Replacing Dacor Electric Convection Oven - Options?

GoodChowFan | Feb 13, 2012 11:39 AM

We're reluctantly replacing an almost 20-year old Dacor electric convection 30" wall oven. Any suggestions about what might be similar? I hear very mixed things about current Dacor models. I want a true convection oven, and have loved how the Dacor cooks . . . unfortunately, one of its fans has developed a horrible screeching noise that appears unfixable.

While we're at it, we may replace the electric ceramic cooktop - also almost 20 years old, Jenn Air. I've been very happy with it, and am not interested in gas or induction. I've seen lots of other messages here about inability to control heat levels, etc. with ceramic electric, but I've never had this issue - in fact, one of the things that I've loved about our current Jenn Air cooktop is that it will maintain very low temps, like slightly below simmer.

I'm not looking for anything fancy re: controls, etc. in either the oven or the stovetop, and don't care about brand names one way or the other - but I do cook a lot, and care about performance temperature reliability. With 2 daughters not far away from college, we need to avoid the very highest price range.
