Finally, after 10 years of hating the stove I have I am getting a new one!!!! I have wanted one with the two ovens; one small and one regular sized. If you have or had one of these types, a penny for your thoughts. Do you love it, hate it?

A little late for the turkey but well in advance of Santa,

Yep. I do.. my model is a Maytag.. but I did not buy it for that reason.. I purchased the Maytag as the smaller oven was on the top.. below the stove burners.. the larger oven is below the smaller one..
For the reason I thought I would use the smaller oven the most.. I decided I liked that set up the best. Most of the models I looked at had the smaller oven below the large one.
Btw.. In spite of it having the small oven. the large oven is quite sufficient.. they did not seem to carve out any space from it to have the small oven too.. And my racks roll out, so easy to stoop down and retrieve the food.
I use the large oven for holiday cooking .. that means maybe three time a year.. The small one gets used everyday almost.. We do a lot of biscuits in it..
I could have used a toaster type oven.. but they are really too small inside..and I don't like having them on the counter.
I love my stove. if anything happens to it.. I will replace it with the same or like model.
Do be aware of the low ceiling height in the smaller oven. so that when and if something rises while baking it will not touch the elements.

Pigling, could we see a picture of your stove? Would love to see that.

I've admired that stove. My DD did, too, saying "it's just right for a pizza." The major food group....

Yes, I am thinking of the Gemini but the Kenmore version of it. We do not have a great Maytag dealer but Sears here has been superior on all my other appliances.

The one I looked at the other day has the smaller oven on the top.

I had not thought about the ceiling height of the smaller oven so I will revisit that before I write the check. My intent is to use it for the major food group that Karla mentioned and lasagne type casseroles.

Thanks.

We are moving to a house that has a poopy little electric range, the kind with the swirl heating elements. Total ugh after having a gas range and a wood cookstove! I'm lusting for something like this. It costs as much as a car, LOL, but a girl can dream.

Yeah, I saw this one too...........sigh............

The fact that it will not fit in my kitchen saved me from this one. That and I live in a 1959 house that doesn't have gas.

Here's what I dream of having, a LaCanche:



But I'll never see one in this house. The model I want starts at $10,000.
