great range under $2k?

wowimadog | Nov 24, 2007 11:48 AM

i have been reading all the discussions regarding ranges since i am in the market for one myself, but price is a concern. i'm looking for a standalone gas range, either 30" or 36", for under $2k (including shipping/installation). i bake a lot, so the oven is equally as important to me as the performance of the burners. would love to find a "scratch and dent" deal or refurb so i can afford a high-quality range, but i'm not sure where to look in the los angeles area (or online). any advice, including recommendations for online dealers, would be most appreciated.

wish list:
sealed burners
convection option
second oven/warming drawer
large capacity oven
high-output burners
five or six burners
fairly easy to clean/maintain
a color other than black or stainless

i'm considering:
bluestar (but can't find a local dealer to check one out in person)
ge profile
jenn-air
montague
wolf

i've looked at and don't care for:
bosch
dcs
dacor
kitchenaid
thermador
viking

thank you!
