Why is there such a difference in price between a 30" range and a 36"?

Fuck man, I'm renovating the kitchen and need appliances

Really good 30" is like $2000
Crappy entry level 36" is like $5000

Does an extra 6 inches really make that much of a difference ?

Next cooktop we buy will be 36" at least. Makes a huge difference. Not so much for the amount of burners, but for what you can fit on the stove at one time. One big cast iron on the middle burner on our standard cooktop basically hogs the whole thing. With a wider model we could get a couple of other pans on there.

my house came with an older 30" range. the cooking space is super tight and annoying, 36" is way worth it.

Depending on how fast you need it I’d check out greentoe.com (dumb fucking name I know) but if they have the brand/set your looking for it’s worth making them an offer to see if anyone bites. They’re just a brokerage service, but they got me the OLED I was looking for for about $400 less than anyone else was charging (and tax, shipping were included)

I’ve renovated 2 kitchens in the past 5 years. We went with mostly Bosch 800 series both times. I’d say they work fine and were reasonably priced but they also look really nice and helped get us a shit ton over asking when we sold the last place for our “chefs kitchen...” lol

Also, can not more highly suggest a slide in range. Shit makes the kitchen look so much bigger :dunno:

And also inside the oven too, would be a nice size increase

Have you looked into them?

Thor seems to make a decent one for 3k but it has bad reviews. There's a bosch for 6k that looks alright
