What do you cook on at home?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have this one(my baby!!).

http://www.falconappliances.co.uk/308.htm

With two ovens and 5 burner hob it is the best of all worlds for me. It has electric ovens with a gas hob. I know they may seem a bit expensive but I know unless I move abroad i'll never have to buy another cooker. Cooking is my life so I justify it on the basis that people spend far more on other hobbies and don't think twice about it.

Not me. I have a plain stove. Four burners and one oven. White even. ;)

I have a plain, cheap gas stove, white, with four burners and an oven. One day, I'll have the house and kitchen of my dreams!

I'm in my first home, and when I bought it, the kitchen (whole house actually) was just redone, I was the first to use the appliances. Unfortunately, the frugal house flipper purchased some pretty cheap appliances so I have a pretty plain, but works for me "hotpoint" gas stove, 4 burners and an oven. basic controls and timer, that's about it. but it works for me.

I used to cook on an Aga - because that's what my Mum had and what I learned to cook on. But, a couple of years ago, I decided to get rid of the 'English country kitchen' look and had it ripped out - I managed to sell if for not much less than we paid for it, new.

Now I have a 5 burner NEFF gas hob (the wok burner is great) and a double gas oven.

Which leads me to ask the question, why are home ranges limited to 15,000 btu?

Usually residential fire code and insurance issues, then there's always the gas avialability in residential areas. Also with 25,000btu burners you start to need some serious ventilation and serious firewalls.

Our place came with a puddle o'cra* GE gas stove (made in Mexico!) Brings back memories of camping and cooking on a Coleman stove.... Replacing that thing will be on my "round-toit" list for the next decade...

Recently replaced with a GE Profile 5 burner gas stove top oven. The center burner has a replaceable griddle pan. Gods, I keep forgetting to post up before and after pictures of my new kitchen.

I have a Thermador Professional series 48" gas cooktop. Four 15k burners which you can pull the knobs off and there's a little set screw in there that you can use to turn down the flame, which I did for the two back burners for simmering purposes). It also has a 12" grill, and a 12" griddle. The griddle is pretty cool, but I'm not too impressed with the grill. They're both 15K BTU too. SO all in all, this cooktop with everything going full blast is 90K BTU, which is 15K BTU more than my home furnace!

FOr an oven, I have a junky Dacor electric conventional/convection oven, which is on its last legs.

I have a cheap Hotpoint in this rental place I'm in now. The stove is a real POS - the burners are hard to regulate and lots of heat is lost to the surrounding stove top area. The oven dosn't seem to heat much more than 425-deg F, and the broiler, such as it is, is way down at the bottom, so to use it I have to practically get prone on the floor. I could get better results using my camping stove! <NOT LOL>

I have a KitchenAid Architect Series gas range. We've had it for about 1.5 years and I like it a lot. It offers convection settings, bread proofing, etc.

Hopefully, in February I be neck deep in a kitchen renovation which will be the final room to do in our house. After that, it's back to the yard where I hope to build an Argentina style parrilla and wood burning oven!

My whole kitchen is done in the Kitchenaid Architect so-called professional stuff, as that was the only *decent* option offered by the builder.... a built-in six-burner (four 15k, two 6k) gas cooktop, exhaust hood, double electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge.

I can tell you that, although I like this gas cooktop MUCH more than any "ordinary" home cooktops I've had over the years, because of the relatively high-BTU burners, I would never choose Kitchenaid again. Unreliable, hard to clean, lacks durability, etc.

Never want to be without at least 15k-BTU burners or a double electric oven again!

I've a cannon classique 2000. 10 years old, 1 metre wide. Sound like a peice of work, but i have a love hate relationship with it. 4 burners and a griddle, 2 side by side ovens. It looked fabulous when i bought it and i wanted it to always look that way. But it doesnt clean up well unless Bryan gets his power tools out and takes a layer off it. I do love that it has an eye level grill though.
