Electrical appliances can often be a pricey purchase.
However, they are also among the cheapest.
The cheapest ones are sold for about $3,000 a pop, according to a report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
The other cheapest are the cheaper ones, which usually range between $1,000 and $2,000.
“We think it’s important to keep in mind that in Australia, the cost of an electrical appliance can be more than what you spend on a typical home,” said Craig Sayer, CEO of the ACCC.
“In some circumstances, it’s worth it to spend on an electrical appliances because you don’t need to purchase more expensive appliances,” he said.
For instance, you can save up to $300 off the price of a gas grill if you buy an electric version.
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission also advises consumers to consider the “economic benefit” of buying an electric appliance.
It suggests you buy the electric version of an appliance if you: Are looking to save on your electricity bill, or you’re considering switching to an electric generator for your home.
