We'll start our run-down of professional ranges (available to retail consumers like us) with the Thermador 30" Pro Harmony All-Gas Range with 4 Star®Burners, mostly because our mom has always said "Thermador is the best, Thermador is the best!" (she's in the biz), plus, its little blue knobs caught our eye.
We like that it has a relatively large oven capacity (4.4 cubic feet - no sense in not fitting in your Thanksgiving Turkey in), and four very powerful burners. Many professional units have burners that range in power, which seems a little gimmicky. Why not have them all be rock-stars?
Here are the stats:
Burners: 4 Star® burners (five-point design) @ 15,000 BTU/hour, can simmer as low as 375 BTU/hour
Oven Capacity: 4.4 cubic feet
Rack Positions: 5
Number of Racks: 3
Dimensions: ~36"h, 30"w, 26.5"d
MSRP: $3,849.00 USD
