We are remodeling our kitchen and are blown away by the beautiful Gaggenau appliances. But, we have not been able to get much information from the Gaggenau website or their brochures. We are interested in getting a full surface induction cooktop, one gas cooktop, 24 in regular and steam oven, 24 inch fridge and freezer column, their ventilation unit and dishwasher. We would appreciate any thoughts from Gaggenau users:
1) Are the Gaggenau appliances functionally superior to others? What makes them better?
2) We live in Northern California. Does anybody have experience with how Gaggenau responds to service issues? How soon can they repair the appliances?
3) Gaggenau seems to have muted lighting in their fridge / freezer units. What is your experience using the fridge / freezer?
