Top of the range suppliers of affordable luxury appliances include Bosch, Frigidaire and Electrolux. Yahoo! and Amazon shopping sites reveal that Jenn-Air appliances generally fall near the top of this price range. Brands on the more expensive side of this line include Thermador and Dacor, whereas less expensive choices might be found through Maytag, GE or Samsung.
Starting in 2014 Jenn-Air offered a gas convection range for $1650, whereas Maytag sells a similar model for $1000 and GE carries another comparable range for just under $850. Meanwhile, a smaller, 24-inch range by Jenn-Air sold for $1,000 at the beginning of 2015, while a similar Samsung model cost just $600. Refrigerators and dishwashers follow the same trend. Meanwhile, for washers and dryers, Jenn-Air offers a front-load washer dryer combination that, in February of 2015, was selling for $3000, while Electrolux offered a similar appliance for just $2,300.
While the prices tell one story, it is important to note that reviews on Consumer Affairs show much less favorable reports from consumers of Jenn-Air products than for the many comparable brands. For a similar price, Frigidaire and Bosch appear to be more reliable brands.Learn more about Appliances
