Range Recommendations?

    Hello all. I'm in the market for a new range. Natural gas and looking to upgrade to a 36" from 30". The high end ranges are out of my budget and it seems the mid price ranges have limited burners. I'd like six 15k+ burners but most have one high burner, two mid burners, one simmer burner, and an oval 10k burner for a griddle. I'd rather have one high or dual burner in the middle for a big pot etc. Any recommendations?

    I could make my budget work a 36" Blue Star. With open burners looks like nice option. Anyone have experience with Blue Star?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Bluestar here. Had it for over 10 years now. Very happy with it. All I had to do until this past year was replace a couple of $15 igniters. About 6 months ago I had to replace the spark module, which was not uncommon as the supplier a decade ago had a lot of failed modules (and not just on Bluestars; they supplied Viking and some others as well). My sister and brother-in-law replaced their Viking with a Bluestar 7-8 years ago and have not had a single issue with it. The burners kick ass...

    Sound great! Thanks. Do you have the open or sealed burners?
