I would love this machine, but I think I would like the oven that doubles as a fridge. I have no idea what brand it is, but it would be great if I could put something in the fridgoven in the morning when I go to work, and not worry about the food sitting out when it only needs to cook for an hour. What a time saver.
Also on the new washer/dryer I noticed you said it had a countdown to completion timer, that would be WONDERFUL!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Samsung Home Appliances

My heart just about jumped out of my chest when BlogHer asked me to chose which brand new SAMSUNG appliance I would like to review (and OWN)! Are you serious?!?!? I made Joe re-read the email over and over to make sure I was translating it correctly. YEP!

And YES--SAMSUNG! They dominate at everything else electric, so why not appliances?

We, the Steece family of 6, are now the proud owners of the Samsung, top-o-the-line, extra large capacity, front loading washer (model: #WF448AAP)
and dryer (model: #DV448AEP)--complete with pedestals!!!

Out with the old...(I'm gonna miss you, 'ole buddy 'ole pal...we've been through LOADS of baby spit up together)




...and in with the brand, spankin' new!
LOVE Mr. Delivery Man's face---"YES! They are quadruplets!" (notice the quad-crowd watching from above?)


Well...whadya think, guys? (The kids were in awe of the giant machines!)


Ben: "OOOOOOOOoooooo!!!"


But enough gawkin'...Mama has work to do! You see, I saved up on laundry so that I could run several different loads in the new W&D! (Yah right...who am I kiddin'...this is Mom & Dad's laundry on a GOOD week!)


Time to sit down and read through those user manuals (Yes! I am THAT particular and thoroughly read through each and every instruction booklet before setting up new gadgets, don't you?) The booklets were very easy and concise.


Samsung Washer Model WF448AAP (isn't she beautiful?!?!)


Click on the image below to view a detailed description of features.


Here are a few of my favorites:

1. EXTRA LARGE CAPACITY!- it can wash a king sized comforter or up to 28 bath towels in a single load! Which is awesome in a house full of 6--the laundry adds up VERRRY quickly! By washing fewer loads--I save time, money, water, and energy! (Ethan checking things out)


2. VRT (Vibration Reduction Technology)- performs smoothly at top spin speeds while minimizing noise and vibration. (Fantastic for sleeping kiddos!)


video

3. Stylish Design- heck ya! Funny how the most exquisite part of our house has now become our laundry room!


4. Diamond Drum- Tiny little holes that are 36% smaller than conventional drums which prevent fabrics from getting caught or damaged


5. LCD Display & Center Jog Dial- it is SO easy to use and I love how the screen lights up in the dark as well! Look at all of those different cycles! I also love the countdown to completion.



The child lock button will also come in handy with 4 curious kids sneaking in and out of rooms they shouldn't be in! Just press the "Soil Level" & "Signal" buttons simultaneously.


6. Silver Care Sanitation Cycle- 16 million trillion silver (widely known for its antimicrobial properties) ions are released during this particular cycle which does NOT use HOT water---This, in turn, uses 92% LESS energy while killing more than 99.9% of bacteria.



Things to take into consideration:

- Expensive: From what I have researched, this is the "top of the top of the line" when it comes to washing machines and averages around $1400. This particular washer is among the most highly rated front-loading washers in professional appliance testing (Consumer Reports & Good Housekeeping) and I believe it! It is amazing!

- Silver plates must be replaced after 1,000 Silvercare Cycles have been run. If you push the signal button and the silver care button simultaneously, the total number of silver cycles run will be displayed...so it is easy to keep track.


Samsung Dryer Model DV448AEP



Click on the image below to view a detailed description of features.


Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Fuzzy Logic Algorithm- What's this you ask? Sensors measure the degree of dampness and automatically set the drying time! Talk about super energy efficient! I love that it automatically shuts off when it detects that the clothes are perfectly dry to the particular level you choose (5 different drying levels: very dry to damp dry) and not a second longer---no more crisp clothes that have been blown to bits!


