Thoughts on FiveStar Dual Fuel Range?

BAVEMarch 25, 2012

We're considering purchasing the FiveStar Dual Fuel 48" range (http://www.ajmadison.com/cgi-bin/ajmadison/TTN5257BW.html) from AJ Madison. I'd really appreciate any thoughts on the range. We're on a tight budget so this range really seemed to fit the bill.

Here is a link that might be useful: Link to the range

No personal experience, but a Fivestar gas range was one of the lowest scorers in Consumer Reports annual list.

If budget is a concern, do you need a 48". 36-42" are still plenty big.

For whatever size you need, consider looking for demo's, so-called scratch & dent's, clearance, etc.
Do check craigslist too. Many builders will advertise there to clear out high-end appliances they used to stage a show home / suite.
If you're a Costco member, check their site too.

A little legwork & research will stretch that budget out.

But remember to consider ventilation too, if you're doing a big upgrade with your range. Your current range hood may not suffice.

Please note, the open burners are the old style ring burners where the flame shoots out the sides, like the type every one made before the sealed burners came out, not at all like the CC, Bluestar, or American Range open burners. Also only 14,000 btu. The Fivestar sealed burners are 18,900 btu, and probbably easier to keep clean than those open rings. If the reason you are going for the duel fuel is because of the large oven, small oven combo, forget the duel fuel and go for this Capital Precision

for less money. six burners and a grille. You can use a griddle pan on the girlle, and the Capital is a true grille not a reversible grille/griddle pan that you could just as well use over twwo burners.
