The 5 Best Affordable Luxury Appliance Brands (Reviews/Ratings)

frigidaire kitchen package featureLike with many other commodities appliance technology is constantly improving. Years ago, you had to spend big bucks to get the innovative features. Today, most appliance brands produce a warming drawer and an induction cooking product, and almost every oven has convection and self-cleaning. For gas ranges, every range has at least one power burner equivalent to an expensive professional range.

For many families, making the decision to purchase a new kitchen is an enormous one. It requires both a financial and time commitment. Fortunately, affordable luxury brands produce compelling products with cutting edge features at a more affordable price. What once was a $5,000-$7,000 dollar refrigerator is now a $3,500-$7,000 appliance package of stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator.

Following are the 5 best affordable luxury brands for people who still want good looking, yet functional appliances at a decent price.

The 5 Best Affordable Luxury Appliance Brands

5. KitchenAid

A well recognized brand in the appliance industry and is one of the Whirlpool Corporation’s premium brands. I still like this brand, but KitchenAid has been unfocused for the last 10 years. They still have great counter depth refrigerators and dishwashers, but need innovation in the cooking segment.

4. Electrolux

Electrolux is a new brand in the US, yet is the number 1 brand around the world. They are very strong in cooking with innovative, easy to use cooking modes and have good induction offerings as well. Their achilles is dishwashers and their past issues with refrigerator reliability. They also need more models at lower prices.

2. Bosch

Perhaps the original affordable luxury brand. They were the first to understand style and also quiet, which has enabled them to sell tons of dishwashers. Now they need to understand how to manufacture a French door counter depth refrigerator.

Their newest series, Bosch Benchmark, will improve their cooking products significantly.

1. Jenn-Air

Jenn-Air was an early pioneer of convection and cooking. Whirlpool recently invested 300 million dollars into the brand. Their pro range is compelling, especially with their free dishwasher promotion. It's actually cheaper than every slide-in range when factoring in the promotion.

Their slide-in package at $5,000 includes a slide-in range with convection and warming drawer. You also have a convection microwave, so you have two ovens and a warming drawer for cooking. Also included is an integrated dishwasher and counter depth French door refrigerator.
