When my old oven bit the dust (and only one of the burners was fully fuctional) I wanted something solid, well-made, attractive and built to last longer than the lousy 5 years I got out of my last stove/oven. I wrangled with my husband over several brands and models -- he was all about price, I wanted something I could reliably cook and bake in with minimal fuss. After several dissapointing visits to various stores that just ended in further arguments, a friend directed us to her cousin's applience shop. Within 5 minutes of our walking in the door he knew exactly what we needed and showed us this beauty. Stainless steel to match the rest of my kitchen was the icing on the cake! (which bakes PERFECTLY in this convection oven!) The price was right, and I look forward to many years with this range/oven as a partner in the kitchen rather than a dreaded foe. An asset to any kitchen and any cook.
