The Best Luxury Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliance Packages (Reviews/Ratings)

by Steve Sheinkopf

The luxury appliance segment encompasses more appliances yet fewer brands than ever. Your idea of luxury may differ from mine. A built-in kitchen with wall ovens differs from a professional range, so it is difficult to choose just 5 packages.

In the luxury segment, you can expect counter depth, professional or integrated refrigerators, convection ovens, built-ins, induction power or pro gas as well as integrated dishwashers. Brands include Dacor, Sub-Zero/Wolf, Jenn-Air, Bosch, Miele, Gaggenau, and Thermador. Samsung and Electrolux have a few pieces for the luxury segment.

Best Affordable (Cheap) Kitchen Appliance Packages From $1,699 - $4,999

by Steve Sheinkopf

Packages are a great way to buy kitchen appliances.

You can take advantage of escalating manufacturer rebates. The style and look of your kitchen remains coordinated as well with handles and consistent grading of steel.

Affordable does not mean cheap or junk. Amana, Bosch, Maytag, Samsung and Frigidaire are all respected manufacturers. You can buy convection ranges, counter depth refrigerators (even 4 door refrigerators) and slide-in ranges under $5,000. 

At 1,699, you can buy a very good package of self-cleaning range, over-the-range microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator.
