LOL Andy, I don't even know if they have to order the stuff sent out from back East. Although both Wolf and Viking are great stoves they're still stoves, and I doubt my cooking is going to be any greater as a result, although likely more enjoyable, and it looks like easy clean-up is a great feature too. I'll probably cook whatever I would have cooked with the broken GE Profile and propane lighter.
I think you're pulling my leg!
It's a big enough decision what cooktop (and oven) to get. (I had originally intended to just get the cooktop, but I'm sure everybody would agree it would be ridiculous to have a gourmet cooktop sitting over that old clunky GE oven.)
I'm still moving in so other problems still have priority over the cooktop and oven (which are both broken) but I'll get around to the cookware pretty soon. I'll visit BBB and do a bit of research and then ask my expert friends here in the forum for some advice. But that's a topic for a different day. I'll use whatever cookware I got when the stove gets here, and I'll cook whatever I would have cooked with the old stove.
That automatic ignition is going to be really nice. I understand both Wolf and Viking have independent ignition per burner, and that they automatically relight if they go out for any reason. I bet you don't have to point the knob at a "light" position either, like ordinary stoves. With this broken GE profile I have to keep relighting burners if I turn the heat to the wrong setting and lose the flame.
