Im going to have a gas stove in my retirement home because I love gas easier and cleaner and you can still cook when electricity goes out . I would not recommend a smooth top stove .
I had a glass top stove in my house in Savannah and didn't mind it. the one I have in my apartment is a PITA!!! the Large burners are in front and quite honestly are too large. I have a large wok that has a flat bottom and it isn't wide enough to use on the large burner. The 2 smaller burners are almost too small. it is constantly filmy, dirty. I clean it with the appropriate cleaners, film appears. I'm over the stove. The oven is conduction and I have to watch temperatures and baking times carefully usually set 5 degrees lower than called for and a minute sooner than the earlier baking time. I like soft chocolate chip cookies and set the timer for 7 minutes and 45 seconds. they are crisp at 8 minutes....

Is that like Lone Star beer in Texas? Boy does that stuff suck.

Hey, thanks for that pic...yeah, I have discovered that I really need a hood. I have a high shelf that runs along the whole wall, that I use for storage for less frequently needed items. Stuff is getting grimy, oily residue on it.


I'm a bit 'redneck-y' myself sometimes, might go to the trouble of hiding the cords, might not. The older I get, the less I care, as long as it works.


I've actually found that professional/commercial kitchen ranges can be had at very reasonable prices, much less expensive than the consumer models I *was* looking at. They look utilitarian rather than fancy, but I'm OK with that. I'm not trying to impress anyone with how the stove looks, I just like to make good food.

I absolutely love my Kitchen Aid appliances. A little over two years ago, my dishwasher died. Replaced it with a Kitchen Aid for no other reason than I liked the way it looked and it was on sale. And I loved it. So when our refrigerator died about a year later, I replaced it with a Kitchen Aid. And I love the fridge even more than the dishwasher. We just remodeled the kitchen a few months ago anr replaced the remaining appliances with Kitchen Aid.

I prefer gas cooktops and electric ovens. So if I were to do a range, I would do dual fuel. We have double wall ovens (electric) and a seperate cook top.

We have a Cafe induction range that is awesome! It is faster than gas an the glass top is a breeze to clean, because food doesn’t bake on.

Have a glass top GE profile range. Been fine, love the convection oven , it is 20 years old. Kitchen Aid DW , mid-level and it has been fine as well. Refrig. has been the PITA. We needed counter depth in white and didn't have much choice in brands. The GE didn't last long and the Whirlpool had all kinds of problems which involved getting GE to replace the freezer door after a long battle. It has the water and ice in the door which I dislike and won't want again.

Maybe not a redneck, but definitely a DDIYer - Don't Do It Yourself.
