    Damn

    The kitchen in our new house is great but we are already finding little annoyances that we can either address piecemeal or in one fell swoop many years from now.

    Must not let my wife see your kitchen.

    When we were house shopping, I wanted a place with a good kitchen. Everything we saw had either really old outdated kitchens or kitchens that were too new to justify changing, but that didn't really match our tastes. So glad we bought a place with a crummy kitchen and got to do exactly what we wanted. It's worth it. Don't piecemeal it especially if this is a long time home.

    Winmonster, is that a counter depth fridge? Everyone we looked at was a big sacrifice in space but that one looks pretty good. I confess though, it's mighty convenient shoving a pizza box in the fridge when there are leftovers.

    It is counter depth. If it was the the only fridge, it probably wouldn't have worked well. We have the beverage fridge and the old full size one in the basement. This one will be primarily fresh food storage. With completely separate compressors and good ventilation it will supposedly stretch the shelf life of its contents. I will miss the convenience of just shoving a pizza box in, though.

    On the bad side, I've now had time to notice that the installers' mistakes. The range is sitting out from the wall about an inch and a half when it should be flush. The top right corner of the fridge isn't flush, and a trim piece is already pulling away from the cabinet by the dishwasher. They also managed to split the cabinet under the sink by the dishwasher. I'm not thrilled with the install, especially with that last point. Hopefully they are able to make everything right this week.

    Appliances are all sorted out with no real scars to show for it. Happy customer.

    The backsplash is kind of a longer, skinnier, textured version of subway tile.

    No wall outlets. Underneath the cabinets instead.

    We are "sort of finished" , moving back in to the kitchen.

    Trim work to be finished and floors will be done over Christmas break while we are away. All in all I like it. I really like the sink, 1 side big and DEEP. the double wall ovens are really nice and the Proof function is really nice.

    The cooler drawer is good for keeping beverages cold.

    Painting the furniture is proving to be a pain, I have a spray booth set up in the garage. Two chairs and a table yet to go.

    I really like all the LED lighting that got put in.

    Looks amazing TMB. Agreed, LED 5" cans are the business.

    We put one in during our kitchen reno this summer. Love it! One downside is if you need to replace a lot of your pans to obtain adequate conduction. Gas wasn't an option for us. Honestly, can't imagine the speed of heat and ability to moderate it being any better. Plus there is no heat loss like gas or waiting for the burner to heat up or change it's temp. Simmering things for long periods of time is mindless now. Would do it again.

    We considered it when we renovated last year. Took us about 15 minutes to do the math on the extra cost of the range and inconvenience of replacing existing cookware to decide the new traditional electric ranges are just fine for us. We spent that extra money on nicer lighting and dishwasher - things we use more than the cook top. We picked this oven instead. I'm testing the dual/split function on Thursday for the first time: Sears.com

    Best cooktop I've ever used. Higher high and lower low than gas (excluding serious BTU wok burners, I keep a separate gas wok burner outside), instant response. Half my existing stainless pans were magnetic so I barely needed to replace much. The UI on mine sucks, lots of long presses, try before you buy.
