I became interested in home appliances only when I already had my own family. That’s because for the first time ever, it was also when we first started buying our own appliances for our house. However, my interest was centered only on two things: brand and price. That’s mostly because the appliances such as the washing machine, dryer, and refrigerator, were mostly used by our helpers.
Since I became a WAHM in 2010, I’ve become more hands on with the chores. In fact, for the past almost two years, we haven’t had household help at all. So, the chores are shared by myself, hubby and our tween daughters. But I still do about 70% of them.
It was only when I became truly hands-on at home did I realize that in choosing appliances, one can’t think of just the brand and the price. Quality is definitely a big factor too and so are user-friendliness and ease of use. What brand do you think of when you consider these things? One of the brands that come to mind is GE because it has been around for years and is really known for being a top quality brand. Because of that it also comes with a price.
But did you know that you can now get the same quality for a lower price from another brand? Yes, you can because mabe is here!
What people may not realize is that many of GE’s top-quality products, including their refrigerators, washing machines, and more, are actually manufactured by their Mexico-based partner company, mabe.
mabe started in 1946 in Mexico and has since expanded its reach globally, manufacturing 13 brands in 15 plants and distributed products in 75 countries internationally. mabe products include refrigerators, freezers, cooking products, washers, dryers, air conditioners, microwaves, range hood and water dispenser.
Last September 8, I was invited to take part in mabe’s media launch at the Marriott Hotel.
mabe aims to “keep the modern home a happy one by ensuring that those who work the hardest in them—moms—enjoy a more efficient and stress-free experience”. The appliances they manufacture are designed to make housework less of a chore for the modern homemaker by being practical, easy to use, feature-rich, and reliable. In fact, I learned that the company’s tagline is
When your home works, everything works.
Isn’t that great news for moms like us? I personally am excited because as a work-at-home mom, I often have to multitask just so that I can finish all my chores, tend to hubby and kids plus meet my article deadlines for my clients. I really need appliances that will make my life easier.
Now, mabe would like to share with you why their appliances are the best for your home.
1. They’re affordable.
This isn’t just in terms of the price you pay to take a mabe appliance home with you. Inverter technology that powers a side-by-side refrigerator will use up less power in the long run than similar non-inverter products, and if ever there was a time to find ways to cut down your electricity bill, this is it. Even the fact that the space inside your fridge is designed to let you find things faster means you’ll be using less power because the refrigerator door will be held open for a shorter amount of time. And you might not realize it, but the money you save because your washing machine doesn’t use quite as much water as other brands do can add up to quite a lot.
2. They’re easy to use.
mabe’s technological developments have been geared toward coming up with more intuitive designs and features, the better to keep the “work” in “housework” to a minimum. For example, many of mabe’s appliances are designed to have intelligent one touch control that are meant to make it easier for everyone in the household to operate. At a touch of a button, the microwave tells you exactly how long to prepare each veggie or consumers can select the programs that fit their washing needs.
3. They offer innovative features.
The advantages mabe appliances offer aren’t limited to matters of design and practicality, they are constantly pushing for technological innovations that make the home a safer, more hassle-free place in which to live. This includes, for example, equipping your refrigerator with a smart station so you can control the conditions inside without even opening the door—that includes adjusting the temperature, setting the ice factory to automatically refill your ice tray, and programming the fridge to chill foods at a quicker rate. mabe has also designed washers that include programmable wash habits, safety locks, and more.
4. They’re reliable.
Appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, ovens, and more are not spontaneous purchases. In fact, it would ideal if you had to buy one of each item once and then never again. This is the kind of quality mabe appliance owners can appreciate, thanks to the measures the company takes to ensure that its products are the best of their class and designed for the purpose for which they will be used.
Now, I say, those are definitely great reasons why moms like us should choose mabe. I personally am very excited about two of their products. Let me share them with you.
mabe Top Mount No Frost Refrigerator (RMS1951z)
I love that this model is so spacious. Plus, it has external LED controls with Smart Stations. You no longer have to open the refrigerator just to control it’s temperature. And, the coolest thing about this is the compartment outside, which allows you to store items that you usually get from your refrigerator several times a day, such as water. With this compartment, you no longer have to keep opening the refrigerator so many times. It will definitely help lessen your energy consumption.
mabe Laundry Center 15 kg (MCL1540EE)
If there’s a chore that I really dislike it would be doing the laundry. It’s such a tedious job and with a family of five, you can just imagine the amount of laundry I need to wash in a week. Take note that we only have a manual washing machine and spinner. What I really wish for is a fully automatic washing machine, which will allow me to just leave the clothes there and come back for it when the washing and drying are all done.
So, just imagine what my reaction was when I saw this during the launch.
This model from mabe can wash up to 15kg of laundry and it can wash, spin, rinse and dry too! This will surely cut down on the time I spend doing laundry. Plus, I love that the size is just right for a small apartment like ours! I love, love, love this and hope and pray that we’d be able to have one in our place in the near future.
mabe has a lot more appliances in store for not only homes but for hotels and condos as well. Clearly, with mabe, there’s no reason why anyone should settle for less when it comes to outfitting their homes.
