    What choice would you make based on best value for their integrated appliances range. Or does 1 stand out head and shoulders above the other for you?

    Thanks.

    For me Bosch by a country mile. I have all Bosch appliances myself as they presented the best value proposition of all the brands.

    Now off my my run.

    Neff for ovens, Miele for dishwashers and Bosch for washing machines. Smeg appliances look great.

    Bosch for us. Built a new house 6 years ago and the wife put Bosch in the kitchen, the butler's pantry and the bar.

    Probably the German influence on my mother's side :) :).

    Keeping or selling?
    Bosch (Low end - made in Turkey / China etc for selling)
    Bosch (High end - made in Germany for keeping)

    Selling mate. Turkey might do as long as they don't differ in look from the German ones.

    We put all Bosch appliances in our new place a few months ago.

    We were told by the salesman to stay away from the bottom of the range Bosch dishwasher, as it had a plastic bottom tray, and he heard of it melting in some cases.
    Mid range is fine, and we are very happy with the appliances, and they look great also.

    Oven and microwave were German, and I'm not sure of the origin of the gas cooktop & dishwasher, but they weren't the bottom of their range, but not the highest either.
    Sorry, I know that doesn't answer your question.
    Model of the dishwasher we got - SMS50M28AU Series 6
    Gas cooktop - PCQ715B90A

    +1 Bosch. Less likely to break and better supported if they do.
    Smeg is probably ok for selling if it's cheaper. People tend to like it for some reason..

    People like Smeg because of a clever marketing campaign a while back. However, expectations didn't live up to the hype, which has tarnished the brand a little. Lot's of people still think it's good though. Personally, I wouldn't touch it.

    OTOH, I love my Turkey built Bosch dishwasher. I have heard bad things about them but mine has been faultless.
