Kitchen Appliances

Recommended Posts

Just bought a new house. The kitchen appliances need to go. What should I get to replace them? I need: fridge, dishwasher, and a dual fuel range/oven.

I have a new GE fridge, not one of the Profile line or other high-end spec. 25.9 cu.ft., french door top, pull-out freezer on bottom. 'Clean Steel' finish. No door-mounted dispenser.

 

I love love it. Lots of space, and while it's not endlessly configurable, the adjustable shelves on the doors are worth the price of admission (I like begin able to store wine bottles on the door). The finish is as advertised – easy to spot-clean without leaving smears.

 

Several people have asked why I didn't get a door-mounted dispenser. I don't like that they eat up so much of the interior space; also, I was concerned that the dog would quickly learn to help herself to ice cubes. Plus, the dispenser is one more PITA to clean.

 

Congratulations on the new house.

Congratulations, too.

 

There's a lot of price cutting going on in the high end kitchen refurbishment market right now. It's a good time to get a good deal.

Congratulations on the new house. I've never bought a major appliance, so what do I know, except that I've wanted a dual fuel GE Profile range ever since I first saw one.

 

If the Johnsons are still pleased with their Bosch appliances, you should definitely take a look at those, too. I can confirm that the dishwasher is nearly silent, an important feature for me.

I recently remodeled my kitchen and bought all new appliances. I have an Electrolux range and refrigerator and a Miele dishwasher.

 

The range is dual-fuel and has a lower drawer that is a second oven. Good heat control with the burners. Lots of nice features for automated oven controls. The touch-pad oven controls are are sort of dumb. Pain in the ass to install.

 

Refrigerator is French door with freezer below and water and ice on the door. Nicely designed. My only complaint is that the ice dispenser is sort of messy.

 

Dishwasher is excellent and was easy to install. I really like the separate tray on top for cutlery.

We are building a kitchen.. We looked at the DCS for awhile but have heard strange things about them.. Supposedly, they are made in the same factory as Wolf.. However, DCS only goes to 48 inch and there are lots of complaints about oven issues. I think we are going for the 60".. Sub Zero for the fridge.. In terms of the dishwashers, we are still deciding what to get.

I'll chime in on the recommendations for GE appliances. Everything we have is GE and they have served us well.

 

On the fridge, don't get a side by side as it is a very inefficient setup storage-wise. I wish our fridge had the freezer on the bottom, perhaps the pull-out type. Besides seeming to make more sense, it is logical that the regular refrigerator be higher up since it is the compartment most often accessed.

 

On the washing machine, get a front end loader. Much quieter and more efficient than the top loader.

Oh, yes, on the front-loader washing machine. Cleans so much better, uses less water, wrings more water so that the dryer doesn't work as hard.
