High-end kitchens: I'm not the only sucker

I try to avoid posting on purely personal stories unless I can find some relevance for a larger audience. Finally, Consumer Reports has given me the green light to blog on my disappointments with high-end kitchen appliances. In an upcoming article, (described by MediaPost here) CR will publish an indictment of high-end appliances based on more than 5 million product reports.

And I thought it was just me.

Appliances in my new kitchen that are too unreliable to ever merit consideration for re-purchase:
  • ICON Electrolux fridge: icemaker replaced twice, still doesn't work
  • Wolf gas range: parts fall apart; multiple repairs
  • Fisher and Paykell dishdrawer dishwasher: sigh. Finicky and doesn't wash dishes well.
What's your experience been?
