Ironically enough, both of these respective brand labels will be owned by the same parent company, Electrolux. Ultimately making them sister companies.

One of the oldest known appliance brands (since 1907), GE Appliances was sold off to Electrolux last September (2014), for $3.3 Billion, making Swedish owned Electrolux one of the biggest appliance manufacturers in the world, doubling their U.S. sales. Part of the deal, included the iconic GE Appliance name, which will remain.

GE

General Electric has always been and will continue to be, a common household name. Their product diversity seems to be never ending. In the appliance category, GE has a number of different series that range from a “value brand” to a “luxurious brand”, including: GE, GE Artistry, GE Profile, GE Café, GE Slate and their high-end, GE Monogram. GE has always been a “builder driven” product. More often than not, GE appliances will be found in new housing or building developments and is mostly builder driven.

Profile is a 20 year old sub brand of GE and their number 3 line after Café and GE Monogram. To some extent, Profile is a forgotten line because GE has focused mostly on selling the appliance division. To be transparent, we stopped selling GE years ago.

Frigidaire

Frigidaire is an American brand of consumer and commercial appliances, also founded in the early 1900’s. Their early claim to fame was the development of the first self-contained refrigerator in 1916. The brand was always well known for their refrigeration, so much so, that during that era, all Americans referred to all refrigerators as Frigidaire’s. In the 1990s, Electrolux purchased Frigidaire and really was responsible for the stainless trend ongoing even today. Frigidaire also offers a few different series in their respective brand label: Frigidaire, Frigidaire Gallery and their elite line, known as Frigidaire Professional. 

The following is a comparison between the Frigidaire Professional gas slide-in range and the GE Profile gas slide-in range.

Summary

Both of these brands in their respective Professional and Profile Series are very comparable. They both have convection and have upgraded their burners over the last few years with GE topping out at 20,000 BTUs and Frigidaire at 17,000 and 15,000 BTU.

The GE Profile will offer an additional cubic foot capacity in their oven and the 5th burner on the cooktop; because of this, they will offer more BTU power overall. GE Profile also offers the same slide-in with a Double Oven option.

The Frigidaire Professional is not as powerful and does have a smaller oven capacity, but it is $850.00 less in comparison with other package opportunity. 

We haven’t sold GE in a couple of years, but their reliability was decent. Frigidaire is one of the industry's most reliable brands, and is on our list for one of the most reliable in 2014.

Final Thoughts

GE is technically slightly better in features, but Frigidaire may be a better value…what do you think?

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.
