The Best 36 Inch Dual Fuel Professional Ranges (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Steve Sheinkopf

The professional range is still the marquee appliance in any kitchen.

Pro ranges were introduced by Viking in the late 80s. The original idea appealed to chefs and culinary enthusiasts who wanted higher BTU and better performance (you can now have high BTU in a regular gas range just as a FYI).

Now professional products are also synonymous with upscale kitchens. The 36 inch is truly a different product than a regular 30 inch range, because it has the larger oven as well as a choice of griddle or grill.

However, the choice has become harder for you. Wolf has upgraded their range.  Viking has a new product, and Miele has designed an incredibly interesting pro range. 

So what do you choose? Well, we highlighted the best features and then compared the ranges at the end, you can choose which one is right for your home.
