From the kitchen to the bedroom, Walmart's vast selection of appliances offers countless ways to make your life easier.
When shopping for kitchen appliances, think about how you prepare and store food and how many people you usually cook for. For cooking appliances, look for models that feature even heat distribution and easy-to-use temperature controls, as well as automatic shut-off and auto-warm settings for safety and convenience. For dishwashers, consider factors like noise, specialty cycles and delayed starts. And consider getting small appliances such as a food processor and a microwave, which will help you prepare delicious food with minimal effort.
Vacuums come in many varieties, so choose one that's suited to the type of surface and mess you'll be cleaning. Upright vacuums provide the most suction on carpets, but canister vacuums are easier to maneuver, especially on stairs. You might also consider a handheld vacuum for small spills.
For heat, your main choices are a radiant heater, which transfers heat from a hot surface to a room, and a convection heater, which moves air currents circulating through the body of the heater and across its heating element in order to heat up the air. You can also choose between heaters that use electricity, oil, propane or natural gas. For air conditioning, options include window units, wall-mounted units, portable air conditioners and central air conditioners.
To ensure that you're getting an energy-efficient appliance, look for the ENERGY STAR label.
