    Default Fridge and Stove Brands

    I tend to see many brands of each that are unfamiliar to me.

    Can anyone express an opinion or review on say "Mabe", "Nedoka" or others they recommend and where is the best place to find deals in SD?

    Thx.

    We have a Nedoka fridge and six burner Nedoka stove. We bought them because my mother in law has had one for ten years without a problem. They seem to withstand the power flunctuations and outages very well. There are different levels of both in terms of luxury...etc. We have no complaints about ours. They were also a little cheaper price wise than the GE....ETC. Plaza Lama has a good variety.

    the brand you know about will be expensive. they are, however, available: LG, whirlpool, samsung and so on.
    mabe is very decent, i think. candy is also worth looking at, albeit expensive (stoves). there is a brand called sanky too, i kid you not. fairly solid too.

    check plaza lama. always pay cash, because they will give you a discount. bring a pickup or a truck or a jeep to take the stuff yourself if you want super fast delivery

    Mabe is very popular in fridges. Reasonably priced. Attractive. See them everywhere. Only time will tell if they're a worthwhile investment.

    Good Morning, it has been my experience that Plaza Lama sells rebuilt products that look new and does not back any warranty.

    Nedoca and Mabe are both manufactured here in the DR. Mine were new when bought.

    first, the Koreans ran off GE and Whirlpool, with brands like LG and Samsung. now the Chinese have started making inroads into the electrodomestics market, with all manner of odd brand names. Sanky is the odd man out. that one is made in Puerto Plata. Chinese brands are all attaining higher standards, as they learn the game, mostly by back engineering. one example is in the headphone market. 10 years ago, if you wanted a decent headphone, it would cost an arm and a leg. now the chinese simply buy a unit of one of these well known brands, and they copy it down to the letter, with minimal cosmetic changes. now, guys who spent 250 dollars on a headphone like an AKG702 are horrified to know that they can now buy a 50 dollar Chinese phone that sounds as good as, or better than, their high dollar version.

    Nedoca (Neveras Dominicanas, C x A) earned its stripes in the DR 40 and 50 years ago. Started as an import substitution company, they imported some parts and manufactured and assembled other parts here. The things worked!! For years they were the standard that others were judged by. I had one, other family members had one and they all worked.

    Mabe is a brand that makes stoves and fridges. They seem to do well but not like Nedoca. I have a Mabe stove, and I have replaced most of the top. but it keeps on working and the oven is pretty accurate.

    I brought in my fridge from Florida, it was a "take out" at an apartment complex and in great condition. So far, three year and counting (knock knock)....
