How much do you really use your oven? Very few people are really going to use an oven to complete capacity Franke says so those extra cubic feet might not be that important. Some ovens have racks that divide so you can cook a standing rib roast and then put in a half rack for your biscuits or sweet potatoes.
If you re just putting up with stainless steel when you d prefer a pro-grade stove with some color consider Lacanche s double-oven commercial stoves."They have excellent features you wouldn t find in the typical American oven like dual fuel and a warming oven for people who really want to cook says Linda Applewhite an interior designer in Sausalito Calif."Here on the West Coast we re seeing a trend towards French stoves and one of the reasons is that they re professional-looking and also come in all these great enamel colors."
The cooktops provide a number of benefits Fisher Knott notes. Foremost is safety especially in homes with children since there is no heat on the cooking surface only in the pan. Energy consumption can be cut by 10 percent to 20 percent by using an induction cooktop rather than a more conventional type of stove again since only the pan is heated according to a study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.
Another beautiful somewhat universal choice for a sleek kitchen counter setup is a great knife block. Sharp knives are a chef s most important tool (from what I hear!) so a chic block is a necessity if you want to add some glam to your countertop.
There are only two drawbacks to consider. The first is pricing which tends to run approximately 20 percent higher than more conventional stoves she estimates. But she has found that for most clients especially in the mid- to upper-end kitchens that incremental addition isn t a deal-breaker."Most clients are looking to upgrade their kitchens when they remodel and they are looking for better performance rather than the cheapest price. I ve never found induction cooktops to be a hard sell when they see what they provide."
While online restaurant supply houses bring in goods from splatter covers and barbecue spatulas to cases of wine glasses a few of the more modest-size items also seem to fly off the websites both because they re better quality and because they look like the stuff used by"real" chefs and caterers.
