Consumer Reports sucks, too.  I bought appliances based on their recommendation 
and have been sorry ever since.  (GE came highest in quality when I was 
purchasing.  NEVER AGAIN!)

Kitchen Aid, Bosch, Maytag.  (In that order, in my opinion, though my opinions 
may be out of date.)  Even a low-end of one of these will be better than the 
high-end that GE can build.
