Appliance questions

dreamhouseprojectAugust 30, 2012


We are doing a major remodeling project. The kitchen appliances we are considering are new to us and I am having trouble finding reviews. We are thinking about the thermador line

30" refrig. column T30IR800SP

18" freezer column T18IF800SP

30" double oven ME302JS

36" gas range top PCG366G

also Sharp microwave drawer KB652PS

Any info you have would be appreciated. We are also looking for opinions on the colums vs. a side by side built in - your advice would be helpful

Hi there - I've learned that you will get more responses if your subject line is specific. And search the forums first - there is lots of information already about Thermador

Pay especial attention to the thread where it talks about Thermador stealing Julia Child's image to pseudo endorse their products. I wouldn't purchase Thermador based on that alone. But since there are plenty of fish in the seas when it comes to pro style products, that's not a hardship at all. Many of them, such as Captital or Blue Star will give you much better performance.

Sharp mw drawer is a good choice.

Trying to stay all within one company's brand is a poor strategy from a purchaser's point of view. Each manufacturer is only good for one thing or another. They all rebrand each other's boxes in any case. You won't get enough $ in coupons and discounts to merit staying with one label.

a slender freezer column is a poor design of a freezer. Period.

If I was going to do all 1 brand it would be DCS

if you haven't seen the 18" freezer column in person, search down a store that has it to see it. I saw the 24" and thought for sure that I only needed the 18". I saw the 18" and decided to buy a Miele fridge only. There was no way I was spending $4k for the 18" column. The door shelves are a joke.
