I was thrilled with my dual-fuel Daycor when we first got it. Stovetop cooking with gas was very important to me as was the speed with which electric elements could bring the oven up to temperature quickly.

But in spite of paying a rather large amount of money (dual fuel stoves weren't that popular eight years ago), the oven portion has been fraught with problems.

I thought the last straw was going to be when the interior light circuit quit (the bulb is fine), but the lack of light hides how dirty the oven is.

everything works fine, but it's a basic electric...small burners, no oven light or window. I would love gas top, 6 burners, electric convection oven, second oven.

Kennmore glass top electric. If it took me a half hour to heat the oven, I'd never use it. Not big in the patience department. I don't think I've ever -- and believe me, I've cooked on and in everything -- run into an oven that took even 20 minutes to come to temp. Yours needs to be fixed.
