Capital Ranges/Cook tops_Input please

LisalovesrenoJune 19, 2013

I just bought a house and am looking to put in a whole new kitchen. I currently have a Thermador cooktop and love it. It's 15 years old and still works perfectly. I was looking at a Thermador Range Top and they didn't get the best reviews. Faulty ignition seemed to be a top complaint and the porcelain surface most said was extremely hard to keep clean. My husband and I do a lot of wok cooking and so while shopping for a range top/stove that offered a wok attachment, I stumbled upon Capital. The reviews were good but no one specifically mentioned ease of cleaning or how the wok feature worked. Capital offers a wok ring with their ranges and for their range tops, there is a model with an integrated wok burner. Does anyone have any pros and cons to these two models they would like to share? It's such a big investment I want to be sure I've done my research and don't buy a lemon.

Hi,

We just got our Capital rangetop. It is one powerful thing. We did the 36" six burners. One burner did come as a small pan burner. It is the same burner ring with half the holes of the regular burners.

It is built like a tank. Should last a long long time.

Cleaning is not too bad. Grates are quite heavy but just lift right off. The video referred to by the first poster is something that I viewed as well and is a good to view before you make your purchasing decision.

We did consider the Blue Star - they are direct competitors of Capital. I could have gone either way - but chose the Capital as I thought it looked better.

Best of luck to you.

Eric
