Ovens & Ranges

Whether you are boiling water or preparing dishes that would put the Iron Chef to shame, not only is there is a range or oven to suit your needs, but one that will reflect the personality of you and your kitchen.  There are many durable and reliable makes on the market today, such as Bosch, Kenmore, GE, ElectroluxWhirlpool, and Frigidaire, (available at Best Buy, Lowes, Menards, and Home Depot),  but the ones featured here are strictly mid to high-end.  The reason for that is simple:  they are unique, they are not what you may necessarily be accustomed to, and they are worthy of a look…! Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

Our first drool-worthy designer is an exclusive French Company named Diva de Provence that manufacturers a handful of standard, custom, stand-alone (island), and commercial designs.  The color palette is amazing, and their design is a bit old-world in look.  Their Island units would make cooking for the crowd gathered in your kitchen a dream!Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

Viking was the brainstorm of a contractor who wanted a commercial unit for home use  —  and it paid off.  Viking is an industry leader in high-performance, high-quality units.  Whether you are looking for freestanding units, cooktops, rangetops, ovens, microwaves, warming trays, or multi-use systems  —  if it cooks, they have it!  Over the last 40 years, they have expanded into refrigerator/freezers, wine cellars, icemakers, cutlery, and appliances.  The range of product in the Outdoor line can’t be beat either, both in durability and good looks.Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

Thermador Design Center has created a range of products that rivals even Viking in scope:  ranges, ovens, cooktops, ventilation hoods, microwaves, warming drawers, refrigerators, and dishwashers.  Their logo says it all:  “Our Flame, Your Fire”!Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

Wolf has it all!  Everything from sub-zero refrigeration to integrated refrigeration systems; undercounter cooling to wine storage; induction cooking to range tops; microwaves to ventilation hoods; and everything in between, including a line of outdoor grills that will be the envy of your neighborhood!Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

Founded in 1683, Gaggenau is the grandfather of them all…  their longevity speaks for itself, but their vision has kept them in business.  Their Combi-Oven incorporates steam into the convenction oven, allowing you to steam, bake, broil, simmer, braise and reheat all within one unit.  In addition, they offer ovens, microwaves, cooktops, ventilation hoods, dishwashers, warming trays, and refrigerator/freezer units.Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

Finally, you may want to check out Hoods for your new range!  Hoods allow proper ventilation above your cooktop area, reducing grease, steam and heat flow through the kitchen.  Like your new range, there are many styles and sizes to choose from  —  vent hoods are no longer the unattractive gizmos we remember from our youth  —  some look like light fixtures and some look like a modernist sculpture!   These vendors offer an interesting array of models for you to choose from:

I debated about whether or not to include pictures in this section, and ultimately decided against it.  The reason is simple:  Cooking, in any form, is unique, subject to the whims and mood of the person in the kitchen.  A cooking platform has so many variations and options, that token pictures don’t suffice.  This is coming, of course, from the woman who never cooked…Clover construction, Chicago contractors, renovation, new homes, kitchen, bathroom,

… until the day I fell in love with the run-down house that boasted a 1949 Roper Range, complete with 6 burners and 2 ovens!!   Ed still tells me I wanted the house simply because of the range —  he might just be right!  I rehabbed the entire kitchen, by myself, solely with the range in mind.  More importantly (for our kids, at least), I have cracked open the myriad of cookbooks I have, and can now put a decent meal on the table.  I am certainly not saying that a wonderful range will turn you in to a chef  —  what I am saying is that a range could very well be the singular largest appliance investment that you make  —  and you ultimately choose one because it something that you have fallen in love with…
