It's an interesting challenge. We just completed a total rebuild of a condo kitchen and went through what you're looking at. It going to wear you out.
Our kitchen is pretty small- 8 feet by 13 feet, so every inch counted. We couldn't use gas in the kitchen, so we're all-electric. We didn't have the budget for prestige brands (no $7,000 fridges) but could afford the best items of popular appliance lines.
We wound up with a Kenmore three-door 24-cf bottom-freezer fridge which is just 36" wide, so you can go something bigger. The Kenmore unit was well-reviewed by Consumers' Report, and was about $1900.
We got a KitchenAid 30" wide double oven; top oven convection and both ovens self-cleaning. It's also about $1900. I like to make jerky in the convection oven which has a special setting for that.
We selected the Bosch dishwasher because it is essentially noisless and does a great cleaning job. It was $1000. However, we've had three service calls in the first year; Consumers' Report says it's liable to need more service than average. As long as it works, we think it's great.
We got a 30" GE Profile smooth-top ceramic glass electric cooktop - no knobs, just touch controls. It looks cool and works very well. It has taken some getting used to but is a very effective unit. It takes relatively high maintenence. You have to be very careful to keep it clean, as you can weld spillages into the glass top if you're not attentive. We're getting used to it, and don't find the care out of proportion to the way it looks and cooks. It was about $1000, too.
The cooktop is only about 3 inches deep (EXCEPT FOR THE POWER UNIT AT THE BACK RIGHT HAND CORNER) so we have a shallow drawer under the cooktop with all the cooking utensils - spatulas, tongs, scrapers, large spoons, etc. immediately at hand. It's the feature of the kitchen my wife and I like the best, probably.
I capitalize the power unit part since I was only told the cooktop was 3" deep overall, and built the drawer to match. When I uncrated the unit, I had to take the drawer back to the shop and cut out a notch to fit around the power unit. The drawer concept still works just fine.
We put a GE Profile microwave/ vent unit over the cooktop. It was around $425. We seldom use most of its programming capabilities. It makes great popcorn.
You need to shop aroud and also consult the internet. I've mentioned before that Homeclick.com has great products and prices. Also, if your're doing plumbing, faucet.com has good prices on, like, Grohe.
Good luck and, hope you don't lose your mind doing this. My reason was tottering as we finished the remodel.
