Buying a used range can be very good for your pocketbook. But there are some tips to keep in mind as you start your search.
Ranges like to break at the most inconvenient times - usually before a big family celebration or a holiday - when you are about to do a ton of baking or throw a big roast in the oven. Sometimes it can be hard to justify the cost of a new one in the event that yours is no longer repairable (or too expensive to do so). Before you take out a second mortgage to buy a new range, you might want to consider buying a used one. There is a risk of course, because if it breaks when you get it home, you likely won't be able to get your money back. But sometimes the right used range comes along and it's worth taking that risk. Here are some tips to help you find one that suits your needs - for considerably less money than a new one.
