How to Write Reviews of Household Appliances

Whether your new stove or refrigerator has left you enthralled or disappointed, this guide will help you share your experiences for all to read.


  • Step 1: Give the details List the maker, model number, the specifications, what you paid for the appliance, and where you bought it in the first paragraph of your review.
  • Step 2: Discuss promises Discuss if the appliance met or exceeded the promises made either by the manufacturer or salesperson.
  • Step 3: Compare or stand alone Compare the appliance with a previous brand or version, or have the review stand alone if this is your first time using it.
  • TIP: Give yourself a little time to adjust to using the appliance and to explore all the options.
  • Step 4: Be brief Be brief -- around 200 to 500 words -- to keep your readers interested and engaged, and don't ramble. Make your point and move on quickly.
  • Step 5: End with recommendation End with your recommendation and don't be afraid to write a negative review if you are dissatisfied. Just explain why.
  • Step 6: Share your thoughts Share your thoughts on a website, start a blog, or contact a consumer magazine for writing opportunities so you can get paid.
  • FACT: CFCs, or chlorofluorocarbons, once used in refrigerators, were banned in 1995 after it was discovered the gas eroded the ozone layer.
