Jenn-Air and Monogram are two well known brands of professional gas ranges. Jenn-Air is owned by Whirlpool Corporation and Monogram is owned by General Electric, both are recognized as the elite brand within each of their parent companies. Both are very different ranges.

Jenn-Air

Jenn-Air was an independent company primarily manufacturing downdrafts. They languished when purchased by Maytag in the late 1980s. New corporate parent, Whirlpool, invested 300 million dollars about 3 years ago in Jenn-Air specifically in cooking, more specifically in wall ovens and professional ranges. Their 30 inch pro is their best selling piece. This new range has high output burners with a max of 20,000 BTUs, a great clock/oven control as well as dual convection.

GE Monogram

Monogram is the highest end of the GE corporation and is primarily sold through their builder channel. Monogram has been around since the late 1980s. At first, the products were manufactured by DCS and Fisher Paykel. Their current products are manufactured in Louisville by GE. Their current specification has not really changed over the years.

Summary

  • Oven: GE is larger, but it does protrude into the kitchen for the added size. Jenn-Air has twin convection for more even baking than Monograms single fan. Jenn-Airs Auto Convection is also a big advantage automatically converting a regular recipe to convection without guesswork
  • Burners: The newer Jenn-Air is hotter with one 20,000 BTU and two 15,000 BTU. Monogram has only one high powered burner rated at 18,000 BTU.
  • Price/Rebates: They both have rebate programs. Jenn-Air will offer a $1200 dishwasher free with the purchase of a range. Monogram offers a $1,000 discount with the purchase of two other appliances.

Whirlpool's 300 million investment looks like it has paid off...at least in this comparison.

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.

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.
