The search for the coolest washing machine...

We've had problems with our Zanussi washing machine for quite a while now, as it stops at random points in the cycle, meaning we have to drain everything and start again. So when it stops 3 times out of 4 it's immensely frustrating.
Luckily the shop has taken it back to fix and left us with a loaner, but it's prompted me to take a look at what's available if you want something that not only cleans clothes, but also looks cool.
It's a bit tricky, as the basics of clothes washing and design don't seem to have changed much, but then I found this:

 It's the OVO washing machine concept designed by Murat Ozveri, and yes, when it's not in use, you get a giant clock to look at. And when it starts washing, the screen also displays a load of information about the washing.
  Not just that, but it looks cool and the different colours you could choose would work well for most kitchens. 
  The only problem is that it was designed and built a while ago, but I can't seem to see it in any shops yet. Come on white goods people - we want more than just square boxes in our kitchens...

  Anyone seen any washing machines that are cool, and also available to buy? Help me out by linking them up in the comments!


  1. We have one of these:
    Quite good but limited options for different washes. Think it looks quite nice though.

  2. That's pretty cool - I could be tempted by that. Still a little boxy, but definitely a step in the right direction!
