Looking for recommendations on reasonably priced ranges
We have a new home, and one of the things we are eventually going to want to replace is the 30'' range. We are mostly "once a night" cooks, so I'm not so much worried about something that can take professional levels of use. I'm looking for this to come in at the $1000 range, and what I expect I won't get most of the features I want, but I would like recommendations that help me get as many features as possible.
Things we are looking for:
Self Clean oven. We use this at least once a year on our current oven, and if is a really nice feature, especially since some of our lasanges and pizza don't like to stay where they are told.
Current Temperature readout and a cook time shutoff.
Convection oven would be nice, but I don't know if we can get that in the price range we are looking at.
Single oven (or a double oven where the small drawer is on bottom and the big drawer is on top.)
I do really like a feature that I have seen on my parent's bluestar range top, where the burners have the flame coming directly up from them, rather than in a ring around the outside, and the center of the top can be removed to lower a wok down into the heat. But I don't know if this is only available on high end models?
It would be nice to have the oven controls on the front so that you don't have to reach across hot pots to get to them.
