My 45" Jennair cooktop is 32 years old and looks a bit tired. A new one from
Sears costs $ 1300 plus shipping. I was shocked at the high price because it
is really only the shell of the cooktop. Maybe I am out of touch with
appliance prices. Does anyone know of any discount outlets for things like
cook tops? I am looking for a Jenn-Air model JED 8345.
Thanks for any input.
AJ Madison for whatever reason returns a competitively priced selection
but you're right. The cost of affixing four, six (or eight? 45" really?)
to a piece of steel does not compute to the manufacturing cost.
Even doubling the cost from wholesale to retail....
Mine was off ebay. It wasn't half the cost of retail and I happened to
find someone that was willing to make their loss my gain.
You can try craigs list too.
Now go look at Viking and Wolf and see how much they want

I found a brand new Kitchenaid double oven on Ebay for less than half
what it would cost retail, ie $1300 vs $2800. The unit was a floor model,
but never used. I was a bit concerned about whether it had a warranty or
not, so I also bought a SquareTrade warranty, think it was 3 years for
~$70. Unit was perfect and 3 years later, still working fine.
But you do need to have some experience on Ebay and know what you're doing.
Three places I've bought from
For big stuff, the freight often is a deal killer, but for others, you
can still save a bundle. Sometimes the best deal is the store down
the street. Sears is the last place I'd buy.
bought kitchenaid frdige, ?? washer dryer
about 60% of big box stores and forget HD Lowes etc
free shipping, no tax, always reach a person, just like walking in, but
didn't have to go there.
well, not the whole kitchen. 45" threw me off. You can go smaller, and
just fill in the gaps on either side. but sears direct offered a
"reconditioned" one for $700.
I like Sears and don't like most retailers. You could order it to the
store, return it as not needed, then go back the next day when they have
it on the floor greatly marked down in price. err, you might want to
choose a shill for some of those visits to sears...
