What does it take (if its even legally permissible) in Allegheny County?

I'm not talking about the high end retail ranges by Wolf or Viking that look pretty, cost 10k, but don't have the same performance.

My BIL has one. Since it was already there when he bought the house, I don't know if special permits were required to install it. All I know is it's possible to have a commercial range in a residence in Allegheny County.

Well that's a start. Researching options for a kitchen upgrade sometime next year. Contemplating an in counter cook top with double wall ovens, but I'd rather have a commercial range. The residential appliances just don't get the BTU's that I'd prefer from my time working in professional kitchens.

Those things get really hot in a house. Get a proper exhaust fan system.

I don't understand what grounds the city or county would have to object.

That's one thing. Will also have to have an appropriate non combustible back splash, probably no cabinets on either side of it, bigger gas line, etc. Also the number of pilots to be considered, although with a shut off valve the gas can be turned off to the stove when it isn't in use. After all of that its still probably cheaper than buying a comparable "pro" residential range that doesn't perform as well.

Was just wondering if the county had any restrictions, or requirements that anyone knew of off of the top of their head (or knew who I could contact to find out).

There are probably special code requirements for installation like stainless steel panels on the cabinets and walls surrounding it, extra ventilation, etc. There might be a BTU limit too. If so, that's something to keep in mind when selecting a specific range.

I do know that it's important to check with homeowners insurance company to make sure it's not going to void the policy. The premiums might be higher. I'd start there before researching further. You might decide it's not worth the insurance hassles.

My cousin has one with the hood. My uncle installed it quite a few years ago. Not sure of the legality of it all.

It's a fire hazard is why they might have restrictions. Far less reasonable restrictions certainly exist.
