Hello, 

I am looking for a new oven too. I don't know anything about ovens. Absolute zero. But i prefer gas ones because electric is expensive. But is there any difference between electric oven and gas oven?

I've finally read something about gas oven and electric oven. If I'm not mistaken. I've read that gas oven bakes unevenly. I've google it and many people use baking stone, pizza stone, ceramic tiles, etc. How about a convection gas oven? A convection gas oven distributes heat evenly right? 

I don't need a big oven now. A medium size oven is enough for now. I'm just doing some baking for my friends & family and maybe selling cookies during Chinese New Year.
