So yeah, Beth, that's what I'd get if I were you.
Perfect for a one or two person household.

Oh, I would love an Aga but it proably wouldn't be very practical in a town residence. They originated in Scandinavia I think and they go on and on for ever. A friend lives in a rented farm cottage in Wiltshire and when she moved in 5 years ago the owner told her that the Aga was fairly new......It was only installed in 1952!!

Sparrowpit isn't that far from me - about 12 miles as the crow flies.

For those who replied with the Maytag, Samsung, and Jenn-Air preferences, can you tell me what model you have used? In the past, I have baked a lot, so am interested in the baking qualities of the range.

I am only interested in 30 inch, residential ranges. I have access to a commercial grade gas range at the community house where I will be building.

Thanks for your comments!
Sorry, Beth, I rambled on because over here in the UK a range cooker is one with umpteen burners and ovens, etc. I didn't realise you were looking for a small cooker.

Yes, I agree that a great cooker won't make a great cook out of a dreadful one but a good cook is vastly helped by a good cooker. Trying to cook a three course meal for 20 people like my grandmother used to do at Christmas is certainly easier on a big modern cooker than on her ancient one oven, three burner cooker

This is what I am getting on the 18th. I'm not sure how it will be, but it looks like what I am wanting, and it is in our budget.

Ooooh. Nice, Chopper! I have a GE glasstop, so easy to keep clean! You get an extra burner!

One of "my" kids did warn me, don't sit on it.

chopper, your stove looks a lot like mine. The back middle burner is for keeping food warm on mine. Is that what yours is?

Ain't that the truth PF! My mom's even had a well for slow cooking things like New England Boiled Dinner. It's the stove I learned to cook on,and I just loved that thing.

My down to earth but well heeled neighbor swears by her dual fuel AGA.
