30" Wolf vs Viking Vs. Capital Culinarian

Quick Update: Through speaking directly with the Chairman of Capital, my order has now been re-instated and the delivery should be by the end of next week. I am VERY impressed with the quick work at rectifying an unfortunate situation by both Capital and the Canadian distributor.

Sadly, I ordered a Culinarian, was promised by the distributor (to my contact) that it'd be delivered in a week. 2 weeks later the distributor said he has NO IDEA when it'll be available in Ontario for a delivery. Therefore, I have cancelled my order and have now missed the rebate for Wolf. I'm not a happy man

I think I've decided on the Culinarian actually. It was a tough choice but since I am keeping my current stove in the basement, I'll have an electric oven that is a nice size available to me still.

I liked the open burner with very high BTU option afforded by the Culnarian vs the Wolf.

I haven't really considered induction to be honest. I currently have a Jenn-Air electric flat top and hate how easily it scratches (though it is very easy to clean). I understand induction is much better than the electric flat tops but I've been so turned off on them that I want something different. I've always loved gas cooking.

I have a Jenn-Air hood above the stove that is more than adequate for a gas range according to the specs. That part of it I considered.

Thanks though as I'm sure it is overlooked quite often

I've been doing research for weeks and am just having trouble pulling the trigger ;)

Thanks. I've read about every post on here dealing with these ranges and still can't make up my mind. I'm leaning towards Capital or Wolf at this point.

Hi. I have 2 days to make the following decisions (due to great rebates available)

1) Wolf 304 ($4000 Canadian plus tax) or the Viking VGCC530-4BSS ($3500 Canadian plus tax or the Culinarian ($4500 Canadian)?

2) Dual Fuel of All-Gas? I will be keeping my current Jenn-Air Electric stove in the basement so I will have an electric oven which is why I am thinking to go All Gas for the oven. Increase in cost for dual fuel is around $1000.

3) Open or Sealed Burners? I'm leaning towards open burners based on cooking patterns and they don't seem too difficult to clean

Concerns: I want the ability to simmer on at least one burner in a small pot and don't want a difficult stove to clean (stove-top or oven). Thinking a self-cleaning oven would be ebst suited for me.

I was offered a Dual Fuel Electrolux Icon range for around $2100 Canadian but I haven't heard much about it and am guessing it is a far inferior range to the two mentioned above.

Thoughts?
