Top 5 Appliance Features to Simplify Your Life

by Albert Lee Appliance

Life gets busy, and especially during the holiday season, it becomes increasingly difficult to find time to finish chores like cooking and laundry. And when you’re overwhelmed by all the housework, you can forget all about squeezing in time to relax. Luckily, your cooking and cleaning appliances can help streamline your daily routine so you can untie your apron and enjoy the holidays.  

Even if you don’t live in the lap of luxury, you can feel like you’re living in a Broadmoor mansion with luxurious smart appliances. With Wi-Fi and smart-enabled technology, appliances are full of efficient luxury features to make your life in the kitchen and laundry room easier than ever.  

Modernize your home, upgrade your appliances, and take your cooking and cleaning space to the next level these 5 elevated appliance features that define nothing but luxury.  

1. LG InstaView Window  

The LG Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator (LFXS26596S) with its InstaView window has transformed what a luxury refrigerator can look like. For all you secret snackers and midnight munchers, this fridge will greet you with open arms. Knock twice and the window and the exterior of the appliance will light up, allowing you to see the contents inside without letting the cold air escape. And when you’re on the go or paying the refrigerator a fly-by visit, the Door-In-Door feature provides easy access to beverages and snacks with added organization and storage. 

This smart refrigerator comes with the Door-in-Door design so you’ll always have a variety of storage options with bins and shelves. And whether you prefer to keep things organized or need the storage space to hold all your holiday leftovers, you can rely on the InstaView fridge to easily display and contain your favorite dishes.  

Associated features include: 

  • Slim SpacePlus Ice System 
  • 26 cubic feet of ample storage space  
  • PrintProof fingerprint and smudge resistant finish 
  • Door Cooling+ to keep door contents at peak freshness 
  • LG SmartThinQ app to control key features and get important notifications from anywhere  
  • Multi-Air Flow System is designed to maintain superior humidity and temperature levels 

Best of all, the LG French Door Refrigerator is not only luxurious, but it's also Energy Star certified. 

2. Samsung Flex Duo 

Flex Duo is part of the Samsung Free Standing Gas Range (NX58K7850SS), offering multiple options for multitasking in the kitchen. The dual-door oven enables you to cook several dishes at once with separate temperature controls and convection systems. The soft-close door shuts gently without any noise, putting an end to squeaky hinges, and the removable Smart Divider allows you to cook several dishes simultaneously with little to no mixing of odors or flavors.  

The stovetop is equipped with five burners and a middle burner that can be used as a griddle to accommodate large pots and pans. Dual convection distributes heat throughout the oven for faster and more even cooking and saves up to 30 percent more time than conventional ovens. And if you’re working multiple cooking stations at once during your holiday meal prep, a 5.8 cubic feet capacity can easily accommodate a big roast, multiple casserole dishes, or several racks of cookies. 

Associated features include: 

  • Wi-Fi connectivity gives you the power to remotely pre-heat your oven or adjust temperatures and cooking times  
  • Gliding Rack helps you pull out racks to check your dishes easily with its ball bearings 
  • Wok grate, included, provides even heat for stir-frying food  
  • Go quickly from a simmer to high heat with 18K BTU of power 

When you're all done cooking, this luxury oven has a self-cleaning mode with a steam-clean option. 

3. LG TurboWash and TurboSteam  

This LG Front Load Washer (WM3600HVA) is Energy Star rated and whisper-quiet, but ultra-powerful with 1,300 revolutions per minute (RPM). There are nine different wash modes and steam-cleaning to boot. You can even wash two loads at once with the LG SideKick Pedestal Washer. 

These washers are easy on the eyes and easy on your allergies. Certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), the Allergiene Cycle removes over 95% of pet dander, dust, and allergens, keeping your home allergy-free.

LG also has your smart dryer needs covered with the Black Steel Front Load Electric Dryer (DLEX3900B)  

Laundry “day” can be reduced to minutes with the quick and easy TurboSteam dryer technology. When there’s no time for a full wash cycle, TurboSteam cleans fabrics and eases wrinkles in just 10 minutes. You can start the dryer from the comfort of your home and even reorder dryer sheets or fabric softener so you never run out again. And with Sensor Dry, you won’t have to worry about snags and warped material—the dryer adjusts drying time to save energy with less wear and tear on clothes.

4. Bosch 3rd Rack Dishwasher  

A flexible extra door dishwasher simplifies your cleanup routine—sure sounds like a luxury feature to us. As part of this Bosch Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher (SHP865ZP5N), the expandable wings easily lower to accommodate more of your deeper items while adjustable tines let you customize the rack’s loading space to fit awkward bulky items. 

The AquaStop leak protection system contains leaks and any water that builds up in the wash bin, giving you the ultimate peace of mind whether you are away or at home. And with PrecisionWash, you can feel confident your dishes are being cleaned—intelligent sensors check the progress of your dishware throughout the cycle and powerful spray arms target every plate and platter with precision.  

The best part is, Bosch dishwashers are whisper-quiet, so you never have to worry about disrupting anyone in the house to run the dishwasher. Noise reduction is approached in 18 phases including multiple insulation layers, grindless food filtration, EcoSilence motor system, and a sound-absorbing base.

You can skip adding detergent to every load—with the Load & Go Dispenser, simply add detergent once and skip refills for 40 wash cycles. And when you need help removing everyday stains in-between full cycles, use the front-load washing machine’s Steam Clean option which gets deep into fabrics with increased wash action and heat. 

This large-capacity washer provides enough space to clean over three baskets of clothing in a single load. And the 4.5 cubic feet washer capacity can handle larger, bulkier items like towels and bedding with ease. For your small, lightly soiled loads, there is a 15-minute Quick Wash cycle to treat your fabrics fast when you’re in a rush, and you can even customize up to 35 of your own wash cycles to get the right type of fabric care for whatever you're washing.
