Can someone please tell me how much the convection steam oven costs in the US? The prices I'm getting quoted in Alberta/BC are $5000 which is more than I'm spending on the BS range and fridge combined.

Ouch.

Thanks for the response katy-lou.

Grrrr. Time for a tax-free trip to Washington me thinks. Need to hit Nordstrom's anyway.

I noticed they've gone up on the website. Used to be $3400, now around $3800.

I went into the appliance store today and they are actually $5400. He said Wolf/SZ has a different price list for Canada and they will not lower their prices to US levels. CBC Marketplace ran a report just today on "Country Pricing"...markups of 10-132% for no truly justifiable reason. The retailers' hands are tied. It is so unbelievably frustrating to hear stuff like this.

Okay, rant over.

:(

ETA: First world problems, I know.

Current MSRP for the US is $3,850.

We were quoted $3,679 for the oven, plus $209 for a trim kit here in California a few weeks ago. You need a trim kit if you are stacking the steam oven over a 30" wall oven.

Thanks for all the replies. We'll definitely go to Spokane or Seattle to buy the oven and maybe some of the other appliances as well. Any suggestions for stores in Seattle?

I bought all our major appliances from Frederick's in Redmond, WA. Their pricing was very good. Our salesman has been very helpful working with Wolf to replace my oven after two and a half years. I hear that Albert Lee is another good store.

I'm also from Canada and it's crazy how much more we have to pay for items than our US neighbours. Augh!

Anyways, I'm currently in Asia and wanted to order the wolf appliances (several items) and no one would sell them to me online. I guess it's not news to everyone here but i couldn't believe how much control Wolf has on these dealers. They will only deliver within 150 miles. they can't ship them further and they can't sell them w/o actually being in one of their stores.... needless to say they can't ship to freight forwarders. in this day and age of internet shopping and all.... i couldn't believe it. i could purchase a $100k watch or jewelry online but not Wolf appliances. Anyway around this aside from taking a trip to the US?
