CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 'Tis the season to be busy.  Last holiday season alone, Americans devoted countless hours to turkey angst, stemware de-spotting, pressed linen preparation, and strategic side dish juggling.  This year, Frigidaire wants to help busy Americans maximize their time so they can spend it on what matters most. 

For more than 90 years, Frigidaire's innovations have delivered appliances that can save time, which ultimately help people make the most of their day.  Frigidaire brings this idea to life via The Frigidaire Time Machine: a running, real-time virtual clock that calculates how much time Frigidaire appliances could save holiday hosts on their household holiday tasks.  Frigidaire will also take its time-saving fixation one step further by giving consumers the chance to win experiences that will allow them to truly enjoy their new-found time. 

Now through 2:00 p.m. ET on Dec. 31, consumers are encouraged to select the holiday tasks that demand a lot of their precious time at  When they do, they will be entered for a chance to win one of several daily prizes including gift certificates for spa experiences and movie tickets.  They will also be entered into a weekly drawing for a Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens.  Ultimately, one lucky grand prize winner will take home their very own set of "Time Machines" in the form of a full suite of Frigidaire appliances, including a Frigidaire Affinity Front Loader Washer, a Frigidaire Affinity Front Loader Dryer, a 28 Cu. Ft. Standard Depth French Door Frigidaire Refrigerator with Ice and Water Dispenser, a Frigidaire Gallery® OrbitClean™ Dishwasher, a Free Standing Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens, and a 30" Over the Range Microwave with Convection. 

Consumers can also share creative and funny holiday themed cards with their friends and family before and after entering the sweepstakes.

"Frigidaire understands that time is constantly at a premium for consumers, and that its value goes up exponentially during the busy holiday season," said John Weinstock, North American Chief Marketing Officer for Electrolux.  "We realize that being able to cook a 28-pound turkey and multiple side dishes at different temperatures simultaneously gives you more time to devote to the things you really love.   That's why we are committed to constantly creating efficient tools like our new Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens, which offer the capacity, flexibility and power that holiday hosts need to put a multi-dish feast on the table in no time." 

The entire Frigidaire appliance line is available nationwide at Lowes, Sears, Home Depot, Best Buy and independent appliance dealers.  For more information about Frigidaire products, please visit:
