Gas Ranges/Ovens

Looking at upgrading kitchen and getting a new gas range/oven. What are good brands that are reliable both for range and oven? What are bad brands to avoid? How big of a BTU big burner does one need? 15k, 18k, 20k? In the case of 48 inch ranges/ovens that have dual ovens is it possible to find one that has a smaller oven that can fit a 18" x 13" half baking sheet? What else do you look for or watch out for in regards to gas ranges/ovens. Please no electric or induction discussion.

    buying a frickhuge burner is pointless if the natural gas line running to your kitchen won't handle it. tearing the frick out of your walls so you can larp you're the world's only sober line cook is moronic. You don't need it.

        anything over 14k is gonna need a bigger than standard vent hood too so keep that in mind
        I happen to know a homosexual who installed a 100k btu wok burner and it turns the entire house into an inferno of heat and peanut oil

          >anything over 14k is gonna need a bigger than standard vent hood too so keep that in mind
          is this just the strength of the fan in the hood? Or does there need to be bigger flue space? Some of the stoves I've been looking at have not 100k BTU crazy burners but like 20k 22k, and can come with a wok ring. And that did look interesting. I think my current burner biggest burner is only like 14k BTU.

    I've had a Wolf for around 12 years, it's good but they're frankly overpriced.

    I would still buy another if it came down to it, but i'd probably shop around for a good deal on a display model or something.

      I've heard good things about Wolf, but what makes it good compared to other stoves/ovens? Is it the stove component, or the Oven component or both?

        They're just pretty solidly built, nice tihcc/heavy cast grates, big heavy duty hobs, thicc red dials/buttons.

        They've got pretty high BTU output burners and can hold a nice low flame when needed. Oven heats up quickly/evenly, though mine is a bit hot (about 15-20 degrees over the dial temp).

        There are better options for more money, but Wolf is already getting into dumb money territory. Spending $6-8k+ on a standard 4 burner range and single oven is just not a great value at the end of the day.

          yeah I'm not sure I want to spend that much, for a 4 burner, and I'm thinking of getting a 6 burner plus griddle so I'm assuming for Wolf that would be $15k plus.

            >15k plus
            16.5 for the 48" 6 burner + griddle.

            There are larger 60" 6 burner + double griddle or griddle + charbroiler but those are closer to $20k

        Check out Hollman or bluestar if you're into that style

          Bluestar is probably a little too pricey for me, but Hallman looks pretty nice, thanks for the recommendation.

      Depends on the grates, generally you should hand wash.

    My parents have a Wolf range in their house and they love it. I've cooked on it a few times while visiting and can confirm that it's pretty good. My only complaint is that the simmer s on setting he smallest burner is unreliable, and will sometimes go out if you're not careful.

    So I wasn't aware that Duel Fuel ranges were a thing. They use gas for the stovetop, but electric for the oven. Are there any significant differences between a gas oven and an electric oven?

      Gas is higher humidity which can sometimes matter. Electric heat is drier.

    My house came with a Samsung range, runs on propane. 5 burners, ranging from little simmer burner to "wok", with a big center one. Also has some sort of griddle overlay I have yet to mess with. So far no issues with it, I cook on it regularly and love it. Bit of a pain to clean compared to glass tops, but not all that bad really, electric was worse to clean.

    It does have this weird dual split oven shit, and I hate it. I removed the divider and use it as a normal oven only. The split oven function just didn't work for whatever reason, and I do not care to sort out why.

    Key thing is make sure the hood is vented outside. Do not get scammed with a non-vented hood, they do NOTHING. It will just send the smoke right into the house.

      ahh I had heard about this. It should be find because the current oven hood has a flue that leads to the roof, so I'm assuming new appliances can just use that flue.

      I'm looking for a 48 inch one, I currently have a range similar to yours and the 4 burners makes a lot of cooking really crowded.

    Rules of thumb, the fewer features, the more reliable it'll be.
    Don't get ovens with a bunch of qol features.

      I just watched a video that talked about that. Which is why I think I will just go with all gas for both range and oven. Apparently the Dual Fuel ranges have a much higher rate of needing servicing in the first year. Though the idea of having a steam cook function in the oven did sound kind of neat. I think just gas burners for range and oven will just be fewer things that can go wrong.

        I bought a fridgidare with a steam function. I think dual fuel would be the best of both worlds. I think anything with electronic circuit boards is more prone to failure. Hard not to find a range with all manual controls that's not a 5k+ pro model. Look for something with true convection.
