Five Differences between my Old Oven Range and my New Bertazzoni Master Series Range
Bertazzoni master series vs my old range
It took me a week or two to get the hang of cooking on our new Bertazzoni 30 in all gas 5 burner Master Series Range that we installed during the One Room Challenge reveal. Now that I think I’ve figured it out, I am excited to tell you about my experience. You may be wondering, what’s the difference? All oven ranges cook food, right? Well, yes, they do (or should), but not all oven ranges are created equal….And now I am starting to understand why that matters.
AFTER- Bertazzoni Master Series Range
1. Bertazzoni Master Series has fine Italian styling
I especially like the looks of the pressure valve, handle, and knobs on the front. There is nothing plastic or cheap about this set-up. Every component is sleek, HEAVY and professional.
The matte black finish is a dream, and I think it looks great against my Hague Blue cabinets and marble pinstriping.
2. Bertazzoni has a water pot boiler
This new Bertazzoni Master Series Range can boil water at lightning speed. Especially if you are using the burner on the front right. It has an inner and outer ring of fire. I was a little scared the first time I turned it on because it puts-out an impressive amount of heat, but now I am a HUGE fan!
From this view you can also see that there are 5 burners. This is an upgrade from the 4 that my old range had.
Most importantly, my food cooks more evenly than before. I was accustomed to having my food slightly burned on the outside and a tad raw on the inside. The first time I pulled out a breast of chicken from my Bertazzoni Master Series Range it took me a moment to realize that the new oven cooks the food the way it SHOULD be cooked. The convection currents blow the heat around for better distribution. I think it is fair to say that our thanksgiving turkey was definitely the best we have ever had.
Think of it as the equivilant to day time running lights. At first I wasn’t sure if I would like this feature, but it has proven to be extremely helpful. The kids are less likely to open the oven to check on the food, and it helps me to know when to pull out our dinner.
My old range had a clock on the back and this one doesn’t. I was a little concerned about how that might effect the flow of our early morning schedule, but it hasn’t been an issue. We have electronic devices sprinkled around the house so it is a non-factor. I would much rather take the looks of a sexy (clock free) range.
Also, I was surprised at how long the gas “clicks” when you go to switch it on. Now I know that there is no reason to be concerned. More clicking is by design, not anything to be worried about.
5. More oven rack options
There are more rack placement options. Since I can place my racks exactly where I want, I can bake with more precision.
We honestly love our new range so much and are truly so excited about it. It is an incredible upgrade and adds beauty, functionality, and value to our kitchen.
