I'm redoing my kitchen, all new cabinets, rearranging stuff, and all new appliances.

Should I get all appliances by one manufacturer, or mix-n-match?

I'm buying:

Side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker/water dispenser
Dishwasher
Electric cooktop, (flat ceramic type)
Wall-mount oven, 30" electric

The finish will be black on all of these.

I've been looking at all G.E., but what do y'all recommend?

Consumer Reports.

When ya spend serious money, ya want quality. If you get the same finish/color, different makes won't matter.

Price is everything. If you do GE, definitely get the Monogram series... closest thing to highest end consumer stuff without the price. Still gonna hurt ($$), regardless.

Looks wise, I could care less if it's by the same maker. If you went with all stainless, for instance, the only real difference is in the handles of the oven, dishwasher and fridge.

All same make will help with that. Mix and match will get you the best in each category, though.

Up to your "design committee" most likely. How picky is she?

ETA- we just went through this... look at the Bosch dischwashers, they come pretty highly rated, and are competitive in price to the GE. Quiet, efficient, and not too expensive.

We liked the KitchenAid stuff as well. Went with other makers, but they were looking good, and reasonably good values. The GE Monogram Pro oven is actually made by DCS, I believe, which is an excellent maker, and the DCS was our choice.

Are either of you big time chefs/love to cook? It's a great way to spend money on your house if you are- the return is worth it.

Of course, if it were me, I'd get a gas cooktop- none of that electrickery stuff to make MY mac-n-cheese...

Sounds like a thread for Dr Frige. You should put his name in the title of this thread, that seems to summon him quite well.

CR has already beat a half dozen of the top sellers to death and has measured them in every way possible. You know you like hard numbers. ;)

Just to make the point, I'm not doing a top-end remodel. KitchenAid is out of my price range. I want reasonable equipment for my money, but I'm not going Rolls-Royce here.

Ditto, on that. A lot of folks don't like that publication, but dealing with such a small amount people on this board you could end up with a real lemon. The statistics include hundreds of responses, if not thousands, they reflect a more accurate picture of an appliance. There are some real junk out there, that you're go to pay top dollar for. 20 years ago, I bought the top-rated Whirlpool refrigerator, and to this day, the only problem I had with it was a plugged drain, which took me all of 15 minutes to fix. The only routine maintence done was to vacuum the dust off the condenser once or twice a year.

Many people fall for the marketing hype and spend way too much money on appliances. I went with Whirlpool for my kitchen remodel and couldn't be happier. I shopped around and was very surprised when nobody could beat the price my GC was quoting so I ended up buying the appliances through him.

au contraire. The difference in handle and knob stylings is very obvious.
If you are buying all new major appliances anyway, get them all to match in style as well as color / finish.

The only major kitchen appliance I know anything about is my wife. And even then I dont fully understand her!

PLEASE stay away from GE. I base my answers on Customer service, Reliability and how much will the company remember you AFTER the warranty expires. The other factor is reliability. I have PROOF of a customer that had her GE refrig take a dump a week after the warranty expired. The problem with the refrig was an inherent problem and they did NOTHING for her. they did offer her a certificate of 50.00 towards the purchase of a new unit though.

she told them to shove it.

As far as consumer reports goes. i have seen too many errors in the appliance reporting so i dont really trust them (my opinion)

we have a Bosch dishwasher, its awesome.

We got the basic model, no really fancy settings. but boy is it quite. you have to be right next to it to hear it running. I like that I can take the top rack out, and wash out my 2 gal water jug.
Link Posted: 7/21/2005 9:39:54 PM EDT
By the way I STRONGLY suggest you consider Fisher & Paykel. The dishdrawer is a work of art that in consumer friendly, technician friendly as well. On a regular dishwasher it will take ME 45 minutes to change a pump and motor assy. For you on a F&P dishdrawer, it will take 5 minutes.

Oh Bosch is another GREAT unit. I agree with you on getting the basic model. It has the same pumps, motor, heater, tub, dispenser, water solenoid as the upper model. Just less bells and whistles to break. We have the upper end model (It was given to me by Bosch when I worked as a servicer for them) and all I EVER use is "Normal" and "Rinse and Hold" I NEVER use the other cycles.. complete waste of money... Ya done good.

Thanks for the advice. I've already ordered a Bosch dishwasher based on it. Sears had it on sale, and the one I'm using now has a leaking door seal. I looked at the Fisher & Paykel units, but $1,250 for a dishwasher is out of my price range. Hell, $750 for a dishwasher is a stretch!

It looks like I'll be getting a Kenmore/Whirlpool refrigerator.

I think its worth every penny. What model if DW did you get. Like I said earlier, I can barely hear the thing run. I love it!

ETA:

Lowe's is remodeling there appliances departments. You might want too see if they have any"Shelf" models for sale.

We bought a Bosch dishwasher a few months ago from Lowe's, and OMFG is this QUIET! Our old (contractor grade hunk of shit) was noisy as hell. We'll never own another dishwasher other than Bosch now. We got the SHY56 model, which was just shy of $1,000 after sales tax. It is running right now as a matter of fact, and I have to concentrate to hear it from 10 feet away....

We built a custom home all of last year and as part of that we did a very comprehensive review of a lot of different high end, pro style appliances for our new kitchen. We settled on the GE Monogram line as it offered the best blend of features/price/looks. And after living in the house now for about 8 months I/we are very happy with the choice. GEM is the best "value" in the high end pro-style of appliances and they actually did some discounting for us since we bough eveything from them ($13k+).

We did the 6 burner LP Pro style range with 2 electric ovens, big pro style range hood, dishwasher, microwave (built in) and side by side refrigerator and bar/wine cooler. We did all stainless and they look great. I'll take some pics if that will help anyone.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I don't mean to resurrect an old thread, but I thought it better than posting a new one.....

What about the LG brand of refrigerators? We are moving to a new house at the end of October, and we will be getting a new refrigerator for the house. I saw the brand down at Fry's, but wasn't sure about them.

We also have the chance to dump the dishwasher and stove for other choices. The builder only does GE (sadly) so what should we go with on the stove? We want "flat top" for sure, no open coils. I'm thinking either get a decent high end model, or the lowest POS so we can then upgrade to a better brand shortly after moving in.

For the dishwasher, we've asked for nothing to be installed. I looked at the GE they were going to put in and said NFW. They'll give us a credit for the POS, but won't install a Bosch (my current dishy, love it.) We might look at F&P as suggested in this thread too. Our primary concern is that the thing is SILENT.

Well, we're getting a side-by-side refrigerator, 25 cubic foot, for the two of us (and occasional grandkids.) 25ft^3 is a lot of space.

Dr. Frige, how do you rate the Whirlpool Gold Series?

As for the ceramic cooktop, my kitchen is all-electric. I'm not piping gas in here no matter what anyone says about the superiority of cooking with gas. The range I have now has a ceramic cooktop, and I LOVE the thing. No fucking drip pans to clean - EVER. Cleaning the top isn't that difficult, and the polish is cheap. Whatever cooktop I get will be radiant heat. Thanks for the recommendations, though.
