In fact, when I need a cutting board for dinner prep, I tend to grab a not-as-pretty, but easy-to-clean board and keep the teak board out mostly for decoration.

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.

Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top, Franke says. Smoothtops also require a special cleaner. If you're not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils, which are inexpensive and easy to replace, or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can't leak down underneath.

If you're ready to up your at-home coffee game, you might want to consider a Nespresso. This pod-based espresso/cappuccino maker is easy to use, makes delicious coffee, and looks pretty snazzy sitting out on your counter. If there's anything that can break a daily Starbucks habit, this might be it.

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."

While online restaurant supply houses bring in goods from splatter covers and barbecue spatulas to cases of wine glasses, a few of the more modest-size items also seem to fly off the websites, both because they're better quality and because they look like the stuff used by "real" chefs and caterers.

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.

Ken Dempsey has one in his own kitchen and says, "If you have a schedule-crazy household like me, once you have one, you'd never want to live without it again. It keeps food at the ideal temperature, without drying it out and without cooking it more."

If you're always scrambling to get dinner ready fast, you might want a combination thermal/convection oven, which cooks with a fan that circulates hot air so items cook more quickly and brown more easily. Convection ovens have improved dramatically in the last few years, says, Sharon Franke, director of food appliances for Good Housekeeping magazine and the Good Housekeeping Institute, which evaluates new ranges on a regular basis.
