Appliance selection is driving me around the bend!!
My husband and I are downsizing from our big house and taking on an oversized renovation of a smaller condo. For the first time in my life, I have to buy a truckload of kitchen and bathroom/laundry stuff (appliances, sinks, faucets, toilets, showers, bathtub, tiling), all at the same time.
Since IÃ¢ÂÂve only replaced things in dribs and drabs over the years, this is a project that is making me wake up in the middle of the night in a panic, as well second-guess each and every choice (except for the 2 Toto toilets) I painstakingly make.
IÃ¢ÂÂve scoured this site but I would welcome personal, totally opinionated responses to my tentative kitchen choices:
KitchenAid cabinet-depth bottom freezer fridge KFCS22EVMS
Miele 30Ã¢ÂÂ gas cooktop KM3465G
Bosch 30Ã¢ÂÂ electric wall oven HBL3450UC
Broan 30Ã¢ÂÂhood EW5836SS (but what I really want is the Miele built-in under cabinet canopy DA3480)
My husband thinks I should forget about the 2 different stoves and buy one dual-fuel range. But, I canÃ¢ÂÂt figure out which one to get without robbing a bank. The GE CafÃÂ© Series Dual-Fuel 30Ã¢ÂÂ C2S985SETSS has gotten terrible reviews, Is it actually a terrible alternative? IÃ¢ÂÂm not a KitchenAid fan (except for the fridge)Ã¢ÂÂ¦so this puts me in a pickle, b/c I have no idea whose review to believe or which stove to choose. I looked at the Wolf 30Ã¢ÂÂ gas Range, but itÃ¢ÂÂs manual clean only, and I havenÃ¢ÂÂt cleaned an oven on my own since the invention of self-clean!
Electrolux EIFL5SIW and EIMED5SIW (I have a 9 year old Bosch NEXXT washer and dryer, which have been fine, except for the terrible mold problem- but theyÃ¢ÂÂre not making large washer/dryers anymore, so that means I have to start from scratch)
I could go on, but IÃ¢ÂÂll stop now and hope some of you have some input that will lift me out of my misery
