Our First 24 Hours In The Bed & Beko Home


Last month a very exciting email landed in my inbox and we were recruited to become Beko's live-in family at their first ever 'Bed & Beko' home in Berlin during the week of IFA. The kitchen was kitted out with Beko's new range of innovative appliances which we would be required to test-run over the week. Of course, this was an opportunity we couldn't turn down as we love Beko products and have used many over the years. We had a lovely stay at the Bed & Beko which I will be talking about more in depth in another post and we also had a couple of days to explore the city which I will talk about later next week. 

Here is a little video (best viewed in HD) of our first 24 hours in the Bed & Beko home so you can see what we got up to including a recording at the start which was shown at the IFA conference in Berlin last week. We had a lot of fun filming!


We have really enjoyed staying at the Bed & Beko home and using their new range of appliances. Beko is the 'Official Partner of the Everyday'. They understand the needs of the everyday family and create innovative products in response to those needs whether you're a busy working family or spend a lot of time at home. I'm sure like many of you, your lives are consumed by the chores of daily life. You know what I'm talking about - school runs, changing nappies, grocery shops... I could go on! Being a grown up isn't always easy. You're expected to be a super mum, wife, friend - it's a challenge. 

It is exactly for these reasons that I decided to take up Beko's offer to come and trial their first ever Bed & Beko home in Berlin. We put Beko's products to the test over the week and were really impressed. They always seem to find nifty ways to make life that little bit easier. Beko understand that families want to purchase appliances which are suitable for all budgets, that many families are short for time so create time-saving appliances and some live in smaller homes than others so solve their problems by creating appliances to acomodate this. All of the appliances mentioned below help face everyday challenges in a modern home. 



Do you have fussy eaters like me? Then this latest split & cook oven means that you can cook two different meals in the same oven at the same time making everyday life easier with specially developed temperature and timing controls! We were super impressed with this as both Amelia and Harry can be fussy eaters at the best of times. The split cook function meant that we could cook two different meals at the same time or like we did one evening: cook a savoury dish in the top section and then some chocolate brownies for dessert in the bottom. It's like having two ovens in the space of one and solves the issue of fussy eaters or apposing dishes if you need to meet special dietary requirements or have a vegetarian in the family. Another great thing about the oven is the fact that the when cooking two different meals they don't contaminant the other meal which is cooking. We really enjoyed using it over the week and since coming home and cooking meals I have really noticed how much I miss using it!



There's nothing more time consuming that washing clothes when you have small children, I feel like all I do everyday is wash Amelia's and Harrys clothes, dry them and iron them. However with Beko's new Wash & Wear washer dryer you can now wash and dry your clothes freshly within an hour! It can wash and dry 1kg of laundry in just 60 minutes which is not only great for time saving but it also saves money on your utility bills by using less water consumption and improved energy efficiency. We made great use of Beko's washer dryer during our stay as the kids were out playing in the garden every day so it was great to be able to wash and dry their clothes and go home with clean clothes! 



We really enjoyed using the IndyFlex+ hob during our stay. I've never used an induction hob before but I was surprised to learn how easy it was to use. The IndyFlex+ hob gives you total flexibility with your cooking and an expandable cooking surface which can be tailored to every need. 


Beko Everfresh+™refrigerator

We all know how hard it is to find the time to cook healthy, wholesome meals that meet the needs of the entire family. Especially if you have little ones in school or yourself or your partner work. I for one am guilty of buying fresh food and letting it go off before getting round to cooking with it. In fact I waste far too much food than we should which is shocking. The new everfresh technology in this Beko fridge is definitely something that I need as it keeps fruit, veg and meat fresh up to 3 times longer than other fridges. This is perfect if you have fussy eaters who insist on having different meals most nights of the week!


Beko IonGuard™ dishwasher

After having numerous family meals during the week we loved being able to use this world's first chemical-free odour removal dishwasher which mean't we could fit it up after a big meal and as a mum what I love the most about it is that it uses IonGuard technology which doesn't use any chemicals at all and keeps all odours at bay. 

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bed & Beko and putting Beko's new appliances through their paces.

Thanks Beko for delivering on your promise to be the official partner of the every day

Keep an eye out for our next post on our stay at the Bed & Beko home!

  24. What a great opportunity, Kerry. I love Beko products; they are very affordable and still last for a long time. When I bought my house in 1999 I was really short in cash and I the buy the cheapest appliances I could get so I bought Beko. Most of my friends told me that they were too cheap to last and that I should really spend more in order to get better quality.
    They were wrong. Although they will need replacing in the very near future, they have served me well for 17 years. My next ones will be Beko as well.
