The gas range finally arrived.
So far, this was the only subject of aggravation in the entire project. The original lead time given to me was 10 weeks and a few weeks before it was to arrive, the lead time doubled to 20 weeks. I could tell you the reason that was given to me, but I doubt it would be factual.
I ended up finding another supplier (AJ Madison) that told me they had the range in their warehouse and could get it to me in a week or two. This was too good to be true. After receiving an automated reply that it was on back order just before scheduled delivery date, I was concerned and called them. A lot. I was on hold for so long so many times and never got a good response However, in retrospect it didn't turn out too bad as they got it to me in about 4 weeks. I think the wait was worth it too.
|I was blown away after inching the range into place and stepping back to see. It's starting to look like a real kitchen.
|The ergonomic control knobs hooked me.
|The Waterstone Gantry Faucet. I splurged on this but it's used everyday so it's worth it.
|The Insinkerator Excel disposal with an air switch (not shown and not sure where it will be installed just yet).
|Panel ready Bosch dishwasher without the panel.
|Hidden dishwasher controls
