Why read magazines when you’re shopping for appliances? Because they’re packed with more value than you realize.

PROS

  • Instant inspiration: Home design magazines publish tons of beautiful kitchen images.
  • Stories that explain why homeowners chose the appliances you see in the pics. (Do their cooking rituals resemble yours?)
  • Photo captions that provide hard-working details.
  • Ads promoting manufacturers’ cool new products, features, and finishes.

CONS

  • Magazines take months to go from concept to newsstand. You may miss out on the latest product introductions.
  • Editors who provide positive reviews, but shy away from printing negative ones for fear of alienating advertisers.

Tip

Get the best of both worlds—the singular focus of a manufacturer’s showroom coupled with the comparison-shopping opportunities offered by a retail showroom—by visiting the Architect & Designers Building in Midtown Manhattan or Chicago’s historic Merchandise Mart.

"Ease of cleaning was a big issue for me. When I visited the dealer’s showroom, I could actually see ranges in person. The one I chose has continuous grates I can lift off so I can wipe and clean the whole surface. That really appealed to me."
