German Appliances in the U.S.

All major German brands are available at UAKC

Miele – Bosch – Thermador – Gaggenau – Liebherr

Known for durability and efficiency, German appliance brands have made their name in the U.S. market in recent years. These sleek and streamlined German engineered refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers, ranges, ovens, and cooktops have distinguished themselves as leaders in the premium and luxury categories.

Bosch, Thermador, and Gaggenau (all part of the BSH corporate umbrella), Miele appliances, and now Liebherr refrigeration account for nearly all of the German brands sold in the U.S. The BSH brands have a considerable U.S. manufacturing footprint, while Miele and Leibherr build primarily in Germany.

Miele boasts that as a family operation, they are not interested so much in quarterly earnings, but in long term viability. While competitors race to outsource products and cut costs, Miele builds 90% of their products in Germany and manufactures over 95% of their parts. Their sensibility is to build their products to last 20 years or more.

Part of the German brand success in the U.S. is the low energy use and water savings in their dishwashers. The Bosch dishwasher has also been a consistent leader in building the quietest dishwasher available.
