Unless you’re George Washington himself, the thing to celebrate on Presidents Day is getting a great deal on a big purchase. Most retailers have already started the savings, and many sales last throughout February.
However, as the appliance editor at Reviewed.com, I also cannot tell a lie: Some Presidents Day sales on major appliances are as forgettable as Millard Fillmore.
Our experts have tested hundreds of major appliances in our labs in Cambridge, MA to find out which products are the best. Now, I’ve combed through ads from the best-known retailers to find out which sales deserve your vote.
Consider this my official endorsement of a slate of candidates for a kitchen or laundry room remodel. After all, they’re the best deals you can get on home appliances this Presidents Day.
Whirlpool WFE515S0ES Range Buy at Home Depot for $497.70 — SAVE $201.30
This electric, smoothtop, stainless steel self-cleaning range with steam clean is such a great product that I put it in my own kitchen the last time the price dropped below $500. It’s one of the least expensive ways to give your kitchen a modern upgrade—and it’s a great product, too! That’s how it won one of Reviewed.com’s coveted Best of Year awards. It was $449 on Black Friday, but this is the cheapest we’ve seen it since.
AJ Madison also a gas version—the WFG505M0BS—which sells for just $444.10 through 2/13. That’s a $254 discount!
Samsung Convection Ranges Buy at Home Depot—SAVE up to $401.50
These gas and electric ranges from Samsung are currently the least expensive models you can buy that also come with convection, which helps cook food more evenly. Samsung makes great high-end ranges, but these entry level models are also worth a look—especially if you’re serious about baking but don’t want to spend a fortune.
LG ProBake Ranges Buy at Home Depot or Sears—SAVE up to $500
The new ProBake ranges from LG have a really unique convection fan. Our tests show that it speeds up preheating significantly, so you can spend more time baking and less time waiting. Now, you can get ProBake ranges on sale at most retailers through March 1st—including free delivery from Home Depot and Sears.
Samsung RF18HFENBSR Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator in Stainless Buy at Sears for $1098.00—SAVE $401.99
This is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a counter depth fridge, which tend to be more expensive because of their slimmer form factor. This 18 cu. ft. model is ideal for smaller kitchens, where you don’t want a fridge that sticks out beyond the cabinets. It gets rave user reviews, and we’ve had good things to say about similar models we’ve tested.
Kenmore 51793 21 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator in Stainless, Black or White Buy at Sears for $899.99—SAVE $500
This is one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen on a side-by-side fridge with through-the-door ice and water. Normally, $999 is a good buy—but this will save you an additional $100 over that! Plus, Sears is offering free delivery on appliance purchases over $399.
Kenmore 41153 25 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator in Stainless Buy at Sears for $799.99—SAVE $540
If you want more space and don’t want a through-the-door ice and water dispenser, you can save even more—and still get free delivery from Sears. We tested the 41153 and found it to be a good fridge for the money.
Maytag MFI2570FEZ French Door Refrigerator in Stainless Buy at Home Depot for $1597.50—SAVE $502
Want a traditional French door fridge in stainless? We like this spacious Maytag. It doesn’t have fancy features, but it does keep food cold—and installing it makes for an easy kitchen remodel. Free delivery doesn’t hurt, either
Whirlpool WDF520PADM dishwasher in stainless Buy at Home Depot for $348—SAVE $151
This isn’t the best deal we’ve seen on one of our favorite budget dishwashers—it dropped to $275 back on Black Friday. Still, if you need a good dishwasher with a stainless front, this isn’t a bad price.
KitchenAid KDTE104ESS stainless dishwasher Buy at Home Depot for $648—SAVE $251
Upgrade to a quiet, all-stainless KitchenAid for a very low price. With luxury touches like smooth-gliding racks, it’ll almost make doing dishes feel fun.
Frigidaire FGID2466QF stainless dishwasher Buy at Home Depot for $397.80—SAVE $201.20
We tested this Frigidaire and appreciated how many special features it adds over more basic machines. It washed and dried well, too.
Electrolux EFLW417SIW Washing Machine Buy at Sears for $599.99—SAVE $200
This is the best price we’ve ever seen on one of the best-performing front-load washers we’ve ever tested. While a full price of $799 shows on Sears.com, you have to go all the way through the checkout process until the further $200 discount is applied—plus free shipping. That’s about $100 less than we’ve ever seen this washer elsewhere.
GE GFWR2700HWW front-loading washing machine Buy at Appliances Connection for $799—SAVE $301
We like this GE front-load washer because it’s designed to sit higher up so it’s easier to load and unload. It also did really well in our performance tests, and gets great reviews from owners, too. It usually goes on sale for $899—but Appliances Connection has it discounted to $799 with free shipping. That’s a deal worth snapping up.
Kenmore 25132 Top Load Washing Machine Buy at Sears for $429.99—SAVE $290
One of our top-rated top-load washing machines is on sale for an additional $20 off its usual sale price—plus free shipping.
