Help! DCS or Capitol 30 gas range

15 years ago

It is decision time. I had decided to go with the dcs self cleaning, convection gas range. Now I am having second thoughts, in part because the new dcs is now made by fisher paykel and may not be up to the same level as older models. After some final research, it seems as though the dcs does not have true convection or an infrared broiler. I really do want a good broiler and am not sure what the difference is between convection and true convection. I did like the 5 burner configuration of the DCS, but this is not the most important feature for me. I also read that the Capital stays cooler when the oven is on. The extra BTU power on the cooktop is less important since this cannot be vented to the outside. I will have a viking recirculating vent and I do have a window.

I really would appreciate an help in resolving this. This is such a big ticket item I really would like to get it right
