Any experience with Whirlpool induction ranges?
I've recently purchased the new Whirlpool double oven induction range on sale ($1800 in Canada), but won't take delivery until the new kitchen is ready in a couple months. There are lots of mostly positive comments in these forums about the Electrolux and GE induction ranges that have been around a bit longer, and plenty of critique of the KitchenAid induction units (made by Whirlpool, I know) that make excessive noise.
So I'm wondering if anyone has actual experience with a Whirlpool branded induction range? It would likely have to be a single oven model since the double ovens are so new, but I'm guessing the induction component is the same in both, so experience with either is welcome. Is there any way of knowing whether they have similar components as the ill-fated KA ranges?
I'm especially concerned about the noise issue, as my DW won't tolerate any excess here (already bought the quietest dishwasher and range hood possible). From what I've read in these forums cooling fan noise tends to be minimal and vibration / buzzing / humming tends to be a function of the cookware as much as the stovetop.
The combination of induction and double oven is sufficiently compelling that I'm willing to take some risks with the new model, but I'm trying to do due diligence wherever possible. I've looked everywhere to find a showroom with ranges that are plugged in and can be tested but have found none so far.
Any other suggestions / advice? I know plenty of other folks are also wondering about this same range, so if/when I finally get it home I'll be sure to post any impressions / observations etc. Thanks to everyone for sharing your wisdom so freely in previous discussions and I look forward to whatever you may have to offer on this question.
