One of the easiest and fastest ways to improve your lifestyle and your home's value is to upgrade your major appliances including your refrigerator, range, oven, dish washer, clothes washer and clothes dryer or by adding outdoor appliances including a built-in barbecue or ice maker or refrigerator.  Here is where we will tell you about deals on major appliances and we will give you tips for your appliances.


Update July 17, 2018  The Appliance Outlet is in new digs at 19356 Business Center Drive, Northridge, 91324. They're open Monday through Friday from 8:30-AM until 5-PM, and on Saturday from 10-AM to 3-PM. They are closed Sunday. Their phone number hasn't changed. Call them at 818-349-4091. The new location is only minutes from their former Chatsworth location. I'll be telling you more about the new location soon.


Update December 20, 2017  There's only one Appliance Outlet and it's on Mason Avenue in Chatsworth and new home and kitchen appliances for 2018 have now arrived. You'll find a big selection of famous brands and everything is discounted and everything comes with a warranty. Some items do not have a factory box, and then there are those "scratch and dent gems" that will save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Watch our TV show report below.


Update March 22, 2017  There are always new arrivals at The Appliance Outlet on Mason Avenue in Chatsworth. I stopped in there and checked on some of the merchandise that just arrived and you have to visit them at least once a week to keep up to date on their new arrivals. Or sign up for their email alerts.

On my visit I saw new American Ranges, built in the USA, that are 48-inches with 25,000 BTUs that are discounted by about $1,000 because they don't have shipping boxes. Otherwise they are new and first quality. There are also 35-inch ranges available, also without shipping boxes. I also saw a new American Range double over with French doors on top, new in plastic, but it's discounted because there is no shipping box. See our TV show report below and on this page you will find more information about their location and store hours.


Update May 7, 2015  Just in time for your summer fun, The Appliance Outlet in Chatsworth now carries factory refurbished and new, discounted Lynx outdoor grills for your outdoor kitchen. These Lynx grills can be put on a cart or built-in to an outdoor kitchen. You will save 40% or more and the factory refurbished grills come with a warranty. The Appliance Outlet has only one location and that is in Chatsworth so beware of other companies using the same or a similar name. Call them at 818-349-4091 and watch our TV show report below.


Update February 12, 2015  The Appliance Outlet in Chatsworth is a true outlet for high end, quality appliances and you will find the major brands here.  Some of the appliances were used on TV shows but most of the appliances are brand new, and were never used but could not be sold in regular retail stores because their shipping boxes were damaged.  And you might find some high-end appliances with minor scratches and dents and as you know I love the values you get with scratch and dent appliances because when the scratch or dent goes against a wall or is covered with cabinetry no one will see it and you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

The Appliance Outlet in Chatsworth has all of the popular kitchen appliances including ranges and microwaves and refrigerators and dishwashers.  You will also find appliances and supplies for the restaurant business.  And you will love the savings -- discounts of 40% or even more.  And there are warranties on the major appliances.

Of course these great deals come and go.  So, if you are shopping around for a major appliance you should stop in and see their new arrivals or call them and you should definitely sign up for their email newsletter that lists new arrivals each week.  You can sign up for the newsletter on their website -- and see the web address below.  Our newest Best Buys TV Show report showing their newest arrivals in February 2015 is below.  They also get specialty appliances that are designed for professional kitchens.  This is the appliance discounter you always dreamed of finding.

Below is an earlier report.

Below is our original report about the Appliance Outlet in Chatsworth.  Remember there are new arrivals all the time and you should sign up for their emails announcing new arrivals.


Update November 5, 2013  The Appliance Outlet in Chatsworth now has some high end microwave ovens that are deeply discounted.  These microwave ovens have special features.  For example, you will find microwaves that are also convection ovens -- so you get two ovens in one.  And there are microwave ovens that are also range-top units so they will save space in your kitchen.  There are always new, discounted refrigerators and ranges and ovens arriving some with scratches and dents and some with damaged shipping containers but otherwise are in perfect condition.  Watch our TV show report below.


Update January 11, 2013  Below are our TV show reports about the new deals for 2013 at the Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center in Calabasas and in Studio City.  These appliances are really unique items that will give your home a "wow factor" and will turn your home into a conversation piece.  You might even call these "wonder appliances" for how they work.  Universal now has the TOTO Neo Toilet that features a motion-activated pop-up toilet lid and toilet seat.  You can program the lid and seat for a man or a woman, and a few minutes after business is conducted the seat and lid will automatically close.  This special toilet has a heated toilet seat-- or course.  And it has a built-in bidet with heated water, and there is a built in dryer for the bidet.

Also new are modern free-standing tubs with free standing tub fillers.  This is a modern design of the traditional free-standing tub with big claw feet.  These modern designs look like built-ins with clean, modern lines and special features such as sprays that create bubbles, hand held shower wands, and sprays.

You will also be amazed by the new Crystall Sink that comes with a glass basin that has no walls.  A waterfall drops water into your hands and the design of the glass basin without walls contains the water.  It is fascinating to look at.

Probably the most dramatic new item is something called an "induction cook top" which heats the surface directly below cooking utensils.  When I saw it I was able to run my hand around a tea kettle that was boiling and spewing steam but the surround cook top was cool to the touch.  Families with small children might appreciate the safety aspect of this cook top.  There is also energy savings because the water in the tea kettle came to a full boil very quickly.  It is amazing technology that you have to see -- and you can see it and experience it at the store where it is fully functional.
