3 Largest Top Load Washer with Agitator Models for 2021

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Feb 25, 2021 8:30 AM 

 

Although front load washers are becoming more common on the market today, many people stand by the tried-and-true top load washer design. If you're looking for the largest top load washer with an agitator, you're in the right place. We've written about agitator washing machines before, but the main reason why people go for them is they use more water and can handle heavy soils better as a result, ideal for busy households and handling seriously dirty clothes! And if you want to wash a king-sized comforter, big loads of towels, and more, the larger the washing machine, the better! (For more info on choosing a new washer, check out our washing machine buying guide.)

In this article, we'll go over our top picks for the largest top load washer models with agitators on the market for 2021 to help you choose the best option for your needs. Remember: these XL models tend to have larger dimensions than standard models, so check that you have enough space in your laundry area and that your doors are wide enough to fit these models into your home!

The 7 Best French Door Refrigerator Models for 2021

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Feb 25, 2021 8:00 AM 

 

The French door refrigerator flips the traditional top freezer model and makes the refrigerator into a two-door design. The result? Tons of usable shelf space, less area needed for the doors to swing open than a single-door refrigerator, lots of door bins, and a lot of features… but that’s far from all of it! You get wider shelves than a side-by-side refrigerator and easier access to refrigerated items without bending over like with a top freezer model. (For more info on choosing a new refrigerator, check out our refrigerator buying guide!)

If you’re planning on upgrading your refrigerator for 2021 and considering a French door model, we’ve compiled a list of seven of the best French door refrigerator models of the year. They’re high-tech and dressed to impress from the great household brands you know and love! All of the models on our list come with LED lighting and are Energy Star rated. Except for model #1 from GE Appliances, they're all 36" wide. Prices range from $1,899 to $3,799, although holiday sales and rebates can cut these list prices by 20% or more. Let's dig in!

Posted by Todd Buehler on Feb 18, 2021 10:00 AM 

 

If you are looking for a new range and have only a 24 inch opening to work with, choices can be limited.
