RE: NYC kitchen- help on 30' pro-style range selection. (Follow-Up #4)

Hi there. We also live in a NYC co-op and finishing our renovation. We selected a Bluestar, and also cannot vent out. However, we purchased the Prestige Proline Hood, which is the strongest hood you can purchase for recirculation. In addition, we have a window about 5 feet away that provides much ventilation, and have a Velos with another 300 cfm fan beneath.

UWS- I am afraid you will not be able to get a pro style range for under $3000 - possibly though the Bertazonni, and Capital.

Bluestar will be about $3200, Wolf, Thermador and Viking over $3800. Bluestar and Wolf put out the most heat. I don't know much about the DCS because a number of people I know have had heat problems with it. Jade was considered by when I saw it- not in the same league.

If you aren't able to vent outside, then getting a range with mega BTU isn't advisable. You'll have a ton of heat, steam, and smoke trapped in your home. I'm not sure about your area, but no ventilation in other areas of a the country with the type of range you're talking about would be against code, and you'd never get past inspection.

Viking's got a 24" and 30" ers galore.
Heartland has a 30" pro look- metro series I think.
DCS has a 5 burner in dual fuel, a lot of bang for the buck.
5 Star also has a few
Jade
Blue Star has one too
WOLF
Dacor has 3

15k BTU is not necessary- many chefs can do a bang up meal on a single portable electric burner. WANT is a different story.

Another picture...still don't have my backsplash installed yet - another project for dear hubby..

The counter height is about 1-1/2 shorter than the cabinet height in my former home. Also, it could be because of the granite slab being not as thick as the granite in my former home.
