I’m a shopper and a patient one. I don’t mind looking around every corner of a store if I’m searching for something. But since I have bad memory, I created an Instagram account called @chuvafinds to help me remember where I saw what item.
Created in March 2015, the account now has 12,700 organic followers.
Yesterday @chuvafinds (that’s me) went to SM Appliance in search of a new stove for the maids. I usually go to SM Megamall, but because there was a major Iglesia Ni Cristo gathering in Pasig, so I went to SM Makati instead. Luckily I encountered no traffic!
The SM Appliance store is on the 4th level of SM Makati.
I love how spacious and well-lighted it is.
Before anything else I made sure to find a stove that fits the dimensions required in the maid’s kitchen and found one by La Germania.
Amazing how cheap these things are, and they last for years! This is only our third stove change for the maids since 2003.
I decided to look around and check what else they had. I found a special hot/cold water dispenser by GE.
Special because it has an extra cooling compartment underneath where you can store other drinks and chocolate stashes. Nobody has to know….
Last year I was invited to a wedding where the bride requested a toaster oven in the registry. Being brand and design conscious, I found it impossible to find a decent toaster oven in other appliance stores. SM Appliance has good ones!
Check these out: Breville Smart Oven, Php 16,900
Black & Decker, Php 6,995
I am obsessed with corndogs, so I gave in and bought this waffle dog maker. The only one I could find was by Imarflex. But how could you complain at Php 995?
I have a studio apartment that has no cooking facility, but just in case I’ll need one, I could always buy this induction cooker by Philips, only Php 4,795
This Philips table grill is great for cooking steaks, salmon, bacon, veggies, or even an egg on the flat side. Affordable and fun family cooking for only Php 6,195
Amazing how prices of air fryers have been dropping. This one by Philips, which we use at home, is now Php 13,995.
Here’s a newer model. I am very interested in the shape of this Philips Air Fryer. Cheaper too.
My sons have been bugging me to upgrade our TV, so this Samsung 65″ curved TV is on the wishlist. More affordable if you use SM Appliance’s O% interest payment scheme.
I found this mini red Whirlpool chiller so adorable and retro chic! It costs Php 18,999
I’m not familiar with the EZY brand, but I really like the design of this mini freezer/chiller combination.
Perfect for small apartments.
Oh, and I bought the smallest, cheapest TV in the store for my driver’s room. Amazing how affordable these 24″ flat screens are.
All done. It was great to go on a Tuesday afternoon. No traffic coming from Pasig, and not much people in the store, so I got good, very fast service. This was my bill for three items: the TV, the corndog maker, and the stove.
Because my total was more than Php 10,000, they gave me a rewards card to celebrate 25 years of SM Appliance.
You can win perks from Php 500, Php 1000, or Php 2500 shopping credits, free buffet at Vikings, or an overnight staycation at Taal Vista Park Inn, depending on how much you spend.
Thank you for the great service all the way to my car. 🙂
