Well, one of my old, trusted wall ovens finally gave out on me yesterday. The oven owes me nada; it has served me well over these last 32 years, as has its twin, which still performs well. Yes, GE certainly built made-to-last appliances back in the 70's. And although all that would need replacing is an electric element, I think the time has finally come to shop for a new double wall oven.
As you might have guessed, I'm not one to replace things just because they've fallen out of vogue, and I certainly don't need an over-the-top brand that will put all my other kitchen appliances to shame. I'm looking for something well-built that performs well, and that will last a good long while. Yes, I'll probably look for convection. But not having shopped ovens in so long, what other must-have features should I be looking for? And, most importantly, what brands would you recommend?