2. Mixed Load Bell- When laundry contains various types of cloth which vary in weight and drying time, a bell will alarm when the average dry level is 80% dried---perfect for taking out those polos that Joe doesn't want dried all the way and wrinkled! (I LOOOOVE this feature!)


3. Extra Large Capacity- Again, I am amazed at the amount of laundry I can fit into the washer & dryer! They are HUGE!


4. Refresh or Steam cycle- Say you want to wear something that has been hanging in your closet, smushed and wrinkled---simply throw it in the dryer under "refresh cycle" and it will spray a small amount of water while tumbling with heat. It reduces bad odor and wrinkles! Awesome.


5. Wrinkle Care- It is a button you can push with any cycle-- a small amount of water is sprayed into the drum to release wrinkles from items that have been left in the dryer too long and will continue for up to 90 minutes. I was completely amazed as I pulled load after load out of the dryer and the clothes were hardly wrinkled at all!


6. Rack Dry- Items such as stuffed toys, sweaters, foam rubber pillows, shoes, etc. can be dried on a drying rack so they won't be tossed around. Very COOL!


Things to take into consideration:

- Expensive: Average price is around $1300. (But you definitely get what you pay for and you end up using less energy so it all evens out, right?!)

A Samsung washer would make my life much easier. We have 3 adults sharing one washer and if we could throw all our clothes in together at once, we would save a lot of water & electricity.

Daphne said...

I'd love a dishwasher. Ours pretty much never worked and our extended family get-togethers generate a ton of dishes that have to be hand-washed!

Jessica said...

Definately a fridge or washer and dryer. But I'd settle for a dishwasher too.
Thanks!

Ranee @ Arabian Knits said...

We so need a new dryer. We'd love to have the washer and dryer, but if you can only choose one, dryer would be it. It would save time and energy, and ours is already dying.

Jill said...

oh my goodness! the washer and dryer look amazing - i totally want them! i love that they hold a whole heck of a lot. so tired of doing a million loads of laundry because my washer is dinky.

Beth said...

I need an upadated washer and dryer. Too many towels and my washer is jumping all over the place. The dryer usually has to go two spin cycles to get everything dry. Both are small, with a family of four all I do is wash and dry clothes plus the dryer clothes can come out with wholes and rips sometimes not sure if that is the washer or dryer and the wrinkles !! I use a dry cleaner because I hate to iron. The extra money I spend! Thanks for asking. Beth

Jude said...

I'm so glad for you -- you certainly deserve this washer and dryer!

I'd love to get a new stove; mine is taking forever to heat up. It came from a dent center twenty years ago, and it's given good service, but it's ty-yme!

Shelley LaValley said...

A freezer, a freezer oh yes I'd love a freezer! Getting ready to start online grad school at ACU and being able to stock up ahead of time would be awesome to keep my three kiddos and hubby supplied with plenty of treats! BTW, I LOVE your blog and have enjoyed reading it the past two years.

Kerry said...

WOW - those are beautiful. I need a new fridge but my washer sounds like a space shuttle taking off every time it goes in to the spin cycle - so I know any day now it's a goner. Kerry the_mccaffreys@hotmail.com

Erin said...

I would have to pick....ALL of them.. I recently moved into a forcloser townhouse and all of the appliances are very out of date and not energy efficent. I'm sure we could save a lot of money if we were to upgrade just about everything! Eventually we will but it will take some time and money.

Meredith said...

I’m torn between the fridge and the dishwasher. Both of mine are in dire need of replacement. But I’ll probably have to go with the fridge. A kid alarm in it for when they’ve been browsing too long! Jeez, that’s awesome.

smithacres6 said...

Having 4 kids (16 to 7) and a husband, I too know how much laundry a family of six can make. Trying to keep up is nearly a full time job by itself! This giftcard would truly be a blessing from God for my one-income family.

