I am renovating my kitchen in my NYC apt. First time shopping for appliances. I am shopping for a 30-in gas cooktop, don't need really high BTU's, but must simmer well (I make a lot of sauces and custards). I see that Bluestar is reviewed well here but can I do w/o a hood? For the electric wall oven, I'm looking for convection and self-clean features, in 27 or 30-in. I'm also looking for brands that can be easily repaired in Manhattan. Thanks!
I'm looking for a restaurant in Denver, CO near the convention center for 3/1 night. We'll probably be a party of 3-4. We like all cuisines but would also like something unique to Denver. Budget is in the moderate range. Thanks!
