If you haven’t shopped for appliances recently, you are in for a pleasant surprise. Today’s appliances make time spent in the kitchen simpler, more convenient, and more productive. Let’s take a look at some of the high-tech features available.
The Latitude refrigerator by Whirlpool takes away the need to use a measuring cup. If a recipe calls for one cup of water, the refrigerator will measure and dispense the desired quantity with just the touch of a button. The Latitude also has Sixth Sense Technology. This feature senses the temperature of the food in the refrigerator, automatically adjusting the temperature as necessary to maintain freshness.
Kitchenaid seems to have the hottest items on the market when it comes to modern dishwashers. With 32 power scrubber jets, extra cleaning power always gets pots and pans clean the first time. There is a built in food chopper designed to finely chop food into fine particles that will travel easily down the drain. The Silverware Blast feature is an additional nozzle centered directly over the silverware basket. At just 47 decibels, it is the quietest dishwasher on the market.
The Maytag Gemini range has a precision baking system. This ensures that the temperature throughout the oven will remain consistent within 5 degrees of the set temperature. This oven also has a hidden bake element. That is, the baking element is built into the base of the oven. This prevents food from spilling onto the element. Pouring a cup of water in the bottom of this range allows for steam cleaning in a snap.
Maytag Bravos is the model to look for if shopping for a new washer and dryer. With no agitator, the washer features the largest capacity available for a top load washer at five cubic feet. This allows for three times the load size as a normal washing machine. The washer is also Energy Star qualified, meeting government standards for energy and water conservation. The dryer is also well equipped. Its extra large capacity allows laundry to be steamed, which removes wrinkles. The Sensor Dry feature automatically stops the cycle once the clothes are dry. As with the washer, this is an energy conservation feature.
Shopping for appliances is not the boring task it was in the past. A trip to your local appliance store will provide examples of advancements in the appliance industry that will leave you wondering how you can live without one of these modern appliances.
