Gas Ranges and grates

Posted by COLN (My Page) on

Finally my gas range is about to be replaced. Consumers Reports is of zero help as they don't mention cleanability on any item. The grates are my pet peeve. The painted grey ones are impossible to clean and over the past three years I have had to resort to pumice stone and then sandpaper!! I was told by a sales person that the grey ones are always that way and I should consider a range with the heavy black grates. So last week in looking at a $1200 range with black grates, I decided on a small test. Using just my fingernail, I traced a short line on the grate. Guess what that "black" comes right off. Does anyone own a range that has a really hard endurable surface on the grates? Something that just wipes anything off?

You could look at open burner ranges and range tops like Blue Star and CC. They are made of cast iron and are very easy to clean, at least in my opinion.

But the price on these types of ranges and range tops tends to be a bit on the high end as they are higher end appliances.

Read the many posts here about the wonderful clean ability of induction. Read the page one thread ,yay or nay, and especially the links in that thread .

Google gardenweb+induction.

You will never be too tied to clean up after dinner. We all had gas before and switched!

RE: Gas Ranges and grates

No one that has induction had electric radiant before?

All new or recently affordable technology gets all it's sells from conquest sells.

Induction has its own set of issues.

Hi YuliaO,
Did you finally make a decision on the range/cooktop? I am also planning a remodel and have been looking for reviews of the meile-km391g. Any luck?
