Looking for advice for a range under $2000...

My old oven - electric coils,non-convection oven - bit the dust. Only one burner works, two layers of glass inside of the oven have was already struggling when we bought our house (range included) 15 years ago.

So, I'm looking for a new one for under $2000. We have gas in our home, so we COULD run a gas line to the stove, but the cost of that would have to be included. I also read a few consumer reports that found that, while gas has faster temp response, electric have a wider range of temps and can maintain low temps more accurately while also heating faster. So I am open to electric...

I would adore double ovens, but at least one oven needs to be able to hold a 15 lb turkey in an all-clad roasting pan. And convection is a must - I've been dreaming of convection for 15 years!

Consumer reports recommends a Frigidaire FGEF308TNF for my price range, but I can't tell if those double ovens are big enough for a decent sized turkey...

The GE Profile PS978STSS is also recommended, but is a little more than we wanted to spend.

What do you think? Any advice on either of these models, or is there something else you would recommend?

Thanks so much!
