Appliance Help: Jenn-air vs Kitchenaid

newbiechef | Mar 8, 2011 02:42 AM


I am in the market for a new set of appliances (Range, Dishwasher, Fridge) and due to budget and a deal that would save me quit a large sum I am kind of stuck choosing between these certain brands.

My question is do people have an insight into the reliability and the performance of these ranges?

Jenn Air JDS8860BDP vs Kitchen Aid KGSS907SSS

I know that both companies are part of Whirpool/Maytag but is the difference between these two particular models significant?

Off the spec sheets the burner layouts are as follows:

Jenn Air
16,000 BTU Power Burner
15,000 BTU Even Three Burner
9,500 BTU
5,000 BTU

15,000 BTU Triple Tier Burner
12,500 BTU
6,000 BTU
6,000 BTU

Any and all help is appreciated, and again for cost reasons I am sort of chained to these two particular models and the relating appliance package (Yes I understand that packages are not wise to many but this is my scenario). Thanks.
