Should I wait for new Wolf microwave?
I am remodeling my kitchen, and expect to have it completed this year. I am planning to install the Wolf convection steam oven (CSO24). Last week I found out about WolfÃ¢ÂÂs new product rollout (http://newgeneration.subzero-wolf.com/) and noticed that the new 24" microwave with the dropdown door (MSDD24) appears to be a design match for the CSO24. I would like to mount the new microwave immediately above the steam oven. The CSO doesnÃ¢ÂÂt need a trim kit, and if the microwave doesnÃ¢ÂÂt need one either, I could reduce the stack width from 30Ã¢ÂÂ to 24Ã¢ÂÂ. ThatÃ¢ÂÂs a lot of additional cabinet space in the adjoining cabinets, so IÃ¢ÂÂm willing to leave a spot vacant for the microwave until it becomes available. I am also motivated to wait for the new microwave because the current microwave offerings from Wolf require a 30Ã¢ÂÂ trim kit, and theyÃ¢ÂÂre so ugly that if I left them on the curb for the donation truck, theyÃ¢ÂÂd probably still be there when I came home.
I realize that a lot can go wrong; Wolf may change their mind about offering this microwave, or they may change the dimensions, or they may delay the release. But, given WolfÃ¢ÂÂs marketing push on the convection steam oven, and the striking similarity of the new microwave, IÃ¢ÂÂm willing to bet that they wonÃ¢ÂÂt change their mind or the dimensions.
Which leads me to my main concern and the reason for this post. Does anyone in this forum have information on how well Wolf meets their projected release dates for new products?
Any other on-topic comments are welcome, and donÃ¢ÂÂt be afraid to call me crazy for wanting to wait.
Thanks in advance . . .
