Advice and an extra

Pretty boys

First, seeking advice: I'm starting to look into new appliances.  Anyone have any thoughts?  Any brand/model you love/hate/would avoid like the plague because it self-destructed the minute the warranty was up?  Any stores you love/hate/would avoid like the plague because they're ridiculously expensive/have sucky return policies/offer crappy warranties/selection sucks?

And by "appliances," I mean washer/dryer, refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher.  (I think that's it.)

Second, I've been iconing 9 Chickweed Lane and managed to get these four in sequence:


Like mother, like daughter, no?  (::giggle::)

(Oh, and if you want 'em, snag 'em--just comment, credit and no hotlinking, please.)

Merciful mother of Mogg! Talk about a diabolical progression! One thing I love about Brooke's work, especially over at Chickweed - his characters are the antithesis of flat. Wait, did I just say that? I meant, they're well-rounded. Uh! I mean! Aw, shucks, you know what I'm trying to say...

I hate Sears, but that's more for Brady Bunch-related reasons and they usually have decent-enough deals on appliances.

Also, I just moved to a house that has an LG washer and dryer and it is SO COOL and I LOVE IT.

Have to keep that in mind!

Didn't see the advice bit. Seconded what Polkadotsnplaid said... we had a Miele set, absolutely phenomenal machines. Computerized to the extent that they would just about make coffee for you. You end up getting what you pay for, I'd definitely explore the high-end stuff. In fact, if you're serious about a number of appliance purchases, it might be well worth the $30.00 or so that a temporary subscription to Consumerreports.com would cost you - I've done that every time I bought a car, and it ended up saving me thousands of dollars, much time and much hassle.

Good luck!

That's two to look at....

With either of the townhouses I'm looking at (I currently live in an apartment), I'm going to have to be "serious about a number of appliance purchases." One place doesn't have any kitchen appliances and the other ... well, all of the appliances look like they're older than I am.

Hence, soliciting advice. :D
