If you have space, then I suggest you keep the existing one and get another 250L, 350L or 450L refrigerator (what ever the home ministry fancies, you will soon run out of space any way). Two is always better than one - one for daily use one for medium to long term storage. Once you have two, you will be wondering how you managed with only one so long

Two also means that in case one blows you have some capacity. With modern refrigerators it is the electronics which blows due to bad power, and not the compressor motor. Getting a spare electronics module is both expensive and time consuming.

Which of these two would be a better option - 1) A combi microwave oven 2) Solo oven + OTG.
Requirements - Oven would be used for reheating, defrosting and other basic stuff. OTG would be used only for non veg dishes(read chicken).

As of now i have zeroed in on Morphy richards OTG and a Samsung solo. The cost comes upto 11k. Should i go ahead with this or am i better of buying a single combi oven for my needs ? If so which one ?

I have purchased a LG microwave (MW+grill+convection) about 6 months back. But most of the time, the oven is used only for reheating leftovers. The grill and convection modes are used only once in a bluemoon.

Grill+Convection feature is generally available in bigger capacity models only.

Still, a single combi appliance occupies less space as compared to a solo oven + OTG.

If you have space available for 2 separate appliances, you may go for it. Cost-wise, it works out roughly the same.

If you have adequate space in your kitchen, you can go for solo + OTG as OTG gives better results in grilling than combi oven.

If you are not much into grilling and kitchen space is a constraint, go for combi oven.

I have used a microwave for the last 13 years (lots of different ones). In my opinion, for most people who own microwaves in India & abroad, the main use of a microwave is to reheat leftover food.

I am looking for model F419BLQ. It is less than 350L but it has water dispenser. Which I think is usable during summer and rainy season. It has bottom freezer as well. It will cost me ~35K.

When I went to LG Store this model is not available for display. Anybody using this model? If yes, please provide feedback for same.

Most of the latest models from LG isn't available anywhere in Bangalore. I checked for a few models and no one has even heard of it. The LG shoppe also had no clue about the latest launches.

I finally decided on this model of Samsung : RT59FBSL - OVERVIEW | SAMSUNG India . Most places were offering the same price of 53k and no discounts either. Suits my needs and was released last year in November is what I was told.

Bottom freezer model was not available and they said only one piece is there in go-down. I denied it. I went for model LG - 408YSQ4 (390 Litres) LG GL-408YSQ4 Double Door Refrigerator - 390 Litres Frost Free Refrigerator with Green Ion Door Cooling Technology - LG Electronics IN from LG Shoppe at Pai Layout, Old Madras Road.

They delivered it immediately in the evening on Saturday.

Hi Folks,
We are in the process of building a new kitchen from scratch and have gone in for a modular setup using Hettich products. Now we need to pick up the following in built components:
1. Three burner Hob
2. Chimney
3. Oven
4. Dishwasher

Checked out the usual suspects like Faber, IFB and Kaff but not sure which one to pick. Looking for high quality components that won't fail on us with a nice stainless steel finish. Budget is roughly 1L. Would be great to get feedback and recommendations. Thanks!

Past 2.5 years, I'm using Elica hob and chimney in my kitchen. No problem faced till date and both are working fine. Yes, I also have 3 burner hob at my home and Elica has some good models.

Faber, Kaff etc also have three burner hobs but it is small in size (impractical) and in square shape and not usable with all three burners. I selected Elica, it is actually rectangular one and at the same time all three burners can be used.

Refer this page of Elica: http://www.elicaindia.com/product-sh.../built-in-hobs

Hi Vcash,

I am also looking at Hettich for my kitchen. Could you please let me know the total cost for the modular kitchen. My apartment is still under construction, so is there anything that needs to be considered so that installation will be easy?

I have one Faber Cooking range, one Hob and one Chimney 9Hood) for over a decade. Very satisfied. My son bought a 4-burner table top hob from them. Again excellent. In the newer units they have replaced the mains powered ignition with a battery one (handier due to power cuts). I have also just ordered their 9213 dishwasher with another order with finish for the detergent, salt and shine.

Thanks for the suggestion but it seems that Elica does not have a sales or support network in Jsr. Incidentally, the other brands now have rectangular hobs.

The channels start at around 2k per set. By the time you consider granite, ply, labor and tiles it will work out to about Rs. 4500 to Rs. 5000 per square foot. You can get ready made modular setups for under 4500 psf but then quality can get a bit suspect. Biggest problem is that the premade guys use MDF boards which don't have a shelf life (pun intended) of more than 4 to 5 years. My only tip to you would be to invest in good quality marine ply if you decide to get the kitchen built.

Hearing good things about Faber all around. Probably getting the hob and chimney from them. Still undecided on the dishwasher and oven - the sales guy in Jsr does not have support for these products yet. Thinking of getting IFB Sine they are well established but heard very average things about the Neptune DX model. Any other suggestions?

@vcash; I will avoid IFB like the plague. Their service used to be good, but is now atrocious. I used them for over a decade but no more.
