I have an 1980's black Roper with the downdraft feature, solid burners, convection oven, and the grill.

Hmm, probably should have said range instead of stove. How come it's always easier to see mistakes after you've hit submit? Oh well, I guess everyone gets the drift. I have a Maytag smooth top ceramic.

I use what my apartment complex installed. 4-top electric coil stove. I hate it. I want a gas range like nothing else.

Ours is gas, but it's probably actually somewhere between run of the mill and the professional models.

It's got an oversized convection oven, and a 'power burner' that goes something like 11,500 BTU's (can't remember off hand, but that sounds about right). Granted, that's nothing compared to the 100,000 BTU propane burners that I use when I make beer. 8)

I have a ceramic, but I would really like to convert to gas...or so I think. I've found interesting conversations here regarding the different outputs of different cooktops, so my jury is still out at the moment.

We have a 'dual fuel'; propane gas range, and electric/convection oven.

I have two hotpoint electric coil stoves. My neighborhood can't have gas, but luckily the majority of my cooking experiences have been with electric so I am very used to it. Some day I would love to have gas though.
