Samsung or Whirlpool refrigerators, which one is the better brand? We will look into both fridges and see which on is the better purchase for you if you are considering buying one or the other.
At the end of the day, it boils down to personal preference but we are going to help your choice that much easier as we stack these 2 brands up head to head.
Whirlpool refrigerators are manufactured by Whirlpool Corporation, an American company headquartered in Benton Charter Township, Michigan.
It has a history dating back t 1911 when it was founded then undergoing a few name changes then finally settling on the Whirlpool Corporation in 1948, a name it has kept up to this day.
Though they started off and are still well known for laundry equipment, they have a wide array of electrical appliances many of which are under different brand names.
This rich history usually points to a culture of quality products. It is safe to say that the Whirlpool brand of refrigerators lives up to this benchmark of quality.
Samsung is a South Korean company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. It is a company which was founded in 1938 as a trading company and over the decades has diversified into many other field including consumer electronics.
It is best known to the average consumer, for their mobile phones. In fact, it is Apple’s major competitor in the smartphone market.
Why am I talking about the long history of these 2 manufacturing companies? Well, it’s in an effort to prove that these companies have the background that allows them to produce high-end products that are able to satisfy or over-deliver on many customers’ needs.
How much of a fact is this though? We will take a deep dive into this and allow you to give your own verdict at the hand.
I will do a pros and cons comparison of these 2 refrigerator brands. Please note that this is an overall review of the brands as a whole and not individual model comparisons.
First up, we will look at Samsung refrigerators then we will do the same for Whirlpool.
One of the biggest pluses for Samsung refrigerators and just about all of their electronics has to be the design. Samsung fridges have a great look and feel to them both externally and internally.
The design teams make it a point to bring out the best in these units. The look and color come out well and are a fit for just about every kitchen setup.
They are also known to be quite durable as well. Samsung also produces a series of smart fridges that offer the tech-savvy something to brag about to their friends and colleagues.
They are designed to be energy efficient and also come with features such s moisture control and adjustable shelving. Mid to high range models also feature ice and water dispensers.
Even though the quality of Samsung fridges is high up there, there are some, especially in the electronics retail industry who think that they are not that good of quality when compared to other brands.
This is really up for debate and can come down to individual preferences. I would advise doing some research on the specific model you are considering buying then decide on whether or not it is worth pursuing.
The other disadvantage is that they tend to be priced higher than other makes with the same specifications.
As already mentioned in this post, Whirlpool has a history spanning well over a hundred years. This background has allowed them the time to create great customer experiences.
Whirlpool refrigerators are really durable whilst being aesthetically pleasing as well. The attention to detail of the customers’ needs means that they have added things such as a fingerprint-resistant finish to avoid those nasty marks especially if you have kids.
They have placed a lot of emphasis on function as well as offering shelf space big enough to hold a platter or a pizza in some of their high-end models. They also come with water dispensers and ice makers on the mid and high-end models.
Some of the high-end models can be really expensive but I feel this is relative to the quality on offer. Quality does come at a price.
