viking vs thermador vs dacor

languages1May 10, 2014

I HAVE NARROWED MY CHOICES. WE ARE DOING DOUBLE OVENS AND 36" COOKTOP. I AM HAVING SUCH A DIFFICULT TIME ON THIS DECISION. WHAT BRAND IS BETTER? WHAT ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICES

If neither of you have seen these threads, they might be helpful:

On Thermador

On Dacor, a search will turn up older threads where the company had some issues with the durabiity of oven electronics. You also might check for bmorepanic's recent thread on Dacor ranges which may have had some discussion and/or links to other threads.

Also, you might find it worth your while to do searches at eGullet and Chowhound as I believe that there have been similar recent discussions there.

Languages: Watch the caps lock key. When you type in all caps it is taken as shouting and is generally considered rude even though that was not your intention.

Other discussion threads that might give you pause to reconsider are the ones for Capital and BlueStar. They are not carried by many distributors, but it's worth a trip to see one. I was in the same dilemma as you and was leaning to a Thermador, but then switched my thinking altogether when researching the Capital and BlueStar.

In just a few days, I'm ordering a Capital Culinarian 48". Fortunately, there are three dealers in many brands within 100 miles of me where I could see the brands side-by-side. To me, Capital was a clear winner, with BlueStar coming in a close second.
