High End Brand for Enthusiasts and Professionals
As part of Whirlpool, Jenn-Air refrigerators are considered a high-end brand, positioned for the cooking enthusiasts. Jenn-Air appliances are a bit softer looking than other brands aimed toward enthusiasts and professionals.
They offer a lot of advanced features, beautiful stainless steel finishes and quiet, variable speed compressors - they are not switched on and off as with ordinary refrigerators (which creates a lot of noise).
Jenn-Air fridges are thus much quieter and can keep more constant interior temperatures. All these features of course come at a higher price.
On Jenn-Air's web site, unlike Whirlpool’s web site, there is no mention in the specifications which models are Energy Star qualified. Energy guide documents are however available for all models and although Energy Star is not mentioned, you can see which models have the lowest running costs.
Some of the side-by-side and top freezer models (manufactured between 2001 and 2004) might be subject to recall, requiring a free in-house repair. You can check the details on the Maytag web site.
