Brand/model recommendations...

Hello,

We're on the market for a new Stove and Dishwasher. Our budget is limited however. We do like to cook alot and have always used our old dishwashers, so decent ones of each are important to us.

We've considered buying used appliances as long as they're in decent condition and justifyable/worth buying.

1) If you were on the market to buy a used dishwasher and stove what brands would you consider and models?
2) Also, what criteria would you use when choosing used appliances? How can we avoid poorly treated appliances?
3) Are we fools to even consider used or should we just bite the bullet and buy new? If so, which brands/models should we consider?

Thanks!!

which brands?

Lets keep it simple. You want cheap, but you dont want garbage. You want to check on used, but you dont want something beat up. Here is my recommendations.

1. Two recommendations for Dishwashers. Whirlpool or Maytag. These are by far the most reliable dishwashers out there. As far as used, IF you could these used(but not too used!) and at an affordable price, buy it. What you will find however is that most of the used stuff is G.E. which is junk.

2. Stoves. Here again I would recommend Whirlpool. But I would only recommend it with the following conditions: Make sure that ANY stove you buy that if it has a digital display, that the bake/broil is controlled by a separate switch and NOT controlled by the touch button display. The reason for this is that if the digital display or control board goes bad, you lose your bake and broil. Whereas if it is on a separate switch, all you lose is you display. And these displays go bad all the time on ALL makes and models.

If you dont mind an older stove, then by all means buy a model with the typical burners on top(not glass top) and simple switches. These older models will outlast anything on the market today.
