Appliance software is a concept whereby the program, extension, etc. is used with little or no interest by the user as to how things work inside the package.

This type of user has a higher concern/priority on getting a job completed quickly & efficiently.

It is similar to dealing with a toaster, microwave, telephone, etc.
