LG and Samsung are the fastest growing appliance companies in the US. It has been so recent, you probably didn’t even think of either brand the last time you bought a range.

They were the first companies to understand you wanted not just a functional stove, but a good looking product as well. Maybe it has been all those years competing with Apple in their phone divisions.

The companies are very similar. Both are Korean and compete in the same industries. In this article, you will learn a bit about their companies and products.

Then you will see reliability percentages for both companies as well as the right time to get the best deal from either company.

Let's look at both companies first.

Samsung

Samsung is now one of the largest appliance manufacturers in the world and the number one brand in sales in the US.

Small Note: Their recent troubles with defective phones and top load washers do not extend into other product categories. Their repair percentages is 2-4% below the average in the appliance industry.

LG

Lg-Kitchen-Appliances

LG is also a Korean company founded in the late '50s as Goldstar. They branched into electronics and televisions acquiring Zenith in 1994. LG is widely credited for introducing technology into front load washers as well as French door refrigerators and creating the category.

The 10 min easy clean cycle is convenient. Simply spray water inside the oven, run the cycle, and then wipe the oven clean. No bending down to see the front controls on this range with the tilt feature.

The Pro Bake Convection is truly an interesting feature. LG is one of two companies offering True Convection.

Regular convection has the fan in the back, but the heating element is below. The heat rises then the fan distributes the air.

True convection has the heating element in the back so the heat is blown in from the back for more even heat.

This is a very interesting comparison. The burners on the top are very similar.

The aesthetics on the Samsung seem more refined than LG.

In the freestanding, the LG has bit more power, although they both have high output burners. LG has the pro bake convection while the Samsung has regular convection.

The LG slide-in has dual ovens that would offer better temperature control while the Samsung has a removal Flex Duo divider. Samsung you can use convection in both ovens, LG just has it in the top one. Samsung also has better output in their slide-in.

Wi-Fi is interesting and is where the appliance industry is headed. Both LG and Samsung offer it for diagnosis and remote oven control.

LG has the Pro Bake feature. Oddly enough, the only other manufacturer offering pure convection is BlueStar.

Both are excellent with Samsung being almost 1% better on a much bigger volume. You may ask why does Samsung outsell LG almost 20-1 for such similar products.

LG vs. Samsung Appliance Packages

Samsung is better in other key appliance categories, especially refrigeration and dishwashers. If you are buying an appliance package, you have a better mix of products with Samsung.

LG, on the other hand, has better laundry (not relevant in this comparison).

Which Convection Gas Range Should I Buy?

Depends on what you like. For broiling, both brands offer the ability to use a smaller top cavity for better heat retention, but LG may have better control there.. In the oven, LG has better capacity and convection delivery system.

The Flex Duo is a great idea, especially if you want to cook a large turkey you can take the divider out, LG you are limited to 2 smaller ovens. Samsung has better burners in a slide-in.

For packages, you should buy Samsung. For a single convection gas range, both have their compelling points.

When is the best time to buy Samsung or LG appliances?

Appliances are now sold like TVs. If you can wait, Black Friday, President's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and July 4th are the best times to buy LG or Samsung appliances. You can save 10-35%.

Tariff Implications

Both were hit with punitive tariffs on laundry only. The industry is grappling with a 25% tariff on steel and another 10% on aluminum. If this is part of an overall remodel, ask your contractor about price volatility.

It is not clear whether higher prices are on the way or whether we have seen the worst of it. 2018 was a challenging year for any product comprised of steel like appliances.

LG/Samsung Service

Many dealers do not service LG/Samsung of the few actually servicing. There is nothing difficult or extraordinary about fixing either.

However, in certain parts of the country, it may be hard to find service for both brands.

You should know who will be fixing any appliance brand before you buy.
