It’s no secret that kitchen appliances can be quite on the pricey side. In fact, some of the items every kitchen needs are among the most expensive things in our houses.
Knowing this, it doesn’t come as a surprise that people are not always willing to pay full price for a reliable food processor, fridge, or another item. Instead, they hunt for discounts when these costs can plummet dramatically.
In this article, we’ll discuss some of the best places where you’re bound to find some generous discounts for kitchenware.
When in Doubt, Start With Amazon
Amazon is a true treasure trove of discounted items and coupons. If you can’t find it there, you can’t find it anywhere!
The sheer vastness of choice and the organization of the site can be quite intimidating for inexperienced online shoppers. However, you shouldn’t let that discourage you. From Lightning Deals to Clearance Sales, you’re bound to find a great bargain.
Amazon is especially generous toward its Prime members, who enjoy frequent special deals. However, even if you’re not a member, if you remain vigilant, you can make use of a free trial just in time to get that blender at a lower price for members only.
If you find nothing in the Daily Deals section, you can check out Warehouse Deals for products that other customers returned and even Amazon’s Outlet.
Furthermore, if you want to go even deeper, there are some hacks that allow you to explore some hidden discounts that not many customers will get to see before you.
Sites Dedicated to Special Offers, Coupons, and Discounts
These websites are another great option when it comes to shopping for kitchen equipment online, and they are plenty.
If you Google “kitchenware deals” or something similar, you’ll get a variety of options to choose from. You can stumble on amazing offers at VoucherCodes, get cashback on TopCashback, and find coupons and amazing offers on many similar sites.
You can also stack up more vouchers and coupons to shave a significant amount of money off your desired kitchen item.
Price trackers, such as Love Sales, can also be quite useful. These websites will notify you via email when a desired item has reached a price you’re comfortable with.
Last but not least, price comparison sites can help you get the best deal.
Big-Box Retailers and Department Stores
Big-box stores probably don’t come to mind first when you’re thinking about places where you can buy kitchen appliances for cheap. However, these stores are the kings of discounts and special offers. So your local Tesco is definitely worth checking out.
What’s more, the UK has seen a rise in discount retailers, such as Lidl and Aldi, which are also worth checking out. Sometimes, these stores can be somewhat far off, but you can always check the website before you hit the road or even order an item online if the store allows it.
You shouldn’t forget department stores either as they often hide true gems. You can find substantial John Lewis discounts, for example, which will save you tons of money.
Your Local Appliance Shop Might Be Worth Checking Out
You may have been avoiding your local independent appliance store because you believe they are pricey and have an underwhelming choice of items.
You could be right, but you could also turn out to be entirely wrong as these independent businesses often belong to the so-called “buying pools.” These allow them to get items at significantly reduced costs. This means you could get what you need for a lot cheaper than you would at a big-box store, for instance.
Another plus is that these stores often have professional installers who will install and service your appliances for you.
Check Out Outlets
If you’re not looking for the latest models (which you’ll rarely find at a reduced price anyway), you should visit an outlet near you.
There are numerous discount appliance centres and depotswhere you can find excellent low-priced new, as well as used and refurbished, products for your kitchen.
Your nearest outlet centres may be miles away, so you should visit these stores online first to see if they have what interests you.
A pro tip: If you want to get a true bargain, don’t shy away from used goods. If they didn’t work properly, they wouldn’t be at the store. This brings us to the next point.
Visit Websites That Sell Used Appliances
If you decide to browse websites dealing exclusively with second-hand appliances, you’ll be able to save up to 90% of the original price.
However, you should be careful when visiting these sites and make sure that they ensure proper buyer protection and don’t sell junk. Even if you get scammed, considering how little you’ll pay for your deep fryer, you probably won’t even feel sorry that you tried.
The truth is, there are plenty of tried and true websites out there (like this one), where you can shop at ease.
Consider Your Timing
Some things are worth a little patience. If you’re buying a new toaster, you probably won’t wait for a holiday season for that extra special discount. However, if you’re shopping for a fridge or a fancy espresso machine, you might just decide to wait for that Black Friday offer.
Holiday seasons aren’t the only times of the year when there are huge discounts for kitchen appliances. Generally speaking, retailers put these items up for sale when they want to get rid of the old and make space for new models.
January, September, and October are perhaps the prime months when it comes to shopping for appliances.
Be Patient and Shop Smart
As you can see, if you take a bit of time to create a smart shopping strategy, you don’t have to spend a small fortune on expensive kitchen equipment. Quite on the contrary — you can be cost-effective without compromising the quality of your kitchenware.
Good luck and happy shopping!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense.
