Pro Versus Regular

You want a new gas range and why not? It was three cars ago since you replaced the old one.The new ranges have at least 40-50% more BTUs(or heat) than the older ones, have a convection feature(fan forced heat, more even cooking) and a warming drawer or second oven option.

There are, however, more options to choose than ever. So lets look at 2 more popular styles.

The Wolf Pro. Perhaps one of the best ranges on the market with 3 15,000 BTU burners and a simmer rating of 500 BTU. It has clock and timer and two convection fans in an electric oven for improved circulation. At a price over $5000, it is on the high end.

Wolf Pro Range

The JennAir Pro. Jenn air has one burner at 16,000 BTU, another at 15,000 and a dedicated simmer burner as well. The JennAir is an all gas oven and also has a warming drawer, which maintains foods in a low temperature without dehydrating and refreshes leftovers as well...The JennAir has a price tag of just over $2100

Jenn-Air Pro-Style Range

The Wolf has the better burners and with convection fans will probably cook more evenly. However, JennAir, like most traditional manufacturers, are quietly catching up to the Pros

In other words, you do not have to spend a fortune to buy a very likeable product

In the next week, we will look at less expensive, yet decent products
