Shonky Awards

Recommended Posts

adiantum

Does every country have a testing  body that investigates products to see if they behave as they are claimed ?

in Australia we have CHOICE  & they give annual Shonky Awards to failed products 

 

This years Shonky item is a washing machine that washes & dries the same load.

Apparently it  uses a mega amount of water plus 61/2 hours to do the load.

This is not a cheap washer at $3K.
