Don t try to work a giant unit into an old kitchen design."There s just not a place for it" Justin says."It s much more likely you could incorporate an undercounter or drawer unit into an existing design."
Even though online restaurant supply companies have deep discounts on gas cooktops and ranges you may be in for a disappointment if you hope to save on one for your home."Ranges for restaurants have different specs and they aren t right for residential use — one could literally blow up your home says Herschberger. The differing requirements run from commercial venting to bigger gas lines says Weil. Even if your spacious kitchen design could accommodate the specs your state s Health Department may ban the use of restaurant ranges in home settings."And buying a range like that over the Internet will almost surely void the manufacturer s warranty she says. Commercial outdoor grills are a different story."We sell lots of them to homeowners and of course they don t need the venting says Weil"but before making such a large investment you should definitely check with your Health Department to find out what it allows."
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."
So the turkey roasted then cooled then roasted then cooled and I spent several sleepless nights wondering if I d poisoned my nearest and dearest with inadequately cooked poultry. I finally saved my dollars and bought a spanking new smoothtop electric range. It s amazingly easy to clean the electric elements do a great job on everything from high-temperature searing to low-temperature simmering and the oven is large enough to accommodate an entire holiday feast (and cook it at the right temperature!).
Place the all freezer carefully for some improved kitchen traffic flow."The way a typical kitchen is set up the refrigerator freezer is in the most accessible place" says Justin."But with a combined unit you re using the refrigerator 90 percent of the time and the freezer just 10 percent. If you purchase an all freezer it doesn t need to go in the most accessible spot. It can go off to the corner somewhere."
"True chef-style cooking requires high heat which means gas heat says interior designer Sue Adams of Andover Mass. While many retailers advertise a"professional" line of electric ranges they just don t put out enough BTUs for flashing fish or searing meats."You can t have a pro kitchen with an electric cooktop she says.
