I'm thinking of buying a gas range (cook stove) to replace an electric range (w/convection oven) that I have. I would love to hear from anyone who's had a gas stove. I've used a few, in various settings, but never have owned one. I have heard that gas ovens are not as convenient as electric ovens, but I know there is a clear benefit to the gas cooktop, at least from what I've read and know about how they work. I suppose they do make combo electric oven/gas cooktops. One of the reasons, though, that I want to look into a gas appliance is that they can be used even when the electricity fails. So, give me any and all of your comments and experiences. Thanks.
