Founded as The Jenn-Air Products Company in 1947 by Louis J. Jenn in Indianapolis, Indiana, Jenn-Air appliances have delivered precision craftsmanship, high-end cooking innovation and distinctive styling since the introduction of the first self-ventilated cooktop in 1961. The Jenn-Air brand was acquired by Maytag Corporation in 1982. Acquired as part of the Maytag Corporation acquisition in 2006, the Jenn-Air brand now represents the super-premium segment of the Whirlpool Corporation brand portfolio.

Jenn-Air brand transforms consumers’ cooking spaces into luxury kitchens. Its products feature industry-leading technology wrapped in elegant design to give cooks the power to deliver superior results. By striking the perfect balance between relentless innovation and designer styling, Jenn-Air brand appliances stand alone as the most preferred luxury cooking brand.

In many ways, 2010 marked a relaunch of the Jenn-Air brand. Using a combination of technology and innovation, Jenn-Air introduced a completely new collection of luxury appliances that combine best-in-class performance with an ultra-sophisticated design. Boasting such upgrades as the industry’s best-performing wall ovens, first “no preheat” mode and first full-color, touch-anywhere LCD control panel with built-in Culinary Center, the new collection quickly earned accolades from influential media and designers. These included the 2010 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) Bronze Award, the Consumer Electronics Association’s Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Award, and Builder News’ Best Products.

Along with an entirely new product line in four distinct styles, the brand launched a new retail strategy that makes the collection now available only to those retailers offering the highest commitment to providing the level of service expected by the super-premium consumer.
