The Most Reliable Induction Range Brands for 2023 are:

  1. Bosch - 5.4%
  2. Café Appliances - 9.3%
  3. LG - 9.3%
  4. Fisher & Paykel - 10%

Induction ranges are faster with better simmering capability, require less venting, and are the most child-safe and cleanable.

But are induction ranges reliable?

Our reliability numbers are based on just under 40,000 service calls logged by our service department last year.

They are not based on lab tests or surveys but on people using the product just like you.

Appliance reliability is important because service is almost nonexistent in many areas.

Ultimately, you will understand induction range reliability, problems, their comparison, and the best brands to consider.

Let's get started.

The Most Reliable Induction Range Brands for 2023

The following service rates are based on a minimum of 40 induction ranges sold and a total sample of over 500 pieces.

  Service Rate
Bosch 5.4%
Café Appliances 9.3%
LG 9.9%
Fisher & Paykel 10.0%
GE Profile 12.6%
Beko 25.5%
Grand Total 10.5%

The average repair of an induction range is 10.5%. It's above the overall appliance service rate of 9.7%.

Bosch – 5.4%

Bosch-HII8056U-Induction-RangeBosch Induction Range


Bosch induction ranges are known for their exceptional quality, sleek appearance, and reasonable pricing. They are also highly reliable, making them a popular choice among homeowners.

However, it is worth noting that Bosch has a limited selection of induction ranges, with only one model available.

Despite this, the Bosch induction range is a great option for those who prioritize reliability and affordability and don't require a wide range of features.

In addition, Bosch offers excellent customer service, ensuring that any issues with the product are addressed promptly and efficiently.

Café Appliances – 9.3%


Café Appliances Double Oven Induction Range


Café Appliances' service rate is interesting, especially because their induction ranges are more reliable and come with more features than the less expensive GE Profile induction range.

This goes against the usual trend where fewer featured products are considered more reliable.

Café Appliances' double oven induction range is one of the best you can buy. It provides ample cooking space and has innovative features like precise temperature control and a self-cleaning function.

The range is also designed to be easy to use, with intuitive controls and a sleek, modern appearance that will complement any kitchen décor.

LG – 9.9%


LG Studio Induction Range


LG is a trusted and reliable brand for home appliances, which is evident in their excellent refrigeration, washer, and dishwasher products.

One of the reasons for their success is their innovative new motors, which are designed to be more efficient and durable than traditional motors.

These motors improve the performance of their appliances and contribute to their energy efficiency, making them an environmentally conscious choice.

Fisher & Paykel – 12.6%


Fisher & Paykel Induction Range


Fisher & Paykel's service rate of 12.6% is impressive, especially considering that a portion of their products is 36 inches wide.

Fisher & Paykel offers a range of induction ranges, including models with two flex burners and a power burner in the middle, making it an excellent choice for those who need more cooking space.

Additionally, Fisher & Paykel's induction ranges are designed to be easy to use and maintain, with intuitive controls and a sleek, modern look.

How Induction Range Reliability is Calculated

Measuring induction range reliability is simple.

We compare the number of products sold to those serviced by each brand over 12 months. 

For this article, we looked at the number of appliances sold and serviced from January 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022.

This standard is used because we service appliances free in the first year. After the first year, it is hard to determine what percentage of customers call us and harder to track.

Appliance Service

Appliance service is tough to find but an incredibly important part of your purchase.

Most people think of Yale as a sales company with three showrooms, but 2/3 of the company is service and installation.

When you shop for appliances, ensure service is part of the equation, especially with more difficult repairs like induction.

In Massachusetts, there are a few good service companies. Hunter, TOMA, and Poirier all have decent service companies. Check Google and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) for service providers in your area.

The Most Common Induction Range Problem and How It Affects You

You must look closely at any specifications for an induction range. An induction range uses 40-50 amps, while electric ranges use 30 or 40 amps and electric at 30-40 amps.

Induction ranges become susceptible to any voltage spike or problem with your electricity. Before you buy an induction range, make sure you check and upgrade your electrical.

Induction Range Benefits

1. Make-Up Air Compatible

Let me paint a picture for homeowners in Massachusetts. You just finished with your renovation. You vented your professional gas range with 600 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute).

The inspector asks about Make-up Air, meaning how you make up those 600 cubes of air per minute (CFM).

Hopefully, you have a return of air built into your HVAC because the inspector will not sign off without it. Even if you don't live in MA, you should have Make-up Air in an energy-efficient house to breathe clean air.

Induction is faster than that professional range, with less heat emitted into the room. You can vent induction at the 400 CFM and not worry about a make-up air return.

Although for indoor air quality, we always recommend a fresh air return to your house.

2. Speed and Consistent Simmering Capabilities

Any induction cooktop will boil water faster than a professional gas range. With have, you lose 40% of the heat through the sides. Induction has an infinite range, and as gas, it is instantaneous.

As you may know from a lighter, gas will extinguish itself at low settings. With induction, you can maintain a low simmer consistently.

3. Safety

Induction is the most child safe as well. Your child cannot accidentally activate the induction burner without metal. The glass doesn't heat as high, so there is less chance of your child being burned.

4. Cleanability

Spills cannot bake on the glass like an electric cooktop due to less heat.

Should You Buy an Extended Warranty for an Induction Range?

The percentages suggest you may need service within five years. Induction transformers are expensive repairs, so the warranty would pay for itself with one repair - in theory.

Most extended service contracts are call centers with no service. I would save you the money and aggravation.

Only buy a warranty from a company providing service technicians.

Investigate with Google Reviews or with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Your car dealership has service, and so should your appliance company.

Key Takeaways

Induction ranges have a service rate that is comparable to the average appliance, making them a smart choice for those seeking a reliable range.

Not to mention, induction cooking is widely regarded as the superior cooking method, delivering speedy results, precise simmering capabilities, and optimal safety.

Bosch, Café Appliances, LG, and Fisher & Paykel are the best and most reliable brands for induction ranges.

Remember always to make reliability and service an important part of your purchase. You will need service within the lifetime of an induction range.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the best induction ranges?

Samsung, Bosch, and GE Profile have exceptional induction ranges. Frigidaire just launched less expensive induction range, but we don't sell the brand.

On the high-end, Miele has its range with its intuitive MasterChef controls. You input the food and how you want it cooked, and the range will calculate time and temperature.

2. Are induction cooktops and ranges better than gas?

Induction is the best in terms of speed to boil, lowest simmer, and range. It's even better than professional gas. Yet, induction does not have grilling capabilities or other options like having a French top or griddle. The options are all available in professional ranges.

3. Is induction safe?

Yes, induction is safe, and it's the most child-safe. Induction is the least likely to be accidentally turned on because it needs to sense metal to activate.

As we mentioned earlier, induction is magnetic heat. The magnets in the burner bypass the glass and excite the metal molecules in your pan. The pan, not the glass surface, cooks your food.
