Tesco stores sell standard supermarket produce and other items that help make your daily and home life easier.
But does Tesco also sell white goods, such as microwaves, dishwashers, freezers, and coffee machines? Here’s what I could find.
Does Tesco Sell Appliances In 2021?
Unfortunately, Tesco stores do not sell any large electrical appliances, including dishwashers, or fridge freezers, either in-store or online as of 2021. However, customers can buy coffee machines, microwaves, toasters, kettles, air fryers, slow cookers, and more at most Tesco locations.
Are you wondering why Tesco doesn’t sell most white goods and where else you might be able to buy them from? Read on to find out everything you need to know!
Does Tesco Sell Other Appliances?
Yes! Tesco does sell a wide range of everyday appliances, including toasters, microwaves, air fryers, kettles, irons, sandwich toasters, food processors, slow cookers, hand mixers, blenders, coffee machines, and French Press.
Typically, all of these kitchen appliances can be purchased in-store. However, availability and stock can vary depending on each store location.
Alternatively, all of these items can be purchased online at Tesco.com.
Why Don’t Tesco Sell White Goods?
Tesco only tends to stock electrical appliances that can easily be picked up, put into a shopping trolley, and taken to the checkout by customers.
These include hairdryers, irons, massagers, and small vacuum cleaners, which are all brown goods.
Tesco did at one time attempt to branch out into selling white goods such as dishwashers and freezers, too.
However, since these appliances are not easy to store or transport, they are no longer sold in any Tesco shops, including the larger Tesco Extra shops.
Does Tesco Sell Coffee Machines?
While you cannot purchase other white goods in any of Tesco’s shops or online at tesco.com, you can buy coffee machines. As well as a range of cafetieres, Tesco also sells small automatic and digital coffee makers. These include:
- Nescafe’s Dolce Gusto Mini Me Automatic Coffee Machine
- Russell Hobbs Digital Coffee Maker
- Tassimo Suny Black Coffee Machine
Because these are easily displayed on shelves and can be handled by most customers without employee assistance, these coffee machines are available for purchase in Tesco’s physical shops as well as on their website.
You can also buy the specialist coffee pods, capsules, and filter coffees for these machines at Tesco as well.
How Much Do Coffee Machines Cost In Tesco?
The price you pay (unless you price match it) for a coffee machine in Tesco will depend primarily on the make and model of the appliance you buy.
Tesco is also likely to change the coffee machines they stock, meaning that the prices will change, too. However, all of the coffee machines they currently stock are priced at less than £60.
You might be able to save money on coffee machines and other products you buy when you use your Tesco Clubcard. None of the coffee machines currently on offer on the Tesco website are available at a lower Clubcard Price, though.
Where Can I Buy White Goods In The UK?
If you need to purchase white goods in the UK, there are plenty of dedicated white goods retailers for you to shop at.
Unlike Tesco, the below stores have the space in-store to display larger appliances such as microwaves, dishwashers, washing machines, fridges, and freezers. As well as staff on-hand to help advise on and move these items. These stores include:
- John Lewis

You cannot buy large white goods from any Tesco shops or on their website. They simply do not have the capacity or capabilities to stock and sell them. However, you can buy smaller, more easily handled white goods such as coffee machines from Tesco.
If you would like to buy white goods, including washers and microwaves, you will have to shop elsewhere. There are plenty of UK shops that specialise in selling large appliances, including Curry’s and Homebase.