Swedish said...

Wow! I'm in awe of the washer/dryer combo!

I could easily use (NEED) a Range Electric from Samsung!!! We moved into a house 2 years ago where everything is 20-30 years old, the furnace, hot water heater, stove, and refrigerator plus us 20 year old roof is leaking! All of our money is going into the roof at this point. But I love baking/cooking, and our gas oven cooks things unevenly...depending on the day it will under cook things or when I want to bake of course it will burn my cakes, brownies, and breads.

Drew's Mom said...

I think a washer and dryer. Need wash time and dry time to be the same and need to do larger loads. Even with two kids, laundry is crazy!

jgolowin (at) yahoo (dot) com

Tracy Williams said...

I would love to have the washer!!! It would make my life so much easier since my washer is on its last leg. Only one cycle still works and it barely makes it through one load without my help. Plus, how beautiful are the stainless steel washers!!!

Charity Donovan said...

Holy SWEET giveaway Suz!!! Congrats on the W/D...I could REALLY use a FABULOUS set myself!!!!

The washer/dryer would be a dream come true. My old relics just don't do the trick.

Michelle said...

A dishwasher! We don't have one right now and boy, would that be nice!!

Amanda T said...

We need a new dishwasher!

Emily said...

I would love a new dishwasher- ours is barely functional!

theniftynewlywed said...

What a generous giveaway!

We totally need the Dishwasher (DMR78AHS). Ours is really old, doesn't wash efficiently and really rings up the energy bill for us. We usually just hand wash, because it's cheaper. If we had a new dishwasher, though, we'd definitely use it more!

Kelli said...

A new washer/dryer would be great! Ours is falling apart at the moment.

EG said...

Those are awfully pretty (love the pic of your kids watching the delivery!), but I'd love the new fridge! We're doing a kitchen remodel and the fridge is the first appliance I'd like to replace (in phase 2)!

Jenni Williams said...

Fantastic review! An amazing fridge would make a huge difference in my daily life...

Sharon said...

Love all the pictures. It sure does make life easier when you can do a big load of laundry! I would have to say a dishwasher would make my life easier, we currently don't have one!

Most Definetly the Washer and Dryer!! After reading your post about the new additions I want to go out right now and purchase those magnificent creatures!! If only I'd know that my hubby would not have a heart attack!! lol

I love your washer and dryer...but I would also like a new fridge!

Sarah said...

I could really use the dishwasher!! Dishwasher (DMR78AHS)
Ours is so loud, and unless we wash our dishes first I can't really say that they would come out clean. This diswasher(DMR78AHS)looks like it would be great with the flexible loading option for washing all types of dishes, like parts from my crockpot!!! Thanks for this giveaway, it is truly awesome!!

lahhough said...

The washer and dryer look amazing. It would be hard to choose between the two.

mrsrstjr said...

I would have to say that the washer and dryer would be best for me! We have some old ones and don't get me wrong - they work... but not with all those spiffy option!

Amanda
amandathiel@ymail.com

krista said...

Wow....what a fun review! Looks like an amazing washer and dryer...although I think right now I would go for the dishwasher!

Michaela said...

I just want pedestals for my washer and dryer. I too have front loading machines, but we just couldn't justify splurging even more for the pedestals. I would LOVE to not have to bend down so far to load and unload. At almost 6 feet tall, that's a long way down for me.

Tiffany Norris said...

Oh, I think the washer/dryer would be awesome! I'm already in love!
And I really like the fun pictures in with the review. Cute!

~Shelly~ said...

DEF a new washer and dryer!!!!

Sara Bading said...

I love the pictures!
I would have to say the washer would help me out a TON. We still have the same cheap(est) model washer and dryer tham my parents bought us when my sister and I lived together in college. Married with a child later, we're still using the washer. It's not the biggest so I can't wash our blankets or more than 5 pairs of jeans. Needless to say I do a bunch of loads, and have to take my comforter to my Mom's house (4 hours away).
The washer would help us in more ways than you can imagine.

