Consider what kind of ice would be nice. When one of the main attractions of a separate freezer is more abundant ice, you need to do your homework, says Justin. "Some units have crushed or filtered water ice, some do not. Whether that should influence your purchase just depends on how picky you are about your ice." If on further examination you discover that the increased ice is the primary reason you're buying an all freezer, it might be lots easier just to fit an undercounter ice maker into your remodel. Sub-Zero makes one model, and lesser known companies such as Avanti and Hoshizaki make others.
What's your cooking style? If you do lots of stir-frying or heat large quantities of food, you'll want at least one high-heat element or burner, as mentioned above. Many ranges include a wok ring, which sits on top of the burner grate to hold a wok. If you simmer lots of sauces, you'll want a "simmer burner," which cooks at a low temp. Check with the manufacturer on these; "a simmer technically is 190 degrees," Franke says, and some low-heat burners are really warming burners because they maintain a 150-degree temperature, which is fine for keeping a dinner warm but not for simmering your gravy.
Even though online restaurant supply companies have deep discounts on gas cooktops and ranges, you may be in for a disappointment if you hope to save on one for your home. "Ranges for restaurants have different specs and they aren't right for residential use — one could literally blow up your home," says Herschberger. The differing requirements run from commercial venting to bigger gas lines, says Weil. Even if your spacious kitchen design could accommodate the specs, your state's Health Department may ban the use of restaurant ranges in home settings. "And buying a range like that over the Internet will almost surely void the manufacturer's warranty," she says. Commercial outdoor grills are a different story. "We sell lots of them to homeowners and of course they don't need the venting," says Weil, "but before making such a large investment you should definitely check with your Health Department to find out what it allows."
