To help make cooking, cleaning and cooling easier, Amana has launched its Life.Simplified(TM) campaign. As part of the campaign, the Amana website now features a "Help Me Choose" appliance-buying guide to help consumers select the appliances that best meet their needs. The hassle-free guide walks through the necessary considerations to make appliance shopping effortless in just three clicks, no matter if you're in the market for a new refrigerator, range, dishwasher or laundry pair.

"There's no reason why choosing an appliance should be a stressful occasion, or why you should need to be a technology expert just to do a load of laundry," said Carolyn Kelley, senior brand manager, Amana. "That's why we launched the Life.Simplified campaign - we want consumers to know Amana appliances will help make their everyday easier and not add stress to their already stressful world."

The brand offers appliances that embody Amana® Life.Simplified(TM), such as the Amana® Tandem(TM) front-load laundry pair with easy-to-use Touch and Go(TM) controls that make popping in a load of laundry as simple as pressing a button.

The brand has also launched a Life.Simplified(TM) Facebook sweepstakes and giveaway, offering consumers a chance to win a full appliance makeover, including a kitchen suite and laundry pair, as well as a travel voucher for a dream vacation. What could make life easier? In addition, one random winner will be chosen monthly throughout the sweepstakes, which ends Dec. 31, 2011, to receive a fun themed gift basket.