Carrie said...

I would say washer & dryer... which I own! This exact brand, as a matter of fact. I've had them for a year and still haven't read the manuals all the way though but have been WANTING to do so. I can't seem to find them :/ You did point out some features that I wasn't aware of though!

The one issue I run into with them is the power and play/pause buttons stick... and if they stick it'll stop running - sometimes without me noticing, which is annoying. So, be sure to double check that they aren't stuck before you walk away! (Though I believe that may be listed in the manual's troubleshooting section - I did glance through it once upon a time! - so you probably already know that!)

I cracked up at the picture of you half hanging out of the dryer. Very nice.

Erika said...

great description. I would most def. choose the washer/ dryer. The ones we have now are older than dirt :)

Erin Smith said...

I would have to say a dryer...you know, one of those that folds clothes by itself! ;)

A fridge might be nice too. You know, one of those that lets ya know that you are out of sour cream and cheese BEFORE you begin to cook your chili!!! ;)

kristi said...

I would love a new dishwasher, ours doesn't get the job done and handwashing all of these baby bottles is getting old! That washer and dryer looks fantastic though!!

Mrs.Joe said...

I must have these!! I love them!!

Great Post! I know the Washer and Dryer. My husband gets a wee bit upset with me because I forget that I have clothes in the dryer and especially his work clothes.

I am SOOOO jealous! But you need these more than I do, so good for you! ;) I'm still jealous, though. The dryer is at the top of my list, but the washer is a close second. My dryer is practically defunct, and currently out of commission, so thanks for the chance to win!

I could desperately use a new stove. Mine is broken and hasn't worked in over a year. How I miss baking.

Michele said...

No doubt about it the washer and dryer. All the cool features would make my world so much easier!

Kelly said...

Washer and dryer for sure!!!

koopermom said...

I could use them all! But I really need the dishwasher the most! Mine is from the stone age and I have to manually turn the dial between cycles. It's annoying - esp. when I forget it's filling and end up with water all over the floor!!

The W/D for sure. I love the anti-wrinkle feature...I wonder how it would work for our expensive but fragile soccer jerseys?

Melissa said...

Toss up between fridge and dishwasher. Even though our fridge is only two years old, it isn't very big. It was bought pre-baby and I wasn't thinking of how much boys can eat! The dishwasher would be nice because our existing one is starting to make an unpleasant noise. Thanks!

I would go for a new oven - mmm... convection option... roasting...

Now I feel like I really NEED this exact washer and dryer. OK, well actually I do NEED it since I don't have one currently and that is awful. Who likes going to the laundry mat in Dallas?! Not me. A new W/D would be stellar!

Dani' said...

We really need a new dishwasher. I am tired of ours leaving "grit" on everything. I have to wash a load a few times just to get it clean!

Mom to One said...

I'm thinking the dishwasher... Our home was built in the 80's and I think all the appliance are quite noisy... Something about a quiet dishwasher sounds appealing and perhaps I could even do dishes in the middle of the night without fear of waking the family! :o)

Traci S.

mmmm, brains said...

Either the dishwasher or range would improve the quality of my life immensely. Our dishwasher stinks, literally, and our range is from the '70's. ;)

Heather said...

I guess the way I was drooling over your fancy washer and dryer would be the way a man drools over a Porshe or another fancy car.

I really would love a new washer and dryer or better yet a new dishwasher. Our dishwasher is probably 20 years old. We need a new one!

pxilated said...

I'd love a new refrigerator!

The Roberts' Report said...

I'm all for the washer (wf448aap). I can't believe how beautiful it is. Ours is a hand-me-down, and this one seriously puts it to shame!

loggins4 said...

would love a "quite" new dishwasher!

Jen said...

