What is the Most Reliable Range?

Before you buy a Whirlpool or Amana range, it's important to know most of these units were sold on jobs to builders. We said that last year and the numbers were equally as low.

Whirlpool's upscale brands, KitchenAid and Jenn-Air, fared differently even though they are essentially the same range.

Simpler ranges with fewer features are more reliable. Bosch is average at 19.38%, but their more featured Benchmark Series is 28.57%.

LG/SKS and Samsung look good. Their products do work and are generally reliable. Those low figures represents mostly high-end products with features.


Samsung Appliances

In certain parts of the country, it is hard to find a technician to fix Samsung (or LG and any other high-end brand).

Reliability Measurements

Every day, we have 30 service techs performing 8-10 service calls with another 110 or so on Saturday.

We then look at sales in that period and divide by the number serviced.

In 2017, we logged 30,761 service calls and 34,486 in 2018.

We do not scrub the data. Every time you have a technician visit, it will count as a service call. We do not include damage and phone resolutions as service calls.

We only cover the first year in these articles because warranty service is free during that period, so there is a greater and more accurate pool of data.

So, let's take a look.  

Which Gas Range Should I Buy?

Everyone thinks I am a high-end guy, but anything that doesn’t break becomes my favorite line.

LG and Samsung is worth a look as is KitchenAid. Bosch will figure it out.

Now all you have to do is find someone credible to actually send a technician to make repairs, which is almost a certainty for a new kitchen within the first year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I get a slide-in or freestanding range?

Freestanding will be cheaper with the same features. Slide-ins look better because you can see your backsplash without looking at the controls of your range.

Can a freestanding range replace my slide-in range?

Probably not. Slide-in ranges are probably notched on either side with a rim on the back. That said, it's hard to do so.

What’s the difference between a slide-in range and a drop-in range?

Basically, the older drop-in ranges were dropped on a base cabinet. They look like a range without a bottom. Slide-ins touch the floor like every other range.

Most Reliable Appliances Series:

Editor's Note: This article was originally published on January 3, 2014, and has been updated for comprehensiveness and our most recent internal service data.


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.
