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 appliance package. It’s a much smarter way for you to buy appliances.
Yale Framingham Kitchen Packages
At the same time, this is your kitchen. Buy what you like and what you will use. Just be mindful of the different handle styles and shades of stainless of the different brands.
Samsung has some of the best packages with good promotions at all levels. However, you have to be willing to wait 6-12 weeks. Samsung is the number one volume brand, but their stock cannot keep up with the demand.
Be prepared to wait.
Anyway, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Frigidaire and Jenn-Air have some interesting products to consider as well.
We have over 20 kitchen appliance packages this month, these are the most popular and best deals.

$11,548 Gas / $12,598 - Final price after $3,198 in rebates
This package combines a Thermador pro range with Bosch counter depth refrigerator (Thermador style handles) along with a Thermador dishwasher (made by Bosch) and a Yale hood.
Jenn-Air and Thermador are pretty similar packages. Thermador has a slightly more powerful top with a better simmer whereas Jenn-Air has a clock, timer, convection conversion, self-cleaning and a better twin convection oven.
Miele Pro Package
$11,999 Gas / $13,699 Dual Fuel - Final price after $247 in rebates
Miele, along with Jenn-Air, has twin convection and self-cleaning. Their max burner output is 19,000 BTU. It is a very cleanable range because the racks can stay in a self-cleaning oven and the grates are dishwasher safe.
Their dishwasher is the best with three racks and the only real dry cycle in the industry. Air is diverted to the outside of the dishwasher. The cooler outside air attracts the hotter, insider steamy air and dissipated.
The refrigerator is integrated meaning is flush with the cabinets for a much more linear look. It is 3 times more expensive than the Thermador or Jenn-Air counter depth, French-door refrigerators.
Sub-Zero/Wolf Pro Package
$14,848 Gas / $16,268 Duel Fuel - Final price after $1,420 in rebates
Sub-Zero is the best refrigerator in the industry with two compressors, so the moist and cold air do not transfer. A vacuum seal, internal air scrubber, and pure water filter are a few of the reasons why Sub-Zero keeps food, fresher for a longer period of time.
The Wolf range has 15,000 BTU and single convection along with a powerful 600 CFM range hood. Package includes an Asko dishwasher with all stainless interior and solid graphite racks.
Which is the Best Choice?
Well, this list runs the gamut. If you are starting out, Whirlpool, and even Samsung are decent options. Samsung has the cool factor, but Frigidaire is more reliable and available.
Frigidaire Gallery, KitchenAid, and Bosch have a counter depth refrigerator for an inexpensive price. Jenn-Air has every feature under $5,000.
Their Pro is competitive with self cleaning, twin convection and intuitive cooking system with twin convection.
In terms of resale and overall aesthetic, Sub-Zero and Miele are good choices.
There is not one package for everyone (it would be easier if there were). Just assess your needs and buy what you like.
