Range: Warming drawer or griddle, also different burner strengths
I am getting a new gas range/oven, and have narrowed it down to 3 models. Two by Kenmore and one by GE. All have excellent reviews. The differences are as follows:
Kenmores both have an included warming drawer. GE has no warming drawer but an included reversible griddle for the center burner. My initial thought is that both options are somewhat gimmicky. However, I'm still having a hard time choosing. I guess I'm leaning toward the warming drawer because I do cook a fair amount and my timing is often somewhat off. We are also a family of 5, so I'm concerned that the GE included griddle is too small to be helpful. Anyone have input that would cause you to go one way over the other?
Also, the burner strength on each model varies. The differences on the two strongest burners are:
1) 17,200 & 12,000 BTU
2) 18,200 & 14,200 BTU
3) 17,000 & 12,000 BTU
Of course, the highest BTU option costs the most. How significant are these differences?
Thanks for your help!
