Our oven is giving us problems. It won't control the temp properly and the problem seems to be the oven thermostat. Of course the part is about $100 and it's now time to decide if it's worth fixing or replacing the stove. What we have now is a 12 year old 30" Hotpoint GAS range, 4 burner, manual clean oven. We don't have any real problem with the design or function of the stove when it's working properly. If we decide to replace what features should we consider and what brands seem to be the best. Of course we'll be sticking with natural gas for fuel.
