Aldi’s Kitchen Appliance Brand
In case you weren’t aware most of Aldi’s products are their own store brands, but they don’t just label everything “Aldi Brand”. Instead they have created a bunch of different brands for different product categories. For many of Aldi‘s kitchen appliances and gadgets the brand will be Ambiano.
These products are actually made by multiple different manufacturers and then branded as Ambiano for Aldi. This basically how it works for the majority of the products that Aldi carries. If it is not a brand name you recognize it is probably one of Aldi’s brands than you can only find from Aldi. This is one of the ways Aldi keeps the prices lower than other stores.
Ambiano: Cooking On a Budget
Aldi’s Ambiano brand appliances are generally sold at a nice discount compared to the name brand appliances and are often even cheaper than the off brands you would find on Amazon. The benefit of buying an Ambiano appliance from Aldi compared to many of these random brands on Amazon is you generally get a decent warranty and return policy backed by Aldi.
It is tough to compare the major brand appliances to Ambiano without having the same basic item from both and using them both equally for years to test their durability. Overall the quality of small kitchen appliances, even those from major brands, seems to have gone down over time and you generally don’t expect them to last forever. Based on that I would compare the features of an Ambiano appliance to a major brand and then compare the price and warranty. If the features you care about are pretty even, the warranty is close, and the price is better with the Ambiano I would probably give the Ambiano a try.
Are Aldi’s appliances worth it? Generally they are going to be priced very competitively and the quality will be about the same as other store brands or the random brands you find on amazon but you will have Aldi’s warranty and return policy backing it up.

I purchased the blue set. There are two compartments on the outside for AAA batteries which equals 6 batteries for each. Once I loaded one, filled it with salt and turned it upside down I got nothing. On the inside of the battery well is a place where batteries are supposed to fit, four of them, but there is no size that will work. It will hold three AA batteries but there are prongs for 4 batteries and AAA batteries are too small for the compartment. I purchased these a few weeks ago and just tried to install them for the first time. I pray that I can find the receipt to return them.
Love this wafflemaker
I was given the double rotating waffle make for Christmas and it is a tremendous success! Not only can I make 2 waffles at once but it only takes 3 minutes to cook them! I do NOT use cooking spray and they absolutely don’t stick! Admittedly, I have only had it 6 months but I hope it lasts a long, long time!
This has worked great and I use it all the time. I got it on clearance and decided it was time to try pressure cooking. I use it more than my crockpot now! It was a life saver during a power outage as it didnt tax our generator while cooking!
It’s terrible. Weak AF. 10/10 does not uncork a bottle
Love this set!
Bought as a gift for myself and love them! Plus the new set has LED lights at the bottom to see the portion being grinded.
First pressure cooker--love it!
I got this at a great price a few years ago on one of my first trips to our new Aldi. Not real big on ‘convenience’ appliances, but this one was a welcome addition to my kitchen. If I could get another one for the same price I paid for this one, I’d do it in a heartbeat!
ONE PROBLEM–looking for a REPLACEMENT POT…and so far, I’m coming up empty…I NEED IT DESPERATELY, but don’t see where I can get one, unless I try to match it up with antother brand of the same size (and hope it works).
Review of the Ambiano double rotating Belgian waffle maker
Used it for the first time today. Very happy with the results. Had to leave a little longer to get browned and crisper. Will make a great Christmas gift.
Ambiano salt and pepper grinders
I bought these for my parents first $15. We previously invested in a $35 set from Amazon. This set is by far better quality and grinds the pepper to a consistent size while the Amazon purchase leaves us with big chunks of pepper. And the Ambiano set has a light. It was a great purchase!
The ambiano pressure cooker is an excellent choice to cook fast and super easy while you do the rest of the things at home. It preserves the good nutrients and taste of the food and when it comes to any kind of meat it makes it real soft
Ambiano Electric S&P Mills--what a great surprise find at Aldi's! Where can I get more?
The Ambiano Electric Salt and Pepper Mill Set was a fabulous <$20 bargain from Aldi's in Dec. I absolutely love, love, love them! I was very surprised to find the quality to be so good, especially for the price. You can adjust the grind however you like it and they even have a little light. The batteries last a long time even though they each take six AAA batteries.
