Fabulous new Smeg products

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Go-Electrical’s big brother, J.W Garnett Electrical, has been given some very special products to sell through their Settle based retail shop, so special that only a handful of selected retailers are allowed to sell them. These products are from Smeg, and are the Victoria range cooker (TR4110) and the new retro styled FAB50 fridge freezer (FAB50P).

The FAB50 fridge freezer is 800mm wide with a capacity of 484 litres! This means that it is now possible for customers, who require large capacity refrigeration, to have not only a functional refrigerator, but a stylish one too. Designed to look like the high-capacity fridges of the 1950s, the FAB50 is available in three retro colour options, cream, white and silver, and is A+ energy rated and completely frost-free.

This giant of the refrigerator world needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. The interior has been designed to maximise the usefulness of the space and there are two chiller compartments, 3 adjustable glass shelves and 2 large fruit and vegetable compartments. The door features compartments and holders for bottles, jars, eggs and more. To view the Smeg FAB50 come into J.W Garnett Electrical Ltd in Settle,North Yorkshire– seeing is believing.

Apparently the UK market for range cookers is the biggest in Europe, and we love the vast 110cm ones, where as they are very hard to come by on the continent. Because of this, Smeg has introduced a new range cooker to their UK range and they have named it the Victoria (TR4110).

Available in cream or black the Victoria houses contemporary technology, and British requirements in a traditional looking range cooker. It is dual fuel (seven burner gas hob) with two 68 litre ovens, a 41 litre grill and a storage drawer. The recessed door panels and traditional styled knobs give a homely feel to the appliance, but you cannot fail to see that this is a top of the range Range Cooker.

If cooking is your thing and you have always longed for a range then look no further, this might just be the one you have been searching for. Come in store, call 01729 823558 or email sales@jwgarnett.co.uk for more information

Passionate about Smeg

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

 

Whether it is located in an office, games room or a kitchen nobody can deny that the Smeg Retro refrigerators are unbelievably cool. These stylish and funky appliances have taken over a very special place in many people’s hearts, and won’t be vacating anytime soon.

The Smeg 50’s Style website (http://www.smeg50style.com) is dedicated to these fantastic fridges, and people are now encouraged to upload photographs of their Smeg appliances, or Smeg refrigerators they see while out and about. It’s a great site to get a feel for the appliances, and see how one would look in your space – you can also see the interiors of other people’s personal spaces, and being quite nosy, this is the bit I like the most!

A number of appliances are available in the Retro range, from fridge freezers to fireplaces, and here at Go-Electrical we try and have the full range on our website at amazing prices. Want to see whats available? Take a look at the Smeg video below, or our Smeg home page. Go on, fall in love a little…

Brilliantly reliable – Miele

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

 

 

 

As some of you may know Miele is a brand that you can depend on. Their vacuum cleaners are one of Go-Electrical’s biggest sellers, and their fridges sell well in our retail shop, J.W Garnett. Being German, the design and build quality of all Miele appliances is outstanding, and consumers seem to agree – Miele has come out top on the 2012 ‘Which? Reliability survey’.

Miele received a reliability score of over 90% in the washing machine, tumble dryer, cylinder and upright vacuum cleaner, freezer, fridge freezer and dishwasher categories. Over 10,000 Which? members completed the survey about appliances that they owned which were up to six years old.

Here at Go-Electrical we have always  known how brilliant Miele products are, which is why we stock them – we also try and be as competitive on price as possible too, meaning that our customers not only get genuine, quality Miele products but they don’t have to break the bank to own them.

Why not visit our Miele homepage and take a look at the products that are available, you never know, you might just turn into a believer too…

Commemorate 2012 with some brilliant products…

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Commemorative Jubilee and Olympics products are everywhere at the moment, and this includes electricals. Go-Electrical has a great selection available from radios to vacuum cleaners!

Sebo has launched the Felix Royale upright vacuum cleaner that features a Union Jack print body. The main plastic of the body is red, and we can actually imagine this being used inBuckinghamPalace(not by the Queen though of course).

Roberts Radio already produced a Revival style DAB radio, but they have now added the Union Jack Sports DAB II to their range. Pocket-sized, and perfect for listening to all the Olympic events that you can’t watch on TV, this radio is going to be a big seller.

Not to be outdone, PURE have also released some limited edition radios which feature the Union Jack design. Our favourite is the PURE Evoke Mio – a lovely compact portable DAB radio which can run off the mains or battery power perfect for long summer days in the garden.

Le Creuset has launched a range of ‘Britain Celebrates’ gift sets. Containing espresso cups, mugs and petite casserole dishes in red, white and blue, these sets would make ideal Wedding presents for any couple tying the knot in 2012.

