OK-here's the deal. I have an old (20+yrs) Thermadore Prefessional 6 burner that we inherited with the house. I love to bake, but geez this beast has been frustrating! It takes about 45 minutes to preheat and really makes the kitchen/house very hot (I wonder about the shielding). I have had it serviced and this is as good as it gets. I love to bake and I have noticed since this house, my baked goods are inconsistent. Ergo, time to get a new range. We have been researching, pounding the pavement, etc. with conflicting reports. Is the oven on the Blue Star going to satisfy me or should I really get a duel fuel? I should also mention that the wok has been collecting dust since I can't get it hot enough on our stove, but I have also been really frustrated by our simmer burner that does not simmer! Any thoughts?
