Miele 30' gas cooktop KM 3474 G... Miele oven H4844 BP

BestbobFebruary 27, 2012

We are replacing cooktop, wall oven, microwave, and dishwasher in the next month. After our first visit to an appliance store, we were about to purchase a Bosch cooktop and wall oven... but owner comments in several forums re both use and service have us continuing to search.

The Miele gas cooktop is about $400 more than the Bosch we priced but less than an equivalent Wolf, which was about the top of our price range. So if comments on the Miele cooktop were comparable to those re Miele dishwashers re reliability and service, we'd be interested.

The Miele wall oven at about $3,200 is much more than the $1250 for the Bosch HBL3350UC we viewed and priced but if comments are strong, we'd consider that as well. (We are also seriously considering the Miele Classic dishwaster as relatively good value for money in this range.)

Comments from people who own the cooktop and/or the wall oven are appreciated. If I have not given enough information, I'll try to fill the gaps.

The Miele cooktops I've owned have been nothing special, especially given their price.

Good, trouble free units but not really worth a premium.

Wolf's CT36 is a nice gas unit that is comparable in price, even though it's higher advertised price.

For me it boils down to burner / control arrangement and the "feel" of the knobs or buttons.

If the price doesn't scare you then go Miele. Kind of like comparing Porsche to Volkswagon.
