68 Innovative Appliances

From Washers and Dryers to the Appliances of the Future

— January 25, 2010 — Art & Design
Appliances have made modern life a lot easier. Once people had to laundry by hand, and then hang it out to dry; buy food every day, or keep a cooler filled with ice; even wait for a television show to actually start before hitting the record button. Those days are long behind us, and these amazing appliances are what made the change. Check out the slideshow for everything from super fast washers and dryers to VCR toasters.
