Whirlpool and CES Wrap-Up + $1000 Giveaway

Last week the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held in Las Vegas and it’s the largest show of the year.

Whirlpool was at CES and revealed some new, exciting appliances. They design products that fit seamlessly into your life and focus on three pillars: Connection, Expression, and Innovation. Check out my pre-show sneak peak post for more.

There are great videos of all the products at the Whirlpool CES Hub. Watch the videos and see these state-of-the-art appliances in action.

They revealed 4 key new appliances at the show:

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.

Whirlpool’s can.

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 – Goodbye boring laundry room. Give your laundry a style makeover with the new Duet® Designer Series from Whirlpool® .

Let 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.

 3. CoolVox Refrigerator – Meet the fridge of the future, the new CoolVox™, musically powered by Harman Kardon. This one can. There’s a great video about it here

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 – Here’s a video about the new microwaves. 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.

This is my final Whirlpool post and what has impressed me most about them is how focused they are on the consumer and believe in a future focused on you.

Their appliances are designed with you in mind and they really want to make your life easier, more streamlined,  and efficient. I really appreciate it when a company thinks in this way!

  1. The designs on the washer/dryer sets are awesome! What a trendy laundry room they would make!

  2. The design of these appliances are awesome.

  3. These appliances are very nice additions to the modern home. I’d like to control all my appliances from my smartphone!

  4. A trend for the future in my home is a refrigerator with the tablet built in to play and read recipes

  5. The washer and dryer duet- love!

  6. I’d like an oven with a built in thermometer INSIDE so I can verify the temperature.

  7. I would like to have smooth cook top on a center island with a computer table built in too and silicone trivets on the side also build it (but removable to clean them!)

  8. I’d love a glass stove top oven that cools instantly, for those times that food spills over and bakes on…making it impossible to clean.

    thanks for hosting another awesome giveaway!

  9. i would like to see computers built directly into appliances! (stove, refrigerators, etc.)

  10. I want a easier/better way to access online recipes while cooking. For now, I’m still printing them out, rather than taking electronic devices into the kitchen!
