Buying Guides

Should I enquire where my kitchen appliances made?

 

I am often asked about any problems with parts or service availability when I tell people that the appliances they are buying  are made in Italy/Europe. More importantly as  most “brands” in Australia don’t actually make their own appliances in Australia, we need to be aware of the origin of the product.

Many consumers falsely believe that the renowned European Name on their oven or dishwasher  is made in a superior European Factory. In many cases most companies have been purchasing their dishwashers from China for years and then rebadge them under the European Design name. More and more Kitchen products are coming out of Asia, including  range hoods , ovens - even induction cooktops.

What is interesting is that many major companies in Italy and France are now moving their production to Turkey. With Turkey close to becoming   part of the EU, Turkish products will be able to be sold as “European” made. We all question Chinese made products and they have been making them for such a long   time…would the Turkish products be up to superior quality we would expect from Europe?
