Cant' decide between range or cooktop and wall oven?? Are Wolf and Sub-Zero worth the investment??

Hi Jill - We got a Wolf single oven and also the steam oven. We love the steam oven! It is great for various uses, but really love it for warming up leftovers. We bought a cheap microwave and barely use it. It is really nice to have two ovens -- you will especially love it for the big crowds you host. Have fun!

Any experience with steam ovens?

We are wondering if anyone had any experience/opinions on steam ovens. Would it be a good addition to a kitchen, or is there something else we should consider? We are planning on a single wall oven with warming drawer as well. We are considering a Wolf steam oven and would appreciate any thoughts on this topic. Thanks!

Miele MasterChef or Classic?

We are building a new house that we plan on being in for 25-30 years. I think we have decided on Miele for our cooking fun (speed oven, single wall oven and warming drawer). We have three kids and enjoy cooking as a family. We are trying to decide between the Miele Master Chef series vs. Classic series. Please give us your opinion on what you think would be best for a family of five. Thank you!

Venting for an induction cooktop

Thanks everybody! That's one decision made for our new kitchen. Now we have to think about mid-level refrigerators and wall ovens (no SZ or Wolf). Any opinions on that? Thanks!

Venting for an induction cooktop

We are going to be building a new house and have decided on a 36" induction cooktop. Do we need a range hood, or would an over-the-range-convection microwave be sufficient? Thanks for any advice you provide!

Any experiences with Wolf 15" countertop steamer?

We went to a Wolf cooking demonstration the other night. The chefs talked about the steamer and the many different uses (soups, sauces, noodles, vegetables to name a few). Just wondering if anyone had any experience with it and would recommend giving up counter space for this appliance. Thanks for any advice!

Wall oven/refrigerator packages

Hi - We are building a house and would like a wall oven/microwave oven-convection oven combo. Any opinions on GE Advantium? Bosch? We would like to have a consistent look in our kitchen and are also looking for a matching refrigerator. Reliability is an important factor. Any advice on brands would be appreciated! Thank you!

Cant' decide between range or cooktop and wall oven?? Are Wolf and Sub-Zero worth the investment??

Thanks for the replies. We plan on being in this house for the next thirty years or so, which is why we are considering putting more money into the kitchen (but we are mindful of college expenses which will be here before we know it). You have all presented good points for us to think about. I guess it really comes down to personal preference and have been leaning towards a range. Glad to hear your opinions, Splatgirl and Sid.

Sherri - have you had any repairs on your Sub-Zero refrigerator or freezer? Sounds like you really like them. We are always finding that we don't have enough refrigerator room for our gatherings. It was nice that you pointed that out.

Thanks again for your advice!

Cant' decide between range or cooktop and wall oven?? Are Wolf and Sub-Zero worth the investment??

We are building a new house and are looking at different options in the kitchen. We can't decide between a 36" range vs cook top and wall oven(s). Also, we are wondering if it's worth the investment to go with Wolf and Sub-Zero for our appliances. We don't see a lot of ratings from Consumer Reports... We are a family of five who like to cook and entertain, but far from professional chefs! We would appreciate any advice we receive! Thank you--
