30" gas range, upper middle end
I'm remodeling my kitchen next month. We may put our home on the market in the next few years, since our second will be in college in 2014.
I'd like a nice range that will make our kitchen look "upscale" to potential buyers. Our home is in a town with a 35 minute commute to midtown, so potential buyers will be from Manhattan and Brooklyn.
I'm looking at the GE Cafe series:
What other appliances would fit the bill? I'm willing to pay between 2-3K.
I'd like a range from a company with good maintenance record, and am not looking for a professional grade range.
I'm not looking at NXR, since as a working mom I get home late and throw meals together quickly.
I went to a local appliance store and one salesman told me that the GE Cafe is a "best value". Another salesman recommended the Viking range.
The range will be vented to the outside, so I can put in a range with a few high power burners.
My family is mostly vegetarian so we won't be cooking big turkeys or broiling steak.
