30" all gas GE monogram vs. Thermador
After lurking for weeks on GW and spending lots of time visiting local appliance stores, we have narrowed down our 30" all gas range choices to:
-GE monogram ZGP30NRSS
We looked at Blue Star and realized we are not the kinds of cook that will benefit from that. Mostly, DH seared and sauteed. I simmer and broil. We occasionally bake (mostly our teenage daughter :)
We are torn between the look of monogram (which we like better) and the star burner (which we hope means better heating or cooking performance). We are concerned that the Thermador XLO feature will be a liability (need service calls) down the road.
We would love to hear from GW-ers who have had first hand experiences with either GE monogram or Thermador gas ranges.
