5 Things To Consider Before Buying Kitchen Appliances Online - Proline Range Hoods

Online shopping is becoming increasingly popular as companies are prioritizing customer convenience and quick, user-friendly purchases. As online e-commerce giants such as Amazon, Alibaba, and eBay excel in online sales, many more companies are following suit. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, e-commerce sales comprised nearly 10 percent of U.S. retail sales in the third quarter of 2018 (July 1 – September 30). Further, Statista reports that two billion people are expected to buy goods or services online by 2020. In 2014, this number was only 1.34 billion.

With the fast-growing e-commerce environment, it’s time for you to venture online to purchase your kitchen appliances. This article will give you five tips to help you look for the best kitchen appliances for your kitchen.

When buying kitchen appliances online, what factors should I consider before making a final decision?

Keep in mind the quality of products and materials used, warranty, customer reviews, shipping costs, and available appliance size options for your living space when you look to make an online purchase.

1) Consider the quality of the product and materials.

When investing in kitchen appliances, one of the most important factors to consider is the quality of materials. Make sure to thoroughly read all of the product details, since a picture can be deceiving. If you are not familiar with the product materials listed, a simple Google search will bring back all kinds of information on what you need. Many popular kitchen appliances are manufactured as stainless steel, a durable and modern material. Many of Proline's range hoods come in professional-grade 430 or 304 stainless steel, making them last longer and look shinier. Be sure to clean your products regularly to maximize their efficiency and durability.

Make sure to carefully look at the product specifications and any other information listed with the products. Consider the real value that you would be getting out of each appliance. Most importantly, consider whether or not you feel you would be happy with the kitchen appliance you are thinking of purchasing. When trying to find the best deal, make sure not to overlook quality and value. Ask yourself if you would rather buy one top-quality appliance (like a range hood, for example) that will last decades or one that is less durable but you will have to purchase over and over again throughout the years.

2) Look for a fair product warranty.

Most of us use our kitchen appliances every day. Due to this normal wear and excessive use, your home’s appliances will become damaged over time. Whether that means replacing parts or other minor technical difficulties, it's important to find out if your kitchen appliances are covered by a warranty.

Ask yourself these questions before considering an appliance purchase online:

  • Does this particular online appliance company have a warranty?
  • What is covered under the warranty if my kitchen appliance is damaged?
  • How many years would my kitchen appliances be covered under this warranty? How does this compare to other appliance company warranties?
  • What costs will I incur with this warranty?

3) Pay attention to recent customer reviews.

Product descriptions have value, but an honest customer review can say much more!

If you are having any questions, look online for reviews. Simply Google search "(online appliance company name) _____ reviews." Find a selection of real customer reviews from different sources all over the web. These reviews will allow you to make an informed decision on the best kitchen appliance for you.

4) Look for additional shipping, handling and tax costs (if any).

Buying kitchen appliances online can be a convenient and efficient way to find the best quality product. However, additional shipping, handling, and tax costs aren't as nice. It’s important to ask yourself how one company’s additional costs compare. Consider where the appliance will be shipped from and the price of the shipping to your home. Not every online appliance company comes with additional shipping costs. Here at Proline Range Hoods, we offer free shipping on all 30" and 36" range hood models.

5) Look for appliance size options.

You may have found your dream kitchen appliance but is it in stock in the size that you need for your kitchen space? If not, we recommend that you call the support team and ask for an estimated wait time. The good news is that if a product is usually out of stock that means that demand is high; likely, you won’t have to wait long.

We recommend that you take your time throughout your online buying process to find the best kitchen appliances for you.

We hope these five tips helped you purchase the best kitchen appliances online for your home. Good luck with your online shopping!
