Itsy bitsy teeny weeny…

… little Israeli Euro-appliances!  (Hope you didn’t think I was going to say anything else)

For a grand total of about ₪4500 (including delivery and installation), all these marvellously teeny Euro-appliances are OURS.

Washing machine (5kg, which sounds awfully tiny to me, like 5 of the 1-kg bags of flour)…


Stove… they all have this lid thing on top, but I wanted a lid that wasn’t glass because no matter how much they tell you it doesn’t break – they haven’t met my kids.




Weird thing about fridges here.  Even cheap fridges in North America are frost-free, but here you have to pay extra if you don’t want the entire inside of the unit to turn into a solid block of ice.  We don’t, so I paid extra.

Someday soon, these will be delivered to our NEW APARTMENT… and then the apartment, which is itself teeny tiny, will be full.  Literally full, like with no space to move around.  Luckily, there’s a park across the street so I can kick the kids out.

Good Shabbos!


  1. We had a washing machine dryer (one machine) in England. If yours has a hot diaper setting be VERY catious. I washed an old red shirt with my husband's underwear my first time and he wore pink underwear for a couple of years.

  2. No worries about the glass top on the stove. We've been using an oven with a glass lid for about 12 years and its still in one piece. Ours is removable at the hinge so check and see if you also have the option of taking it off.

    Good luck with the 5 kg machine! I upgraded to 7 kg and feel that I have the same capacity as my top loader in the US.


I'd love to hear what you have to say.
