J.D. Power Reveals Top Kitchen Appliances

Your homebuyers trust LG and Bosch kitchen appliances the most, according to a recent customer satisfaction study by J.D. Power.

In the global marketing company’s 2015 Kitchen Appliance Satisfaction Study, Bosch’s cooktop and dishwasher ranked the highest in customer satisfaction across six categories: ease of use, features, operational performance, price, styling/appearance and warranty.

Bosch induction and electric cooktops feature AutoChef, which maintains exact cooking temperature for consistent results, while the Bosch gas cooktop features a 20,000 BTU dual-stacked center burner for the flexibility to cook on high heat or simmer. Bosch also incorporates 18 unique sound reducing technologies.

LG ranked highest in three kitchen appliance segments, including two refrigerator segments: side-by-side and top-mount freezer, in addition to freestanding range. LG’s linear compressor and dual evaporators react quickly to humidity and temperature levels to keep food fresh for as long as possible.

    I didn’t think there were so many categories to rank appliances in. When I think of appliances, I usually think mostly of operational performance and ease of use. Features are nice, and of course price is factor, but I’d never thought much about including the warranty. Thanks for the great info – I’ve been looking at appliances for a while and now I have some great things to think about.
