I know that cleaning comparisons of various ranges have been the subject of a number of threads in this forum, but I have a specific question about cleaning these ranges and I'm having a hard time sorting through all the info in those threads. Right now my oven is a GE sealed burner with a black shiny enamel top and it drives me absolutely CRAZY because it shows every speck of dust or grease spatter. I saw the Wolf duel fuel range and noticed that the pan under the grate (sorry, I don't know the correct terminology) looked like it was the same kind of black enamel.
I cook a lot of things that spatter oil or grease out on the cooktop but I rarely have a problem with spillovers (maybe that's because my burners aren't that powerful, I guess). So I'm not that worried about cleaning big spillover messes because they don't happen that often. I'm worried about cleaning on a day to day basis so that grease spatters and dust don't show.
I looked at a Bluestar and my impression was that it would be easier because the material wouldn't show the grease and dust as much and you could basically upend the bowls into the sink to get rid of dropped crumbs. I really don't care about cleaning the innards so long as having crumbs drop in there doesn't affect how it functions or shorten its lifespan.
In other words, I want it to look clean and function properly -- but I don't really care if there are crumbs or things hiding out of view.
Could some Bluestar or Wolf owners chime in and let me know your experience?
Thanks very much!
