Haier MW-BQ8S Mini
• About $157.00
You can forgive me for somehow missing the Haier MW-BQ8S Mini at CES 2012 earlier this year. The 26 x 28 x 38 cm compact washing machine is about the size of a medium sized kitchen waste bin (photo for size reference), so it's easy to mistake it for anything but a washing machine. Inside, the top loading MW-BQ8S washes smaller items with an "ozone sterilization" mode with three washing programs. No word yet whether this space saving, apartment dweller-compatible models will hit US soil, but you can import them for under $160 before shipping fees...tempting for an apartment dweller without laundry on the premises like myself!
