Just buy decent brands - Miele and Bosch and other quality
brand stuff that wont have poor uptimes.
If you are filthy rich or a tad nerdy you could get one
of those internet fridges (they cost as much as a small car)
I'd be happy once a fridge/freezer can hold plenty of beer,
frozen pizza and a selection of goodies from Marks & Spencer's
food department (Although if you can afford a lot of M&S food you
could probably afford the internet fridge).
I kinda wouldnt mind one of those ice maker things on the front also.
Washing machines... hmm only one choice really - Dyson - their
stuff is cool - expensive too but they look the biz and use lots
of innovative technology and ideas etc.
I presume in a few years when IPV6 is commonplace everything will
be networkable. A toaster however will still come with only 2 settings:
untoasted and cremated.

Subject: [ILUG-Social] home appliances help needed!
I know this is a little (ok .. lightyears) off topic, but might make some
I've spec'ed lots of interesting things in the past, from servers to laser
parts, but I'm having great difficulty with two home appliances: Fidges and
The only feature that seems to differenciate washing machines is their price
and the coolness of their consoles. I've found one with a really flashy
console (electroluminescent display with lots of buttons:

out for? Auto-iron does not seem to feature on any of the models I've looked
Also anything I should look out for in fridges and electric ovens ?
I think I'll manage the toaster on my own :)
