Smart Appliances for 2017

Have internet appliances finally arrived?

Smart Refrigerator from Samsung

In 2000 at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show), LG Electronics introduced the first internet-enabled refrigerator. The refrigerator had a color TV screen on the outside along with many hi-tech features, and a price tag around $20K. About the same time Electrolux launched the ScreenFridge. In 2006, Electrolux tried again with a more deluxe version, and in 2007 Whirlpool showed a new CentralPark Connection, a data hub and entertainment center that plugs into the refrigeration. While none of these were successful, appliance manufacturers have not given up, and the new improved versions show a lot of promise, and a much lower price. Here's one model from Samsung that appears to be gaining steam.

Shopping for appliances, floor coverings, or window treatments

The best way to shop for your dream kitchen

Internet, phone, email, or in person?

Dream Kitchen

Shopping on the internet.

If you're just getting started and are in the information gathering phase, the internet can be an excellent place to begin. There is a need to be cautious, however. First, make sure that you are looking at current data. When information is posted on the internet it stays there until removed. You may be looking at appliance reviews, model numbers and prices that were posted years ago. In addition, there are unscrupulous, fly-by-night operators on-line that will try to suck you in with unbelievable deals. Beware! Independently confirm with a reliable source what you find on the internet from unfamiliar or suspicious sources. If you deal with Arizona Wholesale Supply Company (AWS), you're working with a company that has been in business since 1944. On the Arizona Wholesale Supply website, you can get information about the best quality product lines and brands that are available, at the lowest possible prices. And you can research specific appliance models using the convenient AWS online catalog.

Working by telephone.

If you have a question about availability of a product or need to check dimensions, a phone call is often the quickest and best way to get an answer. If you live far away from a showroom, sometimes a sales associate can walk you through parts of the selection process by using a combination of phone appointments, and emails.

Exchanging emails.

E-mail is now being used extensively to send information back and forth such as: spec sheets, photos, illustrations, drawings, links to material, and anything that needs to be accessed either visually or written out. E-mail is a great tool to share information quickly.

In-person visits.

If you're outfitting your dream kitchen, at some point you'll want to see and touch the product. Appliance and flooring suppliers have upgraded their showrooms over the years, and will welcome your visit. When you get to the point where you need to sit down with a consultant for some professional help, you should call for an appointment. Make a list of all your questions, gather all your clippings, photos, dimensions, and diagrams, and try to provide your sales consultant with the information that she will need to help you choose well.

ENJOY the process. Creating a new kitchen can be an exciting and fulfilling experience – make the most of it. Call the experts at Arizona Wholesale Supply to begin the journey.
