Do we believe Consumer Reports (wall ovens)

10 years ago

I just did a quick scan of Consumer Reports ovens. Some mainstream brands, like Kitchen Aid and Whirlpool have the highest ratings 72-80 but the premium brands like Wolf (55) and Thermador (63) have much lower ratings? Are they commanding a higher price based on brand or is there something about the CR methodology that skews more mainstream brands? Or do the higher end brands have more complex functionality that may not always work?

Please advise. Thanks!
