Appliances You Can't Live Without

by Bradlows 29 October 2019

So you've finally left the nest and you've moved into your own place. It's an exciting time as you go searching for your first furniture pieces. You will need more than furniture though. If you prepared a list of appliances you couldn't live without, how long would it be? Before you answer that question, imagine a typical day in your life. Despite the fast pace of modern living, with its uncertainties and challenges, many conveniences and small delights are because of having the right appliances.

Here are appliances you can't live without:

The Refrigerator

The next time you make the journey to your fridge for a piece of pie or your midnight snack, consider what life would be like without that big cold box. Can you imagine a braai without ice for your drink? Basically you wouldn't be able to keep food fresh. Many of the staples you enjoy like eggs, milk, cheese, meat and butter would have to be purchased in small quantities or not at all.

If you're looking to go big, then the Hisense 516L Side by Side Fridge, with its brush stainless steel INOX finish, is an absolute must-have! It delivers energy efficiency, has a multi airflow no frost system, inner LED digital display, removable tempered glass shelves, and multiple modes for different needs. The Sansui 300lt Bottom Freezer Fridgeis an excellent choice for smaller homes or budgets.

The Washing Machine

As long as people have been wearing clothes, they've had to come up with ways to clean them. If you lived a couple of thousand years ago, you'd be beating your clothes on a stone to get rid of the stains. Fast forward a few hundred years, and the stones were replaced with wooden boards for scrubbing. Both processes were slow and backbreaking.

Today, we're lucky enough to own modern washing machines that use a two-drum system to clean clothes. The inner drum holds the clothes near the agitator, while the outer drum holds the water in the machine. When the washing cycle is complete, the inner drum spins, draining the water via hundreds of holes. The only thing left to decide is whether you want a twin tub or top loader.

The Television

Do you remember life before television? Our grandparents huddled around the radio to listen to news and entertainment programming. Before that, they relied on their newspapers and the entertainment value of their friends and neighbours. With the invention of the box with moving pictures and sound, the world was available at a flip of the dial.

Today, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to entertainment and the televisions we watch it on. You can go big with The JVC 65-inch UHD LED Smart TV. This massive TV comes with a colourful, bright and wide picture and the smart capabilities allow you to Netlfix or surf the internet. If you're looking for an affordable, basic but quality TV then opt for the Hisense 32-inch (81cm) HD LED TV.

These are the top few appliances you can’t live without, however there are other appliances that make life a bit easier.
