WASHERS STEAM Whirlpool Duet Steam Washer - $1,199.00 »
One of the hottest trends in laundry appliances is steam washing. Just about every manufacturer is offering one, with more entrants likely to come on the market this year as the category grows.
What are its benefits? Chief among them are time savings from not having to pre-treat spots and potentially better stain removal. Drawbacks? Remember when a washing machine used to cost a few hundred dollars? These babies will set you back upwards of $1,000. Hopefully, more competition will result in better pricing. It usually does, but the days of $200 washers are probably as over as the days of a $2 per gallon gasoline.
