For me, an electric oven is okay for baking cakes and cookies, but I really don't like the stove part. I feel like stuff doesn't cook the way it should, or that it takes longer. I also don't like judging medium-high, etc., by a simple turn of the knob. I like to see the flame. I believe I have a gas line there, so if this thing ever goes kaput I will most likely buy a gas range. I would miss the electric oven though.
