Choosing a new oven
I have the opportunity to switch to a gas range due to our housefire. They have to replace our fireplace and the Maricopa county no longer allows wood burning fireplaces unless they are EPA certified. Therefore, it's more cost efficient to switch to a propane (no natural gas in our neighborhood yet) fireplace. They have given me the option. I think I'd prefer propane as I'll probably use it more, especially on nights when my husband is gone and when I just want to take the chill off the room.
The biggest bonus of propane though, an excuse to get a gas stove!!!! I love cooking on a gas stove! What I'd like to know though, is what about the oven? There are dual fuel choices, using electric for the oven, gas for the stove. This is what the guy doing the fireplace recommends. (does he really know anything about cooking?) But, is this just a fad? My main concern is the best cooking oven, efficiency being a close second.
I found a nice dual fuel range with a convection oven, two ovens stacked which matches what I currently have except right now I don't have convection. It's the same 30", basically just adding the gas stovetop and convection feature to my ovens. Currently I have a Maytag Gemini but the one I found that is similar is a Jenn-Air.
Any recommendations? My goal is to stay under $2,000. Insurance will not be paying for my new oven.
