    Default New Oven NAD.. ok maybe a debate ;)

    I am needing a new oven/stove combo.
    I have to have a coil top, we are just really rough, use cast iron all the time, and canning also.
    So.. what I want to know is convection or standard oven.
    What have you guys used? I have never used a convection... is the learning curve steep? Will I have to rewrite all my recipes? Is it worth the hassle?
    Also which ones should I stay away from.. right now I am looking at a kenmore. Some of the reviews say the top is thin, and the top gets hot.. well the top of my old stove gets hot too.

    HELP!

    Convection is nice as it doesn't heat up the house when cooking. I don't have one but my SIL and a couple of my sisters do and they love it, not sure of the learning curve.

    I love my convection oven. Everything cooks much faster and at a lower temp but, it is not hard to figure out. For the recipes. . . I don't know. I tend to use recipes as a very rough guideline though. . . so I think that depends on how you cook.

    Is a gas range not an option? I love cooking with gas, and can't imagine going back to electric burners. I've actually not chosen apartments I otherwise loved, because they had an electric stove! I'm not fond of my gas oven, though. It doesn't stay at temperature very well and makes my kitchen hot as hell, but that's probably more an issue with the thermostat and insulation than anything else. If I were buying a new stove, then my dream is a dual fuel one with a gas range on top, a convection oven, and a warming drawer on the bottom. And I'd make sure it had plenty of insulation!

    Most people I know with a convection oven absolutely love it, and there are online converters to help you make the transition.

    Alas, I know nothing about buying ovens despite my constant use of it. We have a very specific space for one in our kitchen so our only criteria is that it fits.
