We are ready to start replacing the appliances in our kitchen - double oven, gas cooktop, microwave and refrigerator (we would like a built in like a sub-zero). We are wanting top quality replacements (wolf, viking or thermadore cooktop), and have time to look and wait for sales or closeouts and try to get the best prices possible.

I don't know where to start looking in the Dallas area. When the Home Depot Expo center was here, we could see many different appliances side by side and compare. Any hints to pointing me in the right direction would be helpful, Thanks

Consumer Reports rates appliances and can be found online. Or go to the library and ask for back issues.

Gold Star Appliances on 75 in Richardson.

My mom turned me on to them and I love my KA side by side that I bought there. Very helpful, reasonably priced and definitely have a range of high end appliances.

Look at Sears. I was able to catch Kitchen Aid appliances there on a wonderful 40% off sale, and I LOVE my new all-Kitchen Aid kitchen!!

frankly my question is why you think you MUST have that level of appliances...
most of the time people don't really see an appreciable difference unless they are professional chefs--and face it--most people might cook but they are not professional chefs...

my understanding is that putting in a higher level of appliance is not going to really maintain that price point on resale--having a very expensive Wolfe stove in home where others in neighborhood have Sears or Kitchenaid or GE models is going against the norm...unless you can get them a discounted--maybe really discounted--price...

and also I think that often times the dimensions of these types of appliances are not standard--which means trying to get them to replace other appliances w/o changing cabinetry might not work...

check your dimensions FIRST and make sure you know the sizes of whatever you are shopping for...

Not to thread jack or anything but is there anywhere you can buy Miele kitchen appliances in Dallas or even the US? They don't seem to have much of a market share.

We bought our Miele 5-burner gas cooktop at Kiva Kitchens in Dallas.
