There are so many choices of all appliances so I was a bit worried that we would have trouble narrowing down and picking just one. It was actually surprisingly easy. For the fridge, we really wanted a French door and double drawer combination. I love the look of these fridges and find that they are a better use of space. Also, there are not as many options in this look which made so much easier. The fridge that spoke to me (yes, it did :)) was the Samsung model. We saw this at http://www.appliancecanada.com/,
Also at Appliance Canada we found our stove. I had been debating between getting a cook top and wall ovens or whether we could find a range that I would like. In this kitchen, I must have two stoves. I have always wanted two stoves and having only one drives me crazy when I am cooking for large numbers! We don't have a huge kitchen so we need to make the most of our space and finding a double oven range was the most logical solution. Luckily, we found the GE Cafe double oven gas stove which is beautiful.
It has a five burner stove top and the lower over is big enough for a large turkey! I also love the look of this stove and drool over the big beefy knobs.
Next step was choosing a dishwasher. My parents have a Miele dishwasher with a seperate cutlery tray which makes sure that all your cutlery gets clean. My husband loves this feature so we were looking for this option. There aren't many options with this feature so choosing was pretty easy. I wanted hidden buttons and so we chose the Kitchenaid Dishwasher. Sleek and sexy. This we found at www.tascoappliance.ca.
Our final appliance that we looked for was a built-in microwave. I really wanted to find a microwave that also doubled as an oven. There are not many of these to choose from that aren't ridiculously expensive. We finally found a panasonic version at www.caplans.ca. I love this microwave. It does not look cheap and not only does is have microwave and oven capabilites it has inverter technology which means that is can also act as a warming oven!!
Now all we have to choose is our range hood. I have a feeling that this one may be the most difficult to choose as I have no preferences regarding this item. Any advice on picking a range hood would be great!
