Been searching appliance info on GardenWeb for ages. Some good discussion on the SubZero Pro48 convinced me to buy one. I hadn't seen anything similar on the Thermador 48" Pro Steam range. Register to asked, and just saw someone bumped a thread a few hours ago. So sorry about the double post. Hopefully that thread will create some useful discussion.

RE: thoughts on Thermador 48" Pro Steam range?

Look at the discussion of the constituent parts.

Look at cooktops and rangetops. Six better than average sealed burners. Xtra low simmer of 100 degrees but clicks and clacks to maintain that low temp. Raise it to 130 and the igniters don't click. Claims tops in the industry 22k btu burners but Capital has 23k btu. Evenness not as good as Bluestar or Capital Culinarian. Plus an aggressively mediocre 1300 watt electric griddle.

Electric Ovens. Most discussion centers around the quality problems they had a few years ago and if they resolved it. Thermador and salesman swears it has been resolved not a lot confirmation from owners. Almost no one claims best in class precision.

Thermador steam oven. Almost no discussion. Steam oven discussion centers around Gaggenau vs Wolf and sometimes Miele.

Warming drawer. Like most warming drawers nothing great nothing bad.

All that for a very large premium of $14k. About the price of a Sub Zero Pro 48. A few owners and quite a bit of discussion. A lot of singing it's praises. After researching and researching vast majority of people shopping for a range in the $14k class don't buy the Thermador Pro Grand steam range. Take a guess why?
