Need suggestions for new oven

Boo hoo! My oven broke and I need a new one. The old one was constantly shutting itself off mid-bake. I don't have the luxury to choose any oven I want because I rent from my mother-in-law and she will be paying for it. It must be electric, range-top and not too expensive. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help.

You don't need anything fancy; a simple knob for temperature adjustment with no electronic controls is the cheapest way for your M-I-L. But oven capacity differs with each range. This matters if you bake a lot of bread so measure the inside space betwen the walls.
