If you have the option, it might be wise to buy your house appliances in Lebanon. The prices are usually a bit lower than in US and Europe. There are several big department stores as well as home appliance stores where you can find whatever you need. If you are in it for a bargain there are certain areas in the bigger cities that will sell goods of a bit lower quality, but much cheaper. If you're in Beirut, try your luck at the smaller stores around Dora and Ouzaei.
