48" AG Wolf or DF Monogram for same $$$
I can get a 48" Wolf AG range ( semi-open burner display unit) for about the same price as a 48" GE Monogram DF range. Tempting, but the Monogram has a bigger main oven, and both of its ovens have better racks and convection and broiling and and self-cleaning. Yes, there are the reliability risks associated with the electronic modules, but at least they are smaller than on other DF units. The burners on the two brands are similar, though the Monogram's are slightly more powerful. The aesthetics are a wash, to me at least - both are pretty. Then, there is Wolf's reputation for quality and service.
How do you balance preferred features against stronger reputation? Either unit could turn out to be a winner or a lemon. Would service really be better with the Wolf in my particular case? No way to know, of course. Should I just go with preferred features?
