You need a new washing machine and you see a posting for a used one on an online community forum. It’s in your price range and the current owner says it works well. Should you buy it?
Or maybe you just started meal planning and could use a chest freezer for food storage. Does the freezer need to be new or would a used one suffice?
Regardless of which appliances you’re looking to buy, you may be wondering if a used version could be affordable, reliable, and energy-efficient. We checked with the experts to see which appliances are OK to buy used—and in which cases you should always get something new.
As you research potential new or used appliances, remember to take each offering on a case-by-case basis. A used dishwasher from a neighborhood appliance store could be as good as new while a Craigslist find may be a bit more questionable. Use your good judgment and ask the seller lots of questions to know for sure whether the used appliance is dependable or a lemon. Hopefully, you’ll find a quality appliance that will suit both your home and budget.
