Whether you aim to spend less time on laundry or upgrade your home-cooked meals, we’ve got the lowdown on these new appliances you’ll be glad to have around the house.

The new Bosch Series 8 Ovens ($999 – $3,999), which were granted the 2015 German Design Award, features 21 new technologies that will make hosting your next dinner party a breeze.

The new and upgraded LG TWINWash enables two separate loads to wash and spin simultaneously by combining a full-sized front load washing machine with a mini washer in a hide-away pedestal underneath. The mini washer washes smaller or separate loads such as whites, delicates, baby wear and more. With the new technology, you can save time and utility costs when doing laundry. There are two TWINWash models, one features a front load washer and a mini washer ($2,099) and the other features a washer-dryer combo and a mini washer ($2,199), both of which feature TrueWash, TrueStream and Steam Softener technologies for an efficient wash.
