DH getting mad at me for taking so long deciding. Help!

11 years ago

I have the job of choosing all the appliances for the kitchen and I keep waffling between my choices.

Its an open plan. My needs are simple, I want a QUIET kitchen , a microwave to nuke, am going with one oven because we hardly use it. Since its only one oven might consider the convection microwave although we don't need it. Oven, microwave and refrigerator are right next to each other, so they need to match kinda.

Have cooktop in island with skylight above so, although not ideal, going with a pop-up downdraft hood with remote blower.

Refrigarator is counter depth, french door, botttom freezer, no dispenser on the outside or the inside, except for an icemaker in the freezer - we hardly use the ice but need it for company and sometimes for us.

Here are my choices so far:

Cook top Wolf - CT36GS

popup hood Dacor ERV3615

Dacor remote blower: REMP16(100CFM) or REMP3(600CFM)


Franke ORX110


Bosch SHE7ER55UC($1299) or Bosch SHE8ER55UC($1499) or Miele G5105SC($1499)


Electrolux ICON E23BC68JPS ($3199)

LG LFC21776ST ($2199)- no water filter though!

GE Profile PFCS1NFZSS ($2199) - no use for the coke insert at the bottom of the door.

Oven/Micro stack: (will be next to refrigerator, so the tough choice to make)

Bosch oven HBL8450 ($2129)

Bosch micro/conv HMB8050 ($833)

Wolf E-series 30" oven SO302US($3709) (scared of the rubber looking control panel lasting. liked the hide-away-glass control panel on the L series but didn't like the design of the door - a dip behind the door handle - am I'm being vain here!)

Wolf 30" microwave MWC24 (didn't like the way it looks)

GE spacemaker microwave ($250)

GE Profile micro/conv PEB1590 ($480)

GE Advantim PSB2201NSS ($1882)

GE profile oven PT916SR ($1584)

Wine refrigerator (Under counter):

Perlick C-series HC24WBSS ($2199)

GE ZDWT240PSS ($1829)

GE ZDW1240WII ($1269)

SubZero4246/S/TH ($3129)
