All in one washing machine dryer and ironer.

All in one washing drying and ironing

Not many people like ironing – my wife hates it, and it’s a big source of friction between us because I’d happily go out in an un-ironed shirt, but she can’t stand to see me looking scruffy, so she irons a shirt for me every morning and complains about it over breakfast.

This all in one machine is a great idea that combines two of my favourite themes in gadgets – convergence, and marital harmony. It’s a Laundromat that washes your clothes, dries them leaving them crease-free and ready to wear.

The all in one washing machine was conceived by a recently-graduated design student, Oliver Blackwell, who claims that the device will save 10 days a year ironing time. I’m a touch sceptical about that, but I’m sure it could save my marriage!

Unlike conventional washing machines, this one doesn’t have a drum; avoiding creasing, and the hot air dryer means that your clothes shouldn’t need ironing after cleaning. It looks a bit large though, and I’m wondering how much water and electricity it used to wash and rinse that t-shirt. I don’t know for sure, but I suspect it’s not a “tree-huggingly”, environmentally friendly machine, but what price can you put on the “10 days a year” you might save, and how much do you hate ironing!!

Price expected to be around $1500 from AG UK (but the server has problems; no doubt due to the massive interest!)
