Whirlpool® 20/20 – Your Future In Focus + $1000 Sweepstakes

One day I’d like to be a homeowner in San Diego. I’ve owned many homes over the years in various states, but right now I’m a renter. San Diego and most of California is a tough place to save enough for a down payment, but I’m trying.

As I daydream about the kind of house I’d like to own, the kind of appliances I’d like to put into said home are of great importance.

Whirlpool is unveiling four new products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 7-10. They design products that fit seamlessly into life and focus three pillars: Connection, Expression, and Innovation.

The Four New Products

1. Interactive Cooktop – When your cooktop can browse the internet and connect with your social network, the kitchen becomes a hub of communication and exploration within the home and beyond. Entertaining is revolutionized when you can plan your dinner party on the same device that cooks the meal. Invite and monitor your guest list, search for recipes, and make phone calls without leaving your kitchen island or using multiple devices. For now, this is a concept-only product.

2. Designer Duets – Bye, bye boring laundry room. The new Duet® Designer Series from Whirlpool® let’s your personal style shine with a collection of bold and beautiful designs to complement every look. Up your design aesthetic with a laundry pair that’s as fashionable as you with frontloading washers and dryers come in a variety of colors. Nobody helps you get laundry done faster than Whirlpool so you can focus on the things that matter.

Throughout the week of CES, consumers will have the chance to win a custom laundry pair of their own with the You Be The Designer Sweepstakes!

Create your perfect Duet® Design and enter for a chance to win a new Duet® Washer and Dryer!

3. CoolVox Refrigerator – With the new CoolVox™ sound system refrigerator concept, enabled by Bluetooth® wireless technology and the impeccable sound of Harman Kardon Speakers, you can play music and podcasts through the refrigerator directly from streaming through Bluetooth®-enabled devices, such as your mp3 player, tablet, or computer. There’s no need for extra wires, cords or speakers because this is all housed within the refrigerator. 4. MaxArt Microwave – In a unique showing of how design, art, and appliances can come together to create a functional piece of work representative of culture, Whirlpool® collaborated with two artists in Mexico to turn a daily-used appliance into an object of desire. Local art collective Los Contratistas turned a set of 50 Whirlpool microwaves into a colorful, modular installation representative of Mexican culture using graffiti techniques. The final pieces work together to create a unique take on the modern day appliance, enriched by culture, design and the arts. For now, this is a concept-only product. Whirlpool® 20/20 also brings its future-focused inspiration to consumers not attending the show with ongoing updates from the show floor at their digital hub http://ces.whirlpool.com

    A connected home is definitely picking up steam. A connected kitchen built around conserving power consumption and convenience is ideal. I would love to have product that I can communicate with via my phone or computer.

    If I owned my own home, I would love to have heated floors in my bathroom and a small electric fireplace in every bedroom, a large kitchen with two ovens and built in freezer in the cabinets in the kitchen and every home should come with a built in panic room or bomb shelter on their property, bay windows in the living room and glass panel doors in the kitchen with a screened porch

    An appliance that could self diagnose and tell you ahead of time if a part was starting to fail before it totally stops working would be a great product.
