appliance decisions..

Posted by suburbanjuls (My Page) on

Hi all,

So I need to finalize my appliances so I can order cabinets(Barker). Here's what I have so far

Bluestar 36" Rangetop 6 burners
Broan 1200 CFM hood E64E42SS (42''W by 10" H)
Miele Dimension 5765 SCSF
Fridge-existing (1yr old) LG LFX21976 french door
Wolf steam oven
??? Wolf E series 30 inch wall oven???

I feel confident about all my choices thanks to extensive shopping, demos, and reading here. All except the wall oven.
While it's true that any brand can have problems, I want to make the best informed decision at the time that I can.

A range is out of the running for me, so if I were not to do the Wolf, what else I should look at instead?

All advice is welcome, Thanks

RE: appliance decisions..

Wolf is an excellent choice and matches your steam oven.

Another excellent, and IMO slightly better option is Gaggenau. Side opening door so you don't have to reach over a hot oven door to get your bakeware. Also has built in air catalyzer to clean air of grease before exiting into your kitchen among other cool features.

You may also want to look at a Gaggenau steam oven. It does not have a water tank like Wolf but is plumbed in and has better variable control on the amount of steam.

Gaggenau steam oven has a bit less room than the Wolf steam oven but unless you serve a platoon of Navy seals steamed veggies on a regular basis I don't think that is an issue.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, sometimes I think I just need validation! While I would love to say that price doesn't matter, only function I cannot justify the yikes I felt when looking up the price of those lovely Gaggenaus.

I think I will make sure to use their installer to get the extra year warranty, instead of my contractor. Then cross my fingers and hope for the best!