I would 100% without a doubt choose a new washer and dryer! Mine are ancient and I'm obsessive about our laundry. A front loader would be my dreams come true as far as cleaning/wifely duties go;-)

Andra said...

What a great review. Love all the detail. I would definitely benefit the most from a new dryer. Ours is just too slow...I can run two wash cycles in the time it takes to dry one load - not very efficient.

Hope said...

I SO need a new washer & dryer. My washer is actually my sister's and a friend who own's an appliance store gave me an old dryer that someone didn't want. I have been wanting to replace them, but since they work, it's hard to let them go.

Count me in for the fridge!!! I have a side by side and HATE it!! I love the Samsung's space and wow- a front ice dispenser feature!

BTW- the silver bars in the washer are AMAZING! They work- wonders~

Little Dude's Mama said...

Washer & dryer, no hesitation.
Because on Saturday mornings, when the laundry room is bustin' at the seams, all I want to do is grab my lil' chica and head for the coffee shop for mochas, books, and puzzles. Laundry is no fun. But the Samsung models just may help ...

Jenna said...

My husband and I could REALLY use a new dishwasher... ours is cheap, old, rarely gets dishes clean even with pre-washing, and with a baby on the way we could really use something that actually gets hot enough to sterilize dishes (ours doesn't)!

Lori S. said...

We'd love to replace our range. Our oven temp is way off all the time, it takes forever to preheat, and our gas burners don't light the way they should - have to use a match to light them. Also, it would be nice to have a stove where the controls aren't on the FRONT of the unit, so my 2 year old can't reach them!

JB said...

Definately the washer. All I do is laundry here...

Heather said...

I'd go for a fridge. When we move, we'll have to buy one!

Susan said...

I am pretty sure I would have to choose a new washer/dryer! We have 6 people at home too and I just can't ever catch up!! Awesome review!!

Nancy L said...

I would like both a new washer and dryer as mine are old but they both work good yet so I can't quite convince my hubby yet to get something different.

Emily said...

I would LOVE a gas range!

I would love a dishwasher. We don't have one, and it would make washing dishes so much easier and faster!

A new refridgerator that holds a LOT more containers *for leftovers* and has a freezer where the racks aren't broken would probably be the best new appliance for us!! I love to cook, but without room to store leftovers, sometimes it isn't worth the trouble.
Thanks for the 411 on the new washer and dryer.. :)

Joanie said...

Our fridge is a nightmare! It leaks. It freezes when it's not supposed to and melts when it should freeze. The crisper drawer is so narrow (top to bottom) that you can't even get a regular head of lettuce in there. What were those geeky designers thinking? I would love love a new refrigerator to replace our 27 year old clunker.

Angela said...

Why not enter? Of course I would LOVE that washer and dryer!

kc138 said...

Wow. I could use the washer, dryer, and fridge! But my number one choice would be the dishwasher (DMR78AHS). Between working full time, doing research for my Masters, TAing, seeing my husband, and taking care of the house, washing dishes is usually the last chore I do.

JavaNut said...

I would love a new dishwaser... my new house has one that is better for storing dishes (and not well at that!) than washing them... I've got a new W/D, but have to say that your review has me dreaming of the Samsung!

Jocelyn said...

Definitely the washer/dryer! Our dryer repair man told us we are living on "bought time" with our 14 year old dryer. With a little one on the way (and hopes of using cloth diapers) we really need one that is reliable!

The Elletts said...

A samsung range would make my life sweet! The one in our house is OLD as the hills and I would be in heaven with a Samsung Range!

Jones said...

i sooooo need the dryer. !!!!

Wendy Howe said...

The dryer is my pick. Tay can't come too large or efficient.

Michelle said...

What a beautiful looking new washer/dryer,and beautiful family also!!! Love reading your blog.

I would def choose a washer/dryer also because I am a lazy lazy laundry person and am always forgetting they are in there. Our set has helped us with our almost two year old and six month old and all of their laundry, but it just takes SO long and is loud, goes off balance all the time...the list goes on.

