HELP! advice on which 30" gas range to buy, please!

cougmar | Feb 21, 2012 02:04 PM

have a 22 year old jennair electric downdraft range/oven. If I replace the countertops, it has been recommended to change out the old range, too. The appliance salesman says that since I have a downdraft, I should replace it with another jennair range and he recommends a gas oven, too. However, after reading reviews, NO ONE likes the jennair & I do not want to risk getting an unreliable range. My 22 year old range is still working well and only needed minor repairs once. I would rather remodel the kitchen for a range hood than keep the jennair brand downdraft just because that is my current set up! Any recommendations would be appreciated. I have read about Viking, Wolf, GE dual cafe, bosch and I am really confused. Also, do I want a gas oven or electric ( I really like to bake) and sealed or open burners. Thanks a lot!
