Bluestar RCS or RNB - 36inch - Open or Closed burner

last month

Hi - We are looking to upgrade our range to a 36inch range. We like the Bluestar because it is no frills and larger oven (full sheet pans) than competitors. We like the idea of the open burners but the closed burners have higher BTU and seem easy to clean and leave more room for the oven (we measured about an inch and a half difference in height) - we're not sure upgrading to the RNB is worth it.

Are the open burners noticeably better for even distribution of heat on the pots/pan than the sealed burners (since the closed burners seem like standard round burners)?

Is the RNB significantly better?
