Asthma Allergy Body Recommends Blueair Air Purifiers



As the UAE races towards summer, the incidence of allergies is on the rise thanks to dust-storms, hay fever and more time spent in unclean indoor environments. On the occasion of World Allergy Week, an annual event taking place from April 7-13 this year, the nation’s residents are being urged to pay more attention to their health by employing better prevention and management strategies such as air purifiers in their homes and cars, to mitigate the impact of allergens.

Asthma Allergy Nordic, the association of allergy and asthma organisations, recommends Blueair air purifiers for those suffering from hypersensitivity to allergens such as dust, pollen and pet dander. These triggers are a growing global concern with their cost to the global economy estimated in millions of dollars each year, thanks to lost sick-days, medication and physicians’ visits.

“At Blueair, we are committed to improving the lives of people suffering from allergy and asthma by providing best-in-test air purifiers that remove allergens such as dust, mites, pollen, pet dander and chemicals from the air,” said TR Ganesh, General Manager, Blueair Middle East. “We are therefore proud that Asthma Allergy Nordic recommends our air purifiers for people with asthma, allergies and respiratory problems.”

World Allergy Week, an annual World Allergy Organization initiative to raise awareness of, and advocate for, better management and prevention of allergies and related diseases such as asthma. With nine out of 10 people on the planet breathing polluted air, known to both cause and exacerbate allergies, this is an important initiative.

There are three main triggers for UAE residents. Dust storms are endemic to the UAE and sand particles inhaled during such atmospheric events can irritate the respiratory airways, with the viruses and bacteria in desert dust causing infections. Indoors, it is household dust that causes the problem, principally because of the presence of dust mites, the tiny organisms that feed on skin and waste proteins found in dust.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, dust mites may be the most common trigger of year-round- allergies and asthma. In the UAE, dust and dust mites are a major problem for residents because air-conditioners and their ducts are usually not properly cleaned, and even when they are, they may still leave several allergens undetected. Some 150 million people around the world are allergic to dust.

Pollen allergies comprise the third major irritant. About 40% of the world’s population or 3 billion people suffer from hay fever, or allergic rhinitis, a risk factor for asthma and other chronic upper-airway diseases. Seasonal allergic rhinitis generally lasts between two and four months but due to climate change, which makes the pollen season both longer and more intense, and air pollution, which exacerbates the effects, studies indicate that the number of sufferers will double by 2050. In the UAE, pollen is a particular problem as imported plants and trees contribute to the plant matter in the atmosphere.

Air purifiers work by filtering out these problematic particles. Blueair’s unique HEPASilent technology removes 99.97% of all airborne particles down to 0.1 micron in size including pollen, smoke, dust, mold, spores, bacteria, viruses and pet allergens. “Breathing clean air is essential for a healthy living. For asthma and allergy sufferers, access to clean air can help reduce the need for medication,” Ganesh added.

Blueair has a range of air purifiers for home and professional use. Asthma Allergy Nordic, a collaboration between the asthma and allergy organizations in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, recommend Classic 405, Classic 480i, Classic 605 and Classic 680i. The Classic range is among Blueair’s most high performing air purifiers used today by consumers in over 60 countries around the world. The Blueair Classic 405 is also, for the second year in a row, recognized as “Best-in-Test” in an independent laboratory testing of 10 different air purifier brands conducted by accredited Intertek Testing & Certification and IBR Laboratories in 2019.

LG to Show Off WashTower Compact at IFA 2022



LG Electronics (LG) will show off its new WashTower Compact laundry solution at IFA 2022. The new WashTower is a fully integrated two-in-one that combines a separate washer and dryer, an all-in-one control panel, and advanced AI in a single, space-efficient unit to deliver greater convenience. It will be coming to the UAE market at the end of October 2022.

“An ideal laundry solution for a one or two-member household, the new WashTower brings better space efficiency to the home. Compared to the 2019 WashTower, its larger sibling, width, and depth have been reduced by 100 and 170 millimeters, respectively, while its washer offers a generous 13-kilogram capacity and its dryer, a 10-kilogram capacity. The product’s lower height – cut down by 235 millimeters – allows for more comfortable access to laundry in the dryer positioned on the appliance’s upper half, easier filter management, and the ability to install WashTower Compact in rooms with lower ceilings. Requiring less installation space than a stackable or side-by-side washer and dryer pair of the same laundry capacity, the relatively small model frees up space in the kitchen or laundry room for other uses, such as the convenient storage of detergents, fabric softeners, and linen,” the company said.

