I have watched a few video's and read a lot about what range to buy, The one thing I have not found is about the burners as in pan size. I have a 36" and even that it has five burners after using two I fine I am running out of room for other pans. 
I have also found the knobs get hot...Looking to replace the range I have now with BS, Wolf, Viking, or Capital... What are your thoughts on these.

Good afternoon!  I am looking for a 30" professional-style free-standing gas range & oven, with the following requirements:
1.  Five or six high-output burners,
2. Removable high-power griddle,
3. Large convection oven with both convection baking and regular baking,
4. Oven can be gas or electric,
5. Range burners must be gas.

Advice?  Recommendations?  I have looked at BlueStar, Thermador, Wolf, Viking, and Aga, to name just a few.  I do not believe I am interested in GE or LG, unless there's a model which meets all of these requirements you very highly recommend.  

I've enjoyed reading your well-written informative reviews!  Again, thank you for the assistance.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Please feel free to contact me at 847-768-9724 or

So what did you purchase?

Good luck with the removable griddle. It is a bit challenging to find a five burner 30'. The Thermador they are standing against is a very nice option that I just purchased! It has five-star-shaped burners and features the lowest simmer of anything on the market. It also comes in all gas or duel-fuel.
Just looking

ExcellentVideo Presentation---but---There's one you missed touching on. As a homeowner, not only am I interested in Professional ranges; I am also interested in professional ranges being readily able to be serviced by a very handy and able homeowner. I am truly one such homeowner. I do electricity, electronics, plumbing, carpentry and all types of repair. The built-in easy repairability of a professional product is certainly one I would consider a very desirable product feature or quality.

Great information session. thank you! 
I have a question, I just bought a 30inch Wolf dual gas range model DF304 and I used it for two months and I already have a problem, the black trim on each side is getting all discolored by the flame going near the side when I used a 12 inches pot to cook my spaguetti sauce and my stainless steel side panel got all yellowish is this normal? Company Sub-zero says that I am using too big of a pan is that true would I have to be careful which size of pan & pot to use with a $10K stove what is the problem, is it the flame is too high and when I put a large pot 12 inches that the flame is getting flattened and push the flame near the side. would it be that the rack is not high enough,  what are your comments about the size of pans & pots that we should use is this something that all prof range have in common?

I want to change my Wolf gas range for a GE Monogram am I doing a good thing?
I hope with the GE Monogram I will not experience any side discoloration problem because I am using big pots. would I?

Excellent-Excellent-EXCELLENT presentation! Right to the point! The gas versus flat top, knobs, oven(gas or electric), even grilling!  I mean everything was covered. Great Job!

Thanks!  Very helpful.  We were going to buy an all gas Wolf 48", but after watching, can see that the dual fuel one is the way to go.

is there any disadvantage in having a griddle element instead of a another burner on a five burner range?

I have a stove with the grill . A Dual Fuel Jenn Air and now have to replace it because of an electrical storm and blizzard. I love my Grill. The only way you would get so much smoke is that you don't know how to use the stove. It is called controlled cooking as you have to do with the baking and the top burners. I did not like how he dismissed the Grill on the stoves. Maybe they should teach the buyer the ways to cook or give classes. Yes the steaks taste as good as outside . Yes I wan a stove with a grill and I have never had too much smoke. Stop putting down the grill.

Now tell me which stove will replace my dual fuel Jenn Air with a real grill as I have now.

I don't think they answer any of our questions.

Thank you for the information. The size of the oven was not addressed and I am finding that many of the pro ranges have very small oven capacity. Please add that information if you decide to update the video.

We have had a gas Thermador with an electric built in grill/griddle and love it.  Key to grilling without smoking up the house is to install the cook surface with grill on an outside wall, turn on the powerful fan with an exterior motor prior to heating the grill.   Then turn on the grill and wait to achieve the correct temperature for grilling meat, fish, veggies or fruit.  Wait prior to turn food until it has the char lines on it and the sides begin to change color.   Then turn it to finish.   After food has been removed from grill and grill has cooled then turn off fan.   Also, if you have a weather proofed tight house, make certain that you work with professional HVAC, installers and kitchen designer to guarantee that there is enough make up fresh air introduced when the hood fan with external booster is turned on or you could be pulling poisonous exhaust fumes from the furnace or hot water heater throughout the house.  Good Planning is essential.
