What to Look for in Kitchen Appliance Brands

Before we dive way too far in, there are some specific things you’ll want to keep in mind as you’re searching for kitchen appliances and shopping-specific brands for your home. Here are the most important things to look for in kitchen appliances:

  • Reliability ratings
  • Customer reviews
  • Insurance quotes (if applicable)
  • Replacement parts and services available
  • Warranties and guarantees

Your appliances should last for years and years despite running or being used. There’s no reason that you should have to regularly have your appliances serviced or replaced. But, finding long-lasting, high-quality appliances isn’t always easy. The rest of this guide will break down each of the important factors above for all of the brands we’ve mentioned.

kitchen appliance brands


First on our list is a brand that’s longstanding and that’s been in most homes throughout the entire United States. Most people know Whirlpool for its dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers. See the water theme? That might have something to do with why they have the word pool in their name.

All that aside, Whirlpool is known for being a longstanding brand and continues to manufacture great products and innovation.


Another well-known and longstanding name, many would consider Bosch to be one of the higher-end appliance makers in the middle to high price range. Common appliances that Bosch offers include dishwashers, laundry machines, and other similar large appliances.

One such product that many homeowners revere is their dishwashers. They’ve developed several dishwasher models, and many of their customers consider them to be the very best on the market for dishwashers. Look to Bosch for long-lasting, highly-rated appliances.


A manufacturer of many different products, Samsung builds TVs, speakers, headphones, and why not kitchen appliances as well? As a giant in the manufacturing industry, it’s easy enough for Samsung to move from one product to another. This is likely why they’ve seen such great success over the years.

If you’re interested in buying kitchen appliances such as dishwashers, ovens, or refrigerators from them, just be sure to do your research on the specific product. Because they manufacture so many different items, the quality can vary greatly between each item.


KitchenAid is a much more specialized brand. But, when you’re looking for a list of the very best kitchen appliances, not putting them on it would be a real shame. But, what you might not know is that KitchenAid doesn’t just make great mixers. They also offer all major appliances that you can think of.

While they aren’t as well known for stovetops, ranges, dishwashers, and other large appliances, the customers that chose these appliances for their home have had great success with them being durable and long-lasting.


Some might consider Wolf to be the best of the best. We’re proud to offer Wolf appliances here at DWELL44. As one of the best brands on the market, Wolf appliances are sold at a much higher price point. The thing is that they’re well worth it because of their long lifespan and premium quality.

One such example is their convection ovens which offer precise heating and great cooking performance with high-grade results.

Zip Water

This is a fun one, and we mention it because it’s a unique option that isn’t seen all that often. Zip combines modern technology with the age-old necessity, water. The Zip Hydro Tap is an easy-to-use and install hot, cold, chilled, and sparkling water station that you can have in your kitchen.

Who wouldn’t love and use an on-demand boiling water system? Prep time, cook time, and time in the kitchen have never been faster or easier. You can see this awesome Zip product in action at our showroom.

Signature Kitchen Suites

Another notable name is signature kitchen suites. This company produces best-in-class kitchen appliances that can fit any kitchen. When you choose Signature Kitchen Suites, you’re getting a luxury cooking and kitchen brand that combines simplicity and elegance to make something truly beautiful.

One of the really fun and unique things offered by Signature Kitchen Suites is integrating technology in all of the products they offer. Touchscreen appliances aren’t a bad idea after all.

Fisher & Paykel

For a sleek and contemporary approach to traditional kitchen appliances, Fisher & Paykel is the way to go. This New Zealand-based company has been in the business of appliances for quite some time. And, they’ve created best-selling kitchen appliances that aren’t quite like anything else on the market.

When you see their appliances in action, it’s easy to tell that they’re designed for a modern, contemporary kitchen that’s cutting edge and stunning.


When you want the best at your bar, you choose Perlick because wherever someone raises a glass, Perlick is raising the bar. Premium bar tools aren’t necessary for every home, but if you want to have a tap in your home, why not get the very best?

Some of their best products are coolers, refrigerators, and other similar items perfect for a basement bar or outdoor bar. You can learn more about Perlick at our showroom.


We’ll bet that you haven’t ever considered the need for a kitchen appliance that gives you easy access to a garden. That’s right, Natufia is the first-ever automated kitchen garden. With this product, you’ll be able to grow herbs and vegetables all year round.

While this might not be a “normal appliance” in most kitchens, we think it should have a place in a lot of kitchens. Why not have healthy living and fresh greens right in your garden.


Miele does something special that few other kitchen appliances manufacturers. An espresso machine that mounts into your cabinetry space. These machines are amazing, and they work wonderfully. It’ll be like having a Starbucks right in your home.

Along with their espresso machines, you can purchase dishwashers, ovens, and some really well-designed microwave ovens. Miele is another great brand that you can find in our showroom.

General Electric

General Electric is one of the oldest companies in the United States. They’ve been manufacturing kitchen appliances since before it was cool, and they’re still doing it today. That means you’re getting an appliance from a company that has a legendary reputation for excellence.

One big advantage of buying General Electric is that it’s easy to get them serviced if you have any problems. With more specialty brands, you might get a more durable and potentially longer-lasting appliance, but servicing it can be harder.


Smeg builds all of the major appliances that you’d think of, but they are also known for some of their smaller appliances as well. Their list of small appliances includes toasters, blenders, mixers, and much more.

When you purchase from this brand, you’re getting a brand that prides itself in retro-styled appliances for modern kitchens. Whether you want simple or just reliable kitchen appliances, Smeg might have just the thing you’re looking for.


A Swedish appliance manufacturer that’s made a name for themselves over the past decades. Electrolux is best known for its high-end appliances that are built to last. Appliances like ovens, refrigerators, and dishwashers are the best.

If you’re looking for appliances that are built with quality in mind and a cult-like following for their brand. Electrolux is a great brand with a good reputation for all of its appliances.


LG is best known for its televisions and other home entertainment equipment. But, they also have a pretty good name when it comes to kitchen appliances. Stovetops, ovens, and other major appliances are all great tools offered by LG.

Their appliances are best known for their high-end look, that’s great for any modern home. Their refrigerators and ovens tend to be some of the best, and their microwaves also come with great features. They aren’t the best of the best appliances, but they are really good.