For those people who have a larger budget, and really want to make a style statement, why not invest in a Smeg Retro refrigerator? The Union Jack models will definitely become the focal point in any kitchen, and will have friends and family green with envy.

If a Union Jack print isn’t your thing, there are plenty of products in red, white and blue to choose from. Visit the Go-Electrical Jubilee page to take a look.

Bright and colourful…

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

As the weather gets warmer we all need a fridge we can rely on to keep all our food fresh for as long as possible, and to cool our refreshments – homemade pink lemonade any one? – and here at Go-Electrical we have a thing about Retro styled fridges. Whether it be a cool Italian Smeg, or a stylish Slovenian Gorenje a kitchen is not complete without one (in our opinion). That’s why we are so happy to learn that Gorenje are expanding their range by adding two new colours to the refrigerator range.

The Gorenje Retro Style Refrigerators (RB) are already available in Burgundy, Cream, Black, Raspberry Pink, Lime Green and Juicy Orange, and Gorenje have decided to add a Volcanic Red and Mystic White to the range. The two new additions feature everything the other fridges do, including the standard 5 year warranty.

Specification:

Weight: 52.00

Width (cm): 60

Height (cm): 154

Depth (cm): 64

Energy Rating: A++

Fridge Capacity (litres): 262

Hinge: Right Hinged

The A++ energy rating means that you not only save money, but also do your bit for the environment. The fridges feature an LED display to help you accurately control the temperature your fridge is kept at, and the innovative fan system keeps everything cold and the air flowing well, which is essential for the storage of fresh food. A special vegetable crisping draw maintains the right humidity and air flow to ensure your fruit and vegetables are kept fresh for longer.

Inside you will find glass shelves which are easy to clean, and the interior panels and doors of all Gorenje refrigerators are coated with a special material containing an inorganic silver compound. This protective coating prevents harmful micro organisms from breeding and growing, even in the presence of spoilt food, and this clever protection keeps working for the entire life of the appliance! The fridge also has a small freezer compartment (or icebox) so you can have ice, and ice-cream at the ready when the weather heats up.

The new colours should be available to purchase from Go-Electrical in April/May, so keep your eyes peeled for these appearing on the website. And why not take a look at the other refrigerators available from Gorenje? You never know, one of their fridge freezers might be just what you are after…

Ice-cream for the summer ahead…

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

The sun is finally shining, the temperatures are slowly rising and the clocks change at the weekend so it means just one thing – Summer is on its way! Hurrah!

I know every year we all get really excited at the prospect of the sun shining continuously from April until September, or the fact that Mr Weatherman promises Indian summer temperatures, but then the good ol’ British weather lets us down and it rains or is freezing cold, but this year I’ve decided to make the most of whatever weather we are dealt (while keeping my fingers crossed for sun of course), and to do this I have decided that I am going to invest in an ice-cream maker. Yes, you heard me correctly, an ice-cream maker – my reasoning behind this decision is as follows;

1 – I like ice-cream. Simple.

2- During summer, being stuck inside an office, I average at least 4 ice-creams a week from May to August, that’s 64 (excluding ice lollies) in 4 months. An ice-cream cone costs £1.10 if not more – that means I spend almost £71 on ice-cream. Crikey! By buying an ice-cream maker, I would definitely save money in the long run.

3- I almost always have a tub of a very famous American duos ice-cream in my freezer, and unless it is on special offer at my local supermarket that is also a lot of money spent on ice-cream. Ooops! Please don’t tell my other half!

4- With an ice-cream maker you don’t just have to stick to vanilla, chocolate or strawberry flavours, the possibilities are endless – especially if you fancy yourself as a bit of a Heston Blumenthal wanna-be…bacon and egg ice-cream anyone?

5- If the weather doesn’t live up to expectations, and it’s wet and miserable then I will be able to close the curtains and eat ice-cream imagining that I am laid on some far-flung exotic beach.

6- How impressed are my friends and family going to be when they pop round for a BBQ and I bring out home-made ice–cream? As I am not known for being a domestic goddess, the answer to that is, VERY!

Have I convinced you that this is a brilliant idea yet? Well, if not, maybe we should take a look at some of the ice-cream makers available…

The Magimix Le Glacier is easy to use, just pre-freeze the bowl for 8-12 hours and it then just takes 20 minutes to make the ice cream. The large feed tube and the see through lid that comes with the ‘Le Glacier’, mean that you are able to pour in the ingredients, while checking to see if your creation is ready or not.

The Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker Deluxe allows you to make ice cream, frozen yoghurt, sorbets and frozen drinks. Simply place the detachable 2 litre freezer bowl into your freezer the night before using it and the next day you can have a healthy and versatile dessert in just twenty to thirty minutes. Fully automatic, simply fill the bowl with your desired mixture and press on, and the open lid allows ingredients to be added while in motion.