Thank you for the opportunity!

I would love a new refrigerator. With 2 boys, 15 and 17, there is never enough room!

mygalsal said...

I really need a new washer and dryer. My husband works with dairy cows (EWW!) which makes really stinky laundry, way worse than twins with reflux.

I saw the billboard on I30 a couple of weeks ago. So cute.

Lindsey said...

The washer and Dryer would be a dream come true. We are a family of five. 3 kids at three differnt schools and a man who coaches at a fourth leaves us with tons of stinky sports laundry and lots of germs to disinfect! ThankS!

Crystal said...

No questions asked, I'd go for the W/D. I generally have 2 loads of white clothes, 3 loads of towels, a load a piece for each kid (three) & myself, and then a load of delicates. I feel like I spend most weekends stuck in the laundry room. Absolutely love your new W/D.

Because I live in an In-Laws cottage and don't have one! I make do with counter appliances.... they work but boy oh boy would this be wonderful!

willis71 said...

A new washer and dryer would be great. The ones that I have now of hand-me-downs from my sister who just got new Samsungs!! I am very thankful for her hand-me-downs because the ones that I had before were wore out!

Kristine in WA said...

We are in the market for all new major appliances. BUT after your review now I think we need a new washer and dryer FIRST.

Amber said...

This has got to be the coolest job. I would love to have the W/D. I have a king comforter that I have to haul to a laundry mat or dry cleaners everytime it needs cleaned. I even steam cleaned it with my carpet/upholstery (sp) cleaner once to keep from taking it somewhere. Enjoy!

Donna said...

all of the above...We left a house to go to law school, and miss not having a dish washer. I don't know if one would fit in our teeny-tiny apartment with the two kids, but we would work it out!

Jessica said...

the washer and dryer would definitely make my life easier. we've just got a family of 4 but the laundry sure piles up. plus, they're so pretty!

Ami said...

Although my kiddos and I would have HOURS of fun trying out all the nifty gadgets on the Samsung washer/dryer set, we are in dire need of a new refrigerator. My house did not come with a refrigerator, forcing me to buy one, and now we seem to be stuck with this tiny refrigerator that I can only store about 3 days worth of groceries in, forcing me to make many, many trips to the store throughout the week. I wouldn't know what to do with a fridge I could actually stand up-right in front of and look through my food, although my daughter, Brylie, who is 2, things it's super cool that there is something that is just her size in our house! =)

any one of those appliances would be awesome! but i would have to say the washer/dryer would make my life much easier--no more trudging to the laundry mat with a granny cart loaded to the brim with dirty clothes!

I would be in heaven with a new washer. It would make my day. For now, I would settle for a gift card!

Suzie,
The washer/dryer would be the best thing for us. I might come over to try yours out! Love you,
Ashley Hoag

Ryan, Sarah & Kids! said...

How awesome!

Congrats on your new beauties!

I would LOVE a new fridge! We have three little ones and a small fridge. A new frige would cut down on the trips to the grocery and allow us to buy more in bulk.

Thanks!

Soooz, LOVE LOVE LOVE all the pictures and this review! It's perfect. I'm so glad you got a new washer and dryer.. you deserve it mama. Having seen them in person.. WOW.. I'm jealous.. they are BEAUTIFUL!!!

I can say for sure, a new washer and dryer would make our lives easier too.

Enter me to win baby!

I love you!

Sarah said...

I would love the fridge - Samsung RFG297AARS would be amazing! Our smaller side by side fridge doesn't even have a water dispenser, which means the lower shelf is filled with our refillable water bottles for my family. It looks so sharp in the stainless steel too.

Until it's our turn to dance said...

I actually have the model before that one...and I'm with you, it makes washing clothes SO MUCH FUN! I also love that the alarm "sings" to you rather than screams or annoys. Which Samsung product would I pick....easy, dishwasher! Our current one is so tiny and isn't very user friendly!

