Buying a new range. Help.

laflacad | Jan 18, 201109:08 AM

I'm an old school type of cook. My favorite stove/oven was a 1950's number I had in the apt we rented when I was a teenager. Gas all the way. When I started looking at ranges, and knowing my cooking style, I wanted at least 5 burners not crowded on top of each other and a broiler. I like my steak. Every oven is convection now with multiple functions. I'm cross eyed. I want something that heats evenly and cooks my food well. I don't bake often.

Come to find that broilers are a dying breed. After researching ad nauseum I'm at a total loss. I budgeted $2000 for this and then ran into a AGA Legacy 44 inch discounted (floor model) and drooled on myself. I can make my budget fit (and my kitchen design as I was looking at 36" ranges) but is it worth trying to do so? I don't really k now anything about it. Everything I've read online has mixed reviews and that's for everything from Ktichenaid to Wolf.

Then I'm wondering, should I make the jump to induction?

So knowing what I just wrote down can anyone give me some direction here?
