Happy Hundredth Year!

September 4, 2012 by Kenmore

Kenmore is celebrating a big milestone this year. We are officially in our 100th year of delivering appliance innovations that make American life easier, cleaner, fresher and more comfortable. Appliances that create more of what we all need and want — “me time.”

Few innovations have improved our quality of life the way automated laundry has. Before electricity became common in American homes a century ago, doing laundry meant hauling large, heavy tubs of water and scrubbing clothing by hand on wash boards. A task that cut into “me time” — in a big way.

Over the past 100 years, there have been real advancements in how this automated taskmaster cleans and dries your clothes. And Kenmore has been on the cutting edge of these advancements. From creating cycles and options that clean clothes more quickly, carefully and effectively than ever before — to introducing features that save you money while conserving precious natural resources — Kenmore has been leading the way.

These first hundred years have flown by, we know how short life can be. So as the pace of life continues to quicken and the demands on our free time grow greater, you can trust that Kenmore will continue to do their part to make sure that you have time every day to do something that really matters. Something just for you.

We love to hear how other people spend their “me time”. If you had 15–30 extra minutes a day to do something just for you, what would that be? Pot a plant, read a book, take a walk? Let us know, we’d love to hear from you.
