that awesome! it looks like we were looking in the same price categories...one thing I normally never buy is extended warranties but we did for the appliances (thank goodness) Is Thermador the high end brand of bosch? Our last dishwasher was bosch and it was still going strong so we kept it over in the corner to now have two dishwashers...I never knew that you could spend more on appliances than on a vehicle! Our salesperson sounds just like yours...we looked at Subzero (couldn't afford), Thermador, Wolf, GE Monogram, some type of Kitchen Aid and Jenn Air...we went Jenn Air and based on the Fridge not sure it was the best idea but we needed counter depth
Yeah, Thermadore is owned by Bosch. My wife loved the wolf range (as expected they are in every home catalog you look at) and I thought I wanted the Bluestar, until I played with it a bit, and realized open burners would be a total PITA to clean. Thermadore makes really nice stuff, and they actually have a package now where if you buy the range and fridge you get a free dishwasher and was #2 on the list. I liked the burners better on the Wolf, the salesman said they had more service techs for wolf with shorter service times and he called them less; and finally the wait for Thermadore was longer. The price was fairly similar so we went Wolf range, Cove dishwasher and the Bosch refer. The wolf products have a standard 5 year warranty so, not sure I need an extension on it.

If your still looking for a fridge, check out the Bosch 800 (we ordered the 4 door) it’s counter depth and, like sub zero, has two compressors one for fridge the other for the freezer. I have yet to actually use it obviously, but it has great reviews online.

I have always been one of those folks that would rather pay a little extra to a small business if they knew what they were doing rather than take the info they gave me and then screw them over by buying from a big box store.

What I have also learned to do, however, is to pay attention to the online reviews on the big box sites. Online reviews are pretty standard on web sites now. Usually you can wade through enough of the reviews to make the right purchasing decisions.

Great reviews on the Blackstone items and enough people mentioned the importance using their seasoning stuff that I felt good about buying it and then could explain it to my BIL so he knew what to do.
Yeah, with you on the mom and pop shops, and I’ve gone crosseyed reading reviews and reports on appliances.
