Buying Appliances

B. Amish


So, anyone out there have reccomendations on buying appliances. I'm in the market for a complete kitchen set along with washer and dryer. The two brands we've looked at are Maytag and Frigidare for the kitchen and LG for the washer/dryer. Both brands in stainless steel, except for washer and dryer. My wife wants a french door fridge, I'd rather go with a side by side because of price.

Also, should we go with local retailer or Menards?

Any help appreciated.

Have you looked at Appliance Smart. You can get good deals on some scratch and dent items. And if a stove is dented on the side and it's in between counters, who really cares. You can look around at local stores see if you can get a better deal. If you go to the big box stores you can get the no interest financing however.

We looked at Appliance Smart and found that they had special "packages" that included dishwasher, fridge, microwave and stove/oven. If you bought them as a set the savings were great compared to buying individually.

We wanted the GE Duet Sport washer & dryer and their prices on those were comparable to others.

In the end, we ended up buying from Home Depot. The manufacturers had big incentives and we got no interest, no payments for 1 year from HD. Another big factor was shipping as these were going to the cabin and HD gave us free shipping from the location up there. We would have taken two trips with the trailer to get all the Appliance Smart stuff up there.

A really nice store is Warner's Stellian - Worth a look too.

    • yea that place is awesome!!!   been years since I was there...  maybe a road trip and stop at Bongards too!!!  
    • We actually hardly buy any of the candy, but they have so much other good stuff like the Pies, apple bread, canned and jar pickled stuff, hot sauces etc. 😋
    • I drive by that candy barn all the time its crazy how busy it always is. Ive lived not 5 miles from it for 49 years. Been there once.
    • I'm game to try anything but yeah, I'm not into a lot of fruit or sweety meats.  Plus we made our one trip a year down to the Big yellow candy store already this year. 😋
    • 🙄yea you lost me when you mentioned honey!!!!!! and honestly i'm not a fan of all those "extra"ingredients in my meats.....especially that high temp cheese......yucky!!!!   plantenbergs has all kinds of that type of stuff.......i pass, only get plain sausage and brats.   iffin i was still on the union payroll i would take ya up on that as i travelled through belle plaine on my way back from siouxfalls now and then!!!!! now that i'm on a srick budget......thats a long way to go fer a weinie!!!!!🤣
    • Take a trip down to Belle Plaine. I'll show you some good hot dogs.   Just made Minnesota style summer sausage (blueberries wild rice and honey) for thew first time today.     
    • i've lived in Richmond and now cold spring all my life. my brother ordered a half of beef from this place called Homegrown meats , had never heard of it. know why now, when i picked it up it was established in 2020.  its just south of browns lake at the intersection of 22 and cty rd 43.  nice little place.   he called both Plantenbergs and breagelmans in Richmond........they are 6 months out. Breagelmans actually referred my brother to this place.  he said it was cheaper also!!!!!   i'll be taking some venny trimmings to Mcdonalds in 2 weeks for summer sausage and sticks!!!!!   plantenbergs will get the rest for bologna and hot dogs!!!!! you cant eat other bologna or weiners once you've had theirs!  mcdonalds SS and sticks are also topof the line as far as i'm concerned!
    • Which one?  I've been trying them all around the cloud.  Just had Elk burgers from McDonald's Clear lake last week and Bison tonight.  
    • Burgers from a new butcher shop.👍 good flavor 
    • The big pogo stick front shocks took a little getting used too.
