Advice for New Stove/Oven Wanted
I wasn't sure where to post this as it didn't seem to fit anywhere else. I found the Fresh Loaf while looking for information on new stoves and ovens. I need some advice on a new oven and stove. I hope someone here can chime in. From similar posts over the years it seems that there is a fountain of knowledge here.
Here is what I know: Gas stove, limited budget ($500 - $800),
Brands: Whirlpool, GE, Maytag, perhaps Frigidare. I'm limited as the Home Warranty Co will be picking up part of the tab. I want to go up a few notches from a bare bones base model.
I live in a small entry level condo and don't want to purchase something that is too out of range.
Here is what I don't know: 4 or 5 burner. What is the difference between a 5k center burner and an 8k center burner, convection, 12,k 15k or 17k burners.
My 1960 Hardwick stove just bit the dust (its thermocoupler broke) and I'm hoping the new unit will inspire me to bake and cook more. The only problem is I cook for one. So if anyone has any ideas on that thought as well :)
