Any recommendations on a free standing, five burner gas range?

Tks, Adrian

Oh, FIVE burners. Mister Fancy.

30" or 36"?

How about a Viking or DCS?

Mike will be along shortly to recommend something you've never heard of, can't afford, but want desperately.

30"....Viking ranges are beautiful Tom, but they're a little pricey. We're looking at $3000.00 or less, approx....the GE Cafe line looks pretty nice so far.

We got a GE Profile dual-fuel range (with only four measly burners) years ago, and that thing has been just great. Electric convection oven and gas cooktop. It's not exactly commercial-quality convection, though.

How about restaurant surplus?

Tom, do you prefer the dual fuel option vs all gas in hindsight?

Adrian, why even talk to him, that four-burner peon!

We have the Kitchen Aid 6 burner dual fuel (propane top / convection electric with steam assist oven) and love it. Right now electric is cheaper than gas so it works for us. The window holding the digital display didn't hold up to the cleaning we do and I had to epoxy the window and display mechanism into the SS cover frame after five years of hard use - but other than that it's been a work horse.

We have an all gas Whirlpool Gold that came with the current house. (About a year and a half old) We love the gas cooktop, but hate the gas oven. It's amazing how much control you gain with the burners, and how much you lose with the oven. I should actually throw a thermometer in to see how much of a temperature swing it has. If we were to buy one, it would definitely be a dual fuel.

I like the electric oven. It is dryer and more precise than gas. I don't know how you could do meringues in a gas oven. Also, I just don't have confidence in gas fueled top broilers. We're not bakers, so the allure of adjusting the humidity is limited for us. Even if we did want that, I've heard that humid ovens tend to deteriorate more quickly. Sounds like Scott has more experience with that concept than I do.

I kind of like "four burner peon" though.

We do ALOT of cooking and actually considered an 8 burner or two, 4 burner (peon wink ) stoves next to each other - which would have been significantly cheaper. We've only used the steam thing once. We've also found that meringues in this climate are tough as the average humidity is over 80%.
