Appliances for small kitchen

beth1010December 3, 2013

Hi. I've been reading your posts and good advice, and finally decided to jump in.

We're renovating a small kitchen in a small apartment. We are planning to install an OTR microwave/convection oven with recirculating fan over a 30" gas cooktop over a single electric 30" wall oven. We have no room for any other wall oven configuration, so we prefer a large capacity wall oven. We don't want an induction cooktop. We have no outside venting, so no hood.

We're also installing a 24" panel-ready dishwasher.

For the microwave, gas cooktop and electric wall oven, we're considering GE Profile (PSA9240SFSS or PVM9179SFSS, PGP953SETSS and PT7050SFSS or similar) or KitchenAid (KHMC1857BSS, KFGS306VSS or similar and KEBS109BSS). Any recommendations?

For the dishwasher, we're leaning toward KitchenAid KUDE70FX for the heat dry cycle and third rack. Anyone have good experiences with that model?

Thank you.

Just a small point: I've had an inexpensive GE 18" dishwasher in my kitchen, along with a 24". We almost NEVER use the 24. Unless you have a large family, you end up holding dishes in the dishwasher for too many days, trying to avoid wasting all that energy on a couple of plates. I think that most people, especially empty nesters, could gain back some cabinet space if they gave up the idea of a 24 inch dishwasher.
