Friday, November 20, 2020A refrigerator is one of the essential appliances to have at home, but how do you know which one is right for you?

For starters, Electrolux has different refrigerator sizes for every need, all power-packed with innovative features so that keeping food fresher for longer becomes a truly convenient task. Check out these five to see which one fits you best.

With the UltraChill settings at -2°C, items are kept very cold, but not frozen so their textures are preserved for longer in chilled conditions and you do not have to worry about inconvenient defrosting.
2 Premium Performance: Side by Side Fridge (ESE5301AG-MY) Together with its premium design and power of 360 Cooling, the Electrolux Side by Side refrigerator transforms your kitchen into a place to inspire and be inspired. Understated elegance – inspiration for new possibilities for great tasting meals with the freshest ingredients. 360 Cooling circulates air throughout the entire fridge, so each compartment and shelf is cooled evenly and at a consistent temperature.

Best 5 Robotic Vacuum Cleaners in Malaysia to Buy
Friday, November 20, 2020
While our present age has often been painted with skies of flying cars and ordinary lives filled with robotic helpers serving our every whim, the current truth is not that far removed from the lofty ideals of the past - although we are still awaiting the arrival of a fully-autonomous domestic robot on the level of the Jetsons’ "Rosie", we are in fact living in the early days of an amazing age when the tedious task of vacuuming can be relegated to robots. Since we have yet to come across a human being who truly enjoys vacuuming, we assumed there would be some interest in the top five robot vacuums available in Malaysia.
Corvan picaBot Pro+ Image credit: Corvan The latest picaBot AI series robot can sweep, vacuum, mop and disinfect in one go. The combination of super high suction power, large electronic water tank, extra-long double spin brushes cleans better than most manual cleaning. Thanks to the latest laser mapping technology acting as the eyes of the robot, picaBot cleans every space systematically without missing any spot up to a whooping 3,000sqft in daylight or darkness. While drop detection and auto return to charge is standard among robotic cleaners, picaBot is at another level that is highly customisable by using the app to set cleaning areas, forbidden areas, cleaning time, suction level as well as mopping dampness. Users can also control and see the picaBot’s cleaning path real time anywhere, anytime via their mobile phone. Interested to find out more about Corvan picaBot? We did a full review of it here!
Dyson 360 Eye Image Credit: Dyson
Dyson’s 360 Eye™ hits all the right notes in an ode to the robotic vacuum cleaner: 360-degree awareness afforded by an omni-directional camera, a slim-profile recharging station for the robot to automatically dock with when it runs low on energy - and an impressive navigational package that enables this robot to track its journey around obstacles or drops while it works its way through gaps as narrow as 9 inches. While these features are expected in any robotic vacuum cleaner, the 360 Eye is differentiated by tough tank tracks where one would normally find wheels, in addition to Dyson’s own technological revolutions - the V2 digital impeller and the Radial Root Cyclone™ centrifugal action, providing higher suction while entailing lower energy requirements and noise levels.
iRobot Roomba 880 Image Credit: PCMag
When most other appliance giants steered away from robotic vacuum cleaners at the turn of the millennium, iRobot’s Roomba was charming homeowners with a pet-like personality expressed through a surprising ability to occasionally detect and avoid hazardous elements in its surroundings - which is why the Roomba brand is as synonymous to robotic vacuum cleaners as Xerox was once to photocopiers. Due in part to iRobot’s early start, one of the latest iterations of the Roomba - the 880, is equipped with a host of sensors that enables it to work with iRobot’s Virtual Wall® accessories, to push past soft obstacles, to persistently go over spots with high concentrations of dirt, and to clean one room at a time.
Neato Botvac D85 Image Credit: Neato Robotics
Typical robot vacuums use their arrays of intelligent sensors to avoid dangers such as stairs and housepets while working, but Neato Robotic’s D85 Botvac uses technology pioneered by military forces and a higher level of intelligence to map, understand, and move through its environment gracefully. Using laser range finders and the kind of simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithms found in airborne drones, the D85 Botvac plans its motions and cleans methodically - going as far as even retaining maps between battery charges so that it can continue the task at hand after a quick break.
Panasonic RULO Image Credit: 11Street
The problem of reaching for dust in the extents of a 90-degree corner has long plagued robot vacuum cleaners, but Panasonic’s Rulo gets around that issue with its novel shape - the Reuleaux triangle. The Rulo’s namesake shape enables it to reach into corners with the tips of its rotating brushes, while its 92-millimetre height enables it to slip into the forgotten realms beneath sofas and beds. As expected for appliances bearing the Panasonic brand, this particular device includes an ionising plate on its underside that grounds and renders inert any dust particles it comes across.

