It's go time! Appliance choices
After a rather lengthy wait, we finally received approval from the city permitting office on our kitchen remodel, so now I have to actually bite the bullet and commit to our appliances. I would love to hear some thoughts on my potential choices.
Some background: We're a family of four. Dad (me) enjoys cooking though I don't always have the time for elaborate meals. We like to entertain (e.g. dinner parties or brunches for friends a few times a month). For our appliances we're looking for quality on a moderate budget (like most everyone else).
Rangetop: Bluestar 36" 6-burner rangetop (I really liked the CC but I'm afraid if we encountered simmer issues it would prove to be a deal breaker)
Wall Oven: Electrolux Wavetouch 30" single oven (Reminds me of my Honda, solid and reliable -- am I right?)
Speed Oven/Micro: GE Advantium 240 (Will be used for quick weekday meals as well as a second oven for entertaining)
Hood: Imperial Hood 42" 900 CFM
Fridge: Liebherr CS2062 36" French door
Dishwasher: Miele Futura Classic
Warming Drawer: Sharp (for $300 at AJ Madison I'm willing to try it out)
