Oven and Micro to go with BS or CC
My wife and I are redoing our kitchen from top to bottom and are considering a couple of options for the cooking appliances. One scenario would have us getting either a BS or a CC range. If we go that way, we need some help picking a stainless wall oven and a microwave that will go above the oven in the wall. From a dollars and cents perspective and from a usable size perspective, we think that a countertop microwave that we will use a trim kit for is the right way to go for us.
Having considered how we cook and what we bake, we have determined that we do not need a steam oven or speed oven. In fact, we need something reliable, not spectacular. Much of what we do is roasting, with a limited amount of broiling and baking that is normally brownies and doctored cake mixes. We want a good, regular 30" electric convection oven. And, because the oven in the range will be limited in features, we care about an auto start or delay start where we can set the oven to start cooking at a set time. And, a keep warm or proof setting would be nice, as would a probe in the oven. We do not need to have an oven that has preset programs for particular recipes or types of food.
We want the oven and the micro in the trim kit above it to look good together and presumably that means the same brand. Does anyone have any recommendations for a brand and models that meet these requirements? Your help would be much appreciated.
