Gaggenau vs. Wolf vs. ??

hmiziaNovember 9, 2012

Hello All!

We are remodeling/adding on to an old brick farm bungalow, which means I get to build a new kitchen. Yippee!! I've got the basic kitchen design down, which is fairly clean and simple, and loaded with counter space. Now I need to decide on kitchen appliances. We have the ability to purchase and store these appliances long before the kitchen is built, so I'm able to search long and hard for deals on high performance machines like Gaggenau and Wolf.

I'm curious about thoughts and experiences with these manufacturers when it comes to variable cooktops, especially in counter steamers, and double ovens. I've also come across some interesting looking Bosch appliances.

Thinking about Miele or KitchenAid for the dishwasher. Has anyone used or worked with drawer dishwashers? I love the idea of two stacked, but wondering if it's worth the price.

Thanks!!

We had the Viking 6 burner range - it was really nice. With a lot of the top end ones it comes down to the look you like the best -

As far as 2 drawer dishwasher - we had the Fisher Paykel - they may be the ones that originally designed and started it all. It was perfect for us - empty nesters with small loads to run. No constant bending over to load it as well which is really super nice. We mostly used just the top drawer except for big cooking projects.

Thank you Karyn! That's very good insight about the drawer dishwashers. There are four of us, and after the home is finished my MIL will be living with us some, too. Full-size dishwasher it is!
