This is one of those things. You’ll either get it or you won’t.

I am absurdly excited about this.

Here’s the old one. When I got it, eight, ten years ago, it was pretty much the best on the market; but it’s astonishing how much laundry two little girls can make in that time.

Now, I do the laundry. So I care about this shit. And that thing did an ok job in an un-sexy way. It’s pretty much this, where the new one is more, you know, this.

But the time has come to retire the ‘ol neptune, and move on. So here’s the new one.

It’s not a washer. It’s a Robot Over-lord And this control-panel, man, his looks like it could fly th’ fuckin’ enterprise.

Christ. Someone get me a life.

Edit: The lovely and nipple-tingling Carol Elaine pointed me to this video, which is even more pornaliscious.

  1. I get it.

    If I were a fetish model, I’d ask to come over and do photo shoots in your laundry room. Maybe, I dunno, folding laundry and stuff? I have a robust “shiny red things” fetish–knowing that there are *home appliances* out there that look like this… well, things aren’t going to be easy.

  2. Pretty, pretty. Looks like hard candy, mmm. Makes you want to lick it. Now you need to redesign the whole garage to match it. And then next, you’ll need to buy the kitchen setup from Top Chef. And then redesign the kitchen…and then…

  3. In the apartments I rented in Europe, they had all-in-one front-loading washer/dryers. They’re super-compact and cheap over there, but ridiculously expensive here. I covet one of those. What I really want, though, is a Dyson.

  4. Syl, it is like candy. Robot Overlord candy. But I already have a kitchen that’s pretty Top Chef. Only more shiny black granite and less stainless steel.

    Hiromi, yeah, those all-in-ones sort of bother me for some reason, though the main issue is that I need a big-ass washer/dryer due to pure laundry volume. Like I said, you have NO IDEA how much laundry two little girls can produce.

  5. *sigh*

    Some day, when I have a home of my own and am tasked with such purchases as range ovens and washer/dryer combos, everything is going to be red. I’m not sure I should be afraid of my red home, or anticipatory.

    I think my “reddening” would start in the kitchen though… I already have a red apron to start with!

  6. Oh wow! I LOVE my new washer and dryer, but they didn’t come in red!!!! I still love mine, but I’m SOOO jealous that yours are red! But, I DO hope you enjoy them!

  7. yeah, I have seen those machines in Lowe’s and Home Depot. Cool, I haven’t seen the red one though. High tech washer and dryer..
    Did you see the refrigerator with the built in flat screen TV?
    Appliances now days!
