American Range

crookidJune 2, 2012

Does anyone have any experiences with this range. I am looking at 3 different 36 inch gas models. Any input will be helpful.

Yes, I have the 36 inch gas AR. I've had it for a couple of years and generally like it. My main issue is that it doesn't simmer at all....

A friend of mine has the Heritage model, and she likes it. It has various sized burners and they can be adjusted lower like most gas burners- remove the knob-adjust the simmer screw and set the air shutter if necc.

The Heritage has open burners and is slightly fancier than the other 2 gas models they sell. The Performer is the new 'open burner' model that people are excited about.

The Heritage has sealed burners.

The Performer Series has open burners.

Here's a link to the Performer Series.

Am interested to hear deegeaux's opinion of A.R. @ some point. Thanks in advance for your appliance-knowledge sharing.

vickimp - why won't the range simmer? Which model do you have? Is the outside of the range very hot when using the oven?

I'm considering a 30" American Heritage range, I would like to know if the outside of the oven gets hot. It has a "simmer" burner at 9000 btus, is this too hot for a simmer burner?

9000 BTU's is only when that small burner is on High. When it's on the lowest setting, it's quite low enough. I do think the outside of the oven gets warm- really it depends on how long the oven is on and at what temperature.
