Best place in the GTA for higher end appliances?

Building a new home and need to start looking at appliances. I've only had experience with mid-range products from your typical big box retailers other than a Miela washer/dryer I purchased from the warehouse sale a few years ago.

I'm familiar with the bigger names like Tasco, Caplan, but is there any other places I should be looking at or avoiding? Budget is ~$10-$12k for a fridge to give you an idea of what we're looking for.

I've just started appliance hunting for the first time, so I might not be the best person to post. But I did go to Goeman's recently. They also carried Miele and other such brands. The salesperson even disclosed that despite the commission, he didn't think such appliances were really necessary lol -- but he's happy to sell it to you if you like the style.

I also looked to Best Brand Appliances, but through virtual chat. Got quick responses on questions I had, such as service availability. An example of a brand they carried was Fisher and Paykel.

I can't comment on any full experience -- still new to the world of appliances. Hope that gives you other options!

Appliance Canada is the only other place you didn't list. $10-12k will get a mid-range built in fridge. The only thing built-in fridge has going for it, imo, is the look. Reliability and interior space falls in the average to poor range, typically. They're really overpriced for what they do.

i completely agree. I was looking for a built-in fridge and I really couldn't justify the cost. It's wild how much of a premium it is. I don't quite understand why it's so much more. A free standing fridge was less than half the cost of a built-in fridge.

I left them off because of that horrible feedback thread in the shopping forum. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of choice when starting to look at appliances in the $5000+ range.

Personally, I love the look of a huge stainless steel industrial looking fridge in the kitchen, but then again I do most (all) of the cooking in the family so functionality is more important too me. Too bad the wife and our designer dont see it that way. :rolleyes:
