When you are in the market for a new washing machine, it can seem daunting to choose anything other than the type of machine you already have. Traditionally, washing machines were usually smaller, with 7kg and 8kg machines being the norm. However, the familiar is not always the best option.
With many people having busy lifestyles, demanding jobs, or bigger families, choosing a larger washing machine can actually make life easier by reducing the amount of time spent doing laundry. So what is a 10kg washing machine and how does it differ from other machines?
10kg does not reference the weight of the machine, instead, it refers to the maximum weight your washing machine can handle at one time. So the higher the weight of your machine, the more washing you can do at one time. A 10kg washing machine can generally hold up to 50 items. You could wash multiple duvets at once, wash all your pillows and cushions, and even curtains.
A 10kg washing machine is usually recommended for large families. However, people who want to do laundry less frequently may also find them beneficial.
A larger washing machine means less time loading and unloading and fewer washes needed per week. Not only will this save you time and effort, but you could also save on your energy bills. A 10kg washing machine can save as much as 10% per kg when compared to a 7kg machine. The fact that you will be doing fewer washes per week can also result in a saving on your household bills.
The Ebac 10kg washing machine was also rated A+++ on the old energy scale, which was the highest possible rating. This combined with the time saver setting and the extra recirculating pump results in a more efficient, energy-saving wash.
