Wife and I purchased a new home for the family, we're renovating the kitchen immediately at possession. I am looking to build in a 36" Gas Range-top (I'd do induction but the wife loves the commercial/industrial look of the SS range-tops, and nobody makes an induction range-top in this style that I've seen). Looking at a 4burner+griddle config.
I was originally looking at KitchenAid, figured that was a good compromise between price & function, except I cannot find a review of their range-tops ANYWHERE.
Are they good quality? Has anyone used them and had reliability issues?
How about Jenn-Air? I was told they are the same manufacturer and JA is the higher-end branding. Everywhere I read, people hate the downdraft JA, but I won't need that feature, I'll have a hood, are the JA range-tops good if you're not using the Downdraft?
And yes, I'd love to go Wolf, but I might not be able to afford that.
