I have installed wolf and viking, Wolf is nice, has a cast iron frame which is pretty cool, and heavy, lol...

I want to say wolf had the better warranty, its all preference, I would take the Bertazzoni over them all from what i have seen. Brass burners cast iron grates, super nice and smooth gas valves, real commercial piping, ect...


As far as a double oven goes, in a 30" range it will be over and under, make sure that is what you want before pulling that trigger, I could not use it...

36' gets you to a useable 2x oven...

If you need a double oven, get a wall unit {I love mine} eye level, no bending over, just super convenient, I will never live with out one again..

Or a 1/4 or 1/2 counter top convection oven, they are affordable and work really well for fast small heatups, which is the attraction to a 2x range, but the problem is gone are your hopes of ever baking a high cake, good sized turkey or roast, ect. I would stay away from over and under doubles...

This seems to be another of those things that the popularity of the Food Network has changed. At one time those high end units were only made for professional kitchens, but now both brands offer a "home" line too. Looking up Wolf, you apparently can't even get a price from an authorized dealer online - you have to call for pricing, per the requirements that Wolf makes. Vikings seem to run about $4500 and up, so Wolf is probably even higher to start.

As for the broiling, that's one thing I really like about having the reversible grill pan insert. Between that and my barbecue grill, I may never even use the broiler in the oven - not a bad thing as that should help keep it cleaner.

I would like to thank all of you for your advice. We have settled on the GE Adora range (Thank You RP). With the money we saved by not buying a Viking, we can also replace the microwave and the dishwasher.
They will all be in the new slate color, which makes Kayelle happy.

very nice, good choice, pay close attention to gas piping sizes, that stove still needs a good amount of gas...

Thanks for your advice, we have a very short run,about 10 feet, unlike my condo, where it was over 50 feet!
