Yale Appliance Framingham Showroom Samsung Kitchen Package Display

Affordable does not mean cheap or junk. Samsung, LG, and GE are all respected manufacturers.

You can buy convection ranges, counter depth refrigerators and slide-in ranges under $5,000.

So I will show you the best 5 packages, reliability numbers based on 34,687 service calls and then a section of various appliance upgrades by product type.

At the end of this article, you will have a definite sense of the brand and products.

One Word Of Caution...

First, we sell the least amount of brands than any other store on the internet.

We have plenty of brands, but not every single one.

We service what we sell and can only afford to sell what is reliable.

Secondly, these are the most popular packages by history. You can create your own if you like a particular product or brand.

Best Affordable Kitchen Appliance Packages

Samsung Top Mount Package

Electric - $1,919 | Gas - $2,089

690312738_Samsung_Top_Mount_-_Electric_

This is a great package if you are a builder or just starting out. You have an 18 cubic foot top mount, free standing range, base dishwasher and over the range microwave.

The refrigerator can fit in a 30-inch cabinet, so it's perfect for smaller kitchens without being tiny and nonfunctional.

Samsung Side-by-Side Package

Electric -$2,419 | Gas - $2,4192 after rebates

1588101628_Samsung_Side_by_Side_-_Electric_

Samsung products are more stylish than any other competitive brand at this price level.

This package features a 25 cubic foot side by side refrigerator, convection (fan forced heat for more even cooking) range, an integrated dishwasher, and over-the-range microwave.

Samsung French Door Counter Depth/Slide-In Package

Electric - $3,635 | Gas - $4,035

854282172_Samsung_Slide-In_and_Counter_Depth_-_Gas

If you want to improve the overall look of your kitchen affordably, then consider a slide-in stove and French door refrigerator.  

You don’t see the sides of the refrigerator, because it lines up with the cabinets for a much better look.

Slide-in ranges allow you to see your backsplash without the back guard.

This package has both along with an over-the-range microwave and upgraded dishwasher.

LG Counter Depth/Slide-in Range Package

Gas - $3,829

250652502_LG_Counter_Depth_

Very similar to Samsung. LG has pure convection (blown in from the rear) on their gas ranges.  The refrigerator is counter depth as well

GE Profile Full Depth Package 

Electric - $4,139 | Gas - $4,489

1088200402_GE-Full-Depth-Electric

How about a big refrigerator. This one is 28 cubic feet. GE is known for cooking and refrigeration, but there were also first on over the range microwaves as well.

We just started with GE after a 6-year hiatus

Appliance Upgrades and What They Really Mean

Refrigerators

Top Mount, Side-By-Side, French Door, Counter Depth

Top Mount: You see top mounts on the less expensive packages with freezer on the top and refrigerator on the bottom.

Yale-Appliance-Showroom-Top-Mount-Display

Yale Appliance Boston Showroom Top Mount Refrigerators Display

There is nothing wrong with a top mount, BTW, except you do stoop for fruits and veggies. They are also available only in the 18 and 21 cubic foot styles.

Side-By-Side: You have organized storage in a side-by-side, but less lateral storage for trays and platters.

Yale-Appliance-Showroom-Side-by-Side-Display

Yale Appliance Boston Showroom Side-by-Side Refrigerators Display

French Door: Side-by-Side top with a pull out drawer. It is the most popular because you do have lateral storage.

Yale-Appliance-Showroom-French-Door-Display-1

Yale Appliance Boston Showroom French Door Refrigerators Display

Counter Depth: These refrigerators do not protrude past the cabinet, so you do not see the textured side. You do pay more for less cubic feet, but it looks better in your kitchen.

Ranges

Slide-In, Freestanding, Inductionc43a4b7fcee6c0838b2343dca664823b

Slide-In vs. Freestanding: Freestanding has backguard. Slide-ins do not, so you can see your backsplashes without looking at range controls (in my opinion, slide-ins and counter depths are the least expensive way to improve the look of your kitchen without remodeling).

Convection Fans: Fan-forced heat for a more even temperature.

Convection-Fans

Twin Convection

Induction Ranges (electric): Magnetic heat for speed to boil and simmer. Induction is also safer and requires less venting.

Yale-Appliance-Showroom-Induction-Range-Display-1

Yale Appliance Boston Showroom Induction Ranges Display

Microwaves

Convection/Microwave: Ability to cook like an oven, microwave or both at one time.

Dishwashers

Quiet: Any level under 44 DB is quiet, and 42 would be virtually noiseless.

3rd racks: A place for silverware over the cups.

Miele-3rd-Rack-2

 

Integrated: Controls on top

Samsung-Dishwasher-Integrated-Controls

Concentrated Sprays: Samsung and GE have more concentrated sprays to power out tough sprays in their better dishwashers.

Should You Buy an Inexpensive Kitchen Package?

Definitely.

You can buy decent features like counter depth refrigerators and slide-in ranges without spending more than $3829

It's a good idea if you are on a budget. With the real estate market on fire in Boston, builders can save a ton of money and still buy decent looking products

You should start here before you spend more. We have further upgrades on our article, the Best Stainless Kitchen Appliance Packages, if you would like more options.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

Steve Sheinkopf

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
