Prices of Small Appliances
Small appliances are designed to make our life a little bit easier. The question is, how much should you spend when you’re buying a new toaster, kettle, iron or blender? Always make sure you check out the specifications and customer reviews before you choose your small appliances’ budgets.
There’s quite a dramatic variation in price for toasters.
If you’re looking for a basic model that’s cheap and cheerful, you can look to pay around £5, but if you’re after a design with lots of functions, you could pay up to £250.
A decent toaster with standard features can cost around £20-£40, but it may be worth increasing your budget slightly for a better quality design.
If you’re looking for a bargain – especially if you want a matching kettle – then a good time to shop is in the Christmas sales. Or, why not take advantage of the university deals in September?
The prices of kettles vary from around £10-£100.
With higher end models, you’ll be paying more for the brand and the fancy design. However, it’s worth checking the specifications, as some models will have extra features.
If you’re not too bothered about looks, then you can pick up a great model for £30 or less.
When it comes to irons, you’ll pay more for a higher steam output.
So, when you’re deciding on the budget, it may be worth spending a little extra for a more powerful iron.
Along with other small appliances, there are models available for under £10, but it’s likely they won’t deliver the best results. It is possible to pick up an effective model for £30 and under, but you can pay up to £300 for a top-of-the-range steam generator iron.
Again, blenders have a large price range.
Higher priced blenders state that they’re best for tackling harder foods like nuts and grains. However, a more expensive model won’t necessarily guarantee top-quality results. You’ll find that most blenders tend to cost around £30-£150, and spending anything in between should give you a decent model that’s built to last.
Stand mixers are one of the most expensive appliances.
Prices range between £100 and £500. A model at the higher end of the price range will usually come with a wider range of attachments, a larger capacity, and a sturdier design.
