The highest ranking factors were ease of use, performance and reliability (which includes how well the refrigerator works, how noisy it is and energy efficiency), and features.

 J.D. Power and Associate’s study was based on responses from almost 6,000 consumers who purchased Samsung Refrigerators in the last two years, and what did they like most?

New LG Refrigerator Technology Benefits Consumers, Planet

At a recent trade show in Berlin, LG unveiled its new plan for its line of refrigerators: better Linear Compressor technology. It allows refrigerators to free up space inside while making them more energy efficient, a focus that LG has taken seriously this past year.

New Refrigerator Technology Saves Energy, Saves Money, Saves Food
The third-generation designed Linear Compressor in LG’s new bottom-freezer units controls the cooling power of the refrigerator, which makes it 45 percent more efficient than the average A- rated refrigerator in Energy Star’s certification program. Energy Star officially gave the technology an A++ rating in Europe.

All around, the refrigerator is more efficient at preserving food, as well. It includes an Opti Temp Zone which optimizes the temperature in the refrigerator depending on the type of food, and their new Vita Light Zone technology provides internal LED lighting which helps food retain vitamins and nutrients in vegetables and fruit. According to LG, their refrigerator-freezers were also designed to preserve meat’s texture and taste when frozen, and maintain the flavor of foods for longer periods of time, which in turn saves you money on grocery bills.

LG Pushes for Green Appliance Development
This is the first of many products that LG is researching and developing in order to reduce their impact on the planet. LG plans to spend $18 billion in the next 10 years on “greening its operations,” as well as reducing their green house gas emissions by 40 percent, practicing electronics recycling (especially for refrigerators) and producing more efficient, ecofriendly appliances.

Shopping Green Saves You Money in More Ways Than One
LG’s new refrigerators now meet and even beat Energy Star certification thanks to the improved technology as well as other various features. The company offers a 10 year warranty on the third-generation linear compressor inside of their refrigerators, and you can find many of the new bottom-mount and French door styles for brand new at Appliance Factory Outlet. LG is also offering a $100 rebate for purchasing one of their new energy efficient refrigerators, so there’s never been a better time to upgrade your appliance.

New Electrolux Laundry Highlights: Wave-Touch & Largest Capacity Washers & Dryers

Electrolux is a kingpin in the laundry appliance market—they develop & produce washer/dryer sets that are not only efficient, ingenious and quiet, but they look fabulous, as well. Front load washing machines have been an increasing trend in the market and this is one brand that is leading the pack—and doing it very well.

Front-loading washers used to be the standard in the 1940s and 50s, but were phased out with top-loaders because they caused massive vibration and had to be anchored to the floor to keep them from moving all over the place. Electrolux’s new Perfect Balance System, showcased in their new line of laundry appliances, is the solution for just this problem. This state-of-the- Continue reading

You look over at the empty kitchen sink and your eyes glide to the dishwasher, and then back to your sink. The dishes aren’t in the sink… but it’s virtually silent in your kitchen. The swish-slosh-swish-slosh sounds you’re used to hearing don’t echo throughout your house anymore after dinner time.

This ain’t your mother’s dishwasher. It’s a Bosch.

And it’s the quietest dishwasher in the world. Continue reading
