Gas range recommendations needed for baking

rhiamom | Jan 19, 201508:41 PM    

I am in the market for a new free standing gas range. The induction range I want is beyond the capability of our 100 amp electrical connection, with 200 amp service not available. Sigh.

So, I bake. I need an oven that will hold a steady, predictable temperature, even if that temperature is not exactly what the setting specifies. Convection is a plus, self-cleaning is a must. Dual ovens would be nice, but are not necessary.

My current oven: I set it for 350, waited half an hour. Oven temp 400. Next day I set it for 350, waited until signal indicated preheating was done. Oven temp 250. Sub-optimal, yes? It seems to just constantly keep getting hotter. On the bonus side, I can bake cookies just fine if I leave the oven door open while shuffling cookie sheets to cool it off some.
