Double Wall Ovens, Electric and Convection- Experiences and Advice Welcome!

monavano | Jun 11, 201207:32 AM

I am getting my kitchen redone and all appliances are being replaced. I am satisfied with all of my decisions except the wall ovens, where I'm dithering back and forth between the GE Cafe and the KitchenAid Architect 30 inch convection ovens.
I have seen positive feedback about the KitchenAid (except one complaint of a loud cooling fan), but virtually nothing about the GE Cafe, and I'm wondering why.
Both ovens are in the upper 2K-3K range, and I really do not want to spend any more. That's the ceiling for me.
I like the look of the GE as the handles would match the refrigerator I've picked. I like the KitchenAid's full glass, top to bottom windows. Both control panels seem neat and functional without being fussy (no "pizza and popcorn" settings). Both interiors are about the same with convection, a sliding rack and hidden heat elements (not the broilers).

Also, just fyi, I'm considering a Frigidaire Gallery and Professional which will save several hundred dollars.

I need to come up with a decision soon so any input would be helpful.
Are there brands in this price range that I should consider?
I want:
double electric ovens
30 inches
I'd like a probe
convection in at least one of the ovens
sliding racks are nice
no twee settings for popcorn and pizza!

Thanks you!
