While taking turns bashing our antique dishwasher last week, my roommate mentioned how much water it wastes.
And it does.
We can hear the 12-gallon tsunami rage against the Cuisinart and CorningWare.
But, I told her, the washing machine is muuuuuch worse.
And for what? A puny capacity and agitator-worn blouses.
Desirable: Electrolux Perfect Steam Washer
Oh, how I long for the days when I had an Electrolux steam washer and dryer. The steam dryer quickly unwrinkled dresses without me unloading the ironing board. And with the 18-minute wash/18-minute dry feature (the next generation laundry shortens the wash-dry time to 30 minutes total!), my running clothes were ready before I was on Saturday mornings.
Everything came out of the washer super clean– even when I stuffed it full and ran the cold cycle — and nearly dry. Plus, I got to do the Kelly Ripa-hipcheck-to-open-the-door move. Sweet.
However, at nearly $2,600, I wouldn’t have any clothes left to wash.
Acquirable: Frigidaire Affinity Ready Steam Washer
Frigidaire is made by Electrolux, so the washing machines bear many similarities. The Affinity washer‘s capacity of 4.4 cubic feet is only 0.3 cubic feet less than the Electrolux.
What’s that? A pair of shorts?
The quick cycle time bumps up a smidgen to a 25-minute wash/25-minute dry (time is money, people).
Plus, you can get a $100 Visa gift card through Sept. 26.
