In the same boat here, our 15+ year old kenmore gas range thats running propane is on its last legs, only 3 of the four burners work correctly and correctly still takes 15 minutes to boil water??? problem here is that our dishwasher and fridge and overhead microwave are all the bisque color. wife wants ss of course. but the other appliances are no where near the end of their life. so its a waste of money to upgrade them all and id rather not have miss matching appliances. regaurdless im looking for a 5 burner gas stove with convection for under a grand. sears has a fridgeair and a kenmore in the 900$ range. anyone know if these are decent brands?
