Should you buy used appliances?
SAN ANTONIO – If pandemic-related shortages have made it challenging to buy the new appliance you want, or you just want to save money, you may be considering buying secondhand. Instead, they suggest trying a local, reputable repair shop or checking out used appliance stores early and often. You can save 50% or more, even if the appliance has never been used. CR says your best bets for buying used are washers, dryers, ranges and refrigerators. CR’s reliability surveys of thousands of members found that LG, GE and Kenmore all earned a good or higher reliability rating for their fridges, ranges, washers and dryers.
