Help! Affordable Downdraft Gas Range Ideas?
we're adding a family room to the back of our house...the adjacent dining room and kitchen will be open layout to the new fam room. my contractor tells me we have to follow code and i'll have to get a downdraft range instead of the gas one i have now (currently don't have a range hood) so that it has someplace to vent. changing the layout is not an option.
i'm looking for downdraft gas ranges online and most places like lowes and home depot don't sell them. sears says jennair is the only brand that carries a full stove/oven version (not just cooktop) but it's 2,500k which is INSANE! i have the name of a wholesale distributor i'll order from but that will only take a few hundred off which is still too much.
so i guess my question is has anyone had experience with this? any ideas on alternatives? i don't want just a cooktop, need an oven too.
