can wash 2kg of lightly soiled clothes in 14 minutes.

All the washing machines come with an A+ energy rating and 'durable water heater', which Blomberg says eliminates the need for descaling in hard-water areas. The 7kg model also has an 'extra large door'.

Blomberg dishwasher

According to Blomberg, the GSN9120 dishwasher has five washing programmes, including a cycle that cleans lightly-soiled dishes in half an hour and an 'Express 58' cycle able to wash dishes in 58 minutes. The company also promises the dishwasher is quiet to run, has an antibacterial seal and adjustable basket for easy loading.

Finally, Blomberg will be launching four frost-free , two standalone and an under-the-counter .

According to the company, all these refrigeration products are A rated for energy and come with antibacterial wall coating and door gaskets. The KND9650 fridge freezer also has 'hygiene+' technology to banish odours and an electronic display.
