new oven preheat time
My 20 year old range--very basic Magic Chef model--finally died and I bought a new GE (model JB690 from Lowe's) because it was a Consumer Reports best buy. I was very disappointed to discover that it takes 15 minutes for it to preheat to 400 degrees. My old range would get there in 6 minutes. This is a big deal with a houseful of teenagers who want their frozen pizzas done ASAP.:) I talked to the salesperson at Lowe's and they will take it back within 30 days, but she said that all new stoves with the hidden oven element were slower to preheat. Really? Does anyone know of an electric range I can buy new for $900 or less that will heat up quickly like my old one? Or will I have to try to find a used one with the old style oven element?
I appreciate your help!
