New Electrolux Front Load Washers and Dryers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Steve Sheinkopf

Electrolux has changed their washer lineup for 2016-2017. Front load laundry is Electrolux’s biggest single category in the U.S. It is pretty amazing, because they only produced compact laundry outside the U.S until recently. 

This year's iteration includes SmartBoost technology. It premixes the detergent and water before the cycle starts, so the clothes are cleaner than any other specialty cycle from any other brand.

New Samsung AddWash Washer & Dryer (Review/Rating/Prices)

by Jessica Petrino

How many times did you forget to add a sock or outfit after you started your wash cycle? You would have to cancel the cycle, wait for the water to drain and the latch to release or perhaps you just wait for the next wash (which is why I have so many mismatched socks).

New Samsung Family Hub Counter Depth Refrigerator (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Steve Sheinkopf

I have always been fond of technology for assisting you in your kitchen. It has not always worked out. About 15 years ago, I was sure Whirlpool had a great new range. The Polera had the ability to refrigerate, defrost and cook your food.

The New LG Sidekick Pedestal Washer (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Amy Ross

If you like the modern styling, LG was the first to design it. Every other brand has copied it.

Now LG has designed a pedestal washer to fit under their washer. Now you can have two washers for washing different fabrics at the same time. (You've seen the TV commercials with the clothes fighting each other).

Should You Buy Black Stainless Steel Appliances? (Reviews/Ratings)

by Steve Sheinkopf

About 15 years ago, the Wall Street Journal called us. They wanted our opinion on new finishes and whether this was the end of stainless as a design trend. Our response was stainless steel will continue as the dominant finish for the foreseeable future.

As it turns out, we were right and they have never called us back. There are again a number of new finishes available, but black stainless is very different. It is worth your consideration (maybe). So in this post, we will look at all the options briefly and review black stainless.
