Showroom manager Randall Iwaishi offers the following tips:

DO YOUR RESEARCH

Consumer reviews are often helpful in making the best choice when it comes to appliances. Consumer Reports, reviewed.com, and manufacturer’s websites have reviews you can read. When reading reviews, look for trends, as consistent bad reviews could be a warning sign.

SIZE MATTERS

New models are often larger than the units that are being replaced. Also, showrooms tend to be deceiving, as appliances look smaller than they really are. Get the measuring tape out. When measuring the space, always measure the narrowest part and include any baseboard or moldings. Lastly, be sure to measure the doorways or stairways in your home to make sure you can get your appliance to its final destination.

LOOKS OR FUNCTIONALITY?

Pick a model that fits your lifestyle. Decide if it is more important for the appliance to look good or cook good. If you do enjoy cooking, pick appliances that will grow with you as your cooking skills improve.

IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT

Many dealers will match the lowest price offered by the competition. If the price still seems high, see if you can negotiate a deal by buying more than one appliance at a time. When all else fails, ask for free delivery and installation or extended warranty.

DID YOU KNOW?

Exhaust fans are critical to keeping a kitchen and a house clean. They are not required by code, so many people ignore them. But the average household produces a gallon of grease annually, so having a hood capture that grease keeps the surrounding area much cleaner. It is better if the hood can vent to the outside, but a re-circulating hood is much better than nothing.
