"The induction cooktop, while not yet a part of most households, is becoming increasingly accepted as a useful, energy-efficient method of preparing food," according to a fact sheet produced by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Michigan Technological University. The cooktops contain coils made of a magnetic material. When current passes through the coil, it produces a magnetic field that transfers to the pan above it. The pan and its contents heat up but neither the cooktop nor the air above it becomes hot. When the pan is removed, the energy transfer stops.

Very few people are really going to use an oven to complete capacity, Franke says, so those extra cubic feet might not be that important. Some ovens have racks that divide so you can cook a standing rib roast and then put in a half rack for your biscuits or sweet potatoes.

The steel content of the cookware can be tested by taking a small magnet to the store. But, Fisher Knott says, clients don't bat an eye at this limitation, either. "Today, cooking has become an important part of the social activities of the home, and good cookware is part of that. Often, buying new cookware is part of the kitchen remodel anyway. We explain that the cooktop and cookware are part of a complete cooking system, so they plan on that."

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.

Not that there's anything wrong with the reliable standby for freezing freshly caught fish, the summer berry harvest or loads of casseroles for maternity leave. But chest freezers are just not attractive enough to look at in the kitchen, so don't count on them as an integral part of your design.

So the turkey roasted, then cooled, then roasted, then cooled, and I spent several sleepless nights wondering if I'd poisoned my nearest and dearest with inadequately cooked poultry. I finally saved my dollars and bought a spanking new smoothtop electric range. It's amazingly easy to clean, the electric elements do a great job on everything from high-temperature searing to low-temperature simmering and the oven is large enough to accommodate an entire holiday feast (and cook it at the right temperature!).

If you're going to the expense of including high-end grills, surfaces and appliances outside, don't neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers, task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers, ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don't forget to include comfortable seating.

If you've been bitten by the all freezer bug, take the benefits and shortfalls into consideration before choosing one for a remodel, says Justin Breckle, branch manager for Roth Concept Center in St. Louis. His company has lavish showrooms in six American cities that display the latest appliances in complete kitchens. Pick a size based on what your space will allow and how often you use the freezer. While units like the 36-inch Sub-Zero All Freezer are very attractive, "you should first consider how much food you store," he says. "If you're the type who goes to the store every couple of days for the freshest stuff or eats mostly organic produce, you probably don't need a separate freezer at all. If, on the other hand, you have lots of kids or you're always on the go and eat lots of frozen dinners, that large freezer might make sense."
