RE: Any POSITIVE Thermador reviews? (Follow-Up #29)

dodge59: Pretty much everybody said it's a crap shoot, i.e. you can have issues with any brand. Pay attention to the parts/service resources in your area before you buy. Beyond that, what I got out of my research efforts was basically:
-across the borard, not a lot of love for Viking, Dacor, Fisher & Paykel
-high marks for Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele, but many questioned the value proposition
-good marks for the Korean brands (Samsung, LG) on value and performance, terrible on parts/service
-no middle ground on Electrolux, it's either great or the worst crap you can buy
-good marks for Thermador and Bosch on quality, performance and value, some niggly reliability issues but a strong parts/service network in my area (I can attest to this)
-solid marks for Kitchenaid and (some) GE as the best mainstream choices
Don't know what "lead you down the garden path as far as range goes" means.
