If you are shopping for a new refrigerator, you want to be sure to look at all of the top refrigerator brands.

Quietest Dishwashers Under $1,000 - Bosch vs KitchenAid

Posted by Todd Buehler on Aug 19, 2019 10:00:00 AM

 

Statistics show that dishwashers are a necessity for most families, right up there with clothes washers and dryers. Having an appliance clean up after a meal rather than hand washing is preferred as people are busy with work, school, sports, activities, and hopefully the occasional relaxing movie night. Plus, dishwashers use less water than hand washing and can sanitize dishes and cutlery with super-hot water.

Many spacious homes have the kitchen either open to the living quarters or very close by within listening distance, so having a quiet dishwasher can be critical. There's nothing worse than hearing a continuous humming sound while you're trying to read a book or talk with friends and family.  In some cases, dishwashers can run over two hours depending on the cycle, so quietness matters! 

Let's compare Bosch and KitchenAid and take a close look at two of their quietest dishwashers under $1,000. (Before we dig in, check out our writeup on dishwasher decibel levels for more info!)

Best Clothes Dryer - LG vs Maytag - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Aug 10, 2019 9:15:00 AM

 

If you think of your clothes dryer as being one of the simplest appliances in your home, think again. Most people think that it just turns a drum and blows heat, but there's quite a bit going on inside that big metal box! If you are in the process of researching a new dryer, you know there are many brands, models, and features to consider (you can check out our dryer buyer's guide for more info). We'll compare LG and Maytag to help you determine the best clothes dryer brand for you.

In order to compare the two models, we need to first look at some of the technology behind drying clothes. Clothes dryers have a variety of safety features to not only go easy on your clothes by preventing over-drying, but also keep your home safe if something malfunctions. The average system will have a temperature range of 80 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on selected cycles and settings. There are two main ways for a dryer to keep track of the drying progress: moisture sensors and thermistors.

American Made Washers - Speed Queen vs Whirlpool - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Aug 8, 2019 5:31:00 PM

 

As you research your next washing machine, consider the brands Speed Queen and Whirlpool. Both are well known names in the US laundry industry. Both companies are known for making quality products in both the commercial and domestic markets, and their laundry products are manufactured in the United States: Speed Queen in Wisconsin and Whirlpool in Ohio.

The laundry industry has changed over the years and washers have been redesigned to use less water and electricity. These changes have been challenging for the industry because these new washer designs require customers to make adjustments and changes in the way that they do laundry. With less detergent and water used per cycle along with longer cycle times, many customers are missing their old machines that had deep water washes, 35 minute cycle times, and excellent cleaning results.

However, there are many excellent washers available that will do the job well while saving energy. Speed Queen and Whirlpool are on the leading edge of this industry and are making products that are energy efficient while providing excellent cleaning results and durability. Let's compare two of their best top loading agitator washers.
