machine for household uses
A Home appliance is any consumer-electronic machine use to complete some household task, such as cooking or cleaning. Home appliances can be classified into:
- Major appliances, or white goods
- Small appliances
This division is also detectable in the service area of these kinds of products. Most Brown goods require high technical knowledge and skills, while white goods need more practical skills and brute force to make the devices work, and heavy tools required to repair them.
The invention of home appliances led to a decline in employment of domestic workers in the 20th century.
