Remodeling kitchen w/o a clue about appliances
I'm new to GW and after reading about appliances on other sites and on this forum, I'm thoroughly confused! Too many choices! We are remodeling a kitchen and need appliances. I'm not the greatest cook but for future resale in about 5 years, we are going to go with mid to higher end appliances about $12,000 for all (sort of mandatory-everyone has a Viking and Sub Zero).
We do a lot of simple cooking, use ice frequently and sometimes don't
rinse our dishes :). I always wanted a 2 oven stove too but if wishes were horses beggars would ride...
For a dishwasher, I heard that the Bosch 800 series is reasonable and a water saver. Anyone have experience with this?
What fridge (counter depth), stove and ventilation (we have propane availabl), microwave and dw should we get and where?
Also, since I've done nothing but read appliance forums (thus my confusion) I read that the prices at appliance stores can be negotiated down quite a bit (50% in some cases). True?
A sincere thanks to all.
