These are the best brands for appliances, electronics, health, beauty and more as chosen by Australian consumers.
Need some inspiration for your Christmas shopping this year?
Finder has launched the inaugural Finder Retail Awards, highlighting the top brands across 69 product categories as awarded by Australian consumers. Awards categories include home appliances, travel, electronics, health, beauty, home and garden, outdoor appliances and products for babies and kids.
To help you get ahead on your holiday shopping, Finder has also teamed up with online retailers including eBay and Kogan to offer exclusive discounts of up to 15% off a range of products from the winning brands.
Who are the winners?
Several brands took home multiple awards this year. Australian home appliance brand Breville came out on top in four categories: capsule coffee machines, coffee grinders and roasters, electric blankets and sandwich makers. Samsung also took home three awards as the best brand for TVs, microwaves and top-mount fridges.
Other brands that won more than one category include Fisher & Paykel for clothes dryers and top-loading washing machines, Philips for beard trimmers and multi-cookers and KitchenAid for toasters and food mixers. International brands Miele, De'Longhi and Husqvarna also came out on top with numerous awards.
How were the winners chosen?
Finder partnered with Roy Morgan, the leading market research company in Australia to survey more than 4,000 Australians. They were asked about the purchases they made in the past two years and to rate the brands they own.
They were also asked to give a rating out of five stars across several factors that were tailored for each category. Factors included value for money, ease of use, safety and performance. Consumers were also asked to give an overall score for the brand and whether or not they would recommend the brand to others.
