How are household appliances classified?

The world of technology advances by leaps and bounds; every week and practically every day, new advances are presented that make their predecessors obsolete. Nowadays, even the smallest detail is considered when customizing and developing appliances that simplify our lives. But these advances entail a more excellent technical specification, and, often we need help finding many labels: Product line, energy classification, range, … This article will classify appliances by line: White, Brown, Gray and PAE.

Here, you can learn more about energy classification.

White line 

Although the classifications are sometimes stringent, the differences are minimal on other occasions. Thus, within this line, we would include all those appliances that we could define as “classic” in the kitchen, home cleaning and laundry.

Washing machines

Dryers

Dishwasher

Ovens

Microwave

Fridges, freezers and refrigeration in general

Extractor hoods

Also, within this group, we would include AAs ( air conditioners ), electric domestic stoves and heaters.

Brown Line

Within the classification of household electrical appliances, this line of products refers to all those devices intended for leisure or multimedia purposes:

  • Televisions
  • Audio players: radios, mini-systems, music equipment…
  • Video players: DVD, Blu-ray, the almost extinct VHS (today, there are many of us who, out of nostalgia, keep our collection of VHS tapes on the living room shelves)
  • Video game platforms (Video consoles, Gamer PCs)
  • Personal computers (PC, MAC)
  • Telephony
  • Home cinema

Gray Line

In this classification, we refer to all devices we could classify as computer accessories or peripherals. However, some also include computers (especially if they are portable) because, as we said before, the differences are often minimal and serve more to the companies’ criteria rather than a strict classification. Thus, in this classification, we can find:

  • Printers
  • FAX
  • Desktop computers, laptops…
  • Tablets
  • E-books and PDAs
  • Mobile phones

As we have already pointed out, this line differs slightly from the “Brown Line”; some transfer some elements to this list.

PAE (Small Appliance)

This group encompasses the vast majority of devices that are around the house today in this increasingly technological world:

  • Shavers, hair clippers, hair straighteners, electric curlers…
  • Single-dose coffee makers, electric coffee makers, mini ovens, barbecues and grills, juicers, blenders, American glasses, blenders, toasters, sandwich makers, deep fryers…
  • Irons and ironing centers, manual and automatic vacuum cleaners

In addition to those already mentioned, we could include any device that helps us or is used for small personal or household tasks.
