This is our 8th most reliable post. Gas ranges should have been one of the first as the category is over 60% of the market. We will reiterate the service formula, but, keep in mind, reliability is a very elusive measurement in our industry.

Reliability Measurements

Every day, we have 23 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 percentage.

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.

I only cover year one in my reliability statistics because warranty service is free for the first year, so there is a greater and more accurate pool of data.

So, let's take a look.

What is the Most Reliable Gas Range?

Answering this question will require an explanation.

Before you buy a Whirlpool, Maytag, Frigidaireor Amana range, it's important to know that most of these units were sold on jobs to builders. Of course, 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.

Samsung looks good. Their products do work and are generally reliable, other than their top load washers.

Bosch is interesting. Their regular ranges have a respectable 11.49%, but their Benchmark is over 30%. Their Benchmark series is brand new to gas ranges, so it is somewhat expected with introductions. Their regular line was produced by Frigidaire.

Speaking of which, Electrolux has issues. They have lagged a bit while waiting for their failed merger with GE. Yet they manufacture Frigidaire, which seems to be one of the most regularly reliable brands sold across all product lines.

Which One Should You Buy?

Everyone thinks I am a high-end guy, but Frigidaire (or anything that doesn’t break) is probably my favorite line. Samsung is worth considering as is KitchenAid. Bosch will figure it out. 

Lastly, you should be concerned when the products actually break. The best companies with the quickest turnarounds for parts are Whirlpool companies, Frigidaire, and, most significantly, Bosch.  

Samsung and LG need more time for service and parts. They probably cannot keep up with their sales growth. 

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