The Bachelor's Guide to Household Appliances

A tsunami of domestic artificial intelligence is headed our way! We love you, technology.

Staff Writer

Some say maintaining a household is tantamount to running a corporation; while that may come off as a gross overstatement, you need to have a certain flair in the kitchen and a fairly astute mind to pull it off. You must have a positive outlook on life to see value in the modern conveniences technology affords us, like washing our clothes from the comfort of our homes, for instance. You don’t have to be a housewife to appreciate home appliances!

Just when you thought technology was bad for your social life, Fagor comes to Egypt! Leading domestic and commercial appliance manufacturer Fagor Electrodomésticos has been changing lives across Europe for over 50 years now, positioning itself as one of the biggest names in the world of washing machines, microwave ovens, and refrigerators – ask any soccer mom! The Spain-based manufacturer invests over 50 percent of its revenue in research and development, bringing state-of-the-art free-standing and built-in home appliances to homes across Europe, and now across Egypt as well.

Spain’s largest consumer appliance company is coming to Egypt! Misr Helwan for Import and Export is the brand’s only licensed franchisee in the country – we got the 411 from the company’s Co-Owner and Director of Business Development ,Heba AbdelNaby, who confirmed the good news to us!

We know the concept of household appliances is a foreign one to many of us; however, now that artificially intelligent washing machines, ovens, and fridges are all set to invade our homes, it would bode well to get acquainted with their intricacy.    

Cooker Hood

"Why get a cooker hood?" you ask. Because it helps you maintain a cleaner and healthier kitchen environment by purifying the air and absorbing fumes and grease emanating from your stove. Fagor cooker hoods are easy to operate, fully integrated with touch controls, have the lowest sound levels, and are all equipped with GreenForce motors, which have been proven to save more energy and perform more effective extraction of the air in the room.

Washing Machines and Dryers  

We’ve never understood how some people can look neat and smell like fresh laundry on a weekday. Prepare to be amazed; drum roll, please... They wash and dry their clothes! You too can be hygienically approachable with Fagor’s washing machines and dryers because you don’t even have to be an expert on matters of the household. The appliance comes with ready-made programs and built-in sensors that detect the load and adjust water and energy consumption accordingly. And you don’t even have to worry about ironing your shirts, because Fagor dryers are equipped with a most wondrous feature: a reversing system, which minimizes creases, making ironing easier. It also assigns a time duration to the drying operation based on humidity levels.   

Refrigerator and Freezers

There is more to a refrigerators and freezers than low temperatures; apparently they’re designed to preserve food or something, because Fagor’s refrigerators and freezers have compartments for meat and fish proven to preserve said items twice as long as other fridges. So, yay, because given our abject lack of talent in the kitchen, it will be a while before we actually cook the meat or fish. Fagor refrigerators also come with a ‘holiday function’, which minimizes the temperature to save energy while you’re away.


We don’t even have to sell you on dishwashers because who wants to get in an argument over whose turn it is to wash the dishes every night? We all know how it’s never anybody’s turn. Fagor’s dishwashers are energy efficient, silent and they save you the hassle of figuring out the appliance because they come with ready-made programmes; the interior of the appliance is also equipped with sensors that detect load and adjust the consumption of resources accordingly.      


Fagor ovens incorporate water tanks, which supply steam to food, which prevents it from drying up. They are easy to clean due to the interior cavity being coated with Top Slide non-porous enamel, which prevents grease from accumulating on its walls. And the best part is: they are smart and crafty little kitchen helpers! A Fagor oven can retain your preferences and use them later; hell, they can even assign cooking parameters based on the type of food being cooked. If you have problems following this trail of thought, you need to get your hands on one of these babies!
