Desperately seeking quiet new range

Zaminder | Dec 6, 200704:33 PM     27

Hi, We are renovating a NYC apartment and must choose a 30" gas (or dual) range. I was interested in the GE Cafe Range but read online that it has a noisy fan you can't turn off, even if you aren't using the convection feature. Saw on Chow.com that Bertazzoni range also can be noisy. De Longhi ditto and so on... Read that KitchenAid cycles on and off audibly every 1 minute.I don't really need a professional range (and am afraid to get a Viking because of a pretty bad record on repairs) but I do need one that looks nice (sorry, but that's the truth). That probably means stainless steel. Help! I would be so grateful to anyone who likes their (30" gas) range (or similar) and would tell me what kind it is. The noise thing is very important to me as I am partially hearing impaired and this is a small apartment. THANK YOU for any info!
