Anyway, my kitchen is not set up to support a true commercial oven with the vent and sprinklers, but I need something that is built to last!! We went through the same thing with our dishwasher; we went throu 3 of the bc I do 3-4 loads a day. We got the Miele professional for the home and it works awesome! I am looking for a stove/oven that could also take my overuse...and I don't totally care how it looks, at this point, I just need something that will last me!
Thanks for your help and advice!!

Hi Sharon. Something sounds amiss. Have you considered having the gas and waterline hookup etc checked? I have a built-in over the range microwave. When the micro dièd, I ordered a new one from home depot. To make a long story short,, i found a vent was never installed. When I used the oven, the smoke alarm kept going off. I cleaned and cleaned the oven, and dusted all around and under same.
Brand names are not all that important to me. I've had the same appliances in former homes with no problems.
See if you can purchase a warranty or
homeowners' insurance policys. Tthat may or may not save you time on researching licensed contractors' licenses. Also, the former homeowner usually provides and pays for à similar policy for many appliances etc that break down w no fee for repair or replacement of same.
Best of luck.Edited by Cerise - 10/28/15 at 12:50pm
