We are in the market for a new 36" gas oven/range (freestanding). I love to cook, but don't need anything fancy. We can spend up to about $3,000. I was looking at Bertazzoni, but the ovens don't have a temp control, only low, medium, high. That kind of turned me off, in addition to comments from reviewers that there are hot spots in the oven. I then looked at Smeg, but reviewers seem to comment they are more about looks than a quality oven.
I currently have a Magic Chef that was in our house when we bought it. So you see where I'm coming from! Anything is a step up from that, haha. I don't need self-cleaning (although that would be nice), and I don't need rotisserie, convection, anything like that, just an oven with a broiler and burners on top! But I do want a beautiful range, either in stainless steel or retro looking, maybe red or burgundy. I also want it to be easy to use and of course not be a piece of junk. Five burners would be nice, or with a griddle or even a grill on it.
What do y'all have out there and happy with? Thanks so much!!!
