What to watch out for when shopping

Capitalism has brought us many changes. One of them is the competitive environment, which has resulted in a large number of products of the same type but of very different quality being available on the market. Therefore, we need to be very cautious and learn some rules and recommendations.

Did you know? An unexpected morning comes along and you realize that the electricity in your apartment has gone out and the breaker for your washing machine has tripped. You unplug the washing machine and call a repairman, but are told it is not worth repairing. So you visit an appliance store, where the clerks are very polite, but they usually don\’t give you the information you need. That is, especially about the quality of the finished product. So-called white goods are now mostly compared by power consumption. This is because whether the energy grade of a washing machine is A+ or A++, the difference in these costs is often negligible. When buying washing machines, refrigerators, dishwashers, and cookers, it is important to pay attention to the materials they are made of. [When buying a cooker, it is important to check the design of the baking tray. This will show corrosion and deformation in the near future. Ovens with only a thin coat of spray paint also suffer from corrosion. For refrigerators, it is advisable to check all plastics, the sound of the compressor, the mounting of the doors, etc. Experts recommend taking someone with a little expertise as an advisor. Even an ordinary electrician can often give valuable advice.

While buying poor quality appliances may “only” risk them not working a few months after the warranty expires, poor quality food can be harmful to your health in the long run. Therefore, it is important to focus on the following checks:
– Shelf life
– Chemical content
– Bio-substitute content
Shelf life allows food to be consumed after the expiration date, but the expiration date is actually the date by which food should not be consumed. Many foods contain chemical preservatives, which are intended to extend the shelf life of foods and allow them to be transported long distances. Doctors recommend that people avoid buying synthetic preservatives and focus only on foods that use natural preservatives instead of chemicals. Unfortunately, many foods are often processed with a variety of substitutes that, while not harmful to health, certainly degrade their quality. Today, it is common to add palm oil and fat to cheese, soy to meat products, and gelatin to yogurt. For this reason, experts recommend that one should not panic and always read the ingredients label when purchasing food products.
