Nancy and Jake also discussed the history of Thermador and some of the appliances they invented and also introduced the new appliances for 2021.

General Advice for making appliance purchase decision.

  • You should be selecting appliances very early in the design process and be ready to make a down payment on your appliances and verify that your appliances are ordered with your dealer.
  • Make sure to provide the dealer with updates as your project progress as to when you’ll need the appliances so they can make sure appliances will be available.
  • For many, COVID is over but the economic effects will be here to stay for many years to come without a significant drop in demand appliances. Many manufacturer’s will be having price increases.
  • So the moral is order your appliances as early as possible, up to 4-5 months and earlier for most major appliance brands or be prepared to take whatever your dealer can get
