How would you like to win a Blomberg dishwasher?

[Please note that Metallo Arts is no longer in business. This prize was awarded but never delivered. Take from that what you will.]

[As of 2/21/10, there has still been no word from Blomberg regarding this dishwasher. Don't just take from that what you will, let's ratchet this up a little higher. NEVER buy a Blomberg anything.]


To help celebrate the fact that Blomberg Appliances is showing at this year's KBIS, Blomberg has joined with me to host another give away. That's right, you may end up the proud owner of a Blomberg DW361 Fully integrated dishwasher with five wash levels, six programs, five wash temperatures, a three-way filtration system, a delay start, and super quiet 50 db operation. This dishwasher has a typical retail price of around $900.





Blomberg DW361 Fully Integrated Dishwasher with 5 Wash Levels, 6 Programs, 5 Wash Temps, 3-Way Euro Filter System, Delay Start, End of Cycle Chime, 50db Silence


I told my friend Chris at Metallo Arts that I was giving away a dishwasher and wanted to get in on this too. So, as an option, the winner can select a Blomberg DW36100 instead of the DW361. The DW361 is a fully integrated model with a stainless steel front. The DW36100 is also fully integrated and has all of the features of the DW361, but it's what we call panel-ready. A panel-ready dishwasher needs a custom panel front instead of a stainless steel one. The want of a custom panel is where my friends at Metallo Arts come in. Should the lucky winner decide he or she wants a panel-ready dishwasher, Metallo Arts will provide that custom panel. Here's an example of what one looks like:





This is a big deal. The DW36100 retails for $950 and a Metallo Arts custom panel has a $1500 value.

Now the whole point of this is to tie into KBIS, the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. KBIS is this industry's largest trade show and it has to be one of the largest ones period. It's being held in Atlanta this year and it's running from May 1st through the 3rd at the Georgia World Congress Center.

You can enter this drawing in one of two ways. First, you can stop by Blomberg's booth at the show, they will be in Hall C, booth C1918. You can place your entry with the great folks at Blomberg in person.

The second way you can enter is to leave a comment on this post. All you have to Write is I want a Blomberg Dishwasher! and you're in.

Having to pick a winner of my last contest based on merit about did me in, so this one's going to be a random drawing. On Sunday May 3rd, the last day of KBIS, I'm going to put all the names from here and from Blomberg's KBIS booth in a bowl and I am going to reach in and pick a winner.

So, you have a little more than two weeks to come back to this post and leave your I want a Blomberg Dishwasher! comment and the rest is up to me.

  19. Oh look at this Dishwasher. The Fleur de lys (Lily Flower) emblem is a wonderful decorative touch. It wud be particularly popular to the French culture here in Canada.

  64. I want a Blomberg dishwasher.
    I'd probably be willing to give up some less critical organs, or even shave my head in order to get my dishes into a Blomberg. ^^
    I can see it now! I stand victorious in a gleaming kitchen that did NOT take me an hour to clean, mocking entropy and feeling supremely pleased with myself. Err... and you, of course. I will definitely be very pleased with you.
    I shall probably name it after you, and post pix of it lovingly among my family photos.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Bah, all that fun and I missed the date. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Sick around, there will be more give aways. I promise.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I sold those dishwashers for about 2 years , they are small, cheaply built europeans dishwashers. Nothing close to "real " deluxe brands like Miele or Asko.. Please don't be fooled by " german engineering " Bloomberg dishwashers are a service nightmare and are really not what you'd expect of a german brand .. even one priced that low

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thanks for that Evelyne, I'd like to hear more about your experiences with Blomberg.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Everybody has their favorite brands ( as you seem to love Sub Zero/Wolf) and I am madly in love with Miele. Bloomberg is a good option for the client that is NOT looking for a top of the line appliance. ( I strongly suggest extended warranty on them ) important to know that they are not roomy dishwashers, ( most european models aren't , but the Bloombergs are exceptionally small ) . they're also not standard specs ( 24 x 34 x 24 ) which could be a good thing if someone made the common mistake of changing floor tiles and not taking into account that a diswhasher had to go back in after.

    The fridges are a better looking option to a small LG or Danby fridge ( Niche appliances) Sadly they are not really adapted to the North American market as they are very small .( Liebher as much bigger models in the same style ... with a much bigger price tag too though! )

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thank you for that heads up about Blomberg Evelyne. It's always good to know these things. Funny you should mention my loyalty to Sub Zero/ Wolf. The Sub Zero part of that equation is still as strong as ever, but my thing for Wolf has been sorely tested over the last year. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm really impressed with some of the things Monogram's coming out with. Their 48" Pro range particularly.
