Aargh - which 30' gas range + OTR micro
I need to replace a 1988 gas range + OTR micro for my new kitchen. It's a small condo cooking workspace with an 8x12 attached eating area. The sink is in the peninsula which separates the work and eating area. I love the sink location since I can watch TV while I do the dishes and all my prep work.
If possible I'd like the range to have a storage or warming drawer to hold pots and pans since space is at a premium. I do love the look of the semi-professional ranges but I have 2 questions: do they have a storage drawer and can you put an OTR micro above them?
If it's better for me to use a traditional gas range which has the best track record for repairs? It can be slide-in or freestanding but I want a clean uncluttered look near the backsplash. Once I choose my appliances I can finalize my kitchen layout and finally start!!!!
I have looked in Consumer Reports but from what I've read over the past months the GW community has the real pulse on what's good and what's a potential headache.