5 Best Kitchen Hoods in Malaysia
Friday, November 20, 2020
While we certainly appreciate the heady fumes of a home-cooked meal after a long day, most of us could do without the smell of cooking spreading to the far corners of the house between meals. As anyone who has worked over a hot stove can attest, a proper kitchen needs a means of moving air around - not just so that the chef gets to enjoy a fresh breeze, but also to keep the kitchen from turning into a spectacle of smoke and grease fires, which is why we looked at the best cooker hoods around and listed our top five favourites here.

Best Windows and Doors Solution for Homes in Malaysia
Friday, November 20, 2020Well-designed and high quality doors and windows are important to ensure your home is safe, comfortable and stylish at the same time. These two essential elements also play a significant role in bringing natural light, air and views from the outdoors while offering you privacy and security. To help you make better window and door choices, Malaysia's leading aluminum door and window manufacturer, Window Elements highlights some of the key points that you should take into consideration.
#1 ENSURING A SECURE HOME One of the main functions of your windows and doors is to keep your home safe and sound from intruders, bad weather, and in some cases - even mosquitoes! While they keep unwanted elements out and offer you privacy, they should also allow views and natural air and light into the home at the same time. When it comes to home security, the ArxTech Swing Door System from Window Elements comes highly recommended. At first glance, these aluminium doors are ultra-stylish, which means they blend perfectly into modern homes. But there's more to these doors than meet the eye. Designed as a security mesh door to replace bulky traditional steel bar doors, this system ensures optimum security by using a multi-point locking system which secures both the top and bottom of the door panel. For windows, Windows Element advises homeowners that it is always ideal to get systems that are specially designed to improve natural ventilation, especially for Malaysian weather. For instance, the Breezway Altair Louvres allow fresh air to permeate homes so that the indoor temperature can be naturally reduced and thus decreasing the need for air-conditioning systems. When closed, Altair Louvres seal tight to provide superior wind and water performance and offer a range of glazing options to suit the Asian climate.
#2 WINDOWS AND DOORS THAT LAST It's a pain when you have to replace your doors or windows every few years because of wear and tear. While it is not a major renovation, it is still a tedious project that takes up time, money and effort. It is this reason that every homeowner should invest in high quality windows and doors that are durable and hardy against our hot and humid weather. The ArxTech Casement Window from Window Elements proves to be one of the most flexible yet sturdiest systems in their collection. A security mesh system which serves to replace traditional grille bars and mosquito netting, these casement windows are also built with high performance features. Through meticulous research and testing, ArxTech offers a window system with high levels of thermal performance and a multi-point interlocking system that is able to withstand high levels of daily use and abuse (i.e. pushing and pulling forces). When you are looking for a quality door, make sure that it is made from high quality materials. The Optima 88 Folding Door from Window Elements is made from premium grade aluminium which provides strength, security, durability, user-friendly functionality and minimal maintenance. As they are made from weather-friendly materials, these folding doors are suitable as an exterior door that links to outside patio, balcony, garden or swimming pool deck.
#3 COMFORT AND EASE There's nothing more annoying than constantly having to use force to open tight windows or dealing with doors that won't close properly. Whether you want them closed, semi opened or fully opened, a good example of doors built to work efficiently is the Optima 68 Sliding Door from Window Elements. This door gives you that graceful and smooth motion, so you can open and close with great ease and comfort. No more pushing and pulling with frustration or awful screeching sounds just to get in and out.
#4 VERSATILE VARIETY More than just openings on buildings, windows and doors also contribute to the beauty and style of your home. As each home has its own design characteristics, it's essential to have different window and door options that fit different layouts to select from. Window Elements offer customers a wide range to choose from and if you are spoilt for choice, their experienced consultants can help you with selecting the best windows and doors solution for specific space requirements. For example, if you happen to like a more minimalist-styled look, the brand recommends their Optima 29 Casement Window which features a sleek appeareance and comes with an array of styles, shapes and sizes to fit different specifications. There are also different glass, powder coated colour or wood grain finishes to match your preferred interior style.
#5 EASY TO MAINTAIN Window Elements also points out that it is best to opt for windows that are easy to maintain. Blinds, for example are known to be really difficult to clean. However, the brand's WinBlind collection has a air tight enclosure which means you will no longer need to dust and clean your blinds so often as this nifty feature keeps dust at bay.
