ORLANDO, Fla., — Maytag family of brands is introducing new products that combine the conveniences consumers want with the performance they demand during the 2006 International Builders’ Show, Jan. 11-14.

From the industry’s first refrigerator that combines consumers’ favorite features in one appliance to the world’s first “sport utility vacuum” to a slide-in range that makes kitchen island cooking and entertaining easy.

Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator

Today’s time-starved families demand a lot from their refrigerators: Easy access to ice and water for the kids to cool down after the big game; plenty of room to store fresh food, including large deli platters for entertaining and well-organized storage that puts everything from beverages to frozen meals within convenient reach.

There no longer is a need to compromise on any of these features with the new Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator. It combines features of a side-by-side and bottom-freezer refrigerator in one design, with the industry’s first external filtered ice and water dispenser on a French door and the largest-available fresh food capacity.

Until now, consumers had to choose either a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water on the door or a bottom-freezer model that offered wider storage for fresh foods, but no external ice dispenser.

Hoover Introduces World’s First Sport Utility Vacuum For An All-Terrain Cleaning Experience

Hoover has introduced the world’s first sports utility vacuum designed to seamlessly conquer any surface for a high level of cleaning. The Hoover Z Bagless Upright Vacuum is a first-of-its-kind cleaner that comes fully loaded for an entirely new performance in the floor-care category.

Consumers’ cleaning needs have changed due to the growing trend of multiple floor surfaces within the home. Today’s home requires a single vacuum that can adjust to different carpet levels and transition from hard to delicate surfaces, both on and above the floor. The features of the Hoover Z Bagless Upright address major concerns voiced by vacuum users — the starting and stopping motion of the cleaning process as users switch between vacuums and modes, the need for efficient cleaning across multiple surfaces and heights and the maintenance associated with cleaning and replacing the main filter. The Hoover Z bagless upright focuses on all aspects of vacuuming from set up and start to use and storage, designed to provide a truly satisfying cleaning experience.

Features of the new vacuum include a DigiTouch control pad allowing for a seamless, automatic adjustment between surfaces and settings without the need to bend over the vacuum, and a patent-pending self-cleaning HEPA filter that automatically cleans itself every six seconds and never needs replacing to maintain a high level of cleaning. Its super-stretch hose extends 20 feet for convenient above-the-floor cleaning of curtains, drapes, molding and tops of stairs. The patent-pending collapsible Z-Fold design also offers the performance and convenience of an upright with the flexibility and stability of a canister in one vacuum.

Maytag also unveiled a new Jenn-Air slide-in range for a kitchen island.
