appliance roulette

Well, the range is all, "Why is the furnace getting all the love? I suck too!" The two large burners on our range--the one that was here when we moved in and electrocuted me before we discovered that it was hardwired into the wall--are giving out, and I have to jiggle the pans back and forth while I'm cooking to keep the connection going. It gets old. But thankfully, all the money we could have spent on a range has now been sunk into a new furnace that won't asphyxiate us with carbon monoxide. We're high-maintenance that way. So what do we do?

1. swap 30" for 30"
a. dual-fuel?
b. all gas?
c. electric is out because I hate those always-dirty glass cooktops
2. buy a cooktop and double wall ovens and hire out the necessary construction and retrofitting
3. buy a 48" double oven side-by-side
4. where is that stupid money tree?

It's only a matter of time before everything in the house is broken.

I would get the 48 inch w. double oven. Dual fuel. That's what I did, in part because I didn't have any wall space. I also really like the way a range looks.
