Samsung unveiled its suite of top-load Best Buy.at CES 2015. After a four-month wait, you can finally snag a 5.2- or a 4.8-cubic-foot model in either platinum or white at retail stores like
Unlike standard clothes-washers, these quirky little units come with built-in sinks so you can soak away stubborn stains without having to make a run for the kitchen or the bathroom. Now, that may seem like the height of laziness, but Samsung says it's just trying to lighten your laundry load.
Here's how it's supposed to work: the sink has a slightly textured surface designed to agitate grit and grime just like an old fashioned washing board and the machine can dispense a stream of water so you can hand-wash fragile items.
Prices range from $899 for the 4.8-cubic-foot washer with a white finish (model number WA48J7770AW) on up to $1,199 for the 5.2-cubic-foot model with a more premium-looking silvery platinum finish (WA52J8700AP).
We obviously want to try one of these things out for ourselves, so check back soon for a full review.
