    Bosch WVG30461GB Washer Dryer

    Bosch WVG30461GB Washer Dryer

    At first glance it can seem to have more functions than a spaceship, but after a few washes, you’ll know exactly what you need. The interface is a little sensitive which means you may find yourself accidentally pausing washes as you ricochet off it during your dance around the kitchen, but that’s easily avoidable. If you’re low on space, low on time and want to be low on effort, then the Bosch Washer Dryer WVG30461GB will be the perfect addition to your kitchen. Bish, bash, Bosch.
