Hi, Everyone!

- What kind of stove/range do you have?
- Do you like it?

I have a Frigidaire smooth top convection stove, similar to the one pictured. For most 30-inch models, Frigidaire has one of the largest ovens at 5.4 cu. ft. I really like it. (The circuit board is now replaced, and it is up and running. Yippee!)

Vicki

Hey Vicki, So glad you finally have your stove fixed...Now let the baking begin! Now you're probably not going to believe this but I have a 1967 white Frigidaire electric range. It was in the house when we bought it ands we had to buy a refrigerator and couldn'y afford both, so I decided I had to use..even though I don't like or should I say Hate to cook on electric. That's been 7 years ago and I have learned a few tricks on how to cook on it and just haven't replaced it yet. I feel like Racheal Ray sometimes...she cooks with an old stove on her show! Debbie

This stove was a BIG improvement from my 1970's avocado green electric stove - two burners would not cool down to simmer, and the other two burners would barely heat. Debbie - Is your stove still functioning well?

Hi Vicki,

That stove looks exactly like mine. Mine is black and I couldn't tell by that pic, but mine has a middle burner on the left so you can "connect" the two burners which is great for long pans (pancakes!) I also have a warming drawer on the bottom which is great when preparing huge dinners, keeps sides, rolls warm, etc. The convection oven works really well, however, I only use it with quick/frozen snack type foods or french fries. I recently bought an oven thermometer because I thought I'd check out the areas (temps) and every area is consistent!

I'm like Debbie, I thought I would HATE cooking on electric, but I'm getting used to it and have learned to make adjustments. The only thing I absolutely DO NOT like is baking cakes and breads in an electric oven of any kind. But oh well, what's a girl to do? (hubby doesn't give me an option Sad ) I can't complain though, if I HAVE to have electric, this one is the mac daddy of all. My only regret is that I almost got a double oven with seperate temps instead of the warming drawer, I think I would have used the double ovens way more.

About 3-4 yrs ago my DH and I were at Sears and I spotted a beautiful Maytag Gemini stainless steel double oven. I wanted it soooo bad, I kept going over and looking at it. My hubby finally told me if you want it...get it!! I was elated. We brought it home that night and think we got it hooked up the same night. Ours runs on propane and I can't say enough great things about it. I love the fact I can bake 2 things at one time using 2 different temps.

Ohhhh Jennifer, I have oven envy. I love cooking with gas, and would love to be able to cook in two ovens two different temperatures.

Jennifer - I want yours! I have a gas range right now but we've moved 14 times in 15 years so I've had it all at some point. I LOVE cooking with gas though but I know the really nice electric stoves (like the kind I've never had) do have decent temperature control. That was always my biggest complaint about electric. I'll love my gas stove for as long as I have it (until the summer I guess) and then I'll have to get used to a new one, yet again.

Ddpie -
My stovetop does not have a bridge, but that was one feature I looked for when we were on the market for a new stove. Our stove was the last one of that model, which we found at a clearance price. Do you use the bridge very often?

Jennifer -
While I was growing up, one of the homes had a double built-in ovens, both full size. You definitely have an advantage with two ovens. I can tell you are enjoying your stove AND both ovens! Smile

Linda -
Did you get gas or electric?

Vicki

Good morning
I am finally getting on, I bought a electric stove similar to the photo. I like the bigger oven, it has a small drawer which is fine. Just been using it, having baked yet, will be doing that tomorrow. So far I like it

Here is mine. It is a Jenn-Air D120 convection oven, an oldie but a goodie! I wondered how I would do with electric when I was deciding where to live. It isn't the same as gas convection but it does a nice impression of one Smile



Ignore the silly dog in the reflection. I was working on his dog treats and had his full attention...
