Highly Rated Appliances in 2014
With soil-sensing dishwashers and refrigerators that suggest recipes based on the food inside, the variety and complexity of appliance shopping rises in correlation with technological innovation.

Below is a list of brands on the market that indicate a reliable starting point for home appliance hunting.

Frigidaire: This is a brand with luxurious aesthetic but reasonable prices. Known for their stainless steel and operational consistency, this might be a good place to start if you are looking for a refrigerator.
KitchenAid: The top product line for the Whirlpool Corporation, KitchenAid received reviews about inconsistent cook times on their stoves in 2013. Nevertheless, KitchenAid remains a household name for all quality kitchen appliances (this goes for smaller machines like blenders and mixers as well).
