Discover All that Amana Appliances Have to Offer
If you aren’t familiar with Amana’s line of products, now is the best time to get to know them. Here are a few favorite Amana appliances that customers love and continue to purchase for their homes.
Amana was originally founded in 1934 as The Electrical Equipment Co. It was established by George Foerstner in Middle Amana, Iowa, which is where it gets its name. Eventually, the company name was changed to Amana Refrigeration because it specialized in building commercial walk-in coolers.
Over the years, Amana continued to expand into various other appliance options, eventually adding residential refrigerators to the family of products, and then home air conditioners. Eventually, Amana launched the first popular microwave for home use, as well as the rest of the appliances Amana produces, including dishwashers, cooking appliances, and laundry appliances.
In 1997, Amana was acquired by the Whirlpool Corporation, which owns the brand to this day. The company continues to produce quality appliances under this brand name with the support of Whirlpool and serves as Whirlpool’s value sister line.
Amana refrigerators have been known to last for several years while still providing the same cold air and air circulation you expect from standard food preservation. Amana refrigerators cost between $800 and $1,900 and come in traditional, bottom mount, and side by side refrigerator styles ranging between 14 and 25 cubic feet of capacity.
✔ We Recommend: Amana® 21.4 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator
This Amana refrigerator is ideal for small spaces. The side-by-side design, which uses narrower doors than standard fridges, is convenient if you don’t want to block a tight space in the kitchen when you open one of the doors. While this refrigerator might seem small at first glance, it has an impressive amount of storage inside with over 21 cubic feet of capacity. We’re also fan of the gallon-door storage bins, which can hold milk jugs, orange juice cartons, and other large containers, freeing up shelf space for items that are used more often.
This refrigerator also comes with an EveryDrop™ water filter that feeds to an external water and ice dispenser. This is a more energy-efficient design because you don’t need to open your refrigerator to get a cup of water.
Finally, this model is built with Temp Assure™ freshness controls. These are meant to preserve your produce so less food goes to waste. This can make a big difference for families with a limited grocery budget.
Check out the Amana refrigerator buyer reviews for this model to see why over 140 users give it a 5/5. One positive review writes, “After my Amana refrigerator of almost 30 years finally gave up, buying an Amana replacement was an easy decision. Hoping for the same reliability on this replacement. So far we are very pleased with this one.”
Round out the Amana appliances in your home with a new dishwasher that can help you clean up after dinner. While the selection is sparse, the tradeoff is an attractive price point with Amana dishwashers starting under $500. If you feel like you always have dishes in the sink or there are always pots and pans that need to be cleaned, consider buying an Amana dishwasher.
✔ We Recommend: Amana® 24" Stainless Steel Front Control Built-In Dishwasher
If you need a lot of space in your dishwasher despite having a small kitchen, this unit is for you. This large-capacity dishwasher holds up to 12 place settings, which means you will have space for most of the pots, pans, plates, and glassware you need to wash. As a result, more storage means few dishwasher loads, so you can spend less time washing and putting away your dishes.
This unit also comes with a Triple Filter Wash System that allows you to skip the prewashing process. Simply scrape any excess food off your dishes, and then place them in the dishwasher racks. Let the Amana ADB1400AMS dishwasher handle any baked-on food debris or hardened grease as the three-level water filtration prevents spots and water marks.
If you are in a hurry, select the quick wash cycle, which can handle lighter loads in a faster period of time. This way you won’t need to use “backup dishes” or paper options when you run out of dinnerware.
Homeowners buy Amana washer and dryer sets for their homes when they want simple, economical machines that last. While some laundry sets come with dozens of features and advanced technology systems, but Amana laundry appliances focus on getting your clothes clean. You can easily get the washer and dryer running without toggling through a whole control panel.
✔ We Recommend: Amana® 6.5 Cu. Ft. White Front-Load Electric Dryer
This is one of the most popular dryers sold by Amana. It features 11 different drying cycles that ensure you get the perfect level of dryness for a variety of fabrics and materials. You can set these cycles with a simple knob on the top of the dryer — just like Amana has been using for years. This clothes dryer also comes with a sensor that identifies when clothes are dry. This prevents over drying, so your clothes won’t get worn out or feel stiff when you remove them from the drum.
In terms of Amana dryer reviews, this is on of the brand’s most popular models. According to over 5,100 buyer reviews, 95% of users would recommend this dryer to their friends and family. One buyer says, “Economical and efficient. The cost of this new Amana is less than the repair bill I was quoted for my 8-year-old fancy dryer. It was a no-brainer.”
Microwaves are essential appliances in most homes. Studies show that more than 90% of homes have a microwave in the kitchen, which highlights how flexible and reliable these appliances are.
If you are looking for an appliance that you can use every day — multiple times a day — then you can’t go wrong with an Amana microwave. The lineup specializes in over-the-range microwaves but also offers some countertop and built-in models for households that prefer the traditional microwave oven experience.
✔ We Recommend: Amana® 1.6 Cu. Ft. Black on Stainless Over The Range Microwave
This microwave proves that you can still enjoy a sleek design with your appliances without buying high-end models with excess controls. Instead of a handle, a flush push button that pops the microwave door open, keeping a sleek profile. There are simple buttons on the front — including one to automatically add 30 seconds to your cooking time.
Users appreciate the large glass window on this microwave that allows you to check on your food. This is particularly easy with the microwave placed at eye level over your range.
Additionally, we give top marks to the built-in air filter with a 300 CFM airflow rate, which is enough ventilation to easily remove smoke, grease, and odors from the air for most cooking appliances. Customers report these microwaves are easy to install and can be used immediately.
Read online reviews to learn more about the features that make this microwave great. One buyer says, “I installed this above my stove and it was very easy. I like the simple user buttons, I've used microwaves that look more like space shuttle controls, not this one.”
