And yearning for real advice. I cook a lot, want gas or gas above and electric below, have only 30" and want nothing particularly subtle or complicated, just moving up from my ancient Hotpoint. Something in the 1500 dollar range. Solid, reliable - all that. I looked at Garlands, Thermador, Jenn-Air, Wolf, Viking. I began the quest in June and haven't gotten very far. Thank you thank you.
