    Default Spinoff of the oven taking hostages.... What's a good oven?

    I'm getting a new stove/oven in the next few weeks.

    Suggestions?

    Requirements:
    Stainless color
    Gas
    30" I think

    I would prefer one that does not have a reputation of becoming possessed or taking hostages.

    I purchased a Jenn-air range about 2 years ago and am quite happy.

    30"
    gas cooktop with 5 burners
    small oven, electric
    regular oven, electric, convection option

    ummm, both ovens have self-cleaning feature which I know we've used successfully, but after the poor chicken saga I know I'll be hesitant the next time.

    I have one (came with the low-income apt.) that is, apparently "convection." All i know is there's a fan running all the time, food cooks much faster and more evenly and the costs are MUCH lower. It's an electric Whirlpool.

    I have a Wolf dual-fuel, gas burners/electric oven. I love it.

    I had a Kitchenaid a couple of houses ago and really liked that one, too.

    I've used the self-cleaning feature on both without incident, by the way!

    Would not recommend Viking. Too expensive and had repair man out twice in the first year. Needs it again now. Very disappointing.

    I have a Dacor duel fuel, gas burners and electric oven that is also convection.

    There are six burners, the two in the middle can be used with a griddle.

    I love it. The only the I had to get used to was the fact that the oven held its heat for SO long after I turned it off. With our other oven I would fix something to be ready 30minutes-1 hour before dinner was to be served and I could have it behave like a warming oven. I made mac and cheese in the new oven the first time and left it in the oven for 1 hour after I had turned the oven off. When I took it out, let's just describe the mac and cheese as being "crispy", I was shocked to see that the oven had held the heat so lond that it continued cooking. I now know if I want to use the oven as a warmer to hold the food, I need to crack the oven door to allow some heat to escape.

    Stay away from Frigidaire. Mine has had nothing but problems.

    Not sure of your price range. We had a less than $2000 price range, and we were actually just talking yesterday about how much we LOVE our Bosch oven/range we bought a few years ago. It has convection and regular baking, and the cooktop is wonderful with big grates that cover the entire cooktop, and a variety of flame sizes. It is also so simple a design it is easy to clean!

    You can get a good deal on them at Sears

    I love my GE Profile. It's dual fuel, gas stove and convection oven. You also have the option to turn off convection and it will automatically adjust convection temp for recipe. It did lock the other day, someone must have leaned on the buttons. We just pressed 9 & 0 and it was fine. I've had it 7 years without anything breaking. Now frantically knocking on wood, lol.
