Appliance revolves around a piece of equipment, commonly powered by electricity, used to perform a particular energy-driven function.

Examples of common appliances are refrigerators, clothes washers and dishwashers, conventional ranges/ovens and microwave ovens, humidifiers and dehumidifiers, toasters, radios, and televisions.

In modern computer terms, appliance refers to a device that performs a single, well -defined function and is simple to install and operate, for example, a NetCache appliance or NetApp filer.

In terms of household appliances it is worthy to note, that they are ordinarily self-contained with respect to their function. Thus, equipment such as central heating and air conditioning systems and water heaters, which are connected to distribution systems inherent to their purposes, are not considered appliances.
