I know I haven't been around much lately and I'm sorry for that. I really had no idea how much work a toddler would be LOL. Being a stay-at-home dad and running a full time party business out of the home isn't easy at all
Anyway, I'm ready to upgrade the range in my kitchen andI want to spend some money. I want a free standing gas range and want to spend about $1,500 to $2,000. I'd LOVE to have a downdraft but will settle for the micro-hood. It MUST be convection (or convection ready). I don't have 220V to the range area yet so I'd probably neet to opt for gas convection but I can run 220 to the area if need be for a good gas range / electric convection.
My real question is about BTU's. My current range (GE Spectra XL44) has a 12,000 BTU burner but I feel it just isn't hot enough. Right now I'm kinda looking at a Kitchen Aid KGRA806P for $1468.00 from Lowes and it has a 15,000BTU triple Tier burner.
My reasoning for the higher output is for stir fry and wok cooking. When I really need high BTU's I use my 14" cast iron wok on my outdoor turkey fryer burner. The problem is I want to get this all done indoors ya know.
