Pro-style Ranges Overrated?
What's the difference between a pro-style range and a regular range?
I've noticed that many pro-style ranges from companies such as Blue Star, NXR, and Viking have burners that only go up to a maximum of 15,000 BTU.
But many of the cheap ranges from Sears have burners that go up to 17,000 or 18,000 BTU. How are the pro-style ranges superior? Would someone who does a lot of stir-frying be better off with a cheap range that has a single 19,000 BTU burner?
