I am getting a new kitchen fitted and need the following:
Integrated full height fridge-freezer (small freezer) or fridge with icebox to fit in a 60cm wide cabinet. Noise levels are important to me and I have found the Liebherr ICUS 3214 and Hotpoint HSZ3022VL, both 37dB. Everything else seems to create 39dB (20% more - sound levels double every 10dB).
Fully integrated slimline dishwasher, not as concerned about noise in this case
but preferably user-friendly for my elderly live-in parent. I have seen Miele (not any specific model) praised on moneysavingexpert forum for their cutlery drawer. Ryder72, a kitchen designer who posts on mse, declared on 13/5/13: "BSH haven't quite perfected the cleaning performance of the VarioDrawer" (he recommends Miele instead). However the G4570 SCVi, the only fully integrated slimline on Miele.co.uk, does not appear to be one of the latest models and has the standard cutlery tray, not the 3D cutlery tray.
An induction hob which can be flush mounted over a 60cm deep cabinet (again preferably user-friendly for my mother in her 80s) - I have only researched this on the Which? website. They rank the Whirlpool ACM 847BA top out of 12 inductions including Siemens EH645TE11E IQ500, Neff T43T20 and T42D20 Series 2, although the Siemens and Neffs were all launched in 2009 and have since been replaced. Which says of the Whirlpool "We like the controls - rather than just plus and minus buttons to set the power, the Whirlpool comes with slide-touch controls that allow you to see exactly how hot each ring is." (The Whirlpool can be mounted flush).
Suggestions, views or any thoughts much appreciated - I am prepared to buy expensive products if they can justify the extra by reliability and longer life.
