While many retailers advertise a "professional" line of electric ranges, they just don't put out enough BTUs for flashing fish or searing meats. "You can't have a pro kitchen with an electric cooktop," she says.

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 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.

"A pro fridge like a Sub-Zero is huge and it's really meant for people who need to store a lot of ingredients for constant cooking," says Sue Adams. "They do have better seals on the doors and compartments at different temps so different things won't spoil, and special gaskets so odors won't go from one compartment to another.". But if you're not a fervent cook, the big fridge is unnecessary, she says. "You can afford to let a lot of milk go sour for the difference in price between a Sub-Zero and a residential model," she says. If you do opt for a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Adams advises against the optional glass doors. "Do you really want people to see inside your refrigerator?" she asks. "And if all they'd be seeing is your takeout boxes, you may want to reconsider the purchase altogether."

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.

For items that you use more than once a week, go ahead and leave them out. I use my handheld vacuum on the daily, and this one is so beautiful, I almost want to hang it on the wall like it's a piece of art.

After a decade of constant struggle with an ancient Amana range (just like the ones Monty Hall used to give away in the 1970s on "Let's Make a Deal!"), the final blow came on Thanksgiving. I put the lovingly stuffed 20-lb. turkey in the oven and set it at 325 degrees, only to find, after hours of basting and checking meat thermometers and fiddling with the dial, that for some inexplicable reason the oven wouldn't work at any temperature lower than 350 degrees.
