oven range purchase recommendation
I'm looking for a white freestanding range with convection oven. I currently own a Frigidaire range which has been in my townhouse, but temperature knobs start being loose and I can't control the temperature anymore, very annoying.
I love cooking and have participated in farmers market to sell my Asian artisan breads, so oven is very important. My friend recommended me Viking, Wolf, or Jenn Air though they are too expensive for me. My budget would be less than 1K.
I didn't know much about oven nor range, so I did window shopping at Lowes, Sears, and Best Buy, and learned about the cool features/specs I didn't know. I learned alot from window shopping, but it also confused me what is reasonable for spec&quality.
-convection (it was new to me... there are also "True convection" or "Third element convection")
-hidden bake element (easy to clean, taking longer time to heat)
-single/double oven (I'm not sure about this... double sounds good to be able to bake more, but no storage space)
-smooth top (although, I read reviews of some products and learned it's slow heating, such as taking forever to boil)
-touch panel control (instead of knob... sounds like a spaceship feature to me!)
This is the one I'm considering, Kenmore from Sears:
Although, some people says Kenmore brand breaks after 1 year, and have to pay to fix it if you don't buy extra warranty.
Does anyone have any recommendations for range to buy? Or any spec/brand I should look for? (oh, it's gotta be an electric one, not a gas)
