Kitchen Appliances–HELLO IKEA!!!

Kitchen Appliances–HELLO IKEA!!!

I am ecstatic right now!  Seriously, I’ve been stalking Ikea’s website for months waiting for a kitchen sale to pop up.  I read some Ikea message boards that said they usually have a kitchen sale between March and May every year.  Well, March 2nd the sale was announced!!!

Here’s the deal:

SPEND $3500 or more SAVE 10%

SPEND $4500 or more SAVE 20%

The appliances in our kitchen are original to the house.  That means they’re from 1987. They at least work, but they just don’t work efficiently AT ALL.

I browsed appliances all over.  I’ve always wanted a beautiful Wolf range, but let’s face it, that’s WAY out of our price range.

I was at Ikea one day and saw a beautiful range that had the look I was going for.  I researched Ikea appliances and read many reviews –

.  To my surprise, most of the reviews were wonderful!  The appliances are actually Whirlpool appliances with Ikea’s design.  So my mind was made up and I just waited and waited for a sale to come along.

The sale ends at the end of April, so we’ll purchase the appliances by then.  It may be a couple more months before we actually tackle the kitchen though.  We’ve got to save the moolah for that one!

Without further ado, here are the pieces that we’ll be making a part of our home soon enough!

The built in microwave oven: The built in wall oven:

The BEAUTIFUL gas range with convection oven (oh yes, that means I’ll have TWO ovens!):

The hood for over the range:


Lastly, the dishwasher:

All of these pieces together total $4,645.  Even at that price, it’s a great deal for what you get…especially when you compare them to other Whirlpool products.  BUT, we’re so not paying full price!

With the 20% discount for spending over $4,500 (just barely!) our total will come to $3,716 + tax!!!  That’s a $926 SAVINGS!!!  Seriously, how awesome is that?  I’m so excited and can’t wait to get my hands on these!

It is my goal, that by the end of this year, we will have a completed kitchen.

*fingers crossed*

    • They have been great for us! The oven range top is fantastic, but the oven itself could be better. It doesn’t have a timer on it which I find weird, and the knobs take some getting used to. BUT, the wall oven and microwave are great and I haven’t had any issues with any of them.

      • What model is your Ikea oven? It’s taken me years to find an image of the same oven we have, and yours appears to be identical to ours. For service, I don’t know what to tell the repairman about model. Do you remember the model number?

  1. I have read many negative comments regarding IKEA wall ovens all made by Whirlpool There have been reliability and poor service issues…has anyone owned these over a period of years who can comment

    • Our Ikea whirlpool wall oven 30 inch stainless Nutid wall oven locked up door and blew all thermal fuses and also relays on motherboard. Parts alone are costing over 400 and next we have to hire an appliance repair company because wall oven is still dead. It’s a piece of junk. Complaints about self cleaning feature breaking this appliance, are all over Internet. Wish I’d done my homework. Both Whirlpool and Ikea refuse responsibility. I spent 20,000.00 on a complete kitchen at Ikea. Disgraceful customer service! Will never again spend my money on whirlpool products or Ikea products.

      • I used the self-clean before we moved and it did the exact same thing. Thankfully ours was within the 5 year warranty and they came and fixed it at zero cost to me. The repair guy said this happens all the time with whirlpool appliances…said not to use the self-clean but for only 30 minutes?!?! That’s ridiculous. Although that was my first and only problem with any of the appliances, I’m not getting Ikea appliances again this time around.

        • Thanks for the review on these. We are renovating our kitchen as well and looking at the Ikea Nutid Electric Slide-In Range. I am still on the fence with Ikea appliances, but now that you are 4 years in, how do you feel about them? Would you recommend them or should I stay away?

          • We actually moved a year ago…so I can only hope they’re still holding up! The only issue we had was using the self-clean feature…it blew a spark plug and we had to get maintenance to come fix it. The guy said this is common with all whirlpool ovens, so who knows.

  2. Don’t use the self cleaning ‘feature’ on your IKEA/Whirlpool oven! Blows the oven up. Ours lasted two days and now we’ve been five weeks without an oven. Neither IKEA nor Whirlpool seems to care. They’re cheap but you get what you pay for. I’ll never purchase a Whirlpool product again. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Check out the Internet reviews. It’s happening to everyone!

  3. I have owned an Ikea/Whirlpool oven and hob for the past 8-10 years. I can tell you that although they both still work, the label icons had worn off by the 3rd year. I can live with this because i was familiar with where they would have been but it would be very difficult for someone if they inherit the kitchen.

    ~I have heard similar stories from other people with appliances from Ikea. This is something they need to address.

  4. Emily, thanks for the article and personal details about how the appliances have been working so far.

    It seems that lots of people have questions about IKEA appliances, but love the look, the guarantee that they’ll fit with IKEA cabinets, and the 5-year warranty. We just created an exhaustive guide to every single IKEA appliance. It includes reviews, prices, and suggestions on when to buy the Whirlpool, Maytag, or Amana-branded versions of the same items. I hope everyone here finds this helpful. Happy to take questions / suggestions.

  5. Sadly after a few years the inner glass to the oven door exploded into tiny shards.

    I need the oven number or product code to either – so as to source a new glass through IKEA or independently.

    Can anyone help me, please.
