Scenario: The refrigerator is on its last legs. You want to make sure that you get a quality product for a decent price.
It’s very easy to compare prices online. You can read reviews online, but can you trust them? Many times, they’re written by people who are paid to post them.
So … where do you go for accurate information? Try Consumer Reports, free at the library, both in print and online.
Consumer Reports provides ratings and reviews, recommendations and buying advice for thousands of products and services. It’s been doing so since 1936.
They provide ratings and reviews of products and buying guides. The buying guides walk you through what you should consider when making your decision. It helps walk you through all the options and decide which ones you need, and which ones just sound good.
It can help you narrow down whether you want a top freezer, bottom freezer, side-by-side or French door refrigerator. Do you want a refrigerated drawer, adjustable shelving, door-in-door storage, air purifiers, split shelves or one of the many other options?
CR provides guides on how to take care of your appliances, warnings about unsafe products, alerts about recalls and more.
We keep copies of printed Consumer Reports at the main library for our patrons, or you can use the library’s online access to Consumer Reports and use our user name and password.
