Gaggenau Company History
Gaggenau is an appliance company with a history dating back to 1681. Named after a town in Germany where the brand was founded, the company is now owned by BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgerate GmbH. In 1961, a home chef named Georg von Blanquet took over the company and started a line of restaurant-grade kitchen appliances. In 1995, the company was bought by Bosch and now manufacturers luxury kitchen appliances.
Special Features Of Gaggenau Dishwashers
Gaggenau dishwashers include a new technology designed specifically for washing glassware. The technology prevents extreme fluctuations in temperature. Gaggenau's AquaSensor technology uses an infrared sensor that judges the cleanliness of the water after the pre-wash cycle. If the water is detected as clean, the dishwasher will reuse this water instead of discharging it as regular dishwashers generally do.

The Tall Tub DF 261 and the Euro Tub DF 260 are ENERGY STAR-qualified with AquaSensor technology that optimizes water and energy usage.