Anonymous said...

Gee, this W/D is out of price range for so many folks. Several of my friends have had these front load washers that are very economical with water and no washer has lasted more than five years.

I wish we could get appliances that last in this country...

I'd love to have a samsung front load washer and dryer. The energy and water savings would be great. And, I'd love to have a cute countertop over my set like i've seen in so many designer laundry rooms. :)

Lizzard said...

I would love the Range Electric (FTQ387LWGX) to replace my old gas stove top possibly made in the 50s!

Erin said...

Your kids are adorable. Love your blog. I sure could use a new refriderator or a freezer. I love to buy in bulk but it's hard when since I have such a small fridge.

Lindsey said...

I could use a new dishwasher...our current one does not clean properly.

Nancy said...

It is a toss up between the microwave and the dishwasher. Both are over twenty years old and need replacing:)

Steph Bucher said...

I think I could use the fridge. Mines just not big enough for all the cooking I do!!!

LStewart said...

I would say the range and refrigerator. My range doesn't hold heat as it should and I'm forced to extend cooking time or increase cooking temps to make sure a dish is fully cooked. My refrigerator has a major issue with condensation. It's a frost free fridge and rather than the water draining as it is supposed to it pools in the bottom of the fridge and I'm constantly having to removed the drawers and shelves to dry it out.

Kate said...

I really need the dishwasher, but you have made me yearn for the washer and dryer too! But, as my laundry machines still function well enough, I will have to stick with the dishwasher!

Sarah P said...

Washer and Dryer - definitely! I LOVE the new set you received! Beautiful and so time-efficient. The ones I have now work and are paid for, two of my favorite qualities. But they're also hand-me-downs or refurbs from the late 80s/early 90s. They inevitably bounce around the room when the baby is sleeping and I can only imagine what it would be like to wash more than 2 pairs of pants at one time without off-setting its balance! Congrats, Suz on your new washer/dryer set! I'm so happy for you!

Jennifer said...

Dishwasher! Mine is dying, and I hate doing dishes by hands. But that is a very cool washer and dryer set!

Amanda said...

I wish I had the washer and dryer, too! Being in an NYC apartment, I am stuck lugging laundry down to the basement, ugh!

Anonymous said...

Wow - those are HUGE! I'd go with a washer. We just tried to wash our queen-sized comforter last weekend, and ended up with water all over the garage and a comforter still steeped in detergent. It dried fine, but now it reeks of detergent. Sigh. Guess we'll be taking it to the dry cleaners.

I would love a range/oven combination. I have a wall oven and could use another oven.

Ashley S. said...

I would also say the Washer and Dryer! We also have a family of 6 and could use a bigger load capacity!

Beth said...

I seem to want everything I read a review of. The convection oven seems to be winning.

Shannon said...

Oh I would love a new washer/dryer. Mine is from the 80s...for real! Pick me, pick me. =)

Holy smokes! That is so awesome that they gave you the Washer and Dryer! Congratulations!

I think a new washer/dryer would definitely make my life easier. My husband and I are using a hand-me-down from my parents, and I'm not sure how many loads it has left!

Your pictures are so much fun! I'm torn between the fridge and the dishwasher, both would make life so much easier. Our current dishwasher is a sponge, and me our my husband!

I have the older version of your new dryer, and it is going strong for our family of six (twins plus 2). I would most like to have a washing machine to match!

I want that gift card! haha

Corrinne said...

I would have to say that the Washer/ Dryer. I have to take my queen comforters to the laundrymat to wash. I so hate going to the laudrymat. I do a load of laundry everynight for my family of 3(Husband,3 yrs old, and myself). Anything that would save time and money would be great. I would love to have a new washer/Dryer. Steece's, I am so jealous. Congrats!

Thanks

Katie Walden said...

Since I'm a single gal, I don't have much need for a large W/D or fridge. I think the Samsung microwave would be my choice. I nuke a lot of food/leftovers.

n8urebabe said...

