Just bought a place and the oven has seen better days.. 2002 Whirlpool Gold, 30'' gas free-standing range, 4 burners. All of the burner grates are almost bare of their porcelain (?) coating, and overall looks in bad shape. Thought I'd replace it as all the other appliances are fine. Everything matches, so I'd like to keep it that way, so only something with the black/stainless combo for colors. Also, would like to keep it below $1k if possible, but willing to go above if there's one I have to get.
I feel I'd like a 5-burner model if they are worth it - the middle burner seems useful. Not sure if ranges this small have the option to come with a grill or anything like that in the middle (or anywhere I guess), but that would catch my eye if so.
This looked interesting to me from Lowes:
5 burner, and you can put the griddle/grill over the middle burner.

Any ideas/recommendations? Things to look for?
