It’s the reason I was set up with my now-fiance: height. He’s tall, I was told. But I digress…
I’m not the only one who thinks height matters. GE just got taller.
GE’s newest laundry innovation acknowledges that only 60% of consumers buy the washer dryer pedestals recommended to front-load laundry owners to prevent uncomfortable bending and hunching when loading and unloading.
The RightHeight washer and dryer’s built-in risers raise the machines 7 inches off the ground, making it just under 4 feet tall. A traditional laundry pedestal will raise the top of the machine to about 4-½ feet tall, which GE argues limits the function of the top of the machine to storage space instead of a folding surface, as illustrated below:
There are a lot of other features that are worth considering, but my favorite is single-item wash, promoted like this:
“Ditch the environmental guilt with this uniquely designed cycle that offers great wash performance for single items.”
In my house it’d be more like:
“Stop feeling like a failure for never getting around to the laundry and just wash outfits on demand!”
Perhaps most importantly, the RightHeight washer and dryer come in fun colors that either match a beautiful, trendy laundry room or grant respite from a hideous basement dungeon area like mine. Introduce some tall and handsome to your dark laundry room ;)
