by Jeff Tarascio

Samsung vs. GE Profile Gas Slide-In Ranges (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Steve Sheinkopf

Samsung values product design. You may already have one of their phones. Perhaps, they learned this from years of battling with Apple. You should certainly consider their products. Samsung has targeted appliances as their major growth driver for 2016.

On the other side of the spectrum is GE. Their Profile line, although successful, has not changed in almost a decade. Now, they are being acquired by Haier of China.

So, let's compare these two different companies and their slide-in ranges (I will even tell you when to buy them).

Best Double Drawer French Door Refrigerators (Reviews/Ratings)

by Brett Lucero

Whirlpool introduced the first French door refrigerator in the 1980's, but discontinued them. In the 90's, the choice became side by side or top freezer. Then bottom refrigeration became popular, then French door refirgerators and now French door double drawers refrigerators.

Double drawers are a bit harder to buy then a regular French door, because the inside and extra drawer differs between manufacturers. It can be confusing. We look at the four most popular and then compare.

Electrolux vs. GE Compact Laundry (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Chris Tavares

Compact washers and dryers are very popular in the Boston market; and many other urban areas worldwide. If your current laundry space is smaller than (27’’ wide, 33’’ deep, and 36’’ tall) you need to look at compact laundry.

The quality of the machines are excellent, although they have less capacity and are more expensive.

This niche is dominated by the European manufacturers as it is the standard in Europe. Bosch, Miele, Asko, and Electrolux are the most popular brands in this market. These machines can be stacked or placed side-by-side.

The Largest Front Load Washers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Jessica Petrino

We updated this article June 21st because LG and Samsung have just introduced some incredibly large washers. Read on to see where they rank in size in the models displayed at Yale. However, there are other considerations and implications when buying these machines.

So you want the largest washer you can buy? Of course you do, we all have busy lives and why would we want to spend it waiting for your laundry to be done. Larger capacity means fewer loads. It's hard to tell the sizes by looking at the brands own websites because there are several types of measurement.

We have assembled a list of the largest machines using the Department of Energy guidelines from the EnergyStar website. It's the only consistent measurement in the industry.

Jenn-Air vs GE Induction Cooktops (Reviews/Ratings)

by Paul Groux

Jenn-Air (Whirlpool) and GE are the two biggest appliance brands in the US. They are, however, very different in how they market their products.


General Electric is one of the oldest appliance manufactures in this country. The company was founded in 1907. With production plants all around the world GE has been viewed as a global company diverse in many different products. From nuclear power plants to light bulbs to financial companies GE is a major player in the appliance world as well as the financial world. GE presently is building 16 factories in the United States to create more than 16,000 jobs here in this country. GE is especially strong with builders. To be transparent, we do not sell any GE products at Yale.


The Jenn-Air Company was founded by Louis J Jenn in Indianapolis Indiana in 1947. In the early years Jenn-Air focused on the production of industrial fans. In 1961 Jenn-air integrated the industrial fan into a range. The company has since expanded its line of appliances to offer a complete kitchen package. Jenn-Air is part of the Whirlpool family and is viewed as their premium brand. Unlike GE, Jenn-Air is consumer, not builder driven.

We No Longer Sell GE Appliances

by Steve Sheinkopf

First, I have a ton of respect for GE. Seriously. If it wasn't for a man named Jobs, we would still be talking about Jack Welch being the greatest corporate leader of all time. I actually read all his books. They are pioneers and state of the art in logistics, engines, green energy and corporate finance.
