As the experts in choosing the best appliances for each lifestyle, we want to offer you, our advice. Here are the top appliances and features to shop for to make your life as a busy professional easier.

Features To Shop For

No matter which type of appliance you are considering purchasing, smart appliances take the cake. Smart appliances offer countless features that make life easier and help you more easily manage your daily tasks.

One of the biggest features we suggest prioritizing in all your appliances is voice activation and connectivity. Having your home appliances and devices connected through a Google Home or Alexa-enabled device is a game changer and will save you time and energy.

If you have a specific appliance that you are shopping for, we have some guidelines below on what to look for in each category to make your life as a professional easier.


If you are shopping for a new refrigerator, consider a smart fridge. Smart refrigerators can help you keep track of your grocery shopping list, check your refrigerator while you are at the store, track expiration dates, and even keep your family schedule organized and set reminders.

We highly recommend refrigerators with Samsung’s Family Hub. A few of our favorite refrigerator models for professionals include:

Miele Coffee

Washers & Dryers

There is no chore more daunting than laundry. Some features to shop for to make laundry day easier thought include:

  • Wi-Fi Capability: Select models can be started remotely, automatically adjust to your clothes soil level, alert you when cycles are completed, monitor for maintenance issues, and more.
  • Quick Wash: Quick wash cycles are perfect for busy professionals that need clothes washed at the last minute.
  • Steam Options: Steam options give your clothes new life out of the closet without a full washing.
  • Smart Dispense: Select washing machines have the option to hold up to a full gallon of laundry detergent and accurately dispense the right amount for each load.
  • Wrinkle Shield: There is nothing worse than leaving your clothes in the dryer and having to restart the cycle to remove wrinkles. Select dryers offer Wrinkle Shield or similar features to prevent your dry clothes from wrinkling.

These laundry pairs offer unique features to benefit busy professionals:

Dishwashers alone are a great option for any busy individual, but some of them can make things even simpler. We suggest shopping for these features.

  • Auto Open: Select dishwashers have doors that automatically open when the cycle is complete to let your dishes air dry. Allowing your dishes to air dry while you are at work can cut your electricity costs.
  • Wi-Fi Capability: Select smart dishwashers can alert you when your load is done, can be started from anywhere, and give you alerts for issues and required maintenance.
  • Quick Wash: Quick wash cycles are perfect to get your dishes quickly.
  • Zone Washing: Wash the bottom or top rack only if necessary for faster and more efficient washing.
  • Adjustable Spaces: Fit large or oddly shaped dishes into the dishwasher to avoid handwashing.

Dishwasher models we recommend include:

Ovens & Ranges

Whether you have a cooktop and oven or a range, there are many options shared between each that can make things easier for busy individuals.

  • Wi-Fi Capability: Preheat your oven before you get home, adjust the temperature from anywhere in multi-temperature recipes, or set timers that will go off on your phone.
  • No-Preheat Air Fry: No preheating is necessary, and your food will cook quickly and evenly.
  • Convection: Convection cooking cooks food fast and evenly.
  • Self-Cleaning & Never-Scrub Racks: Save cleaning time with these features that will make it easier for you to clean up spills or drippings.
  • Some of our top recommendations include:
