6 burners vs. 4 + griddle

I have a 48" BlueStar with six burners and a griddle. I seldom use the griddle, could easily do without it. The BlueStar is less expensive but performs well. It is open burner and is so easy to clean.

Sealed vs non-sealed burners

I have had a BlueStar for several years now. It cost a lot less than most gas ranges. It is performing well. It is open burner and I can take the grates and the burner guards off and put them in the dishwasher and simply clean the tray underneath. I have the 48" one which has a small & a large oven. I cook a lot and this range is a workhorse. The ovens are gas also, which some people don't like but I have had no problems with them. The oven sizes are perfect for the holidays. The little one is great during the week when it just my husband and me.
I just visited a friend this weekend who has sealed burners and they hate cleaning it.

Boy no wonder I chose the name I did, I didn't get the 36" BlueStar I got the 48" BlueStar. I guess I was still suffering from jetlag!! Anyway it is a fantastic stove and believe it or not I can actually cook...

Sorry just read all the info, have been on vacation. Food is Italy was super! After my question in 2008 I bought a lovely 36" BlueStar and absolutely love it!! Besides open burners one of my decisions was also that I could get the split (large/small) oven. The small one is super for a side dish or something when it's just me and my husband.
The big one is really great for holidays and parties. Burners, etc are a snap to clean.

Thanks very much, I'm going to be purchasing a new gas range and that was one thing I just didn't understand.

What is the difference between sealed burners and non-sealed burners on a gas range and which is better?
