We have approximately 1,000 appliances on display including 9 working kitchens. At a certain level, there is a similarity to it all. The two rows of stainless dishwashers look similar, as do the ranges, refrigerators, etc. Every unique product is copied over time.

However, there are niche products that are almost too expensive to copy by the mainstream brands like Whirlpool, GE or Electrolux. Thus the inspiration for this article. Want your kitchen to look completely different? Look at one of these...

The Five Coolest Appliances In Boston

American Range AROFFE-230 French Door Wall Oven - A French door wall oven? It actually makes sense. Side swing ovens allow easier access to food, so you don't have to lift a heavy turkey over the door. I like the commercial style.

AGA Total Control 30" Electric Oven - AGA has always been popular due to its bold styling and natural convection performance. However, the old AGA needed a proprietary vent and was difficult to install. The new Total Control does not need a vent and has electronic controls. Read More about AGA Total Control with video.

Note: We currently do not have AGA on display in our showrooms.

Thermador CIT36XKB All Induction Cooktop - As I wrote yesterday, the whole surface is a burner, and this unit is the future of cooking. Watch the video and read the article, the unit is pretty compelling.

Yale European Hood RH00830AS - I am totally biased, but this is a European line of hoods with 600 CFM at a decent price of $599. The Yale Hood is also the most reliable product on the market. Read The Most Reliable /Least Serviced Appliances.

adorne Switches by Legrand - OK, its not technically an appliance, but these switches are clean, reasonably priced and designed well. You can also have multiple switching capability in one receptacle.

Read a Yale Guide covering many aspects of appliances and home improvement. Over 9,000 people have had their decisions simplified by reading a Yale Guide.

Some of my favs:


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.
