New kitchen appliances questions
We are renovating our kitchen and are getting all new appliances:
Our main questions are:
1. Range: Thinking of 30', 4 burner, all gas GE Monogram, Wolf or Viking. From what I read people are not so happy with Viking ranges on this forum so Viking is a distant 3rd. My wife has a preference for sealed burners which makes Monogram preferable in that regard. We are not super serious cooks, but we do want to have a good quality range.
2. Over-the-range microwave with venting, as we don't really have space to put a real hood in :(.
Thinking between Viking (VMOC, VMOR or RDMOR) or GE Monogram (ZSA1202RSS or ZSA1202RSS). The fact that we need a microwave rather than a real hood has some implications for the choice of range as well, I imagine.
3. Fridge: Subzero 36' french door (narrow kitchen -> french doors and we want to maximize refridgerator space vs freezer space) vs Libherr HC2062 (less fridge space, more freezer space), maybe Thermador or KA KBF42FT?
Would really appreciate any thoughts from the informed crowd here.
