Just Brought Home a 30″ Capital Duel Fuel Range – Connoisseurian
I’m always asked what appliances I have in my home. I think people assume that I have some commercial trophy kitchen with all best of breed appliances.
Actually nothing could be further from the truth. Well, until now.
When Nik and I moved to Westchester 5 years ago the house had an old 30″ KitchenAid range – a KGS907SSSS if I remember correctly.
While all of the other appliances were eventually swapped out, we hung onto the range out of sheer laziness until last week when I was given the opportunity to bring home a new Capital 30″ duel fuel Connoisseurian range (this is the dual fuel version of their open burner Culinarian series).
My first impression – wow. Beautiful range. Fit and finish is perfect, and the range knobs and doors just feel soooo solid.
My second impression – the &#^@* range doesn’t fit into the cutout!
My third impression – what performance!
We cook (alot) and the old KitchenAid range would take up to 15 mins to boil a pot of water for our Sunday pasta dinners.
So we decided to test the Capital duel fuel range right away by making Spaghetti alla Puttanesca which of course would entail having to boil water. So what was the result?
3 minutes for the water to boil. No joke. Talk about volcanic power.
Did I tell you about all the other treats this range came with? The rotisserie? Multiple rolling racks? The glass infrared broiler which is used in various steakhouses across the country? In due time they will be tested and reported on…with the utmost honesty and transparency.
That’s important to note b/c I need to maintain my “blog cred” and I cannot and will not come across as a shill for Capital. That would be doing the readers and customers a disservice and if you’re familiar with my blog and video output over the last 3+ years, you know the Appliance Dude is all about the accurate, clear and HONEST information. So, the good, the bad and the ugly will all be reported, if they rear their head.
