buying a new range
Hi everyone-I have a general question about ranges. I'm in the market for a new one, around $2,000, although everything I like seems to exceed that price. I like knobs as opposed to touch pads (e.g I have no interest in the new Frigidaire that has a "chicken nugget" button). I'd also like it to be 30-36", with continuous sealed burners, and stainless steel or color. I do like to bake and want to become a better baker and I am learning that convection is not too useful in bread baking-but was still considering convection-either gas or dual fuel.
I am looking at two models but open to anything.
The GE Cafe seems to have all kinds of bells and whistles and I like the look even if there is some touch pad-I can get it for around $2600.
I can also get a Viking with matching hood for $4,000 (model #VGSC3064B in mint julep, which is why I suspect it is marked down).
I'm overwhelmed and figure if anyone has a strong opinion on ranges it would be bread makers. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
