Appliances Made to BREAK! What Should You Buy Built to LAST?

I’ve been asked hundreds of times “What appliance should I buy if I want it to last longer than what I already have?” Well, here you go. I decided to discuss this if you’d like to take 20 minutes to get some ideas.

DISCLAIMER: Everyone has different experiences with different brands and models. This list isn’t exhaustive, nor perfect. I tried to list models that, in my OPINION are going to last longer than others, while not being unfathomably expensive like machines you’d only find at a laundromat that require hardmounts or really oddball requirements.

Models mentioned or referenced in the video that I’d buy if I needed new appliances. I am having trouble linking to most Appliance Connection products, so here are links through AJ Madison:

P.S. Cleaning your dryer vent and refrigerator condenser will increase your appliance’s life span considerably! Consider buying a cleaning kit, too:
