The world's most exclusive kitchen appliances

Recently the world's most exclusive kitchen appliances were launched. They are called Grand Cuisine and are built from a base of the appliances professional chefs use in their cooking.

Basically they are redesigned and adapted to meet the knowledge and usage patterns, as well as the design requirements, for domestic use. To help out, you also get a professional chef to help you learn to use the new kitchen.

Vacuum Cleaners Review Singapore

I have been looking into vacuum cleaners to find a good choice to use in Singapore. After searching the world for good reviews, I have come to the following conclusions.

1) Use a vacuum cleaner with bags if you can. There is less dust coming out through the exhaust of the vacuum cleaner, than it is on a bagless one. You can easily stock up on a few bags at purchase so you are good to go.

2) Avoid robotic vacuum cleaners. They do look like a cool gadget, but they just don't clean that well. And that is really what it is all about.

3) Go for a quiet vacuum cleaner. It is really a hazzle to have a loud noisy thing, that will not allow you to watch TV, listen to music, or talk while somebody is vacuuming.

4) Go for a good quality brand and product. Buying something too cheap, from Korea or China, will just get you angry and you will regret it later.

5) Look for a decent filtration. It is called HEPA filter. It should have at at least a HEPA 12 filter - to ensure that you really doesnt just blow dust around with your vacuum cleaner.

With those things in mind, after looking through reviews (see here, e.g.,) I finally decided for the Electrolux Ultra Silencer. It is the world's most quiet vacuum, and has received great reviews.

You can see a video of the vacuum cleaner beeing used, in Singapore, below.

This would be one of the recommended vacuum cleaners, after looking at the reviews.

Washing machine with dryer

Having a washing machine with a dryer is a very smart thing. It allows you to in the same space have both the washing and the drying. It saves you a lot of space!

Having a dryer in addition to your washing machine is a good thing. It allows you to quickly dry your clothes, without having them outside, risking a rainfall, or neighbours wetting them. You do not want to have your precious clothes getting soiled like that.

So I strongly recommend you getting a washing machine with a dryer. One model of Washer Dryer that I recommend is this good one from Electrolux.
