Are Target small appliances worth the money?
If you’re on a budget, then Target might be an option for you. While you may find these appliances for even cheaper prices elsewhere, Target typically provides a good middle ground as far as appliances go. All the models mentioned above have pretty standard features alongside some modern designs, so you’re not compromising on the aesthetics. However, with most appliances, you get what you pay for, so don’t expect the most extravagant features or power.
It would be wise to compare with other brands to find exactly what you’re looking for to ensure you’re not left disappointed with the results.
