Just as every household is different, so are our appliance requirements. The staff at Harvey Norman can help you find the best match for your lifestyle

The perfect match


Updating kitchen appliances is not something most of us do very often, so it can be surprising to see just how far technology has progressed in the past few years.

The choice of products can also be a little overwhelming, which is why it pays to talk to a knowledgeable consultant. Harvey Norman stores not only carry a wide range of kitchen appliances, they also have experienced consultants on hand to help you work out what's best for your needs and lifestyle.

Whiteware product manager Tane Poulson says the staff is the company's best asset.

"Our consultants have an extensive product knowledge," he says. "The company has regular training sessions to make sure everyone is up to speed with the latest technologies – and how they will benefit our customers."

Poulson says Harvey Norman sources its appliance range from around the world to ensure every option is covered. International brands represented include Ariston, Electrolux, GE, Simpson, Miele, Samsung, Westinghouse, LG, De'Longhi, Bosch, Mitsubishi, AEG and Ilve.


To help you with your selection, all the appliances are shown in different kitchen settings, so you can appreciate not only how the appliances look, but also how they function in a kitchen environment. In addition, many stores provide demonstrations to illustrate the benefits of the different products.

"Seeing the appliances actually working makes it easy to compare," says Poulson. "Visiting a Harvey Norman store is also a good way to get ideas if you're planning a new kitchen."

Harvey Norman has 19 retail stores throughout New Zealand. For the address of your nearest store, check out the Yellow Pages, or contact Harvey Norman, freephone 0800 422 423.
