We are remodeling the kitchen. A relative is paying for it but he doesn’t want us to get fancy stuff. Just basic normal good stuff. Fridg. , dishwasher and double oven. What do you recommend. We are doing contemporary design.

Please do not choose basic appliances based on design. Try to look up appliances with great track records for working well and minimizing repairs. Sales people in some stores are very honest still these days and help you choose wisely. Where are you located? Maybe we can direct you to a good and honest place to get advice?
Todays appliances are repair prone and not made like they used to be so this is very important.
You will want to know what features are most important to your specific usage habits too.

Frigidaire Gallery has a decent line. We end up getting their French door fridge, oven, dishwasher and convection microwave oven. They all came in smufegproof stainless steel and look very nice.

I chose to put in two ovens rather than a double oven. This way both are at a height I like and also if one breaks one still works.

I like my kitchenaide ovens and my bosch dishwasher. I have the kenmore fridges from sears which I heard are actually made by frigidaire but labeled with Sear's brand and cheaper price. And I love the french door rather than side by side. Can fit large platters in easily.

I chose two wall ovens one one on top of the other. Is it a good choice?

Nobody needs two dishwashers Smile personally I would do one meat one Pareve but it really depends what you cook and how much space and budget you have to work with.

I mean should I have two dishwashers. Is it a good investment and a good use of space in a not large kitchen?

Only you can determine your dishwasher needs.

I cook mostly milchigs but I have a fleishig dishwasher because the bulk dishes with limited washing ability happens on shabbos.

My milchig dishes gets washed as they get used, the same ones over and over, as opposed to pulling out more and more like we do on Shabbos.

You need to decide:do you loathe washing dishes to the extent that you just don't and they pile up?

I for one would not waste space on 2 dishwashers in a small kitchen because that represents a lot of cabinet space to be giving up. Only you can decide.

We also cook very little milchig and got one meaty dishwasher. There was no need to waste great cabinet space for a second washer.

Are you expanding your kitchen or using the space you have? If it’s the same space and you’ve been using all your cabinets think about whether you can afford to lose one. It also doesn’t sound like you’d use it much if you rarely cook milchigs unless you go through a lot of dishes for breakfasts and lunch.

Regarding a dishwasher ask your lor. We were told we can have one dishwasher and use it for meat and dairy.

If I could have two dishwashers then I would definitely use the second one for parve as I do a lot of baking.
If I was doing two wall ovens I would put them side by side rather than one on top of the other. That’s just my preference.
