your life. But, appliances are a real investment because you
will have them for a long time. As a result, you should do
significant research to ensure that you get good value and good quality. They make life more efficient, and make your home look updated and more attractive. You may think that New York City is an impossible place in which to find and purchase cheap appliances. But, nothing could be further from the truth! Don't worry--I've done the work for you.
GREAT TIPS FOR BUYING
- Once you find the desired appliance, check out the quality at www.consumerreports.com. They do significant testing and will alert you about the quality of the appliance that you are considering.
- Gas appliances may be more expensive than electric models, but consider that they generally require less energy. Additionally, serious cook will tell you that gas cooks food more evenly, allows you greater control of heat, and produces better results.
- Many appliance stores will negotiate prices especially if you are buying several items. In addition, you can often negotiate warranty, guarantees and free delivery. Don’t be shy, they aren’t.
- A few dings and scratches can really bring down the price of a floor model. Be open minded.
- Save energy, time, and gas by comparing products through BizRate,com or Krillion.com, comparison sites that list brand-name products, general price ranges, and where to buy them, online and retail.
- There are three big holiday weekends during which to buy appliances, Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day. You’ll find slashed prices, attractive discounts, and often free delivery will be thrown in.
- When you’ve made your selection, Home Depot and Lowe's will match competitor prices.

Our salesperson was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about ALL leading brands and best prices around. As it turned out, Maytag was offering a great price and super rebate if you purchased all 3 appliances. I definitely shopped around (hey, look who is writing this!:>) and found that they gave the best price by far and threw in free delivery. I would recommend shopping around for what you want and then calling them for the best prices. New York Magazine rates Drimmers as "The best place to buy kitchen appliances."
