How much does a pottery wheel cost?

Are you looking for a pottery wheel and don’t know what to expect in terms of price? Or are you just curious and want to know how expensive a pottery wheel actually is? Here you can find out what the price basically consists of and what advantages there are when you buy a pottery wheel from your local dealer.

How much does a pottery wheel cost?

It’s always hard to pin down a price, but of course it varies depending on condition, quality and functionality.

At the dealer you can usually get pottery wheels from € 400. In this price range, however, are mainly table models, which are not nearly as resilient as their larger relatives, the floor models. For this type of model, you can expect to pay upwards of €800. Nevertheless, the absolute front-runners are usually above the thousand mark in terms of price. This does not mean that “cheap” pottery wheels worse, but only that they are not as resilient and not as much can be expected than from the high-priced machines.

What am I actually paying for?

With local retailers, in addition to the operating costs, shipping costs, and manufacturer’s warranty, you’re also paying for the advice and quality of the product.

Especially if you’re buying your first pottery wheel, you’ll want as much information as possible from your dealer (or you’ve already done some research on the Internet and a few questions remain). There’s no doubt that advice on the wheel and customer service is free, but you still can’t always count on it. On Amazon, for example, you will never get such extensive advice as you will at your local dealer around the corner. Also the private seller of Willhaben will not normally tell you an hour about the pottery wheel and is also not always available when questions arise.

Where do I buy my pottery wheel?

Pottery wheels are offered on many different sites on the internet. From Amazon, to local retailers, to online marketplaces. The price also varies on the platforms. On Amazon, for example, you can also find children’s pottery wheels for less than € 30. Of course, these are far from comparable with an electric pottery wheel, but children can use them to create small workpieces out of clay.

On Ebay classifieds, Willhaben and Co. you can find all sorts of used pottery wheels and additional material. There, the price varies depending on the year of manufacture, condition and functionality. However, the manufacturer’s warranty is no longer included in the price.

If you want to buy a second-hand pottery wheel, here are 7 tips for buying used pottery wheels.

At local dealers you can get modern pottery wheels from various manufacturers, such as Shimpo, Rohde and HSL, to name just three of the big ones. Besides the mint condition and quality of the products, they are especially attractive because of the manufacturer’s warranty, which offers protection for the buyer. If spare parts or repairs are needed, you can contact the seller, so you don’t have to spend hours researching on the Internet to find the right part.

Conclusion

So how expensive is a pottery wheel really? Of course, the decision as to how much money should ultimately be spent is at your own discretion. Basically, you should only pay attention to the fact that the more you invest, the more you can expect from the machine.

Finally, I would like to emphasize that it is definitely advantageous to buy from local dealers, because here you can also use the free customer service and are thus top advised.
