Convection Microwave (etc)
I'm in the beginning planning stages of a complete gut/kitchen remodel. I've hired a designer/architect but don't yet have any of her layout proposals. I have a small city rowhome & my kitchen is fairly small as well.
When we met, I told the designer that I don't cook much - but do use the microwave to heat up frozen meals. I heat water for tea & sometimes cook eggs on the range's gas stovetop, but rarely use the oven.
She suggested that instead of my current 30" gas range & microwave, I might want to just get a gas cooktop and a wall/over range convection microwave. I'm wondering if convection microwaves work just as well as traditional microwaves for heating frozen meals, microwave popcorn & re-heating leftovers.
For someone who is not much of a cook, does this sound like a reasonable option? I'm not planning to sell my house for many years to come, so re-sale value is not that important.
