My lovely magic chef contractors special range that was here when we moved in stopped working this morning - the oven is no longer working so instead of repairing it (oven was always temperamental) we are going to go for it and get a range that I might actually like and not have to look inside each time at the thermometer to figure out what it is and keep fiddling with the dial to get it to the right temp ;)
It would be a 30" range - and I am lost! We looked at a few ranges years ago, but there is so much more on the market I thought some of you can chime in.
We currently have a gas hookup and I *think* I would prefer having gas plus electric oven, but that is not a show stopper. The budget is probably around 2.5K and I don't need anything truly professional, but I do a lot of baking and cooking and I would like to have a larger oven capacity. Some of the "pro" models I saw a while back seemed to have smaller oven spaces. The only pro oven I seemed to like was the American Range, but that was a few thousand out of my price range.
The GE cafe and Jenn Air are coming up as being something that might work.
Any ideas of where to start or other sites that might be helpful, brands to stay away from?
