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. I would love to have a washer and dryer in one! Would be amazing to pop your clothes in the washer and have them come out dry. No more rewashing clothes because you forgot to put them in the dryer.

  2. In my future home, I will need a double oven!

  3. I’d like more efficient kitchen storage that doesn’t involve a complete remodel.

  4. One appliance that is a dual washer/dryer would be a great space saver. And I’d love a self cleaning toilet, shower and tub :).

  5. I would love to have a convection oven in my future home; unlikely, but I can dream! I’ve also always wanted a swinging door going into the kitchen…

  6. That fridge is what I want for the future of my kitchen! Love everything about it, and it’s beautiful, too!

  7. The appliances in your post are what I see in my future! They are amazing! I would love to have a stove that cuts off automatically and everything is easy to clean.

  8. I would love to have access to my appliances through my computer, maintenance, start, stop and all things, notification if it’s not running correctly.

  9. I’d like to have a heated garage with a smart garage door opener.

    Thanks for the contest.

  10. I would love a home with ceiling to floor windows, stainless steel appliances and lots of marble

  11. I see my home of the future very similar to the ones depicted Ray Bradbury and to Whirlpool … a smart home that communicates with itself and with me. I’m pretty sure we’re very close to that, if we’re not already there. Amazing things have happened in the blink of an eye!

  12. As soon as I have an actual kitchen, these appliances would fit in perfectly.

  13. Sorry I missed Whirlpool @CES 2014 in my home state of Nevada this year. How awesome would it be to surprise my wife with a $1,000 VISA Gift Card to go towards her new Whirlpool Electric Stove for our Anniversary? Whirlpool is the appliance of choice in our household.

  14. I would love a self cleaning home.
