HELP! finally have two nickels to rub together - buying a new range

You folks ROCK! Thanks for all the good guidance. I'm going to do a tour - just because the kids and spouse WON'T want to come ;-) This is my nerd-festival.
PS - Just got approval for the construction loan. I'm going to be able to build my dream house - credit union financing, LEED-plat certified, salvage and local materials....

HELP! finally have two nickels to rub together - buying a new range

Thanks for the great guidance - it's helping. Thinking about a Blue Star for a few reasons - built w/in 60 miles of our place (we are doing a major renovation and looking to keep much of our materials sourced w/in 100 miles or salvaged), seems that folks are pretty happy with them, I've got time to look for a deal (build starts in Feb/March 2013). Any thoughts on Blue Star?

HELP! finally have two nickels to rub together - buying a new range

Hello Friends!

I need advice on buying a new gas range. FINALLY GETTING MY DREAM KITCHEN!! (I'm a little excited.) I've been limping along with a broken gas range (only 3 burners work - sort of) and 30" of counter top in a kitchen that has 7 doors and a window...for 9 years I've been doing this and saving my $$!

I cook everything from scratch (we have food allergies), can't imagine cooking with anything but gas (HATE ELECTRIC), I cook for my family every night, not looking for a bunch of gadgets and electronics, more interested in a sturdy tool that will last 30+ years. Not a big baker - I make the occasional muffins & cookies. I'm looking at a 30" or 36" - most likely 4 burners, but I might get crazy and go for 6.

So, what say ye, O Wise Home Cooks? What gas range would you recommend?
