We’ve been in Nicholes Manor for a little under four years, and I’m still looking to get my kitchen to the place that I want it. Yes. I moved into a brand new, built from the ground up, house and didn’t like the kitchen. Judge your mother. Since most of the appliances that we have, came with the home, an upgrade is necessary, and I’m pretty sure I’m just going to wipe out the entire plugin community.
I specifically need a fridge, dishwasher, stove/oven, and maybe a microwave. A refrigerator that houses all of the food that my children seem to eat at breakneck speeds, a dishwasher to wash the five thousand cups we seem to go through in a day, a stove and an oven to cook on and in, and make me happy, and a microwave – possibly for the express purpose of popcorn in a pinch.
I was happy to get a chance to check all of these LG appliances out in the Best Buy Suite at Mom 2.0 conference in Pasadena this month. It’s nice to see a setup before you start looking to buy, and this setup was marvelous! Everything was matte black AND stainless steel, and I was completely enthralled. We do a LOT of entertaining, and well, we cook and eat a lot too, so we needed something that could house all of the food that comes through our doors.
LG INSTAVIEW DOOR-IN-DOOR
These cutting edge refrigerators bring distinctive styling and innovation to your kitchen with a tinted glass panel that allows you to see inside the easy-access door without letting the cold air out. Simply knock twice on the glass to illuminate the contents within.
LG PROBAKE CONVECTION OVEN
If you’re a baker, you’ll love the new update to the LG Probake Convection Oven. Like professional-style ranges, the heating element has been moved from the bottom of the oven to the back wall for optimal heat distribution. You enjoy consistent browning on top and bottom, and every cookie that’s baked to perfection.
LG’s exclusive Matte Black stainless steel combines the timeless look of stainless steel with a luxe & low-gloss matte finish that compliments any kitchen décor.
These LG smart kitchen appliances are wi-fi and voice-enabled, allowing you to control your kitchen appliances remotely — from changing settings, to checking the status, or turning on or off. These smart appliances make life easier.
Best Buy is offering several specials on their LG Appliances to get you started on your appliance upgrades!
Summer Kitchen Bundle (5/10 – 7/11)
- Purchase a 4-piece Kitchen Bundle and receive up to $400 INSTANT rebate. LG and LG Studio models are eligible for this offer.
- The offer covers both Memorial Day and Independence Day.
That’s not it though. All of your appliances are able to pair with your home’s smart devices such as Alexa or Google Home to make little things easier. For example:
- “Alexa, turn on ice plus for my party tonight”
- “Ok Google, how much time is left on the range.”
- Or — use your SmartThinQ app to check the time remaining
- Receive a notification that the cycle has finished – this would be especially good for those teens that don’t know how to unload dishwashers, because there’s nothing to let them know when the load is done.
LG SIDEKICK — PART OF THE LG TWINWASH SYSTEM
Washing clothes should be simple. It really, honestly should be. Also, starting a load should be able to be done from an app when you are a mother with young children, old children, husbands, no children, or a single person. Honestly. Walking down into a basement alone when no one is at home more than twice in a laundry cycle is no bueno. I SAID IT! I’m afraid of being in my basement in the dark, unless it’s summertime and my house is over 75 degrees. Figure it out yourself. I’m not here to make sense, I’m here to share stuff.
And if you look very closely, you can see that on the washing machine below (on the left) there is a small sidekick washer disguised as a pedestal. It pairs with almost any front loading LG unit so you can wash two loads at the same time. Perfect for delicates, or things you just don’t want to mix with the clothes of children.
LG Laundry message/theme: LG washers and dryers with SmartThinQ® technology will change the way you do laundry. You can start and stop wash cycles remotely, get updates when laundry is done and even receive reminders about scheduled maintenance.
Here’s just a few examples of LG’s Smart Appliance Capabilities
- “Alexa, how much time is left on my washer”
- Or — receive SmartThinQ app notification that your wash cycle has finished
- “Ok Google, turn on my dryer”
- Or — receive SmartThinQ app notification that your dryer cycle has finished
LG Ultimate Laundry Room Rebate (5/10 – 7/11)
- Purchase a qualifying laundry bundle and receive up to a $400 rebate
Are you in the market for new appliances? I’m REALLY antsy about upgrading our kitchen and laundry room (and actually finishing the laundry room and basement in general) but if I had to pick ONE thing to get from this list, it would totally be the refrigerator.
