The Puls technicians surveyed rated Whirlpool the highest, followed by LG and Samsung. Whirlpool and KitchenAid were both strong finishers across all of the kitchen categories, but GE was the top-rated brand for stoves and ovens, and Bosch led the pack with dishwashers.
KitchenAid was founded in 1919 and was initially a subsidiary of the Hobart Company. In 1989, the KitchenAid company was bought by Whirlpool and Whirlpool now manufactures almost all of the KitchenAid appliance line.
Today, Whirlpool Corporation owns the Jenn-Air, Maytag, Amana, Roper, and KitchenAid brands.
Pros: The high-end Whirlpool brands, KitchenAid and Jenn-Air, have recently made massive improvements to the aesthetics inside their counter depth refrigerators. KitchenAid also makes a few full depth models with a platinum interior or clever middle drawers for optimal organization.
KitchenAid food processors are currently outsourced to Chinese manufacturers, although are built to KitchenAid's strict specifications. Whirlpool isn't the only one to manufacture their food processors in China either.

I've come to the conclusion that reliability and customer service are actually the most important criteria for appliances, and Bosch gets the thumbs-up in that regard.
