Re: Need new stove
I would recommend deciding on all the features you want/need, then look for brands that have those things. Look for reviews on line of the brands you're interested in, search for repair records to make sure you're not getting a lemon.
I'm not a fan of gas because I've yet to find a gas appliance that has good flame control or a flame that can go low enough to simmer a pot without boiling or blowing out.
An issue we've had with our "top of the line" Kenmore is that the electronic controls are directly above the oven vent, basically putting a computer in the hottest location on the appliance, which has fried twice in 10 years. That may not seem like a big deal, but like the oven fire you experienced, once is too many times, particularly when you've paid top dollar for an appliance.
