We are rebuilding our home and considering the Kitchenaid Arc II Series for appliances. I have always loved my KA dishwashers and refrigerators... not sure about the double oven... Consumer Reports doesn't seem to rate the line favorably, but not sure if anyone has this oven and could comment. Was considering GE Profile, but based on GEs political positioning (thanks to another writer response) highly doubt we will go that way... Let me know of your experience with any of these appliances.



What can I do next?

Agree with Meaghan H 1000%. My husband AND sister have been involved in the appliance game and both would say the same thing. Never a complaint on a KitchenAide. I, on the other hand, worked for GE and I wouldn't buy anything from them for your same reasonings....

I did find an incredible deal on a Jenn-Air double convection oven and wouldnt trade it for anything....

I have to briefly defend GE as far as quality of appliances - we had a GE fridge in our last house (left it there when we move as it "went") and have a GE profile in our new house and had no issues (knock on wood). Kitchenaid - seems like you can't go wrong with that! We ended up with a smaller budget so we got frigidaire for our other appliances (DW, stove, microwave) and GE profile for the fridge - have been happy.

Good luck!

I have them and love them but don't get black for the range top - it is so hard to clean!

My hubby sells appliances and swears up and down by Kitchen Aid. He says he has very few complaints about them, and if we had to put in all new appliances, that's what we would buy. On the other hand, he HATES GE. He won't flat out tell a customer that, but he will definitely steer them toward another brand. His other three top of the line favs are Bosch, Samsung, and Electrolux. Hope this helps and good luck!
