Yes – ASKO dishwashers are specifically designed to protect all kinds of glassware, including fine crystal glass.
Baskets are designed to hold dishes and glasses tightly in place, there's less contact with the interior metal parts of the baskets than in other dishwashers, and there's even a Crystal glass program on the machines.
Artisan glass manufacturer Orrefors has stated that it is safer to wash their products in an ASKO dishwasher than by hand.
An ASKO XXL dishwasher can hold up to 17 individual place settings' worth of dishware.
This gives these machines the largest loading capacity on the market.
ASKO use a lot of steel in their dishwashers, principally in the 8 Steel system in which eight of the machine's most important and frequently-used parts are made from the durable metal.
The appliances are tested to ensure that they will last for 20 years worth of normal use.
ASKO machines are furnished with up to 10 spray nozzles, as well as a number of "power zones" – the goal of these is to ensure an even and thorough distribution of water and detergent with no blind spots.
The machines are designed so that they can clean inside awkward objects and items like baby bottles.
ASKO dishwashers are quiet, and there's a special Night Mode that lets the machine work while the people in your household sleep.

In addition to getting the dishes really clean and rinsing the load thoroughly, ASKO's Hygiene program holds the final rinse for three minutes at 158 degrees Fahrenheit, killing bacteria and sanitizing the dishes effectively.
ASKO dishwashers have several design traits that specifically make loading and unloading the machines easy – like bearing on the rails, foldable tines and inner LEDs on certain models that illuminate the machine's interior.
Some of the dishwashers' shelves are height-adjustable and the middle basket on the 50 series dishwashers is specially designed for long dishes and utensils. There's also a vase and bottle holder available.
Not only do ASKO machines have an Allergy mode for allergy sufferers, they also all have a Steel Seal™ in the door which replaces the standard rubber seals.
This seal is far more hygienic than the rubber alternative and proven to reduce harmful fungus and bacteria in the wash, as well as keeping the inside of the machine cleaner for longer.
ASKO's Allergy mode increases the number of rinses used in the wash, ensuring that garments are free from a wide variety of things that might trigger a reaction. The machine also increases the length of time of the wash by 30 minutes over the chosen temperatures to improve cleanliness even further.
The Speed mode, in addition to a number of time-saving programs, have been included for speedy washes.
You can also save settings so that you don't have to reprogram the machine every time.
Our washing machines and tumble dryers are tested for 10,000 hours. That’s the equivalent of around 20 years' worth of use.
Since steel is a mark of quality and performance, ASKO use a lot of steel in their machines.
We have more steel in our machines than many of the competitors, including in placeslike the door seal and the tub where it matters most.
ASKO's programs reflect the versatility required for modern family life. As a result, they contain special programs, like sportswear/outdoors gear made from technical fabrics, hygiene programs for baby clothes and kitchen wear, and a jeans program specially for denim.
