    Re: Best place to get four piece appliance's?

    I don't know about brand but if Nebraska Furniture Mart is in your area I would definitely look there, especially if you are going to finance the purchase. Right now they have 30 months no interest if you use the NFM card.

    edit: Looks like the 30 month no interest in not on in Omaha right now because of the BerkHath shareholders meetings this weekend- but looks to be on in Kansas City and Des Moines.

    I for one would never buy stainless steel after talking to several of my friends who have them. They almost always look like they need to be cleaned as they show finger prints and smudges so easy.

    Re: Best place to get four piece appliance's?

    Sears runs some deals. We just redid our kitchen. Sears price matched their online prices and then were able to give us some of the in store offers on top of that. I am very happy with the appliances and the prices. We have stainless and are happy with it. It is a lot easier to clean than people say. Perhaps it is better than on some older stainless models. Keep in mind that all Kenmore appliances are made by the other manufacturers. Our refrig is an Electrolux, but I believe the rest were made by May tag.
    I believe that new models generally come out in May, so you may have already missed a lot of the big sales on the older models.

    We have a little bit of everything. Maytag fridge, whirlpool oven, and lg microwave and dishwasher. Maytag and whirlpool both seem better made. The lg stuff seems cheap. All of it is stainless and if we did it again we would go with black. Stainless needs polished everyday.

    Year ago we bought a Sears washing machine. Good price. Good sales person. 4 weeks for service when we had a problem. Not going back.

    In the past year we've bought Kenmore fridge and oven, stainless from Sears. Happy with both prices. 12 months no interest.

    Re: Best place to get four piece appliance's?

    My wife really likes to cook so we wanted to get a good high powered gas range but didn't want to pay the prices for names like Wolf. We ended up driving to the appliance barn in Kalona. We bought a Blue Star range that's a very simple stainless design, 22k BTU burners, etc. we ended up getting the dishwasher and fridge at Neb Furniture Mart. Bought a bottom freezer, middle drawer for pop nd such, and French doors. Stainless is the only way to o.

    Re: Best place to get four piece appliance's?

    Small sample size, but my sister and brother-in-law installed LG appliances at their home ~10 months ago. The refrigerator has needed repairs twice, and the dishwasher has spent more than 3 months (of that 10) out of commission between repairs.

    I don't know if it's a fluke or what, but that alone has made me want to avoid LG.

    I've been quite happy with my Samsung electronics.

    My two cents.

    Re: Best place to get four piece appliance's?

    When we built our house 5 yards ago, we picked ours out at Nebraska Furniture Mart. Prices were decent, and we got Whirlpool. I'll never buy whirlpool again. All 4 have had things go wrong with them. Had maytag in our old house and had them for 8 years and nothing ever went wrong with them. Same company now of course, but I'll definitely choose something else next time.

    Sear's was running 30% off on there appliances, so we went with the elite Kenmore's from Sears.
