Previously ladies of the house spent their entire day cooking. They had to cut vegetables, grind masalas, and make wood fires, slow cook. All this operations could not be done by one person, but this was no problem because all were joint families so there were lots of persons who were organized in teams to take care of all cooking, grinding ,cleaning bringing water from wells, ponds etc.
Now in nuclear families there is only one female to take care of everything, so it is a major task. Cooking cleaning grinding, frying etc are a major time consuming chores and if the lady is working then it is a major time management project.
Home appliances are thus every home manager’s dream come true. We have mixers grinders, food processors, fridge, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, toasters, microwave ovens. All these appliances are operated with electricity and are easily available everywhere.
Problem is purchasing best brand at economical rates. This is a headache as all products are seldom available at the same place. Prices too vary greatly from place to place. Busy schedules do not allow people to search for their desired products at competitive rates.
Local retail dealers try to extract more money as commission from naive customers. They also inform customer’s basic information about appliances.
Top brands have separate showrooms where rates may be a little more and they have other offers for customers. These appliances reduce kitchen work and thus help the person who cooks, cleans.
These appliances are available in many models, colors, sizes and every customer has an ideal choice which he/she wants in their home.
These appliances are bulky and difficult to transport which makes it more difficult for people to transport these products home.
It is sometimes not possible for all family to go out and select products. All members are either working or studying and hence have different priorities. Products selected are different for different purposes.
A.C, Fridge, washing machines is available in local markets and of top brands also. It is very confusing for customers to select one model. Information is written but difficult to compare features, prices etc.
