We have a 6 burner Blue Star gas stove (a Garland basically), a standard domestic gas drop in stove top and an electric wall oven with convection.

Whichever stove you buy make sure it can heat up a large pot of water in 15 to 20 minutes. A good gas stove with 22000 BTU will do that. We would have loved to have had a dual gas/electric stove with convection, as a gas oven, even with a fan is not convection. Pricey though.

With 30 or so diners the width of a commercial type stove is very useful for those wide pans particularly for oven roasted veggies.

Gas stoves these days do not have a pilot light (electronic ignitions) and codes these days make them pretty darn safe. I never smell gas from our stoves.

I am a cook and I love 'cookin with gas.' No more electric stoves for me.

Our vents are high end domestic ones with good lighting and very quiet fans.

Good luck,
