Question: Did you see any interesting new products at the recent Pacific Coast Builders Conference in San Francisco?
Answer: Yes, there were several. One of the companies that I have always liked has introduced two new products.
One is a counter-top dishwasher called "Husqvarna." It is manufactured by Electrolux of Sweden and would be very useful, particularly for renters who do not wish to install a permanent dishwasher. It is housed in a stainless-steel cabinet and uses only a little over 3 1/2 gallons of water.
The other is a compact automatic washer/dryer combination that can wash up to 12 pounds of dry weight. Its dimensions are 34 inches high, 23 inches wide and about 21 inches deep.
Another useful product this firm has is a pop-out ironing board that folds up and fits into a drawer. The dealer in California is Water Inc., P.O. Box 3658, Manhattan Beach 90266.