LG’s new all-in-one laundry solution also boasts a flat, unibody design that provides an optimal laundry experience and brings a subtle, minimalist aesthetic to the home. Located on the front of the appliance in between the washer and dryer, the Center Control lets users easily manage all settings and functions from one convenient place. WashTower Compact can integrate seamlessly with any type of décor or interior style, helping consumers to create a home environment that perfectly reflects their individual tastes.

What’s more, the innovative, new WashTower model takes the user experience – and laundry results – to the next level via the company’s advanced laundry technologies. Employing the Artificial Intelligence Direct Drive (AI DD), the washer is able to identify the most suitable washing pattern (drum motions, water temperature, and wash cycle time) for each load, reducing fabric damage to help the clothes last longer. Meanwhile, the Smart Pairing feature saves users time and hassle by syncing the dryer with the washer; automatically selecting the best drying cycle based on washer load settings.¹ An excellent all-around performer, LG WashTower Compact also cuts down on washing times with TurboWash™ 360 and drying times via the Prepare to Dry preheating feature.

“Boasting a more space-friendly design, and equipped with LG’s latest AI-based laundry technologies, WashTower Compact delivers an exceptionally convenient user experience,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to listen to consumers and meet their diverse and changing needs by developing smart, tech- and design-forward appliances for a better life at home.”

LG will be showcasing its latest innovations, such as the new WashTower Compact at its exhibition booth (Hall 18, Messe Berlin) during IFA 2022 (September 2-6) in Berlin, Germany.

Panasonic Launches the new MX-MG5421 Blender With Durable Sawtooth Blades



Panasonic has launched the MX-MG5421 Blender. The MX-MG5421 is built with unique Japanese technologies that help preserve every bit of goodness and nutrition in your favourite food. Its top-tier features include a high-performance 800 W motor, a stainless-steel sawtooth blade cutting system and powerful circulation using the V & M technology, making MX-MG5421 your ideal partner to kick-start your journey to creating healthy summer concoctions, be it smoothies, desserts or other home-made treats.

The MX-MG5421 is built to handle the toughest of ingredients with its powerful combination of motor strength and durable sawtooth blades. The four-blade system is designed asymmetrically to increase the cutting range by preventing the blades from rotating around the same locus. Combining this extensive range of motion and the optimised sawtooth blade shape, height, thickness, and sharpness all together work to deliver a finer and more consistent mixture. Furthermore, this powerful crushing feature can pulverize up to 250g of ice cubes at a time, making it easy to create healthy cold treats with a snowy texture and consistency.

The blender is also equipped with V&M technology, ensuring the ingredients are mixed well while providing consistent blend results. The dual direction – ‘V motion’, which lifts the elements and the ‘M movement’, which strikes food against the four-ribbed wall of the conical-shaped glass jug – and then lets them drop and settle in the centre – allows for thorough blending while eliminating stuck ingredients on the side or at the bottom of the jug.

The MX-MG5421’s speed control options will easily take care of the work and let you create various homemade recipes.  Speed 1 and 2 operate at a constant speed for a smooth finish, perfect for a velvety pumpkin soup or the family-favourite peanut butter. On the other hand, Pulse 1 and 2 operate while the button is pressed for a customised finish so you can create nutritious dips and smoothies the way you like them.

“These days, more and more people look for ways to blend fresh flavour and good nutrition in the way they eat. The MX-MG5421 Blender was created with this in mind as it has unique features which allow users to easily incorporate fruits and vegetables into preparing their favourite meals and snacks all year round. As it is summer, it even presents itself as a convenient solution to prepare and enjoy smoothies and ice fruit lollies that the kids and the whole family will love, all without the fear of extra sugar and artificial sweeteners in them,” Katsuki Nishimura, PMMAF, said.

Truly versatile, the MX-MG5421 also comes with two Dry Mills, which make it more hygienic as users get to use a dedicated mill for specific ingredients. The appliance is equipped with a safety interlock feature, which prevents it from operating if the jug and stand are not correctly set. Sealed lips make the cup firmly closed so you don’t have to worry about it leaking during use. It also comes with a T-shaped scraper/pusher, which can be inserted through the lid opening while blending for easy stirring and pushing down ingredients.

Keeping the MX-MG5421 sparkly clean is a cinch with its cleaning mode function. It allows for quick and hassle-free cleaning, while a detachable jug base makes it a breeze to keep the blades extra hygienic. The Panasonic MX-MG5421 Blender is now available across Panasonic outlets in the Middle East and online on Amazon UAE.
