Can you please check my appliance choices
We are trying to finalize our appliance choices for the kitchen in a house we have gutted and added an addition to. I have not added the model numbers as I believe the Canadian model numbers would differ from the U.S. ones anyway.
Here is what we are considering. Please let us know what you think of our short list. In particular we are concerned about the fridge and vent hood selection as others we have chosen seem to be well regarded on this forum (or so I think).
1)wall oven (to be placed under a raised 43 inch counter) Elux wave oven
2)Update: Now considering the Liehberr freestanding fridge with one fridge door and two freezer drawers. The price is higher than we wanted, but there does not seem to be too many mid priced fridges. Do we need the bio-fresh drawers as that will add considerably to the price as we would need to go with an integrated door as the freestanding in the style we want does not come with Biofresh drawers.
We are open to suggestions for another mid priced fridge that will last more than 8 years and not be deeper than 28 inches including the door. We want a fridge that has one fridge door and one or two freezer drawers (not FD style).
3)Upright freezer: Elux Icon
4)DW: Miele panel ready with top rack for cutlery
5)Microwave: sharp 24 inch drawer
6)Thermador induction 30" cooktop (mirror finish)
7)Island Vent hood: We are considering a vent from Futuro Futuro. It is linked below. We like the style of it, but wish a similar version was available with baffles rather than mesh. It is a a 36 inch one, but given some of the width is glass, do we need a wider one (cooktop is 30")
8)We already own an older model Gaggeneau steam oven that we got on scratch and dent for a bargain.
Thank you in advance for any input you might be able to provide.
Updated on Saturday to include possible fridge choice.
