Kitchen Appliances - Help!

cinjosMay 4, 2013

Hi all,
We are renovating and are buying new kitchen appliances. I wish I could afford high end Wolf or Miele, but it's not an option. I need help with:

1. 30" Double Wall Oven - Kitchen Aid with or without steam assist? Or Dacor?
2. Standard Depth 36" Refrigerator - 4 door french door or 3 door? Looking at KitchenAid 4 door (25 cf) or Samsung 3 door (28cf) but open to suggestions
3. Best affordable 36" induction cooktop - can't really see the differences among them

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Cindy

I had a kitchen Aid slide-in range for 13 years. It was the top of the line when we bought it, and I hated the thing. Nothing worked right, it was extremely expensive to repair, and was not a "cook's" range. Our kitchen is funny, we decided to go with two slide-in ranges rather than a cooktop and two wall ovens, so my second range has always been a lower end GE or Whirlpool, and I was always much happier with those than I ever was with my Kitchen Aid, although I think KA is now made by another company. I just bought a Samsung induction range and I LOVE IT!!! It's only about a month old, so hopefully it will not break, but so far, so good! I also just bought a french door Frigidaire. It has the two doors on top and one big freezer drawer on bottom, and I'm extremely happy with it, although it is also new. One thing I learned about the fridge--we went from a 21-year-old Amana freezer-on-the bottom to the FD, and you need a larger capacity refrigerator in the FD model to get the same useable space you have in another style. Our Amana was 21 cu ft, and we had to move up to a 28 cu ft FD model.
