How meticulous are you about wiping up after spills? Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top Franke says. Smoothtops also require a special cleaner. If you re not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils which are inexpensive and easy to replace or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can t leak down underneath.
Another overlooked fact: consider your home s resale value. If you re going to the expense of including high-end grills surfaces and appliances outside don t neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don t forget to include comfortable seating.
