Has anyone bought the 36" pro range available at Ikea? They don't have it in Salt Lake City. I haven't been able to see it. I don't even know if it is sold in the US. Anyone has any experience with it?
Hi Ben - I haven't seen anyone here mention that they've purchased the new IKEA pro range but I do know that it is being sold in the US ... Eva has posted photos of it in the
here - from a display in Arizona. It's the PRAKTFULL range.

I saw this range last week at Ikea and it stuck me that it looked very similar to the Fratelli Onofri Evolution range that we put in our kitchen. Same look, same burner config and style, same specs. Looks like Ikea's was slightly defeatured (no digital clock/timer, no wok ring, plastic knobs, etc) but the guts appeared the same. Ikea may have sourced it from Whirlpool who sourced it from Fratelli Onofri - who knows.
I love our Fratelli though; the convection oven is huge and is helping me turn out better food. What I liked about this range is that the burners had enough firepower for me, but not too much (like other pro-style ranges) that I would have to worry a major overhaul of my ventilation system. Plus it looks great in our kitchen. We are very satisfied even though we have only been using it a couple of weeks.
Be advised that neither model is self-cleaning and since they are dual fuel (which is great for cooking/baking) they require both a gas line and a 220V electric hookup.
The Fratelli range went up in price by about $300 this year - which makes the Ikea range a good value. We got a great deal on our Fratelli though so I'm not suffering any buyer's remorse after seeing something similar show up at Ikea
Just purchased the Praktfull Pro A50 S Gas Range. This is the Canadian version of the Pro A51 S (Celsius vs. Fahrenheit markings). Did not yet install it, but can pretty much confirm it is a stripped-down Fratelli Onofri Evolution 36" (see photos). The serial no. plate confirms it is made in Italy. The digital clock timer has been replaced by a mechanical timer knob on the left on the unit. The knobs are black instead of metal and there is no mini-backsplash. Oven window and grills are slightly different. Comes with a LP gas conversion kit which, according to the label on the back of the unit, maintains the BTU ratings on par with NG.
This is the only range Ikea sells in
for about the same price as the
. All other cooktops, ovens and ranges have markups up to 50% over US pricing. With the C$ at par, it escapes me why there is such a great gap. Since Fratelli Onofri is not available in Canada, this is a great deal
. Will report back with a full review once we install it in its LP configuration.
, has anyone else in
had to pick up an appliance at the Special Order Pick-Up Warehouse (Sheffield Road location)? What was IKEA thinking? This place is located 20 km (12.5 miles) from the store in an industrial no-man's land. The signage is non-existent and the loading docks are designed for large trucks. Good thing we were two able-bodied guys to pick it up, because we had to lower the 250 pound box into our pickup OURSELVES !!! We know Ikea is a self-serve operation, but this was totally ridiculous.
IMHO means In My Humble Opinion
BTW means By The Way

So...how are the new stoves? I am considering purchasing the full unit for my reno.
I finally saw a floor unit at the
store. I asked the kitchen department staff how the response from customers has been. They said they've sold about six units and only had one returned because it was damaged. They haven't received any feedback.
Please let me know how you like your new stoves!
