Hello Everyone,

I was looking into purchasing one of the following ranges. Just wondering if anyone has any input or feedback on the models below.

Frigidaire Professional Stainless

Model CPCS389EC
http://www.frigidaire.ca/english/product.asp?id=172

Model CPGS389EC

http://www.frigidaire.ca/english/product.asp?id=160

Thanks,

Lisa

The Kitchenaid model's oven can be a bit tight small at only 4.1 cu ft (the frigidaire isn't that much larger at 4.2).

The 'true' convection system takes up more space than a freestanding range.

opinions will vary, but i believe that gas oven/gas range is the best. dual fuel is a fancy term, but a gas oven heats up faster than electric.

I have done some research on Ovens and it seems for baking, electric is better as it is bakes more evenly. So if you are a baker I would personally choose dual fuel.

some ovens do have hotspots, but with convection (forced air), both gas and electric should heat evenly.
