$500 range vs $5000 range
As my kitchen remodel progresses and most decisions are made I have time to ponder stuff. Something I always wondered is what is the difference between a $500 lets say Kenmore range and a I don't know the brands but a $2000 + range?
This thread is not meant as a debate between electric and gas, or between brands, or to criticise anyones choices. When I see people talking about $10,000 appliance allowance I think WOW. Thats alot of money to me. I think all our appliances together were $2,500 a few years ago.
In a few years, if I can get a really good deal, I would like a double oven electric range or maybe with induction. Right now the prices are way out of my leaque. I just can't imagine spending more than a $1000 for a range and even that seams high to me. I wonder if you are spending that much what are you getting for your money?
Now I have electric and always will (remember my fear of gas thread?) so maybe electric ranges tend to be less expensive? Is it the features?, I spent more on our range to get a smooth top instead of coils. Or quality?, should you expect a higher cost range to last so much longer? Or the looks?, I must say I do like the looks of some gas ranges.
So wondering if you are baking a cake will it come out better in a high end range? Are they really more for serious cooks? I'm sure my teenage DD would like to know as she is constantly baking cakes. I might not let her know the answer, lol.
