Help choosing between GE or Kitchenaid gas ranges
I'm looking for a 30" gas slide-in range in stainless. The budget is around $1500, which is reasonably limiting. I'm replacing a 10-12 year old Whirlpool Gold which I hate. So that basically leaves me with the following:
Kitchenaid Architect model KGSK901SSS for $1600, regularly $2000.
- Or $1250 at a clearance centre
GE model JCGS650SEFSS for $1600
- I would prefer the 750 model with convection oven, 5th burner and stainless top, but it's too far outside of the budget. We rent our home from family and I won't ask them to bump the budget up this high. I don't want to make up the difference because though I love to cook and bake, and can't aesthetically accept freestanding, we need to buy our own home sooner than later.
GE model JGSP28SERSS for $1500
In your esteemed opinions (I mean that, I have been trolling this board for research) which is the best option? Am I wrong to not consider lower prices Maytags?
