DeLonghi EC702 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Maker

After buying and returning an inexpensive Espresso Maker that produced absolutely nothing close to a genuine espresso, I chose to get major about discovering a strong “entry-level” espresso device., the DeLonghi EC702 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Maker. It does appear that with espresso devices, the even more you’re prepared to pay, the even more you get, either in attributes, design, efficiency or long life. For me, in spite of my pal raving about his most recent $700 “it does every little thing other than reviewed the paper to you” equipment, as a first time house device purchaser, I desired to restrict my first expense.

LG WM-2101H Front Load Washer

I have always had top loader washing machines and wanted to try a front load washer but the prices were just too expensive. The ”LG WM-2101H Front Load Washer” is priced reasonably for all that it does.

This washer runs quietly and has 7 wash programs. The feature I like the best is the 19-hour delay wash that lets me run the complete cycle of pre-wash, wash, bleach and softener when it’s most convenient for me. If you have a busy lifestyle and limited time to take care of household chores, this will help you tremendously. The LG WM-2101H Front Load Washer also has the energy star rating which makes it cost efficient. The LG uses less water while still getting the clothes clean.

This LG WM-2101H Front Load Washer also has a “NeveRust” stainless steel drum and 5 motor spin speeds. It is easy to install and comes with a one  year warranty on parts and labor.

Keurig K Cup

Life is lived cheaply and nothing goes to waste. When presented with a Keurig K-Cup as a gift, there was a strong feeling that it would be hated. The price tag seemed more than had been spent in years. The K-Cup came with some coffee already, so it was not long before it got it’s first use.

Maytag Centennial MVWC500V Washer

Efficient. Dependable. Quiet. These are three words  that come to mind when I think about the Matag Centennial MVWC500V Washer. It is a 27″ top-loading machine that can fit almost anywhere. At 3.5 cubic feet, it takes up no room, at all. The bad parts about this washer is the price and the color options. At $459 and up, it is as expensive as a new front-load washer. And, you don’t get to choose a color! You get white with silver accents only.

The machine is equipped with 16 different automatic wash cycles with four speed combinations. As far as looks, it’s okay. The console shines a metallic color, the knobs are silver, and the wash basket is stainless steel. I love the fact that is doesn’t have an “end-of-cycle” buzzer. I’ve always hated that noise! It has several safety features for those of you accident prone people. It comes with a one year limited warranty, also. Just make sure that only one family is using it, or they will not cover it!

LG WM3987HW Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer

I purchased the LG WM3987HW Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer after moving into my first apartment. After a lot of trips to the laundromat, I decided it was time to stop wasting money one quarter at a time. I spent a lot of time on line and in  stores looking for the right set. Of course, apartments are not known for their abundant space so size was a factor.