The Magimix Gelato Chef is a top of the range model with a built-in freezer unit so there is no pre-freezing required. You simply turn it on, stick in the ingredients and after 20 minutes, you have ice cream. If you want large batches of ice cream, then this is the model you definitely want. It comes with a detachable inner bowl and a paddle to make one batch, then you can do another in the fixed bowl which also has a paddle as well, this way you can make multiple batches even quicker.

Go on, admit it, I’ve convinced you that making your own ice-cream is the way forward! If you have decided that my way of thinking is maybe not as bonkers as you first thought, why not take a look at the full range of ice-cream makers that Go-Electrical has to offer? Go on, just think of the summer!

Be fashionable in 2012

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

According to the website adesignerspot.com colour is big for interiors in 2012;

“This year, we should all embrace colors that we wouldn’t normally associate, combine intense shades with balancing tones and think out of the box, giving our home a brand new personality. Dare to celebrate neon shades, using fluorescent green, yellow or pink, delivering thus new accent elements to your freshly decorated interior”

(www.adesignerspot.com 05/01/2012)

This got me thinking about how we can bring colour into our homes without tearing off the existing wallpaper, and painting the walls in clashing colours – can you imagine the headache – and I hit on the perfect conclusion…Coloured appliances and electricals.

Here at Go-Electrical we have a range of ‘Retro’ refrigerators that are available in some amazing colours. Whether it be a Gorenje or a Smeg, there is a fridge, or fridge freezer to match every budget and colour palette whether it be blue, pink or even candy striped (Smeg FAB28QCS £1279.90).

We also stock a fabulous range of Dualit toasters which are available in over 15 different colours. From a 2 slice Vario to a massive, family sized 6 slice toaster, Dualit should be the first port of call if you need a new toaster. Every part of the iconic appliances are replaceable which means your Dualit toaster could outlive you (grim thought, sorry!) and with Swiss-made timers used on every model you can expect nothing but reliable performance and perfect toast time after time.

To add a splash of colour to your kitchen and be in with the ‘cool crowd’ why not spend your hard earned cash (or Christmas money) on a KitchenAid Artisan Stand mixer? If you saw any of the lifestyle programs on TV last year, such as ‘The Great British Bake Off’, ‘Saturday Kitchen’ and ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Britain’ you couldn’t miss the KitchenAid mixer being used, or casually positioned in the background shots. This prominence in the media has made the mixers extremely sought after, and some colours sell out almost instantly. The mixers are available in over 25 colours, and open up endless possibilities in the kitchen because of the amazing range of accessories that are available for them. Homemade pasta anyone?

Even music lovers do not have to miss out on adding a bit of colour to their homes. PURE and Roberts Radio both make portable radios in a range of colours. The PURE Evoke Mio DAB/FM model is available in Teal, Lava, Cherry and Grape, while there is over 15 colours of Roberts RD60 Revival radios to choose from including a Union Jack print. Sounds cool to me.

Hopefully, this has convinced you that you don’t need to redecorate your whole house to be in with the fashionable crowd in 2012. Why not explore the Go-Electrical website further to see what else you can find in some lovely bright colours?

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.

Which? Award winner

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Bosch has just been awarded the prestigious WHICH? Award for ‘Best Large Home Appliance Brand for 2011’. This has been awarded in the year that Bosch celebrates turning 125 years old.

The range of products that Bosch manufactures is truly epic. They manufacture things for the automotive industry, industry and trade as well as the domestic appliances we all know and love, such as irons, vacuums, fridge freezers and power tools. Surprisingly, Bosch even create parts for wind turbines – the powertrains that are driven by the huge rotor blades are manufactured by Bosch. Betcha didn’t know that did you?

Here at Go-Electrical we have a selection of Bosch products including the new Styline kettles and toasters. The new Styline kettle not only looks great but it uses the latest technology available to provide precise temperature control, so you can get your water at the right temperature for herbal and fruit teas, and different coffees. It also has a great ‘keep warm’ function, which means that there is no need to repeatedly boil the kettle as it maintains the selected water temperature for up to 30 minutes. Great if you live in a household that is addicted to “brews” – less boiling, means less energy used, which in turn saves you money.

The Styline kettles and toasters are available in black and white (from £56.90)

There is also a great range of Bosch vacuum cleaners available. These great cylinder vacuums are very reliable, and there are bagless models as well as traditional bag-taking machines. At the moment selected Bosch vacuums are on offer while stock lasts, so why not take a look at what is available? One of the best sellers is the BSG8PRO1GB – It has a top of the range compressor motor, which is guaranteed for 10 years, and it comes with a professional starter pack of accessories to get you up and running as soon as you get it out of the box.
