It goes without saying that appliances play a major role in the kitchen. After all, where would we be without stoves, ovens, and refrigerators? Some of us (renters, mostly) may not give our major appliances much thought because we don't have control over which ones we have, while others may be deep in the throes of appliance research for a kitchen renovation.
Either way, you've probably met someone at some point who raved about their Miele dishwasher, or totally splurged on a Liebherr refrigerator when they bought their first house. If you own and love a particular refrigerator, range, oven, or dishwasher, or just covet a particular brand or model, we want to know what it is and why!
In the comments below, tell us:
1. What appliance brand and model you have (or desire).
2. How much it costs.
3. Why you love it or want it.
4. Any features that stand out that make it a cut above the rest, i.e. it's a terrific small-space fridge, or it's an exceptionally quiet dishwasher, or it's just so pretty!
Conversely, if you currently have an appliance that you really hate, tell us that, too!
We'll compile your recommendations in a post next week!
