oven woes

KaimukiMan | Aug 23, 201106:59 PM     5

I have an old Modern Maid range where the oven is located above the burners. The oven and three of the four burners on the range have died. It can not be repaired, and no one manufactures a range in this configuration any more (pic below is similar, but mine is all electric)

I have a VERY small kitchen (5 feet wide by 8 feet long) so giving up the cabinet space under the range will hurt, not to mention it will require rebuilding the cabinets in that area, if not the whole kitchen.

I am thinking of installing a simple 4 burner cooktop at counter height with an advantium (or similar) microwave/convection oven above. Has anyone had experience with these, the over stove type? Comments? Warnings? Praises? The existing oven isn't full size now, so I don't know that the limited space is going to be a problem. Due to the existing wiring (condominium, limited options) it would almost have to be a 120v model, not the 240v model.

Thanks in advance for your input.
