Jenn-air appliances

hi everyone! it's been a long time! we've been so busy with our move, there's been no time for much else. i hope everyone is doing well and has exciting plans for the holiday!
i would like to know if anyone has an opinion on jenn-air ranges. i am looking at a particular model and will just add this link here instead of trying to explain which model it is and all the features:
i hope that worked! :?
i have been doing some research and it seems as though convection is the way to go. do you agree? what are the pros and cons? i have always used your standard oven with nothing fancy, so i'm not sure what to expect with anything else. i also love the grill feature and would definitely utilize it. as far as i know, jenn-air is the only line that carries the grill with convection oven combo in my price range ($2500 or less), so don't go and suggest how nice the viking ranges are or the thermador, etc....LOL! i would love to have a nice shiny viking range in my kitchen and tried to convince my husband that i should since i'm swedish and all, but he did not go for it. :roll:
my husband wondered if the range could be fueled with a standard grill propane tank (this did not sound one bit safe to me. a propane tank stored in one of my kitchen cabinets? yikes!) but, what do i know.
any comments would be greatly appreciated!!!

First, I can only give you an opinion based on MY style of cooking. For me (and...if I am looking at the right model) 2 burners wouldn't cut it and the grill part is too small. In fact we looked at a few downdraft ranges and determined that the downdraft took up too much precious room (remember; there are only 2 sizes of kitchen for a cook; a little too small and WAY too small) so we went to the old exhaust out of the roof type.
I do not own a convection oven but think they are a great idea!

thanks for the opinion bubbagourmet. i thought the same thing about only having 2 burners, but i am under the impression that the grill accepts an optional 2 burner module. i would have to look into this to be sure. there are times when i use only one burner, but then there are times when i use all four! the grill feature is small, but i am looking just for room to grill a couple of chicken breasts or burgers. we would definitely still need our outdoor grill for get-togethers. thanks again!

My parents bought one...

......because I cozed them into it.......I wanted to see if I would like it other than spending a lung on a Wolf Range with grill, griddle, burners, and double infra red oven :oops:

While it is no Wolf.......

It's quite nice....

The grill well to me it doesn' t get hot enough.....so searing is....well...not exactly searing....

They bought it with 2 grills and 4 Halogen rounds...they just click off...really easy....you plan your meal and set up the stove...

The Oven with convection is quite nice....
