Balay is owned by the Bosch and Siemens Group, and many of the group products are produced in the same factories.

There are technological differences between Bosch and Balay, but they are relatively small, particularly on the budget end models. Many of the parts are interchangeable between the two brands.

I have Bosch, Balay, AEG, Siemens, Miele and Bauknecht in our properties and all have performed well, so economically speaking the Balay wins hands down as they were by far the cheaper products with very good results, performance wise the Bauknecht do take the prize and the Miele appliances just keep going and going.



Hi I have a Balay Dishwasher which I paid the extra insurance for 5 years. Unfortunately the door brake cord went so we phoned the extra insurance cover company and they told us the diswasher was covered for everything but the problem I had. That was last year and a month ago the other side went, so I was wondering if you know anywhere spares can be bought.

Thanking you in advance.

Looking currently at Radiopopular and Wortens to purchase. Any other suggestions?

THANKS. Smile



Euronics shops seem to be franchise and often can get a way better deal than you will at Radiopopular etc, we bargained between two different euronics shops when we built our house, eventually getting 30% on everything we bought
