The home has been a place of rest and recuperation, of comfort and relaxation. From its modest beginnings where toilets were outside and electricity was a luxury, those days seem to be unthinkable. Today, we have appliances within our home that do everything from preserve our food, heating our rooms, washing our clothes, and providing entertainment whether that be in the form of music, picture, or both. As our home appliances become more automated and unite into one voice-controlled appliance, technology has fully woven its way not only into our daily life through cell phones, but also through our home appliances. They make the everyday task simpler and less manual, allowing us to do what we like to do the best while at home; watch Netflix!
Who could live without the fridge? The great protector of chilled foods. Whether it be our milk that helps start the day in our coffee, or the cheese that tops our macaroni and cheese, or the ham that fills our sandwiches. The fridge is an essential household appliance. In fact, you’d be hard pushed, probably impossible task to find someone who does not have one firmly in their kitchen. Most even have an old 1980’s fridge in the garage for those excess christmas leftovers and meat that would soon spoil. Not to mention the secret ice-cream for those impromptu movie nights.
The Washing Machine
Long since the days where washing your clothes was a manual chore, the washing machine has revolutionised laundry day. From the endless options of temperature, spin cycles and soak choices, you can wash any item of clothing regardless of fabric or colour. Who could leave this off the list.
The funny boxed shaped object sitting in the corner of the kitchen, holds significant abilities. While often overlooked, this appliance has an array of abilities from defrosting chicken, to heating milk, melting butter or making popcorn, the microwave has to make this list. While often overlooked, who could live without the microwave?
Probably every young person’s most important home appliance, the computer (from PCs to laptops) is the essential gadget. Its capabilities allow us to do everything from work, to video editing, to shopping or watching netflix and youtube. The possibilities are endless and are the main reason that the computer is so important to each and every home. One can do everything on one device without even having to leave the house. Particularly handy for the lockdowns most of us are experiencing.
The most second used home appliance behind the computer would be the TV. The ever-growing screen size has allowed us to watch our celebrity idols, our favourite sports team, favorite film, or series on an even bigger screen. From simple watching to the new immersive 4D experience that throws you into the action. The TV is so essential, that most people have them in their bedrooms too, who can say more essential than that?
