Best Electrolux vs Bosch vs JennAir Kitchen Appliance Packages

July 10th, 2013 | 2 min. read

By Steve Sheinkopf

Electrolux, Jenn-Air and Bosch are all giant multi-national companies who seem to gravitate to the affordable luxury segment of the market. That niche would be under Sub-Zero and Thermador, but over GE and Whirlpool.

Affordable luxury is the best selling portion of the appliance industry. It is for two reasons. First, people want some better features and the marketability of a better brand name. Rebates, however, are the main reason. With rebates of 15-30%, affordable luxury brands do not cost that much more than the more basic products or brands (provided you time it right).

Bosch's rebates just expired on the 7th. Jenn-Air will expire on the 15th, but Electrolux just started with rebates.

Best Electrolux, Bosch and Jenn-Air Packages

Bosch 500 Series - $3699 Electric or $3699 Gas

bosch 300 series package 113

Let's break them all down by product.

  • Dishwasher: Bosch is a dishwasher company, and they set the bar for features and value. Jenn-Air is a really good option with an integrated (controls on top) appearance. It is also manufactured by KitchenAid. Electrolux has decent specs, but is not known for dishwashers.
  • Stove: Jenn-Air offers a convection slide-in (controls on front). Electrolux is a freestanding convection with the best controls and automatic features. Bosch is a basic non-convection freestanding range.
  • Microwave: Electrolux is convection with the ability to use as an ancillary oven, microwave or both. Jenn-Air is as well. I like the Electrolux controls better, but they are both very good. Bosch is a basic microwave only.
  • Refrigerator: Bosch and Jenn-Air are both counter depth and wouldn't protrude past the cabinet. Jenn-Air, however, is a more user-friendly and desirable french door. Electrolux is the largest at 26 cubic vs 20-22 cubic feet of the others.


Reliability (with 20 service techs on staff we look at this first) is a dead heat at around 20% service within the first year. Electrolux has been better since they replaced their problematic first generation refrigerators and dishwashers (kudos to them for doing the right thing).

The number one package sold at Yale is Jenn-Air with Bosch being a close number two. However, the package is now $700 higher without their rebates. Electrolux at $3999 is aesthetically more modern with great features. The package does lack the counter depth refrigerator and the slide-in of the Jenn-Air.

It will also be more desirable when the Jenn-Air rebates expire in a few days. So it really depends on your decision; price, aesthetics and features all differ. What do you like?
