There are three types of gas ranges on the market today: freestanding, slide-in, or professional style.

Freestanding ranges are the least expensive with controls on the back.

Professional-style ranges are the most expensive with high power burners and a commercial look.

Slide-in ranges have been a top selling category for Yale because they offer features and prices somewhere in the middle. The BTU output between a professional range and slide-in range is not that different anymore.

Slide-in ranges have the aesthetic benefit of the professional-style ranges while having a lower price. They have controls on the front so your range doesn't obstruct a decorative back splash.

In this article, we'll be comparing the Samsung slide-in gas range with GE’S slide-in gas range. We'll look at the brands, their products and then compare at the end.

Samsung

Samsung is a really big name in the US today. They are a massive South Korean company widely known for manufacturing cell phones, televisions, and other consumer electronics.

Household appliances are a very small sector in Samsung’s overall production. Samsung is known for incorporating innovative features into their appliances.

They produce two appliance product lines, Samsung and the Samsung Chef Collection (higher end).

Samsung is known for being a very good value brand giving you a lot of higher end features at a lower price.

GE

General Electric is arguably one of the most recognized brands in household appliances in the US market. GE is a huge industrial manufacturer. Whereas Samsung is consumer oriented, GE focuses primarily on the builder industry.

Like with Samsung, GE appliances are an extremely small sector. I should say was. Haier of China purchased GE in March of 2016.

GE markets three product lines: GE Profile (value line), GE Café (mid level), and GE Monogram (high end). To be completely transparent, we do not sell GE appliances.

Which Should You Buy?

From a features perspective these ranges are fairly similar. GE has more surface burner power at 20,000 BTUs whereas Samsung has 19,000 BTUs. GE has a storage, warming, or baking drawer whereas Samsung has a warming or storage drawer.

Samsung has larger oven capacity at 5.8 cubic ft. whereas the GE has 5.4 cubic ft. oven capacity.

Café was amongst one of the best appliance introductions ever. However, that was almost 10 years ago. Samsung has beautifully styled products. After many years of battling Apple, they know a bit about design.

Both these products are similar in terms of features. Samsung is better looking, but is it worth over $300 difference?

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.

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.
