I surrender - it's not ideal but real!
Due to space restrictions I need to put the microwave above the gas stove... I so wish it were different but it's really the best use for my very limited space and now my appliance dreams and wishes need to regroup...
I need your help with choosing more mainstream appliances -
I've budgeted $3-3500 for the OTR micro, gas stove and DW in stainless. Since property values have fallen ... and fallen... I really hesitate spending more and everyone, from real estate agents to kitchen design people, all agree. The townhouses with nice kitchens do sell faster but still way below value.
For a DW I'm leaning towards the KA KUDC10FXSS. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles and usually turn it on at night so noise won't bother us.
As far as the gas stove the dreamer in me wants a slide-in or the look of a slide-in with a warming/storage drawer to hold pots and pans. Good by Berta (too small & no bottom drawer) and NXR - no drawer and output too high for OTR.
My brother got a Frigidaire professional in electric and has been happy with it. I liked the looks of the GE Cafe plus the 5th burner as a griddle and the wok feature in the Kitchen Aide caught my eye.
THEN - I started to read reviews and now I am thoroughly overwhelmed and confused and NEED YOUR HELP!!!
I will try and post this in kitchens too.
