Looking at a kitchen remodel. Assuming my marriage survives, what oven/cooktop would experienced cooks recommend? I had a Thermador in my home previously, which I loved. Six top burner, single oven cast iron grates, but I don't see anything like that offered by them currently. Saw a La Cornu that looked nice. Kind of an odd size at 43 inches, which I actually like. Four burners, with a huge burner in the middle, and two ovens, one combo, one convection. Any opinions on La Cornue vs Viking/Wolf/Thermador/GE Monogram? I have also thought about buying second hand commercial kitchen ranges, but I don't know if they're really compatible with a home set up (gas line gauge, etc) so if anyone has experience with that stuff, I'm all ears. I cook a lot, and will get a ton of use out of whatever we end up choosing. I don't care what the brand is, I want something durable that's simple to use, I don't care what it looks like, just that it performs. It will be hooded and have a warming shelf. I don't want a straight cooktop, I want something with oven(s) built in because I don't have room in the kitchen to mount two ovens in the wall. I don't actually need two ovens. Appreciate any experiences suggestions.
