So, you are buying a full suite of appliances for your kitchen. It is not easy researching each unit, but there may be a better way.
Consider buying the brand. This strategy works because all your appliances will match. Rebates also increase when you buy a whole kitchen package. It’s a much better deal.
The question is...which brand? Manufacturer rebates change constantly and we update our packages monthly. This month is different as new KitchenAid products have more aggressive rebates. Samsung has some interesting packages along with Jenn-Air, Bosch, Frigidaire and Maytag.
We have around 50 packages this month, these are the most popular and best deals.
Best Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliance Packages by Manufacturer
Package Pricing updated for October 2015
Frigidaire Basic Stainless Steel Package
This package includes a 18 cu. ft. top mount refrigerator, electric or gas range, stainless steel dishwasher, and an over-the-range microwave. Frigidaire is a great builder or starter home package. It has a coordinated look, and Frigidaire is a very reliable brand.
Frigidaire Upgraded Stainless Steel Package
This upgraded package features a 21 cu. ft. refrigerator, which is a good size for a family of five people, and still fits within a standard 30” cabinet. It also has a better, more featured dishwasher.
Maytag Basic Stainless Steel Kitchen Package
This package includes a 19 cu. ft. top mount refrigerator, convection range, over-the-range microwave, and stainless interior dishwasher.
The difference between this package and the Frigidaire above, is that Maytag offers a convection oven, a better stainless steel dishwasher, and a larger microwave. Maytag also has a limited 10 year warranty.
Samsung Basic Stainless Steel Kitchen Package
This Samsung starter package has a 26 cu. ft french door refrigerator, convection range, an over-the-range microwave, and integrated dishwasher. The appeal is the large refrigerator for under $3,000.
Maytag Upgraded Stainless Steel Kitchen Package
This is the step up from the basic Maytag package above. It offers a 22 cu. ft. bottom mount refrigerator; the bottom freezer allows easier access to refrigeration, a quieter dishwasher with more cycles, a convection range with a warming drawer; warming drawers can keep food warm up to 3 hours, which is a good feature for working families.
Bosch Basic Stainless Steel Kitchen Package
This package includes a counter depth side by side refrigerator, a five burner range with convection, an over-the-range microwave, and their well known quiet dishwasher. This is a great starter package for the price.
$3,499 Gas - This package offers up to $1,000 in rebates
KitchenAid Basic Stainless Steel Package
This package includes a 25 cu. ft. regular depth french door refrigerator, a five burner range with convection, an over-the-range microwave, and iconic dishwasher. I like the new KitchenAid styling. It is cleaner and more sophisticated.
Electrolux Stainless Steel Kitchen Package
This package features a 26 cu. ft. side by side refrigerator, the range has convection and a warming drawer, the dishwasher has integrated controls, and a convection microwave.
This is a actually great package, because the convection microwave can cook like a convection oven. If you set the combination microwave and convection, you can cook in almost half the time without the rubbery microwave taste. Electrolux also has a promotion of buy two appliances and get one free (which makes this package a great deal).
KitchenAid Upgraded Kitchen Package
The refrigerator and microwave is the same as the basic package above. The differences are; a dishwasher with an integrated control panel, and a double oven range, it’s a great feature for people who like to bake.
KitchenAid High End Kitchen Package
This is the high end KitchenAid package with a counter depth french door refrigerator, and a slide-in range. Counter depth refrigerators and slide-in ranges are considered high end because of it’s seamless, built in look. A decorator’s favorite.
Jenn-Air Counter Depth/Slide-In Kitchen Package
This is our best selling package, mostly because it has really decent aesthetics including a slide-in range and counter depth refrigerator. A slide-in has no backguard, so you can see your backsplash.
It also offers a convection over the range microwave, so you can cook as a microwave, convection or both. You will have two convection ovens as well as an additional warming drawer in the range itself.
The dishwasher is integrated with controls on the top. I really like this package. Jenn-Air is more of a built-in package whereas Electrolux is freestanding. (Read The Differences Between Slide-In and Freestanding Ranges)
$5,299 Electric - This package offers up to $700 in rebates.
Jenn-Air Pro-Style Induction Package
I like this Jenn-Air package. Their induction range (fast, magnetic heat) is powerful and includes bridge elements for odd shaped dishes. Their range has the easiest, most intuitive controls in the industry.
$7,299 Induction - This package offers $1,299 in instant rebates plus $350 in manufacturer mail-in rebates.
Bosch and Thermador Professional Stainless Kitchen Suite
Thermador & Bosch are known for their professional style kitchens that offer a very stylish European design with a simple touch of a commercial look.
The following package includes a pro-style built-in refrigerator with a bottom freezer, a powerful professional range with 6 sealed burners, a great stainless steel dishwasher, and a powerful professional style canopy hood.
$8,299 Gas - This package has up to $1,339 in rebates.
Samsung Chef Collection Kitchen Package
It does not have much in the way of rebates, but this is really a full featured package. The refrigerator is four doors with dual compressors, the temperature gauge is on the outside etched in blue, also ha has the SodaStream integration. an induction or 5 burner high output range, the pocket handle dishwasher and over the range microwave.
Which Is the Best Choice?
Well, this list runs the gamut. If you are starting out, Frigidaire, Maytag and even Samsung are decent options. From there it can be confusing, and really depends on what certain features you like.
Bosch has a great overall package at $3,499 and with a side by side refrigerator, but you may need a bigger refrigerator like a french door style.
The Electrolux has great cooking features and modern styling, but it is a regular depth, side by side refrigerator. KitchenAid looks good with both a slide-in range and a counter depth refrigerator.
There is not one package for everyone (it would be easier if there were). Just assess your needs and buy what you like. View full list of packages here.
