Professional range advice needed

Tracy L. | May 14, 2005 07:07 PM

I am contemplating remodeling my kitchen and if I want it done sooner than later then I need to do it on a tight budget. I've seen second hand professional ranges/stoves for sale and my handyman is gung ho to install the hood and exhaust vents and my coworker is willing to convert my kitchen to gas. I worked in a cafe and have used this sort of range before and I have to admit a range that would cook things faster would be wonderful. However, I would prefer more storage than stove space and I am concerned about resale value if we choose to sell the house. Is a big range/stove like this more of a hassle (in terms of installation and maintenance)than it is worth or is it one of those situations where I'd ultimately say "I don't know how I lived without it for so long?" Thanks
