Amana markets a wide range of kitchen appliances, from stoves to dishwashers to refrigerators. Their gas and electric freestanding ranges offer a variety of features including high output burners, cooktop flexibility on electric models, and the ability to be self-cleaning. In addition to the standard 30" models, Amana offers a 20" product in both their gas and electric lines.
Amana's largest oven boasts a capacity of 5.3 cubic feet, which the company claims is the largest available on the market. The fine print excludes Maytag family brands in the claim, which is owned by the same parent company, and which offers a freestanding double oven 6.3 cubic feet of space.
Another unique Amana oven feature is a low-wattage element that keeps dishes warm without cooking and a speed cook mechanism that can save up to 50% in baking time.
Amana is owned by the Whirlpool Corporation whose brand portfolio also includes Jenn-Air, KitchenAid, and Maytag. The humble beginnings of Whirlpool go back to 1911 when brothers Louis, Frederick and Emory Upton started to manufacture "Upton" washing machines in St. Joseph, Michigan. The company received an early break when Sears and Roebuck began selling two Upton washing machines under their own private label. Today, Whirlpool Corporation is the largest North American supplier of the Sears brand "Kenmore".
In 1956, the company opened a new administrative center in Benton Harbor, Michigan that now serves as the global headquarters for a company with more than 73,000 employees and annual sales of more than $19 billion. Whirlpool has 72 manufacturing and technology research centers around the world.
