Double Oven Help Needed
Hi, I am new to this forum and would greatly appreciate any help.
I having been scouring the web looking for info to help me with a purchase of a 27 inch double electric oven. I am not looking for the very top of the line, but would like something that is higher end.
I am totally confused by the conflicting things I am reading online, in Consumer Reports and being told by the appliance salesmen. I have been told that the Thermador is best in the $3000 price range, but I have read the problems when you use the self-cleaning feature. The same applies to the Kitchen Aid. One salesman suggested the Electrolux and another the Dacor.
Since I am replacing a 20 year old appliance, I am sure that anything I buy will be a great improvement. However, I don't want headaches with the electrical circuits as a result of using the self-cleaning feature. I also don't want heat emanating from the oven when I cook, as I have read with some ovens.
I am also concerned with the interior space of the ovens. There are some bake pans that don't fit into my 27 inch oven now, and I see that some ovens (like the Thermador) have narrower usable interior space as a result of the interior metal brackets). Also, I can't rework my cabinet space and the new oven needs to fit into the allocated 25 1/2 space.
Can anyone make some recommendations to me? Thank you!!
