I am planning on getting an induction range and have pretty much decided on the Viking. Their current promotion offers a free dishwasher (FDW100). My appliance sales person gave me a brochure, but it looks like it is for another model. I know there have recently been big changes at Viking and my salesman said their distributor will be changing and so he was a little hesitant on Viking at all until the dust settles. From the info I can find on the web the dishwasher doesn't look all that great. I currently have an older Bosch (maybe 8 years???) that I love and that works great. The Viking promo ends Dec. 31. My salesman said that most upscale companies are going to free dishwashers rather than discounts/rebates. I am considering waiting until toward the end of the promo to see if a better offer comes around. Any ideas?
Do any of you have this dishwasher? If so, do you like it? I love that the Bosch is extremely quiet and it holds my dishes well. Well, it did until I just changed my old, mostly Cuisinart, pans for All-Clad D5s in preparation for my new range.
Other than the Bosch and a very old Whirlpool trash compactor all of my appliances are white GE Profile. I will eventually change to stainless and am not going to get hung up on matching handles. At this time I will also be removing my Advantium and probably just replace it with a Viking microwave (RDMOR200) that feels cheap but has looks that I love. Actually, it is what started all my trouble. I had already handed over my credit card to but the new GE Profile convection range (PHS920SFS) and Advantium but saw the Viking micro while he was ringing it up and I was smitten.
Thanks for any input.
