Hot enough for ya’?

“Yeah,” you say, whilst administering a swift kick to our teeth.

Who can blame you? We’re all tired, a bit sun-burned … and there’s more than a little sweat-rash going round to make everyone cranky.

‘Kay, everyone agree – it’s a stinking hot summer.

Well, take a chill pill: Appliances Online is running a New Year’s Sale right now that’ll make dealing with it all that much easier … not to mention affordable.

Let’s cut to the chase with a list of some of our choicest goodies. We’ll make these suggestions (avoiding nauseating references to prices that are “hot” or “sizzling”) while dispensing some zen wisdom – ‘cos we know you’re at a tipping point in the summer heat.


Yeah, we’ve had a few warm days lately – and for all those who think 45 degrees is a bit on the funky side, this puppy could bring welcome relief.

Fujitsu Reverse Cycle Split System Air Conditioner

Not only does it deliver the oomph you require to ride out a heat wave (with a potent 2.5kW cooling capacity) … it also has a 3.4kW heating capacity to help you make things nice and snuggly should we, by some remote possibility, ever see freaking winter again. 

That it’s been reduced to a sale price of $937 (36% off the RRP) is good news – but we particularly dig the fact it’s got a particularly awesome four star energy star rating.

Sunbeam Pedestal Fan

Trouble sleeping at night ‘cos it’s too darn hot? … saturating your bed-sheets in (please note) sweat?

Well, there’s nothing like a fan to soothe a fevered brow. Not only do they cool us down, we also love the soft, tranquil hush they provide – and this high-quality and extremely effective fan is available at a sale price of only $119.

Kelvinator 420L Fridge

We’re recommending a fridge during Summer? Who’d have thunk it? Bet you’re amazed with that one.

Well, it’s not only a great time to buy a fridge – lest your food stocks turn into rancid repositories of voracious multicellular bacteria – it’s also SALE TIME!

So, how ‘bout this one from Kelvinator? It’s an superbly practical, efficient and effective model, boasting plenty of storage space and a host of neat features like adjustable spill-safe glasses, a humidity controlled crisper, and an easy clean exterior surface … – oh and it also keeps things really cool as well.

A Rinnai Hot Water System 

Yeah right, you’re probably thinking: “great idea, doofus”, just what you need during a heat-wave – a piping hot shower.

Well, unless you want to seal yourself up in your own filth, you’re going to have to scrub that summer sweat off at some point. And there’s only so times you can have a cold shower before it starts seriously impacting on your love life. And that’ll just make you MADDER.

So here’s a highly efficient, cost-effective, reliable, effective and … just plain neato way to get hot water. It’s a Continuous Flow Hot water system (as opposed to storage cylinder solutions). They’re compact and easy to install while saving on the power required to keep a tank of water heated on standby.


You know when it’s so hot – you just couldn’t be bothered to do anything. When breathing is kind of an issue. And minor requests feel like major-league demands.

And yet, here’s the rub, you still want to carry on with some of life’s more elemental occupations – like eating for instance. You need to make life easy for yourself. Short of spooning a can of baked beans straight into your mouth, a toasted sandwich is just about the simplest thing around. That’s where this little number comes in:

Breville Sandwich Press

This sandwich press is one of the more excellent models out there – it’s big, with the heavy-duty capability to create a meal of toasties and melts for the whole family.

Panasonic Microwave

On the same theme, getting a primo microwave is also important – like this Panasonic baby, for instance, offering a host of automatic features that basically means that you cook up something pretty fab at the press of a couple of buttons. Once you can drag your sorry ass out of the bath.


We’re going to have to draw a king-size bow to make the link between hot weather and cookware.

Let’s just say, that good cooking food transcends the seasons – and that after a shatteringly hot day a good meal is generally a well-deserved way to replenish one’s strength (if you want to treat yourself with something more than a toastie or microwaved meal). Hence, this may be what you’re after.

Omega Upright 70cm Gas Oven

This superb upright oven delivers performance, style and durability in spades … as its high popularity amongst our customers attests.

About as functional as you can get without actually having an automatic “Cook Anything and Everything Deliciously” button, it offers five quality gas burners – including one wok burner. Fan-assisted gas technology is a primo choice for those looking for great results: you’ll enjoy even cooking and the ability to dish up beautifully succulent and moist food.

And, of course, there’s loads more on offer at the New Year’s Sale – check out the full list here.
