6 Best-Performing Kitchen Appliance Packages For Every Budget



Whatever budget you’re working with for your kitchen renovation, here are the best appliance suites that combine style and performance.

The original stain of wood cabinets can fade, yellow, or discolor over time, and varnish can also change in color and texture. A good sanding and new stain, oil, or other treatment can give old wood cabinets a new life—but it takes some work!

Whether you’re building a new kitchen or giving it the upgrade it deserves, these kitchen appliance packages give you the most bang for your buck. We’ve considered looks, materials, craftsmanship, performance, and smart features in these suites, ranging from $2,200 to $13,000.

Affordable Kitchen Appliance Packages

Budget: Less than $2,500

One of the system's best new features are the interior drawers, which can now be as detailed as the most expensive high-end systems, providing a place for everything with drawers for pots, knives, tablelinens, and dinnerware.

This may come as a surprise, but as Consumer Reports has reported, price tags don’t always correlate with quality when it comes to kitchen appliances. In fact, their tests have shown that some of the best performing standard kitchen ranges are within the $1,000 range. Though you might find fewer finish options to choose from, your budget doesn’t necessarily mean compromising on performance.

When looking for ways to save money on appliances, be sure to research energy efficiency and warranty policies—it’ll help save money on electricity bills and repair costs in the long run.
