Whirlpool CES 2014 Sneak Peek

This years Consumer Electronics Show is happening in Las Vegas on Jan. 7 – 10.  CES is where brands bring their latest and greatest to debut and this year Whirlpool is revealing four amazing new products.  I got a small sneak peek and am excited to share a little info with you!


The product I am most excited about is the Interactive Cooktop concept.  I am always looking up recipes on my phone or iPad while I am cooking and am always worried I will ruin my gadgets having them in the kitchen.  Whirlpool takes away that worry by putting the gadgets in the kitchen for you!  The interactive cooktop has a cook anywhere surface that also serves as the kitchen island, so you can go from helping with homework to cooking dinner all in one place.  Surfing the web for that report your son is writing and the recipe you wanted to try from Pinterest.



Whirlpool continues their innovation with the CoolVox Refrigerator.  If you are a family that loves dancing in the kitchen, you will love the sound system refrigerator concept.  You can stream music and podcasts through your Bluetooth® enabled devices through Harman Kardon Speakers in your refrigerator!!  If you aren't the dancing type, you can listen to your favorite instructional cooking podcasts that way too!!  

If the aesthetics of your kitchen is on the top of your list, you will love the focus Whirlpool is placing on customizing everyday appliances with your personal style.  At CES they are debuting the MaxArt Microwaves.  Whirlpool® brand collaborated with two artists in Mexico to turn a daily-used appliance, the microwave, into a work of art.



If it is your laundry room that needs a centerpiece, Whirlpool has you covered there too!  The new Duet® Designer Series offers a collection of bold and beautiful designs for your laundry pair.  You get all of the technology of the Duet® Washer and Dryer in a prettier package!

If you want to know more about the newest products from Whirlpool®, they will be providing ongoing updates from the CES show floor at their digital hub:http://ces.whirlpool.com.

We're midway through finishing our basement. We pay cash for everything so we're waiting until we have enough money to do the drywall and flooring. It's a big space (over 900 sq ft) so it's a costly proposition. We have great thoughts about using that space for our family: kids' sleepovers, movie nights, a play area for our youngest, a pool table for Daddy and his friends, and some extra storage in the back for games/toys. Our goal is to finish it by year's end.

Heather B said...

My future kitchen would definitely be an open floor plan and plenty of space for when I have family and friends over. I would also love to have a organized pantry with a place for everything.

Beth Jackson Klosterboer said...

My stove top is in need of replacement. Three of the knobs no longer work and part of the grate is broken. The interactive cook top looks amazing. It would be amazing to have that installed in my kitchen.

The refrigerator with a sound system is neat, I enjoy listening to music when I cook. I think it would be neat to have a TV too because sometimes I’m watching a movie in the family room and it would be nice to be able to continue watching it when I’m in the kitchen cooking

My idea for the future of my home: I would actually like to own a home of my own, firstly, and if I did have a home, I would want solar panels on the roof, and all energy-saving appliances in the kitchen, laundry room, sensor faucets throughout, excellent venting system over the gas range, and a nice open layout that makes moving around in the house, a breeze :)

Kerry said...

I think for the future, it would be great to have my on line recipe right at my finger tips in an easily accessed area. Maybe a screen right on my refrigerator since for me, that is right in the middle of my cooking area. Right now I use my iPhone and have to constantly keep pushing the home button when it goes black while I stir, or boil, etc.

My idea of my future home would be very automation. Such as the washer and dryer doing laundry and folding clothes for me, a stove top that helps me cook easier, and a fridge that can tell me what I need while I'm in the market. :) Am I asking for too much?

My future home needs a much quieter ice maker. Our fridge doesn't have a hook-up, so we have a free standing ice maker that rattles. A quieter one would make for much more pleasant entertaining and a quieter daily life!

The Cook Anywhere Surface is genius. My home of the future would include a water and energy efficient dishwasher that keeps dishes sterile until you unload (apparently bacteria can form if you leave clean dishes sitting overnight in a moist washer). Now if only they could make one that put the dishes away...

I'd love a slow cooker that worked with me. I am a full time, working mom, so a slow cooker is a great tool. But even the ones with the timers, can leave my food a bit dried out by the time I get home. I'd love one that would start cooking with enough time to be done by the time I get home, not just on warm, like the one I currently have.

Kim (Randominities) said...

My dream appliance would be one where things would get done quicker. I would love to just throw my laundry in a bin and have the washer sort through the clothes, fill the washer and when it was done dry them. That way I'd only have to put the clothes in or out. Or maybe they could work on making a Rosie Robot like on the Jetsons. That would be perfect.
