Which gas rangetop for best reliability and service?
I just read through the thread about the appalling "service" provided by A&E.
I'm in the process of deciding what gas rangetop to buy and have been focusing on performance, appearance, cost -- and have been pretty clueless about all the service concerns, til now. Well! I've forgotten to factor in what is probably the most important concern!
Was seriously considering Dacor -- til I read that A&E service covers them in a lot of areas.
Was seriously considering GE -- til I learned that the new ones will be built in Mexico.
Capital Precision and Wolf (36" open burner) were also on the short list. With Capital -- mostly but not all good, but small sample. That leaves Wolf-- is Wolf the "safe" choice???
And a while back I was looking at Lacanche, thinking, simple, no electronics (but also no wall ovens)
So -- please -- tell me what you think -- from the perspective of build venue and quality, reliability, and service -- which gas rangetop is the best bet -- and why. If it's a brand I haven't mentioned -- please, let me know.
