I'm hoping for some real-world advice to help me narrow down my choices for an electric wall oven (single) and a gas cooktop. I need to replace my 23-year-old Creda cooktop and a 10-year-old Kitchenaid electric oven that I never liked in the first place.
Reading the threads here and on other sites, it seems that nobody makes reliable appliances any more and there are several companies to avoid if you need customer service. (Bosch comes up frequently in this regard).
So, here is what I'm considering on the recommendation of a local independent appliance dealer: DCS CDU304, and Dacor Discovery Epicure 30" single wall oven (EO130).
Both brands seem to have reliability issues. I'm open to suggestions here, if anybody has opinions about these or any other brands.
