The Bosch appliances are not cheap. BUT they are worth every penny. They are hard to find used and in good shape, but it would be worth it to start looking as soon as you can. We bought ours new with no regrets. We bought the dishwasher-refrigerator-stove-microwave all at the same time from a local dealer so scored a good price. I like that they all match and have the same high quality. The stove is so much better looking in my opinion than any other stove. It works well and in the three years I've had it, used every day, it has never given us a moment's trouble. We did buy the protection plan or whatever, save the money chances are you won't need it! My husband has always used Bosch brand power tools so he was attracted to the known quality of Bosch stuff. I like the stainless steel look, they look awesome in our kitchen. I would use Bosch again & recommend to a friend. Bosch is totally quality, buy with confidence.
