Let us introduce you to Waring

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Waring Pro is another of those brands that has been around for quite a while now, and was first launched in America. For over 70 years the brand has been recognised worldwide, and is known for quality and classic design. Since the introduction of the ‘Miracle Mixer’ in 1937 the brand has grown and grown.

Waring was acquired by the Conair group in 1998, and if you recognise that name it is because they also own Cuisinart – another American brand we love here at Go-Electrical. Waring products are split into two categories; Waring refers to a range of premium appliances such as toasters and soup makers, while Waring Pro refers to the famous blenders, juicers and drink mixers.

Here at Go-Electrical we now have the Classic Blender, two and four slot toasters and the soup maker available for our beloved customers to purchase. All Waring products are “engineered for exceptionally long life and designed to be easy to use, as well as give excellent performance day after day” (Waring website). The blender is not only robust, but the design is iconic and it shouldn’t be hidden in a cupboard.

Between its launch in 1937 and 1954 Waring sold over a million of the Waterfall (now called Classic) blenders. With the patented clover-leaf design glass jug and extremely powerful motor the blender creates the smoothest of results every use. Possibly the best thing about this blender is the Lifetime Guarantee that it comes with (this does exclude the glass jug). Features of the Classic blender;

*Powerful commercial grade motor

*Heavy duty stainless steel base

*Traditional chrome on/off flick switch

*Crushes ice to snow on both the LO and HI speeds

*Self cleaning blade assembly (just add hot soapy water for a few seconds after use)

*1.2 litre glass jug

At Go-Electrical you can get a Waring product for your kitchen from as little as £40.00. Robust and reliable we recommend adding as many Waring products as possible!

PURE Contour 100Di

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Just in time for Christmas, PURE have launched a new docking station for iPod and iPhones. The PURE Contour 100Di is the baby sister of the PURE Contour, and it is great.

The Contour 100Di is a compact dock with DAB and FM radio which offers brilliant, powerful sound for an affordable price. It features a revolving dock, petite remote control with magnetic remote tidy, two alarms and sleep and snooze timers.

Unlike the PURE Contour, the Contour 100Di doesn’t feature Wi-Fi capabilities, but don’t let that put you off. If you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad you can download the PURE Lounge app which enables users to listen to world radio stations, podcasts, listen again content and PURE sounds. The app turns the Contour 100Di into a Wi-Fi audio system without braking the bank.

Further product information;

3.5mm auxiliary input

Mini USB port for upgrades

2 year warranty

20 digital/FM presets

A++ rated appliances from Smeg

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

We all know how Smeg Retro appliances are nice to look at, but now Smeg have given us another reason to purchase one. The FAB28 refrigerator models now have a A++ energy rating instead of A+.

Smeg have reduced the amount of energy the FAB28 models use down to 180Kw/h per year, before it was 215Kw/h per year, and this has resulted in the new categorisation. This change does not affect any other aspect of the FAB28 models, and the dimensions have not altered at all. You will be able to indentify and new FAB28 A++ model by the product code, as Smeg have added a ‘1’ to the end – for example; a FAB28QNE is replaced by a FAB28QNE1. Simple.

The Energy labels we are all familiar with now, are changing too – they have been redesigned to be easier to understand across the EU, and a new category (A+++) has been added. The European Energy Label shows how efficiently a product uses energy, and it is a requirement for all white goods manufactured to have one of the labels. Products are scaled from A+++ to D, D being least efficient and by purchasing a more efficient model you could save over £100 in running costs.

So, save some money, some energy and in turn help the environment – buy efficiently rated products.

Buy a Smeg FAB28 fridge from Go-Electrical from £839.90 – a variety of colours available, along with other retro models.

What about all the leftovers after a huge family Christmas, what do you do with those? Well the girls in the office have some brilliant recipes to use up any food that is left, and they can be cooked in Le Creuset products.
