Default Getting reviews for appliances

We are bring asked by Monarch to select all our appliances so that they can build the Kitchen according to the appliances' specs. We tried searching for reviews based on manufacturers' numbers, but had little luck. We were wondering if there is a good website where we can look for reviews of appliances. If any one knows a good website, please let us know. Thanks.

epinions.com has some reviews - may not cover all appliance models. consumer reports is good, but won't have all variations and may be out of date for certain models.

As mentioned, Consumer Reports is the common source for this information.

Try your local library branch for back-issues and find the most recent issue that contains appliances.

You could also subscribe to Consumer Reports online for a month right before you order. It's only $5.95 USD.

I subscribe to the online CR and I find it a waste of money. The reviews are for only a handful of appliances that are available in Canada. If you read the user comments on the review pages, you'll see a lot of people complaining about CR's reviews.

There are no good appliance review sites anywhere that I can find. Maybe somebody should start one.

The appliances forum on gardenweb.com is pretty good.
