Help with appliance selections

MarieinCltFebruary 10, 2012

I am new on this forum and am so grateful to all that have taken the time to contribute. I have spent a lot of time on here...okay can be very addicting. My husband and I love to cook. But I have to say that delicate sauces are not in our vocabulary...yet! We are doing a major kitchen remodel, tearing down a wall and enlarging the kitchen with a large walk in pantry. I have not seen some of these appliances so I am having a hard time deciding, so any comments and suggestions would be very appreciated!

RangeTop: Blue Star or Capital Cullinarian 36" with 6 burners (we grill year round outside and don't need a griddle) I have seen the BS but not the CC)

Wall Oven : single Blue Star gas with French door. I really like the French doors but read a lot of negatives about the BS door getting very hot and complaints about customer service issues. Looking into the Gagganeau or Capital 30 inch.

Speed oven: Miele Master Chef

Dishwasher: Miele Futura

I still need to research hood inserts.

Looking forward to cooking on any of these! Thanks!

The BS/CC burners have been discussed to death .....

BS customer service seems to have really improved the last year or so don't think that is a pressing issue.

The hot oven doors are on the ranges not the French Door. I don't recall reading a review on the BS French door wall oven. You may also want to look at the American Range French door wall oven because it has co-dependent doors.You can open and close both doors with one hand.

For hood insert you want to look at the Prestige Power Pack.

I have never cooked in Capital wall ovens and I don't know how well the moist assist feature works but below are 30" double ovens 20% off UMRP with free shipping.

As you have already read the Gagg ovens are fantasic.

Miele speed ovens and dishwashers are fantastic as well.

Thanks, I'll check into the hood insert. Having only cooked on a Jenn Aire gas down draft cooktop, I am most looking forward to cooking on an open flame range. You are so right, there has been a huge debate between the BS and CC. Now I am confused even more, but I am guessing I will be happy with either one. It looks like I should give Trevor at Eurostove's a call.
