I need help re; Wall ovens

I can only buy a mid priced wall oven. I picked out a Jenn-Air but am now hearing that that brand has high repair problems. Jenn-Air, Kitchen Aid or GE and GE profile what is the better brand to go with? Should it be a convection oven. Also what about dishwashers? I need help.

  1. I have had my GE Profile Dual Wall Ovens for over 10 years and have never had a single problem with them. The top oven is regular/convection and the lover oven is just regular. They are both self cleaning. The only complaint I have is they are a little small. My large Calphalon roaster doesn't fit, not does my largest sheet cake pan, so I would suggest taking your cookware to make sure it fits.

    1. I have a GE double oven (microwave and regular) which I've had for about 5 years. Never had any problems-- very happy with it.

      1. We got a Kitchenaid "superba" last year & it's been good. It is electric & 24 inches. I was worried this might be small but I can roast turkeys and all my pans fit. It's a regular/convection oven on top, regular on the bottom; both have a broiler. The lower element in each oven is built into the floor which seems smart to me. Some people swear by convection. I never had one before. It's fine but I could live without it.

        The repairman who told me that my old oven was dead, and who was not selling me anything, told me that most 24-inch ovens are low-end equipment sold for landlords to put in apartments, and he thought the only reliable one is the Kitchenaid.

        For dishwashers, Bosch has a fine rep and ours has been good for 9 years.
