Homeowners who recently purchased kitchen appliances give two brands especially high marks, according to J.D. Power’s 15th annual Best Kitchen Appliances satisfaction study.

Samsung and LG swept the top customer satisfaction rankings in the survey for best appliance brands. Samsung took five of the top honors, while LG took the other three.

Finding the best appliances to buy is no easy task. You have to look for the right price range with features you want. J.D. Power’s list of top appliance brands can help you find a good company to buy from. People often consider energy saving machines as this is another major way to save money with a lighter electric bill.

The categories and best appliance brands in each category are as follows:

Dishwashers

  • Samsung (overall customer satisfaction score of 878 out of 1,000 points)
  • Bosch (872)
  • LG (869)

Over-the-range microwaves

  • Samsung (863)
  • LG (861)

To see all of the brands included in the study and how they rank, check out J.D. Power’s report. The rankings start on Page 3.

This year’s satisfaction study is based on at least 1,300 — and in the case of refrigerators, more than 4,000 — customer evaluations for each of the products listed above.

The most reliable brand

Samsung and LG are both well-known manufacturers. But the most reliable brand in America is not exactly a household name.

As we reported, Speed Queen took top honors in Consumer Reports’ second annual Appliance Brand Reliability Rankings.

The victory was no fluke — Speed Queen earned the same ranking last year.

If you can’t decide between Samsung and LG for the best kitchen appliance brand, it might help to know that LG also made the Consumer Reports reliability honor roll, finishing third.
