Anyone buy a floor model range?

Posted by jirka09 (My Page) on

I am finally in the market for a new range. A local dealer has floor models at a really tempting price. I've never bought a floor model before,is there anything I should be aware of? As far as I know, the warranty is the same, they are a bit dusty, maybe a minor scratch. Any thoughts/advice?

I Bought a floor model Wolf range. Being delivered tomorrow. It is a 60 inch dual fuel that lists for over $16300. I got it for $8500. Even threw in 2 sets of easy glide racks for free. It was in the showroom for a couple of years. The ovens were never used, but the French top has some scratches on it. Otherwise it is in perfect condition. Make sure you see it in person. It should come with the full warranty, usually. Mine will for sure. Usually the floor models are just used for cooking events inside the store, which is infrequently. Good luck!

I also bought a 60 inch DF Wolf. Because of Wolfs excellent service, they repaired everything that was not functioning on the stove, and there were many. They did not repair cosmetic damages, but I had thoroughly inspected the stove, and I knew that I could live with them. I would have no problem purchasing a floor model again, but make sure that it has a good warranty.

I bought a floor model Capital Precision, and so far am really, really happy with it. It has a few minor scratches visible only if the grates are removed, and was thoroughly inspected (it needed no repairs) before delivery. Upon delivery, the burners were adjusted and everything tested one more time in place. I saved a packet and therefore could afford this terrific range.

I bought a floor model Capital Culinarian from an authorized dealer. It was perfect and had absolutely no visible imperfections that I could see.

Great price and free delivery!

Billy - check http://www.searsoutlet.com/

They sell floor models, some refurbished items, at greatly reduced prices. We bought our Elux wall oven through them at a great price. It was a floor model, never turned on. It has a full manufacturer's warranty, was delivered promptly and looks to be pristine. It is awaiting installation.

You have to keep checking the site because there is no notification when something shows up. The site will also show you if something is available at a local Sears store. We were watching for a Bosch induction cooktop, but found the Thermador I wanted elsewhere.

We bought a Samsung induction range floor model from hhgregg. They also have an "outlet" room. The only thing it did not come with was a broiler pan. If you are missing a manual as is sometimes the case with floor models, you can usually download them.
