CES is the annual place to be for emerging technology trends in all areas of our lives. From cars to printers, appliances to health & fitness gadgets, CES 2015 amazed attendees with a glimpse at current and future gadgets and innovations designed to solve a problem or make our lives easier.
And as always, the appliances were what captured my attention, especially the new LG washer & dryer and refrigerator unveiled at the LG Blogger Breakfast at CES 2015.
I was so excited to be invited by LG to check out their fantastic new machines and enjoy some breakfast while we learned about the new features.
The new machines were presented to us by David VanderWaal, LG’s Senior Marketing Leader for Home Appliances & Consumer Electronics.
I had actually met Dave previously when I worked with LG and their TrueSteam Diswasher in 2012. He truly understands that the most successful products are the ones that work for the people who use them, in the way that they use them. Which is why LG is always looking for input from those of us who actually use the products every day.
It’s clear that the new appliances revealed at CES were a direct result of the needs of everyday families.
LG Twin Wash System + Mini Washer
LG introduces an entirely new washing machine category. Its front-loading washer’s revolutionary TWIN Wash™ System, the first of its kind, enables two separate loads to be washed simultaneously. Incorporating a space-efficient mini washer in the pedestal, overall cycle times are reduced with fewer loads required. With TurboWash™ and TurboSteam™ technologies, wash cycles are faster while Wi-Fi and NFC translate to an array of intriguing smart connectivity options, including compatibility with LG’s HomeChat™ messaging service.
Holy cow this is REVOLUTIONARY. Can you imagine the time savings of doing 2 loads of laundry at once? In my house we have half large loads and half small loads at any given time. The new LG Twin Wash System would cut my laundry time IN HALF. Whoa, this is life changing.
Other features of the LG Twin Wash System:
- Large capacity
- Combined spin & rinse cycles reduces washing time (up to 30 minutes per load)
- More accessible & ergonomic door placement
- Less detergent spills
- TurboSteam reduces shrinkage, eliminates more wrinkles and has a faster refresh cycle
- Smart technology allows you to monitor and control your laundry with a smartphone app
- Energy efficient
- Min washer base is sold separately and can be used with other pedestal washers
The new LG Twin Wash System would truly revolutionize the way I do laundry!
LG Mega-Capacity Double Door-In-Door Refrigerator
LG introduces its first double Door-in-DoorTMMega-Capacity refrigerator (Model LPXS34886C) in 2015. The award-winning “door-in-door” concept pioneered by LG is among the highlights of cutting-edge refrigerator innovations to be unveiled at the 2015 International CES® in Las Vegas next week.
This new model, which is expected to be ENERGY STAR® certified, has two independent Door-in-DoorTM compartments, giving you the ultimate in convenience — better organization and easy access — while maximizing conservation of cold air. The right Door-in-DoorTM is accessible from both the outside with a simple push of a button as well as from the inside, making it easy to load with often-used items like snacks, drinks, lunches and more. The left Door-in-DoorTM provides additional easy access storage space via a trigger on the bottom of the door. By utilizing LG’s innovative Door-in-DoorTM feature without opening the entire refrigerator, cold air loss is reduced by up to 47 percent to help keep food fresh longer.
This refrigerator takes convenience to the next level! Double door-in-door is a time saver, energy saver, and perfect for families who are constantly in and out of the fridge. It also makes it so much easier to find the items you use on a regular basis by keeping them from getting buried in the back of the fridge. The double door freezer makes so much more sense than a big drawer that allows things to get buried in the bottom of the freezer.
One of my favorite features of this amazing new fridge is the finish. I have stainless steel and when clean it looks amazing. But when it is dirty and full of fingerprints it looks terrible. The LG Mega Capacity Double Door-In-Door has a patterned, tempered glass finish that looks beautiful yet resists fingerprints and smudges. No more yelling at my kids to stop touching the surface of the fridge!
Other features of the LG Mega-Capacity Double Door-In-Door Refrigerator:
- 34 cubic feet of interior space
- Keep food fresher longer with door-in-door
- EasyLift Bins to make it easy to adjust the internal compartments
- Smart Diagnosis makes it easy to troubleshoot problems over the phone
- Fresh air filter
- Interior LED lighting
Oh and as an added bonus, my reflection in this fridge is VERY slimming. So on top of innovative, unique and family-friendly features, you get a fridge that makes you look good too.
LG prides itself on creating products designed to make our lives easier, and these brand new appliances have raised the bar! Time savings and convenience are key features and for our busy family, LG hit a home run with the new features they revealed at CES.Note: I attended the LG blogger breakfast at CES 2015 as a guest of LG.
