Interested in everyone's feedback on our appliance package in terms of quality/value/pricing. Tear away!

Viking 36" 6 burner NG rangetop VGRT536BSS - $2962

Broan E6036SS Hood 600 CFM motor $1081

Broan MD8T make up damper $99

KitchenAid KBF042FTX Refrigerator $6148 (panel ready) $5999 (Stainless)

Backup fridge: Amana ABB2224WEW $1013

DW Miele G55055C DWTC $1699

Double ovens: Electrolux EI30EW45JS $2699

Microwave: KA KBMS1454SSS $989

Beverage Center: Marvel MPRO6GARMBSL $1710

Clothes Washer: Whirlpool WFW9550WW $789

Clothes Dryer: Whirlpool WED9550WW $789

Pedastals for each = $192 x 2

Delivery/Uncrate = $415

Total pretax: $20576

Notes: Main refrig is undecided. I don't like KA curved handles else I'd be fine with the $5999 stainless! The KA with panels will be ~$7000 after paneling; for $1000 more I could be swayed to go to the SZ/Viking product. I had been under the impression that a panel-ready refrig would be cheaper than SS, but am wrong. We don't NEED 2 compressor SZ action (we shop 2-3x per week by choice, no stinky foods really, have a backup fridge if things go wrong, no need for the "name" since not selling soon or impressing anyone). But man, for $1k more, I'm tempted to say why not.

For the second refrig, we just wanted a solid backup fridge for the pantry, hence the Amana.

We are having our GC price out some basic cabinetry pedastals to see if he can beat $192 x 2.

Be interested in everyone's thoughts on value for money/alternatives; $20k is in our price range. We have not done in-depth reviews on the clothes W/D, beverage center, oven-door style MW. Thank you in advance!

$989 seems way too high for a MW. I'd skip the Viking rangetop and get a more reliable brand - Bluestar, Capital, Wolf, DCS for example.

Take a look at Perlick for your beverage center. It will cost a little more than the Marvel, but is exponentially better in quality
