After a ton of research (including many hours on Consumer Reports, and a lot of time spent at different stores looking at the different appliances), we've made our final picks for all the kitchen appliances.
Here's the rundown:
Fridge: Samsung Stainless Steel 26.0 cu. ft. French-Door Bottom Freezer (RF266AE)
Range: Kenmore Stainless Steel 30 in. Double Gas Freestanding Oven (Model 78013)
Dishwasher: Kenmore Stainless Steel 24" Built-in Dishwasher with Ultra Wash System (Model 1321)
Range Hood: Kenmore Stainless Steel 30" Italian Design Chimney Range Hood (Model 50303)
Microwave: Frigidaire Professional Series Stainless 30" 2.0 cu. ft. Built-in Microwave (FPMO209K)
It'll be awhile before they are actually delivered and installed (one of the last things that's done in the house), but it was good to go ahead and get those decisions locked in.
