I have a portable cooking range that I carry out to the pool deck if I want to prepare hot snacks for a party. Sometimes I don't feel like firing up an outside gas grill, so a cooking range is a more convenient option. It has four burners and a flat top grill pan, so I can cook a lot of things at the same time. It's great for frying hamburgers on the flat top and deep frying french fries on one of the burners.
I would love to get a commercial cooking range for my church. The men like to host a breakfast once a month, and a professional cooking range would make their job much easier. They could cook pancakes on a grill attachment and still make sausage and hash browns and other foods on the other burners.
