    My wife and I are looking at getting a new oven/range. I am looking for a pretty specific set up that will work with our kitchen set up. We currently have an electric cooktop and an electric oven. What I am wanting is a gas cook top on an electric convection oven in a slide in unit with built in downdraft. The only thing I can find like that is a gas oven and cooktop. This may be a bit silly but my wife nor I have ever used a gas oven so we do not know if it is equally the same as an electric oven or are there some differences. I am hoping that my fellow BYCers can shed some light on this for me.

    I have always had gas (appliances) in the past. My current set up is a gas cooktop and a electric convection wall oven. The gas cooktop gives you more control with the heat. Any oven seems the same to me except with the convection more evan cooking. If I had to do it again, I would go with a gas oven and skip the convection. I don't think it was worth the money. I would also go with the largest oven I could get. But I love to cook.

    I now have a dual fuel but in the past have always had gas ovens. I don't think you can go wrong with that. It seems like the electric oven of mine is so slow to heat up!

    when I was shopping for an oven a few years ago I found several gas stove/electric oven combos out there. I didn't get one but I am sure they are still out there try something like the GE site

    I have been looking on the internet and I went to Home Depot and have not been able to find the unit that I want. JennAir has a dual fuel unit with down draft but I did not like the cooktop. It had two burners and a grill. I need 4 burners. I have a JennAir electric cooktop now that one side can convert to a grill and I never use it.
    Thanks for the input, I just have never cooked with a gas oven so did not know if or how it would differ in function from gas.
