t almost looks like a toy, and yet this mini-dishwasher is a true hi-tech marvel. Not only does it work as well a dishwasher, it also dry-sanitizes glasses, masks, phones and other everyday objects. And it does so all in less than 50 cm.

  • What it is Bob by Daan Tech, the super-compact dishwasher for two.
  • What makes it special It is a full-fledged dishwasher, but it is considerably small: measuring in at just 34x49x49cm. Made to wash two place settings, in addition to being super-compact it is also ecological (made from recycled plastic); and thanks to a special function it is even able to dry-sanitize objects with UV rays. It not by chance that it won first prize at IFA Berlin 2020.
  • How it is made It is a state-of-the-art dishwasher. Made from recycled plastic and colorful, it has a 10-year warranty and the highest-level of efficiency. Despite its smaller dimensions (it weighs 10 kg and measures 34x49x49cm), it guarantees a wash cycle of two place settings in 20 minutes or of glasses in 15 minutes using 2.9 liters of water. Additionally, it can be used as a UVC (ultraviolet ray) high-tech device that allows for the dry-sanitizing of many objects in a few minutes—from keys to masks, baby bottles and small toys. It does so all without a hydraulic connection because Bob has an independent water tank that reduces water consumption by five times compared to handwashing. Lastly, the “touch-to-open” door guarantees the interruption of the wash in case of opening during operation. Plus, it is programmed to automatically open itself at the end of the wash to allow the dishes to dry naturally.
  • Whose idea it is Daan Tech, the young French company founded in 2016 that aims for innovative projects capable of resolving concrete problems by looking to the future. Its know-how stems from the experience of an ex-leading factory in the home appliance sector in Western France and includes mechanical design, plastic injection, and electronic and software development. Bob is the brand’s first product: the smallest, fastest and most advanced autonomous dishwasher with an eco-friendly core.
  • We chose it because… It is a tiny jewel of engineering that is perfect for confirmed bachelors in a small studio apartment, but also at the office or in a vacation home for washing mugs left on the desk or sanitizing objects wherever. Moreover, it is green as it reduces consumption and is made from recycled plastic.
