here in england (london at least) the washing machine is in the
kitchen.  the spot where my non-existant dishwasher should be is where
the washing machine is placed.

started on "american fridge's" vs british ones.

Hi Angela

I have to ask:

Do you really want another BLACK appliance?

Black is decidedly passe: the colours in vogue are stainless steel,
silver or white.

I urge you to buy a silver model. Otherwise when your fridge goes pop
you will then feel obliged to buy another black model and that might
be difficult.


British fridges are like American ones.

See for yourself by checking them out on

What is called "An American Fridge" over here in the UK is typically a
double door fridge.  The doors being side by side.  These fridges
often have ice makers and water disposal.  These fridges are bigger
than the British ones here.  I purchased an "American fridge" from
Currys.  When it came time to deliver it I was told that Curry's don't
deliver American fridges above the ground floor.  So then I had to
hire a moving company to move my fridge up 2 flights of steps.  In the
end it turned out that the fridge was too large to fit up the stair
well.  Apparently it's a "health & safety" issue with Currys about
delivering these fridges.  I was told that they are too heavy. 
Americans get tehse fridges deliverd everyday.  I suspect some
laziness on the part of Currys

This is where you're wrong.  Stainless steel is on its way out. 
Everyone and their mother are getting stainless steel appliances. 
Sure, if you want to be boring like everyone else then white or
stainless steel is the way to go.  Within 5 years your place will look

By the time I need my fridge replaced I'm going to sell my flat and
move back to America.
