Safe, easy gas stove/oven for elderly parents

beaninn | Apr 20, 2011 09:54 AM

My parents need to replace their ancient gas-spewing (pilot light goes out constantly and they do not notice) behemoth O'Keefe & Merritt stove.

My parents are in their mid-'80s and my mom has very poor vision.

As we have looked around for a new stove we find so many of them with complicated (for my parents) electronics, and display panels that are behind the burners, which my mom can't see to operate.

Can anyone recommend a safe, easy to use (with old-fashioned knobs), no pilot to light, very basic, no bells and whistles needed. They are very basic cooks.
