HI ERIC, I ENJOY YOUR WEB SITE. I have to buy a oven range and have a budget of 700 and under. What is a good brand my old GE was 20yrs .
My response to Peter is:
I recommend that you pick a oven/range with the most features and the best warranty within your budget. Use the checklist below to help you on your venture.
Checklist for cooking products
I also recommend before you go to the store to select and purchase a range, cooktop, oven, etc., that you take the time to fill out the following checklist to take with you. Check all that apply to your selection:
Check the area available for the range
These measurements are the cut-out measurements not the old range measurements. Also make sure that the range can fit through the openings of the house, so that it can be installed where you want it.
The type of range you are looking for:
__Free-standing with one oven
__Eye-level (High-low) with two ovens
__Eye-level with one oven
Type of oven you are looking for:
__One over, one under
__Separate built-in oven(s)
__On back console
__On range front
__Automatic oven clock/timer
__Eye-level controls on hood
__Controls on back splash
__Controls at front of cooktop
__Roast temperature probe
__Built-in down draft
__Vent-microwave oven combination
__Hood attached to upper oven
__Vent over regular cooktop
__Vent over grill/griddle cooktop
The color of the range preferred

Additional information on warranties, safety, recalls, and maintenance must be taken
into account when purchasing a range. Ask the salesperson for a demonstration
on the range you are considering.
