In putting together their annual report on kitchen remodeling, Consumer Reports broiled 3,384 burgers, applied more than 900 stains to a variety of countertops, and dropped two tons of weight onto 51 different flooring products. Never mind the torture tests for refrigerators, dishwashers, and sinks. Upwards of 150 products earned a spot in our coveted winner's circle. T
REFRIGERATORS
High-end winners: You can go all out on a built-in refrigerator, spending upwards of $8,000 on one of our recommended models from Thermador, Jenn-Air, Sub-Zero, or Miele. But you won't get nearly as much storage capacity, compared with the massive interior on our top-rated French-door bottom-freezer, the LG LFX28991, $3,000.
For less: Want very good performance for well under $2,000? The Kenmore 7201[2] French-door bottom-freezer for $1,550 delivers excellent temperature control and energy efficiency. Among top-freezers, check out the Whirlpool WRT771REY for $1,100, one of the few in its category with an external water dispenser.
DISHWASHERS
High-end winners: Spending more on a dishwasher gets you all the features that matter most, like soil sensors, stainless-steel tub, adjustable tines, and ample flatware slots. Our-top rated Kenmore Elite 12783, $1,200, adds excellent washing performance, energy efficiency, and quietness.
For less: If you're willing to give up the stainless steel tub, the Bosch Ascenta SHX3AR7[5]UC offers washing performance comparable to our top models for just $700.
