Sonic is an award winning washing machine designed for Miele, Kitchen of the Future, 2006. It is an ultrasonic washer/dryer. When in use two ultrasonic plates gently but thoroughly transfer vibrations removing all dirt particles from fabrics. As the machine is draining it acts as a vacuum removing moisture. An outfit could be washed, dried, ironed and ready to wear in 20 minutes. All the effort taken out of laundry! The design was intended to solve all problems caused by the rotary drum. It uses less energy, less water, less space and is kind to fabrics.
