  • At Electrolux, our Human Touch design philosophy guides design to understand our consumer’s homes and habits, to be intuitive, and to anticipate our users evolving needs. When it came time to redefine the dishwasher, we focused on the consumer’s experience – uncovering their pain points, and focusing on the essential piece of interaction between user and product – loading and unloading the dishes. Whether it’s stacking the breakfast bowls or cleaning up after a dinner party, the new dishwasher had to be simple and comfortable to use, plus deliver a superior cleaning result no matter the item.

  • The Electrolux ComfortLift™ dishwasher has revolutionised the way that people interact with their dishwasher. The world-first lifting mechanism gently raises the lower basket of the dishwasher to a comfortable waist height to give the user full access to their dishes and eliminate the need to bend down when loading or unloading. The intuitive release trigger ensures that the basket stays safely raised until the user is finished. The rack then descends in a gentle motion – reassuring the user that their dishes are always safe and cared for. It’s gentle on you, and gentle on your dishes.

  • The Electrolux ComfortLift™ dishwasher has demonstrated standout commercial impact globally due to this unique innovation focusing on consumer needs. Thanks to a benefit that is easily demonstrated, consumers intuitively understand how the innovation can improve their dishwashing routine -driving purchase conversion in a category that otherwise offers little differentiation. Increasing Electrolux sales by 86% since its November2017 launch. ComfortLift™ has spiked Social engagement with 3.5 times higher email engagement, 900% increase in page views PerDay, 57% increase in average time spent on Electrolux sites. True consumer comments say it all: “Game changer”and“…this is one of those ‘take my money’ moments”.

From manufacturing to end-of-life, we’ve made small improvements which are collectively impactful. Plastic components made from recycled material and can be recycled at end-of-life. We use FlexiSpray™&FlexiWash™ technologies to achieve superior clean without additional water.
