Dual fuel, open burner 30" range.

Hi All,

After a year with my new kitchen, I'm now 'consulting' on my parents redo :-)

Our costco Blue star 36" is amazing... could not be happier...

however my parents have slightly different needs.

They need a 30" range.
Gas burners
Electric oven.

They currently have an electric/radiant Miele stove top - very clean looking and easy to clean but poor to cook on. My Mum does want gas, but my dad is a concerned about things looking clean and neat. (unfortunately there isn't the juice available for a convection top range, so that's out).

I find the open burners excellent for looking clean and much easier to keep looking good than my previous sealed burner stove.
So does this type of beast exist?

Did you maybe mean induction? And are you thinking of a separate induction cooktop and a separate convection oven? Those, indeed, will often require 60 amp or 70 amp 240v service which may not be readily avaiable in older homes. If you parents would consider an induction range (as pposed to separate cooktop and oven), then the power needs are considerably more modest. Most of the less expensive induction ranges only require 40amp service and the prices are well south of $2k ($$US or $CA). I'm thinking in particular of the Samsung and Frigidaire/Kenmore ranges (sub $1500 price range.)

If your parents specifically want a dual fuel 30" range with open burners, then what I recall from stove shopping last fall is that only Five Star and Capital (in their Culinarian and Conoisseurian models) still offer 30" dual fuel with open burners in North America. Maybe somebody here has different information?
