Attention West coast cooks! (Time sensitive)

You east coast folks are probably sleeping, so here's the pressing question: I've got a 24 hour hold on a burgundy Bertazzoni all gas range... On sale at $3350. I also have access to two Berta duel fuel ranges (red & burgandy) for $5100. My oven has gasped it's last breath (the night before Thanksgiving, of course!) so this is a sudden " act quickly" sort of situation. Our family cooks and bakes daily. I have never cooked or baked with gas, so, those who have, please advise! I will likely never buy another range, so this is the "one per lifetime" purchase. Many thanks in advance for your help!

Be sure you can live with the VERY small ovens that a Berta has, as well as the odd lighting procedure.

I looked at the oven and the size was fine; no 25# turkeys here. After living without an oven light (or door handle!) for 16 years, it's all bells & whistles!

i have a wolf not a berta but can speak to cooking with gas. i love it, have cooked on gas for years and highly recommend! i bought an all gas wolf, did not feel the need for dual fuel, no regrets here!

I have an all gas Themadore 36" range, and it is fantastic. Love the gas oven, and mine also has a gas broiler which is really nice. Would never pay more to go back to electric oven.

Two's enough for me! I think I will (and really trying not to use violent references, here, but....) bit the bullet/ pull the trigger and get it! It seems that GW folks really like their Bertas and it's 50-50 over in Amazonland, where more oven concerns are expressed.
