Electric double wall oven: Wolf Miele Electrolux or Thermador
Have a chance at the following "deals":
Wolf L series double oven, floor model, 5 years old, never been cooked in, no visible defects: $6,000 (regularly $7,230)
Miele MasterChef recently discontinued but same as current model except handle style. Still shrink wrapped in box from reputable store: $4,500-$4,800 (regularly $6,000)
Also considering Thermador Masterpiece ($4,900) and Electrolux Icon ($3,700)
Main question: Are the Wolf and Miele actually good deals, especially the Wolf - still seems high for a 5-year-old oven?
***Here are some of the factors affecting my decision:
Replacing 7-year-old KitchenAid Architect that died.
Need a great broiler.
Miele - Worried about low temperature complaints - have these been resolved? Timer maxes out at 99 minutes and 59 seconds - annoying? Oven light is either on or off while you cook - no button. I don't think I'll use programming - is this thing easy to use the old fashioned way - enter a temp and go!
Thermador - how are they doing with reliability lately?
Electrolux - seems like the bargain, but read reports of oven dying after self-clean...starting to sound like those too-heat-sensitive electronic controls on my KitchenAid.
