Appliance Repairs Versus Buying New
Kitchen Appliance repairs versus buying new often is solved by purchasing from a reputable company. When the machine starts out being quality then frequent repairs are not necessary. At one point even the best built machine begins to wear down.
Often the first reaction for most is ‘out with the old and in with the new’. We have become a ‘throw away society’ and need to take more practicable approaches to reducing waste.
My blender is over 25 years old and is still a faithful companion for my kitchen needs. Now that my husband and I have joined the Smoothie Revolution I use it every day. I noticed the other day that it was was leaking. My husband suggested to replace parts for it rather than discarding it . Though I love getting new appliances I have to admit that his point is valid. Even though I may purchase a new blender in the future and keep the old one as back up it makes since to replace parts rather than add to the growing pile of our recycling center. My husband said the motor was fine so replacing the seal and perhaps new blades was all that was necessary. Spending ten to twelve dollars is better that spending $30.00 to $199.00.
The first step to avoiding tossing the old and buying new is to research some companies with dependable products. Parts for my blender are still available from Hamilton Beach.
