I had a visit from the appliance fairy on Friday.
Okay; there was no fairy involved, and the crew of burly men who came to my house might take offense at that. But Friday I got the first shipment of my new Frigidaire appliances.
“Hey, your truck says Electrolux!” I pointed out, because I’m helpful that way.
“Electrolux owns Frigidaire,” the nice gentleman explained. Of course, I knew that, but given that they’re going to be having bloggers take pictures of their trucks and stuff, I’m surprised they didn’t plaster the Frigidaire logo all over the place. Heh.
But all was forgiven once I got a look inside the truck. Because inside the truck? Inside the truck was lots and lots of boxes containing shiny things.
I was so excited, I almost forgot to snap some “before” shots, but I did get a couple. Here’s my old fridge, and here’s my old washer and dryer. For the record, there’s nothing wrong with my old fridge. I mean, it’s boring, but it’s fine. But I have hated this washer and dryer with a passion ever since my husband and I got married two years ago. The washer becomes unbalanced if you look at it funny and the dryer has a *BZZZZZZZT* that scares the bejeesus out of me every single time, and then the clothes usually aren’t even dry. Hmph.
Three hours later I had all kinds of awesome new machines. And the sad part is that then I up and left town, so I haven’t really even gotten to play with them yet. I’ll have to report back once I’ve played with them. But in the meantime, I just have to tell you one thing. Wait; two things. First: Have you ever seen anything sexier than my new washer and dryer, even considering that I can’t open the pedestal under the dryer more than a few inches? And second: I did sneak a quick test-spin of the washer before I left, and it was virtually silent. The water pouring down into the drum was louder than the spinning. I may have swooned.
Once I’m back home again, the rigorous product testing begins. Woo!
