The bottom line is, conventional sells, so we will eventually repair/replace our oven/stove top. But just how necessary is it?Even for baking there are excellent counter top convection ovens, some even that double as microwave ovens. Want to roast a turkey? There are counter top roasters for that as well. Of course there are counter top electric burners and griddles, crock pot slow cookers for your stove top needs. Even with a stove I tend to gravitate towards these individual appliances, and I use my toaster oven much more than the larger 30" oven. At the cabin we have retained the small 20" oven/4 burner that came with the place. I had once thought that when it died I would replace it with a larger 30", but now I suspect I might replace it with a 30" cabinet to store my individual cooking options. Putting a cabinet there will actually free up the corner for cabinet storage as well, access to which is now blocked by the oven. Perhaps it's a bit backwards, considering I added a dishwasher to the appliances in the kitchen and took away coveted storage space in doing so, but trust me, I USE the dishwasher. Ditto the fridge which saw us move the 10CuFt fridge to the garage and bring in an 18CuFt. But the oven? I suspect I can work around that one.IP,not looking to spend more time cooking in retirement
