pros and cons of a pro gas range in a kitchen island

ansarvik | Mar 29, 2009 05:21 AM


We are planning a kitchen re-model;Am planning to replace a 20 yo electric cooktop with a gas range;I am contemplating a 36" bluestar with griddle vs.36"wolf.One of the kitchen designers is very AGAINST having the 36"range in the kitchen island, for concerns with heat,noise from vent-hood and safety.
At present our kitchen has the cooktop against a wall and I interact with my family/friends when I am at the sink or when preparing food.I feel that having the range in the island will make cooking a more social family event and hence would really LOVE the island range.
Would like to hear opinions from cooks who have an island gas range.
