Today I placed an order for our kitchen appliances.
On saturday I was at work, so the husband came by the Winning appliances closest to my work. He had a look around and then waited for me to finish work at 4pm and I joined him. We browsed and narrowed down our search until we came to a decisions. By that stage it was 5pm (closing time) So we left and went home. I tallied up the total and we were at 12k!
The budget I set was max 10k for:
- Range Hood
- Induction Cook top
- 2 gas side burner
We already own a microwave and a fridge.
So then it was back to the drawing board on a few items.
We decided on Miele for most items. Miele is having a good deal on products and combinations.
If you spend more then $7.5k there is a 5% rebate. (this seems to have no end date)
If your purchase an oven a cooktop and a rangehood you get a free set of telescopic racks (which was on my list of features I wanted the oven to have or be an optional accessory. These are normally $299 on their own) You also get a baking dish and the total value of this is $648. This is valid till the end of October.
If you purchase and induction cooktop, you also get a free set of pots and pans. Valued at $499
The oven, induction cooktop and the gas side burners I liked were all Miele. I wasn’t too thrilled with the choice of rangehoods, but had to purchase a Miele rangehood so I could get the runners and baking dish.
Here is what we decided on.
GAS 2 SIDE BURNERS
This range hood is 900mm. The gas hob is 270mm and the induction hob is 570mm so they will be able to sit side by side with a gap and still be under this range hood.
We did love a Miele dishwasher. And if you purchase a Miele dishwasher you get a cutlery set by Alessi valued at $249. However, we were hovering around the 10k mark, so I decided to pick something else.
I haven’t placed this order yet, but I am pretty certain we will get this dishwasher.
Its by bosch and is $269 cheaper then the Miele.
Winning Appliances is having a sale starting tomorrow, till Saturday. I am going to go there tomorrow to see if this dishwasher has come down in price.
I also think I have picked a sink- 1 and 3/4 bowl. This is an under-mount sink and requires the stone cutters to cut only one hole. (even though I think 2 separate bowls look better, I need to watch the $$$)
and of course my tap.
Now, if you are wondering if the gas hob and the induction hob are going to look weird together, fear not.
Here is a picture from the current issue of Belle Magazine that converted me.
That is an example of what I am going to do, however, they have another hob on the other side as well.
I still needed a gas hob, for woks and something I do quite regularly is I place a capsicum on the burner and char grill it. I was thinking we could just use the barbeque, but I don’t know how to turn the bbq on, nor can I be in 2 places at once and don’t wish to run from the outside to the inside while cooking a meal.
