Is 24' oven too small?
I am thinking of getting a 24" all-gas range - in addition to a convection steam-oven (Gaggenua, Wolf or Thermador). The way I cook, I anticipate that I will be using the latter most of the time for every day meals.
*Everyone* here seems to like having double-ovens (who am I to diagree?), so I plan on getting (eventually) an electric 30" wall-oven as well - IF I feel I need it. I like the idea of a range b/c of the infra-red broiler and also b/c I am hoping that the hood above the cooking area would take care of the smells.
I can fit a 30" range but I'll be losing 3" of landing space on each side, that is why I'd like to stick to 24", IF it is a "sensible* thing to do (it is NOT about the price).
We do not "entertain big", not really, and even if we do, we mostly BBQ outside.
However, I don't want to spend $$$$ on something that does not make much sense.
Have you baked in a 24" oven?
What do you think?