I'd love a new dryer.

Jill B said...

Wow - good, thorough review! What I'D love is the range, though. Not having to babysit things that are baking, gauging and guessing if the oven is running too hot or cool? Splendid!

Amanda said...

Every review I read makes me change my mind!

I'm still going to have to say the refrigerator. Ours is tiny.

T.S. said...

Ug, I would LOVE a samsung range! My current one cooks unevenly and doesn't have a microwave above it, so my humongous old microwave takes up tons of counter space. But alas, with hubby in grad school, it's not in the budget this year!

KK @ Running Through Life said...

Love your review Suz!! I am torn between the washer/dryer and refrigerator. The review you gave on the W/D makes me want one asap!!

Zach & Hannah Parris said...

I really want that washer (and dryer). Right now I don't have one at all and carrying my laundry around to wash it is getting really old Fast!

zooathome said...

I would pick the fridge, seeing as my 15-year-old model is way overdue for replacement. I upgraded all the other kitchen appliances when we bought the house 4 years ago, but a new fridge just wasn't in the budget.

Graceandjoelroberts said...

Definitely the Washer/dryer. ours is over 20 years old and shakes the entire house!!

I would love a dishwasher... washing all the dishes by hand gets a little time consuming. =)

Since my washer and dryer are both more than 33 years old (dear hubby owned them prior to our marriage) I'd love to have a brand new one! Could I ask for the model that also folds and puts away the clothes when they're done?

Your kids are adorable! Congrats on the new washer and dryer. I would love to have a dishwasher! I think a dishwasher. would reduce about 80% of the arguments between my husband and I too. Please Samsung, save my marriage!

Alexia said...

I need a new fridge, for sure! Mine is small and old and the water and ice machines have never worked for me LOL

the browns said...

I definitely say washer and dryer. I only have a family of 4, and I feel like with my tiny W/D I am doing laundry ALL the time. A huge would one would certainly make my life easier, and allow me to spend more time with my kids than doing laundry every other day!

Ashley

I think the washer and dryer would be great!!! We have had the same w/d since we moved into our house, which was almost 8 years ago. When we got them, we bought them used from friends of friends.

Kim said...

I love the washer/dryer. I know it would be the appliance of my choice to make life easier...fewer loads of laundry more energy efficient

Melanie said...

I would say a new OTR microwave. I just moved into a new house and the less counter space is killing me!

Jess B said...

I'd love a new microwave. Ours is tiny and ugly...I also have 4 kids so it's been put to the test over and over again! Def. seen better days!

Sara Coats said...

Ohhh, washer and dryer! Reading your great post makes me want a new set!

Debra said...

Absolutely the washer/dryer.

Our washing machine is on it's last leg. It spins *sometimes*. It agitates *sometimes*. On those rare occasions it does both, I get ridiculously excited.

Vickie said...

Hands down, the washer and dryer! I have an oldie but goodie and would absolutely L.O.V.E. a new front loader set. Keeping my finger crossed!

Mark and Corrie said...

I'd love a washer/dyer to keep up with all the laundry from our new baby girl we just adopted!

Jamie said...

Defiantly a washer and dryer!!

I have to say a fridge....mine has issues, lol!! Though a new dryer is tempting too!

Kim said...

I'm tempted to say THAT washer and dryer, because how amazing does it sound? But then I think of how old and clunky (and full) my fridge is...and I want to say a fridge...AND THEN I remember that we don't actually even OWN a dishwasher, no matter age or efficiency. So I think a new dishwasher would really help out around my place. :-)

The Halton Mom said...

I would love the washer and dryer. The most technological thing mine does is buzz when it is done. This one pretty much tells time. I want I want, but I'll settle for the GC! Thanks for the opportunity!

I would have to say definately the washer/dryer. I have swooned over a front loader forever, and maybe one day I will be so lucky!
