Every year there is a new products appliance show at Foxwoods. The show mirrors the economy, which matches the amount of past R&D into creating new products.

So, in other words, there wasn't much new or exciting. However, there were a few decent pieces.

Following are the best new appliances, available in 1-6 months.(Please forgive the bad pics)

GE Induction Slide-In: I really liked this stove, because induction is a better, more efficient cooking technology. The slide-in category is underserved. Electrolux is the only induction right now, and the GE is $500 cheaper with the new two oven design.

GE Cafe Wall Oven, Slide-In and Convection Microwave: The Cafe has been GE's best introduction in the last 25 years (hard to believe I have been around that long) with powerful burners and professional styling. The gas range is now a double oven. The wall oven and convection microwave round out this successful line.

Bertazzoni Wall Oven: I like the iPod-like font and controls, as well as the stylish look. It is pricey however, and will compete against some very good products.

Samsung Double Drawer Interactive Refrigerator: Years ago, we tried to sell a LG fully interactive refrigerator. It now sits in our warehouse as a spare refrigerator. Although it is more than 50% cheaper than the original LG, I was skeptical about this Samsung. It is cool with links to Epicurious, recipes and a monitor which alerts when food is low. HOWEVER, unlike the LG,  the monitor is detachable so you now can go to the market with your digital shopping list.

Frigidaire Twin Oven Range: With Frigidaire, value is never a question. This two oven range will sell for much less than any similar competitive offerings.

Electrolux Dishwasher: You live in a nice city apartment and have an 18 inch dishwasher. You can buy a $450 Frigidaire or a $1100 Bosch. The Electrolux is in the middle at $769 with a stainless steel interior.

We write a New Products newsletter once a month and rate the products from 1-5 stars. It is a good resource, if you are planning a renovation. Click here for a sample.


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.

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.
