Yes, Porter&Charles are the standard appliances for M5V, it is not an optional upgrade, that is why I was asking about the quality. It comes with gas cooktop, separate oven and dishwasher. The refrigerator is different as Porter&Charles does not produce refrigerators. the refrigerator for M5V is Amana (stainless steel bottom freezer)are you sure about that ... i thought that was for the optional upgrade?
Actually, now that I've had it for a few months, I kind of like it. It's not bad at all. When the oven is on, the oven fan makes a funny noise, but otherwise I like the range.I just moved into a new unit here in Vancouver with a P&C Range. The stove top on its hottest burner can barely cook stir fry. The oven is no better. I miss my induction cook top European rubbish. Would not recommend.
