My wife and I are looking to build a new house and we are trying to figure out appliances for the kitchen. I enjoy cooking and she is the baker. I was looking for some opinions on GE Monogram stuff. I can a pretty good discount on GE appliances through my employer, which is one reason I am thinking about them. The other reason is there is a $1000 rebate on the them. Here is what I am thinking about:
GE Monogram 30" Double Wall Oven
GE Monogram 36" Gas Cooktop
GE Monogram Dishwasher
I have seen that, for the most part, GE Monogram cooking appliances have been favorably reviewed. We are also considering Thermador(they have a promotion currently, dealer is 90 miles away) and Kenmore Elite(Sears is local and they always have a sale). The discount and rebate on the GE Monogram stuff puts it almost in the Kenmore Elite price range.
The DW is another story. I haven't seen any real positive reviews of GE Monogram DW's. Which means that it would get me a $1000 rebate, but I might hate the thing. We have had a Bosch DW for 10 years and love it. We are also thinking about Thermador, Kenmore Elite and Bosch DW's.
We are aren't opposed to a mix-and-match kitchen, because we really like the LG LFX31935ST fridge. LG also builds the Kenmore Elite #72053 fridge. We just want some quality items. We are figuring on about $8000-$10000 for the kitchen appliances and another $2000 to $3000 for the laundry. Sears had a sale a few weeks ago on Kenmore Elite appliances, it was 25% regular prices.
I found GardenWeb and have enjoyed the posts and information on here. I have been looking at reviews and pricing on numerous websites and things are clear as mud. Thanks for any advice or help.
