Turns out we have an established gas line. Its sticking up thru the floor behind the stove. Wonder how I ever missed that? One of the previous owners didnt appreciate gas, I suppose. Not sure if I'll get one anytime soon, but I'm doing research anyway. So some background: family of 4 with a 950sq ft house, sahm with 2 preschoolers, and I cook quite a bit. In the winter with my electric stove I can turn down the heat a bit b/c it heats up the kitchen, especially when I'm doing a big turkey or bread or something that cooks for long hours. we decided we'd both like a gas stove, its just a matter of finding one and budgeting for it. Its also a matter of missing that open flame . So do you have a favorite brand, or least favorite brand? Im not against buying a used stove. I love those stoves on lehmans site, but dont think I can talk him into that anytime soon, LOL. So, ideas? Thanks!!!
