Here at Consumer Reports, our test engineers, market analysts, secret shoppers, and statisticians combine their skills to help find, analyze, and test thousands of products every year. Like you, we're consumers, too. We want to find the very best products for your home and ours.

That drive is why we take over five million temperature readings for each refrigerator that enters our labs, use a photo-imaging machine to determine how well dishwashers clean, and bake thousands of cookies while testing ranges.

The result of all that rigor is our in-depth ratings charts, which you can see for refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers, over-the-range microwaves, cooktops, and wall ovens.

Below, CR members with digital access can see the very best products across all of the major kitchen appliances we test. You can see even more CR-tested products in our ratings charts by clicking on the links above.
