Are you looking in a certain price range? And are you looking for a range or a stove top?

We have a GE Profile induction range and I LOVE IT! I love the looks of the Viking that was posted. I don't even recall seeing that when we purchased our GE, although one of the reasons why we did go with our GE was because we didn't want the knobs accessible to our children.

If you're on a budget:
All Products / Kitchen / Ranges/Stoves / FFEF3018LW (http://www.frigidaire.com/products/kitchen-appliances/gas-electric-ranges/ffef3018lw - broken link)
I recently purchased this for my vacation home for under $500. It has a ceramic top and one of the burners can be turned on as either a regular sized burner or alternately as an oversized burner; also is self-cleaning. Not a fancy, high-end, big name unit, but a dependable one.

I don't know too much about electric stoves (only how to wire them) as all my life has been in houses with a gas stove/oven.
So I'm no help there, but get your model, price and then bring it to Jay's on Hempstead Tpk in Levittown. I've bought a refrigerator, range, and dishwasher there. He's beat all prices.
Also keep in mind that appliances in Lowe;s or Home Depot are uaually special models for those stores. Look at the model # compared to the same appliance at PC richard and the like, the Lowes or HD model # will have a different letter. I suspect the quality is different.

Quality isn't different, it's so stores do not have to match prices. As per their price match policy, model numbers must be the same, if an extra number or letter is in there, then Lowe's will refuse to price match PC Richard on those grounds.

Same deal with mattresses.

Just my opinion but buying a viking, wolf, garland or other commercial range that is electric is like buying a souped up sports car that has automatic trans. It's pretty and cute, but not a real cooking/driving experience. I understand the hassle, live in Levittown and no gas service on my block. I have a good old GE electric. Nothing fancy but gets the job done and has self cleaning feature.
