Appliance upgrades (induction, speed cooking)
I have learned so much already on this forum, but I have a few specific questions that I haven been able to find answers on yet.
I know there have been several threads about this, but I have some specific questions. We NEED a new dishwasher, ans we are getting stainless to replace white. That leads us to wanting to replace the other appliances too. Fridge is working fine, but I'm in love with the new Samsung French door with flex drawer. Micro and range both are pretty crappy, so upgrading them would make me happy too.
Dishwasher: pretty sure we're going with KA, but unsure how important pot scrubbers really are. I want to be able to not wash my dishes off before I load the dishwasher.
Fridge: unless I suddenly find horrid reviews on the Samsung, we're going with that.
Range: we currently have a free standing, but I would rather have a slide in. Induction is a must. I'm leaning towards the Electrolux over the GE because I hate the cat eye look of the profile, but I really love the look of the frigidaire. The problem is that it is a hybrid, which I don't want. Do I jump on the Electrolux now (sears has it on sale) or wait a few months to see if something new comes out? I have read that the best time to buy is September or holidays.
Micro: I really like the idea of a speed oven, but my wiring is only for a 120. Does the advantium 120 have bad enough reviews to just skip the speed cooking idea and go with a microwave, or is it still worth it to get it, just get an extended warranty?
Speaking of extended warranties, I know sears prices theirs ridiculously high. I feel comfortable without getting one on the DW and maybe the fridge, but I know there have been problems with the range and especially the advantium. I there another place to get a good warranty?
We are shopping at sears because of the 0%financing offer, and they price match everyone else. Home depot is another option, although they don't yet carry Electrolux (they will begin to in August, but they are still not carrying KA).
TIA for all of the opinions!!!!
