It was not in our plan to buy a new range, but our oven has been out for close to a month. Before that, we just kept trying to fix it. It definitely needed to be replaced, but we waited until it completely died before we gave in. We went to Sears just to look at a cheap replacement, but the salesman had a better idea. He had a special order that ended up getting cancelled. So we took a look. We ended up getting an $1100.00 range for over 50% off. It is a kitchenaid, with glass top 4 burners, a warming burner, oven and convection oven. It is nice!! It doesn't completely go in our yucky kitchen, but it sure is beautiful!!
