30" Wolf vs Viking Vs. Capital Culinarian

hershy79 | Apr 27, 2011 11:26 AM

Hi. I have 2 days to make the following decisions (due to great rebates available)

1) Wolf 304 ($4000 Canadian plus tax) or the Viking VGCC530-4BSS ($3500 Canadian plus tax or the Culinarian ($4500 Canadian)?

2) Dual Fuel of All-Gas? I will be keeping my current Jenn-Air Electric stove in the basement so I will have an electric oven which is why I am thinking to go All Gas for the oven. Increase in cost for dual fuel is around $1000.

3) Open or Sealed Burners? I'm leaning towards open burners based on cooking patterns and they don't seem too difficult to clean

Concerns: I want the ability to simmer on at least one burner in a small pot and don't want a difficult stove to clean (stove-top or oven). Thinking a self-cleaning oven would be ebst suited for me.

I was offered a Dual Fuel Electrolux Icon range for around $2100 Canadian but I haven't heard much about it and am guessing it is a far inferior range to the two mentioned above.
