4 Products To Consider

Have a peek at the 4 best values, until Presidents Day. Coincidentally, the top 4 have serious rebates...

1. Frigidaire FGHD2433KB - Why: This is a good dishwasher at $349. At $99 after rebates, this is a darn (add the adjective here) good dishwasher.

2. Bosch WFVC6450 - Why: Bosch may manufacture the best washer in the industry at 4.4 cubic foot, steam and eco-cycle. They are also not manufacturing laundry after 2011. This machine is now $449 after $500 in rebates...Rebates are more than the purchase price.

3. Electrolux EWFL65HTS and EMED65HTS - Why: It's last years, and at $1499 for the pair, it is approximately $1800 less than the 2011.....

4. JennAir Slide-Ins - Why: There are $200 rebates even though the brand has few competitors in this segment. Add a few more pieces and receive more rebates, a free dishwasher and the key to the JennAir corporate condo in Chicago.

    I currently own an 8 year-old Whirlpool Duet front load washer. I haven't had any problems with it at all. However, that Bosch deal sounds pretty tempting. A few questions for you:

    1. Is the Bosch more energy and water efficient than my current Whirlpool?
    2. What is the projected lifespan of front-load washers (i.e., how many more years of service can I expect from my Whirlpool and how long is the Bosch anticipated to last)? Obviously, usage is a huge variable here, but any general guidelines would be helpful.



  2. Bosch is more efficient than the Whirlpool, and the projected life span for all appliances is 8-12 years.

    If the Duet is working properly then stay with the unit. It is efficient enough, and the payback for switching to the more efficient machine is probably 6-8 years

    Doesnt seem worth it
