They are offering a fabulous deal. I don't know much about it so now I'm on a research mission. Thanks for your feedback.

What deal ?

If I purchase the built in frig with the cooktop & oven I will receive the DW and vent for free! A savings of about 3K. Not sure I want all Jennair though. Any experience with it?

The deal is: Purchase a built in frig and oven and you get a DW for free as well as the vent system. About 3K savings. Just not sure about the Jennair brand.

Pattyjill: "Just not sure about the Jennair brand."

Maytag purchased both Amana and Jenn-air a long time ago, and made Jenn-air the premium version of the Maytag/Amana lines (just as Acura is the premium Honda and Lexus is the premium Toyota and Infiniti is the premium Nissan). Whirlpool purchased the KitchenAid brand from Hobart some years ago, and made KitchenAid the premium version of Whirlpool.

Then Maytag/Amana was purchased by Whirlpool; there was some (nearly complete) duplication across product lines. Whirlpool's solution: shut down the Amana/Maytag factories; bulldoze all vestiges of Amana and Maytag in Iowa; fire all the workers, and raid the pension plan for bonuses for the Whirlpool execs . The company is all Michigan now.

Jenn-air now is rebadged KitchenAid. Except for styling, KitchenAids are Jenn-airs and Jenn-airs are KitchenAids.

and of course KitchenAid itself is just rebadged Whirlpool.

Jenn-Air = KitchenAid = Maytag = Whirlpool nowadays.

and answering your question, it's not that amazing a deal since recent Jenn-Air products are so overpriced to begin with, being largely similar to Whirlpool items that are half the price, or Kitchenaid items that are somewhat lower priced. They seem to always be running some sort of "buy 3 appliances, get a fourth free" type deals.

They just ended buy 3 get dishwasher free in Canada.
But when I called appliancecanada lady on phone said buy 4 jennair products and get 15% free.
Wonder if it's a local thing or new jennair promo.

Double check on the warranties.
As others have said KitchenAid is the same as JennAir. When I was looking for my fridge freezer drawers, I compared the two and they were identical with the exception of a different colored interior.
However, the JennAir was about 200.00 more AND had shorter warranty. It was an easy decision to purchase the KA.
