RE: Anything new on Kohler stages? (Follow-Up #1)

I don't know if this qualifies as a new review, but we have had ours since the summer and love it. The SS seems to perform the same as the other SS elements in our kitchen - it can get streaky but can be cleaned no problem. We dry dishes on the shelf so we have not found it to be too shallow. We love the functionality of the sink and the looks - HTH!

RE: How Was Your BS White Glove Service? (Follow-Up #15)

posted by: ebean on 09.28.2010 at 03:52 pm in Appliances Forum

hey everyone. had our white glove service here in brooklyn, ny (the companty was elkay service corp.) they were old pros and the guy kvelled over the stove. they replaced the two odd knobs (bluestar sent them the 2 knobs) and tested the oven - it went right to the correct temperature but the crappy (tho not advertised as such) after-market thermometer read 50 degrees low!!! (his was digital and hooked to the grill and i trust that one.) he said that most of the after-market thermometers aren't any good ...the only one he recommends is expensive - a taylor mercury thermometer that he thinks is sold thru williams-sonoma.
he checked every burner for gas leaks (none) and then adjusted the air intake (??) air regulator? because we were getting whiffs of gas after we turned off the burner. tested the broiler.
pronounced it perfect and ready to use
onward!
Oh...since we were chatting i mentioned that someone on the web mentioned that the sides of their rnb was getting super hot and he said that that wasn't right and should be looked at asap.

OMG, I'm rethinking my granite order. Need opinions please!

I just ordered Uba Tuba granite for my kitchen ugrade. I'll be keeping my existing oak cabinets with some upgrades including crown moulding on the top. I was so happy with my decision as I think the Uba Tuba will compliment the oak beautifully. That is until I saw hausfrau_auf_dem_see's kitchen (link below). I just fell in love with the look, but I don't know if I could pull it off with my existing cabinets & all white trim in the kitchen. I plan on white or ivory subway tile backsplash. All other appliances will be stainless. Please help me! Should I keep my Uba Tuba order or try to change?

Here's a scan of my existing kitchen (fridge is now SS). Sorry for the poor quality - my camera died & I had to scan an old picture. Hopefully you can see it well enough to give your advice. Thanks! Kay
