I know those names but I dont have anything made by them.

LG is the fridge/freezer (Korean)
Amica is the DW and Oven...German but very young company. From 1990.
Braun is my hairdryer...but it's OLD. Germany company from 1921
Privileg is our Washing machine....Germany company, things made for a shop called Quelle.
Bauknecht is our dryer. A German comany from 1919
