Doing research on stoves/ovens

Hi all,

My husband has said I can start doing research on getting a new stove/oven. So I turn to you all first, of course! What have you found to be good...better...and best? I have no idea about price range right now (that's where the research comes in.)

At the moment I have a 5-burner gas stove (glass surface, which I hate), and a bottom oven, also gas. The microwave is above the stove. If I lost the small cabinets above the microwave, I could probably put an upper oven there instead of the microwave, and put the microwave on the counter or island.

I will look at consumer reports, etc. but I would love to hear from actual cooks what brands tend to be better, most reliable, etc. And any features that I should look for. I have never bought a new stove or oven before...have always used whatever came with the apartment or house I moved into, so I'm a little nervous about making this big decision.

Thanks so much!
