Looking for a good DF 30" range
Brand new member here. I am hoping to get some advice on a new, reliable, higher end DF 30" range. I currently have a 9 year old whirlpool gas range that works, I just hate it (came with the house and is a nightmare to clean).
I've been doing a lot of reading and research and really don't want to get a new, fancy, expensive lemon with a bunch of problems. From things I've read Dacor ranges look cool have lots of features but seem to have even more problems, Vikings are supposed to be high end but looks like quality has gone down hill so that's undesireable, Wolf ranges look good but are very pricey, I'm not sure if I have a 3/4" gas line (haven't pulled out the current range to look yet) besides if I only have a 1/2" line I can't change it - finished basement - no access.
I'm not that fussy about open or closed burners, what I really want is a high quality unit with high reliability and low probability of problems down the road.
Anyway, I would greatly appreciate any and all advice on what opinions folks have on what brands or models to stay away from, and what brands or models to do more research on.
Thanks in advance for any and all input.
