Philips Domestic Appliances are partnering up with EcoMatcher

A great start of the day starts with a better breakfast for you and for our planet.
Philips Domestic Appliances are partnering up with EcoMatcher and Fostering Education & Environment for Development, Inc. (FEED) to celebrate the launch of the Eco Conscious Edition breakfast set in Australia and South Korea.

For every kettle, toaster and coffee maker from the collection sold in Korea and Australia, a tree is being planted in the Sierra Madre mountain range in the Philippines.

The Eco Conscious Edition breakfast set is developed with bio-based plastics made from used cooking oil and plant oil waste and fits perfectly with our ambition to do business responsibly and with sustainability in mind. With every purchase, consumers in South Korea and Australia can name their own tree, see where it was planted, track its carbon sequestration, and listen to the sounds of the tree’s location on the EcoMatcher app.

So far Philips have planted almost 3,000 trees with more to come!

Fifth time in a row: Miele washing machines are again test winners

Miele WCI 870 WPS achieves the best rating for environmental properties

Excellent grades also in endurance testing and handling

For the fifth time in a row, Miele washing machines are at the top of the podium in the Stiftung Warentest (StiWa). In the current issue of the magazine “test” (issue 10/2022), the WCI 870 WPS and the WWE 360 WPS GreenPerformance received the overall grade GOOD (1.6) and impress over a period of ten years with low operating costs. In total, StiWa evaluated 14 front loaders with loads between 8 kg and 9 kg.

As in the last washing machine and dryer tests by Stiftung Warentest, a Miele appliance, here the WCI 870 WPS, shines with the best environmental properties – with the sole top mark of good (1.9). Among the equally placed test winners, both Miele washing machines even have the lowest operating costs. Current average electricity and water prices serve as the basis for calculation, and future annual price increases have already been taken into account. For this, the editors give the “environmental tip”, which the WCI 870 WPS in particular deserves with the lowest power and water consumption. Significantly, among the devices rated good (1.6), only the two Miele washing machines were awarded energy efficiency class A, while the other test subjects did not get beyond a C.The fact that both Miele appliances received the top mark of 1.0 in the endurance test category is not least a result of the intensive stress tests carried out by the Gütersloh-based household appliance group, which are well above the industry average: Miele tests its washing machines for a service life of up to 20 years (at 5 washes per week) and thus goes far beyond the StiWa specifications. Nine years with 3.5 washes per week are the benchmark here. The Miele appliances also received praise in the test for their precise display of the remaining time and for their easy cleaning and maintenance. In all other categories, too, Miele washing machines always achieved a very good or good rating.

The test results for the Miele WCI 870 WPS apply analogously to the WWI 860 WPS and WEI 875 WPS devices of the same construction.

Equipped with a range of convenient features

In addition to the evaluated criteria, both devices scored well in the test with the innovative PowerWash washing process, with which even very small quantities are cleaned in an energy-efficient manner (“washing effect A”). In connection with the QuickPowerWash program, this even works in less than an hour. With CapDosing, special detergents, fabric softeners or additives can be easily dosed in practical portion capsules. The AddLoad function makes it possible to add or remove forgotten items of laundry until just before the end of the program. Of course, both appliances also have the legendary Miele honeycomb drum, which, thanks to its honeycomb structure, ensures maximum laundry protection.

The WCI 870 WPS device also has the TwinDos automatic liquid detergent dosing system, which is integrated in the device. With TwinDos, detergents can be saved by up to 30 percent*, independently confirmed by the renowned Öko-Institut e. V. in Freiburg. TwinDos automatically doses at the right time and in the right proportions: overdosing or underdosing, as well as fiddling with detergent, are a thing of the past – for maximum convenience and washing at the push of a button.

Freezimer home Ice maker

Freezimer, a longtime specialist in kitchen innovations and smart appliances, has developed its latest countertop nugget ice maker machine for home use — the DIM-30A model. Arriving on the heels of its sister ice maker, Dreamiracle, the Freezimer DIM-30A uses the same icemaking technology as Dreamiracle through a brand that places more emphasis on the manufacturing and service of home appliances.

As a brand, Freezimer recognized how the noise factor continues to be a common criticism across a spectrum of home-use and industrial ice makers. Because ice makers are a common feature of parties and special events, any additional or disruptive noise tends to interfere with the occasion. To counter this complaint, Freezimer’s countertop models are specifically engineered to emit a lower, more subdued level of noise. Freezimer is on a mission to end the noise annoyance once and for all and has reduced its ice maker sound to a range of just 45 tp 48 decibels.The Freezimer DIM-30A is built with an intuitive ice maker control panel that allows users to make their ice quickly and efficiently. The compact Freezimer appliance creates nine ice cubes in only six minutes — a total of 33 pounds of ice per day under continual operation. After placing water inside the ice maker, the user will simply press the “on” button and choose between large or small ice cubes, depending on their preferences or requirements. For maximal efficiency, the icemaker can be operated via wifi connectivity and a phone-operated remote control app.With its state-of-the-art infrared sensor technology, the ice machine monitors its own contents and will notify the user when water needs to be replaced, or the ice basket is completely full. The Freezimer DIM-30A also comes with a convenient self-cleaning function that eliminates a significant degree of maintenance effort. Users can easily add water, press the “on” button for five seconds, activate an easy auto-clean function to cleanse the interior of the appliance, and then open a rubber stopper to drain the used water through a bottom-side opening.

Vent&Axia shortlisted for awards

Leading ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia is delighted to announce it has been shortlisted twice in the prestigious HVR Awards 2022. The Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon Multivent MEV range and the Lo-Carbon NBR dMEV C have both been named as finalists in the Domestic Ventilation Product of Year Award category. This news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that the same two products have also been shortlisted in the H&V Awards.

This consolidates Vent-Axia’s market-leading position, as the company takes another step towards offering more sustainable choices for customers, with its Lo-Carbon Multivent MEV range now made from recycled plastic, an industry first, and the Lo-Carbon NBR dMEV C achieving its market-leading efficiency through its innovative patent pending air pathway design. impeller mean the Lo-Carbon dMEV C can meet the requirements of many domestic installations without the need to use a traditional centrifugal fan. Featuring a single high efficiency EC/DC motor the fan achieves highest in class efficiency thanks to its axial fan, which consumes a fraction of the energy of the equivalent centrifugal fan – drastically reducing Dwelling Emission Rates (DER).

The Lo-Carbon NBR dMEV C is IPX5 rated, allowing installation in Zone 1, 2 and 3 and offers 100mm and 125mm models, with variable speed setting for easy installation and commissioning. The fan’s brand-new control platform provides fully adjustable airflow, meaning wholehouse rates can be achieved easily using fewer fans, delivering increased ventilation rates at the lowest sound levels with the fewest fans. The controls for the dMEV C unit provide fully adjustable, continuous trickle speeds with a boost speed that’s activated via an integral humidistat or via LS Input.
