28 May 14 AEG OKOKombi Plus washer dryer and OKOMix washing machine


AEG introduces the first ever washer dryer with heat pump technology, the ÖKOKombi Plus, and its most efficient, high performance washing machine ever, the ÖKOMix.

Designed for the most efficient combined washing and drying performance in the world, the ÖKOKombi Plus uses 40% less energy compared to other ‘A’ energy rated washer dryers. It is best in class when it comes to energy and water usage, and the ‘A -40%’ energy rating equates to a saving of up to £70 per year in energy costs alone, compared with an ‘A’ rated model.

In addition to its very high efficiency and performance, the robust yet gentle ÖKOKombi comes with the 9 kg Protex Soft Drum that has tiny rounded holes, enabling it to treat even the most delicate of fabrics, like silk and wool, with the utmost care and attention.

Heat pump technology also enables drying at around 70°C, which is much lower than in conventional washer dryers and tumble dryers that use standard condenser technology. This means that fabrics are handled incredibly gently and are subjected to less heat during the drying process, meaning they are much less likely to shrink and fade. These superb performance and fabric care attributes have been certified with the Woolmark Blue accreditation, meaning that you can safely wash and dry Hand Wash Only garments to an exceptionally high standard.

The ÖKOKombi Plus also features the soft steam programs to deliver fluffy, crease free results, making ironing incredibly easy and hassle free. Steam is also the perfect solution for freshening up worn-once items and for giving delicate garments the attention and care they deserve.

Up to 6 kg of laundry can be washed and dried non-stop in one single cycle. All you have to do is activate the drying program at the start of the wash cycle, and drying will begin automatically when the machine has finished washing. This means that there is no need to separate the laundry or manually start the drying program.

AEG ÖkoKombi Plus L99695HWD 9+6kg washer dryer is equipped with the Permanent Magnet Inverter Motor which is up to 50% more efficient than a standard inverter motor, and is incredibly durable and very quiet. This washer dryer also employs the SilentSystem Plus for incredibly quiet operation.

The OptiSense system automatically adjusts program settings to maximize performance and minimize energy and water consumption, ensuring colours stay rich and vibrant for longer and energy costs are kept to a minimum.

Other features include,
– AutoOff automatically switches the machine off 10 minutes after the wash cycle ends
– intuitive LCD touch control and stainless steel panel
– 1,400 rpm max spin speed
– 5 year warranty
Price for the AEG ÖkoKombi Plus L99695HWD is £1,300.


The new AEG ÖKOMix washer offers an ‘A+++ -50%’ energy rating and Woolmark Platinum Accreditation. This washing machine comes with the innovative Pre-Mixing technology and the ÖKO Inverter Permanent Magnet Motor. You can wash everything from large 9kg cotton loads to the most delicate of Hand Wash Only garments such as silk and cashmere, while keeping a green conscience.

Unlike with the majority of washing machines that mix laundry, water and detergent together, so the detergent takes a rather long time to dissolve and get to work, with ÖKOMix Pre-Mixing technology, the detergent is first added to water to make an instant, concentrated wash mix. Then AEG DirectSpray system delivers the mix directly into the heart of your laundry, where it begins to work immediately. This results in a more thorough, yet gentle wash, that uses less energy and is just as effective at 30°C as it is at 40°C.

A full 9 kg load of soiled laundry can be washed perfectly at ‘A+++ -50%’ in under 3.5 hours, while smaller loads will be cleaned using the optimum amount of time, water and energy, as determined by the ÖKOMix washer many intelligent sensors. In comparison, other models available today promising the same extraordinary energy efficiency rating can take as long as 7 hours to complete the same wash.

The ÖKOMix washing machine comes with the Woolmark Green certificate for its exceptionally gentle care of woolen and cashmere garments. It treats all Hand Wash Only garments, no matter how expensive or delicate, with expert care.

The designated steam program can refresh Dry Clean Only suits and dresses, saving time and money.

The AEG L89499FL ÖKOMix washer perfectly complements the AEG ProSteam dryer, with matching large glass door, control panel and sleek silver frame. The LogicControl touch display is made of high quality stainless steel and has an anti fingerprint coating. Thanks to the intuitive menu guide, the washing machine is also extremely easy to operate.

The ÖKOMix washer features 16 programs including Super Eco, Delicates, Dry Clean Only. Price is £800. AEG.

16 May 12 Miele vacuums with AirClean filter bag plus Sealed System


The Miele patented AirClean Filter-Bag plus Sealed System ensures improved indoor air quality, making homes healthier and cleaner. Tested by an independent laboratory the proprietary cleaning system captures and retains over 99.9% of harmful pollutants – an average of 21 times more than popular HEPA-filtered bagless vacuums. On average, the leading HEPA-filtered bagless vacuum cleaner emitted over 175,900 lung-damaging particles per minute during comparative testing.

Bagless vacuums equipped with only a HEPA filter, and not Sealed System technology, do not effectively prevent particle emissions during vacuuming. Additionally, harmful, toxic matter is released into the air when bagless vacuums are emptied into the trash, creating noxious air indoors.

When using any vacuum without a Sealed System or one without a proper filtration system, carbon is emitted from the machine. This fine particulate matter, invisible to the naked eye, is left suspended in the air we breathe. Particles measuring 0.3-0.5 microns have a greater likelihood of being inhaled into the lungs, where they are absorbed into the bloodstream or remain embedded in lung tissue. While your floor may appear cleaner, the air you take in may not be.


A common misconception is that bagless vacuums are more environmentally-friendly than those requiring bags. Given the data, bagless vacuums significantly contribute to infusing the air with harmful particles, suggesting it is not at all hygienic to employ these machines. Additionally, many bagless machines require more frequent emptying than those with bags, further contributing to poor indoor air quality.

Miele AirClean Filter-Bags are made of a durable, nine-layer electro-static fiber which grabs fine particles that can leak through lesser quality bags. An Auto-Sealed collar, which fits snugly around the bag, is made of durable plastic that snaps shut when the bag is removed, eliminating the possibility of dust escaping, thus the Miele Sealed System. Some are concerned about the impact of vacuum cleaner bags on the environment. Given the potential health risks associated with bagless vacuums it would appear the trade off is a worthy one. To prevent illness and the spread of unhealthy debris, it is critical to employ protective bags with a Miele AirClean Sealed System. Miele.
