Wolf 36' gas range or lesser dual fuel?

secondhalfMay 27, 2012

Hi - could those of you with experience with all gas range and dual fuel tell me if I'm better off with a lesser brand if that's how I can afford a dual fuel? We are purchasing one electric wall oven as well, so I was assuming the 36" all gas wolf would be perfect, but I am feeling intimidated by what seems to be a less user friendly piece of equiipment (I.e., no visible temp gauge, no timer, no telescoping racks, no self clean...). I love the look amd reliability of the Wolf, but I don't want to be blinded by a name. And I just can't justify spending 9000 on the Wolf dual. So those of you with all gas Wolf ranges, are you happy with your choices?

Get the Wolf gas range. With the gas range you get the infrared broiler which will perform better than the electric broiler element in the dual-fuel. Also, you already have an electric oven with electric broil going into your wall.

The dual-fuel, while slick, will be more costly and complicated to fix. To me, simpler is better when it comes to a range, and I would prefer to have the option of using a gas oven for baking anyway.

There is no way I would turn down a Wolf just to get dual fuel in an inferior model, particularly when the chief "advantage" of the model is something you already have in the wall.
