I am appealing to you for oven/range purchasing assistance. (seriously) I came home from my 3rd last day of work to find that my range (Bertazzoni - gas) is completely dead. This is the second time it has died in 3 months...the last problem (termocouple) was fixed by my very tenacious DH after 3 wrong parts were supplied. Now there is absolutely no gas even flowing to the unit. I hate the oven anyway - I can only use one rack as *everything* burns unless i put a pan covered with foil on the bottom rack and some kind of diffuser on top of it (baking stone etc) I'd love an oven that could actually regulate temperature...Here are my issues:
1. The DH (based on BAD experiences and being an engineer) refuses to have any range that relies on electronics to function. Which is why we bought Bertazzoni - which lasted 13 years - longer than any other range we have had. (sad right?)
2. I want a self cleaning oven which is in direct conflict with number 1. (maybe the DH is the self clean?)
3. I would think that dual fuel would solve the oven temperature regulation issue, and the self clean issue but there are so many choices, and the reviews on some are horrible.
Anyone have any comments? suggestions? The internet is sending me to look at Blomberg and Bosch. Yes No maybe so?
Thanks in advance.
