I forgot to mention that the Jenn-Air was around $2k. That's what I meant by a $4k difference.

I like this one: Ilve UM90FMPVSX Majestic Series 36" Ranges Emerald Green

I know it's bigger, but it is dual fuel and quite sexy!

I found, a number of years ago, an Italian stove that was bright yellow and brass...absolutely guaranteed to make you want to cook breakfast.

Looks like a pretty fancy stove! In my case I'm pretty well stuck with 30 inches without an expensive kitchen remodel.

My kitchen is nice but it's not as big as I wanted, and no island although it has a bar type extension where my guests can sit on bar stools and visit while I cook. No walk in pantry either. I hope things are better when I've organized it or I'm going to have to turn my entry closet into a pantry (who uses those closets anyway?) or maybe keep the canned goods in the garage.

I'm definitely planning on visiting the local Wolf/Viking dealer today. I'll take some measurements and pictures of the current setup with me in case it will help them determine practicality and possibly quote installation cost. It's quite possible I'll place my order today!

Thanks TL. There's already a problem, hours: Tue-Sat 10am-6pm. So I guess I'll do something else today, maybe sit around and covet...

Well I've got more artwork to hang and my Goodwill bar stools don't swivel, I've bought the hardware to fix them so I might as well do that. I've been working 8-10 hours a day unpacking and fixing and all that move in stuff. Saturday was my first day off in a whole month, I went shopping! Yesterday the most productive thing I did was research the stove and write this topic! I feel great that I've reached the point where I can actually waste a whole day doing nothing but fun stuff.

I'll head out to that store tomorrow.

My entry closet is now an equipment pantry with some space on one side for food. I have a very small pantry in the kitchen for the rest of the food, stuff that's used daily. I think that this is as much better use of that space than a place to hang coats and gather clutter. All of my pots and pans along with small appliances, keeps my counter tops tidy and I don't have to dig around the cabinets for pots and pans, everything has a home.

My daughter recently bought a home in the valley and the seller offered to leave her fairly new Wolf range/oven for a price. The matching hood was part of the kitchen so the seller couldn't take that. Anyway my daughter got a deal on the Wolf. I've used it myself several times already and it is very nice. No fancy/cheap electronics on that cooker.

And speaking of crappy electronics, I installed a new GE Profile cooktop a couple of years ago in my home and several months ago when someone spilled some water on it it apparently got under the knobs and shorted out the igniters. The thing is a sealed unit so I haven't bothered trying to fix it. We now have to use a lighter every time. Terrible design. Liquids do get spilled on cooktops.
