Appliances

For the appliances, we found out that it's best to go with a "package" deal, especially for the deal which we got: buy a range and get free dishwasher, and also buy a fridge and get free range hood! In our case, which is excellent, because the island range hood alone would cost us almost $3K (42" pro-series hood + external 1300 CFM blower). We decided to go with external blower for its powerful ventilation and quietness.

Oven & Microwave

We found an almost new Thermador Oven & Microwave combination on Craig's list for only $650. Even though they are both an older model (POM301), but the look is almost identical with the new models (MEMC301ES), not much changes.
The built-in oven does not fit with the prepared opening in the cabinet. So, now we have to research & find a way to fit the built-in microwave & oven. May have to buy more parts to install this set properly. Here is a useful link to get parts. Also part diagrams are available on this Thermador's e-shop link

Refrigerator

For the fridge, we go with Thermador's Freedom Professional series, basically there are two separate units: cooler and freezer. That means, two separate compressors and cooling systems. This configuration provides the most reliable & quality cooling system design.

Ventilation

At first we chose a 42" island hood, however this size was rare and Thermador could not ship this one out for more than a month. The distributor then changed it to 48" island hood, so that we can get it within a week.
