ALDI Special Buys - Quality Issues

I remember buying a pair of joggers a while ago didn’t seem to bad to wear but didn’t last to long in the sole commonly lots of footwear don’t last long.

I used to get the Aldi special buys, kettles, fryers and other electrical goods but no more. All ended up in the bin due to breaking down due to poor quality. Never bothered to return them. Lately I bought a Pressure Washer-thought I had a bargain-used it once or twice and really good. Brought it out recently-started smoking with a small electrical shock. The warranty was good so I got a refund which is cool. (I bought a Gernie the other day and I was surprised how much better the quality was compared to the Aldi brand-chalk and cheese really). The only things that seem to be of good quality are their coffee machines. Other than that, I’m an Aldi fan.

Seems most footwear at any price has the same problem. My top brand shoes have the same problem after less than 12 months having been worn for only a quarter of that time. When they were made in Australia I got 3 to 4 years from the same brand.
I now buy the absolute cheapest and hope they last 6 months - some do not!

Do you mean the capsule machine they sell.

I would never buy any electrical items from Aldi or there special buys as to me they are rubbish.Why bother wasting your time.Buy something that is better quality and enjoy the rewards from it

Modify the last line to ‘last 3 months’ !! two pairs in 5 months and only being worn maybe 40 times. My Redback boots (the Tasmanian pair are now about 8 years old and still good but only get worn twice a week during winter)!

A cogent comment.

Ha Ha!
I was replying to passerbye123 “Do you mean the capsule machine they sell.”
I replied ‘Yes’.

Thought I got it right.
