Are there any nice stainless steel 24 inch gas ranges out there?

TericFebruary 10, 2012

I've searched these boards and a number of other places and can't find a $1000ish gas range (24 inch) to bring home. When I look at the various offerings commonly available; I'm not too impressed. Danby, Premier, Avanti, Summit, all look or feel overpriced and under-built. Sure, I could double the funds and find something to take home, but can anyone comment on their experience with this size of a range and if there's a good choice that exists? I won't use it everyday; it's going into a vacation home, but I'd like to hear from anyone out there...

Well, if you want to spend the money, Bertazzoni has a very nice little range:

and the Avanti Elba is a lot nicer than the rest of their line, in case you haven't seen it:

I think DeLonghi has one that size, too, but I don't know what it's like.

I have had a Gagenau 36 stainless gas range for 14 years which I love. I know Gagg makes 24's too.

Simmers nice and I have the Wok burner that is great for high heat.. Lots of them. I saw a melia the other day... looked very nice too although I cannot comment on the function.

You'd be better off getting a 30" range and an 18" DW. There really isn't anything worth having in your budget range. However, you can find some decent 30" ones in your price range.

Oops, sorry, forgot it had to be stainless, so even if you want to spend the money the Aga wouldn't do it.

Have you considered doing a cooktop over oven? Fagor has a very nice 28" five burner gas cooktop that you could install over a 24" oven:

I know people who've done that to save space and they really like the cooktop.

Sorry, I don't know where the rest of my last post went. I do agree with LWO that if your budget is fixed, you'll get a lot more in a 30" in that price range. Had a friend who wound up having to do that and lose some badly needed inches, not so much for budget as because she just didn't like anything she could find in a 24 enough to pay extra for less.
