We’re taking our neighbors place and the oven is very old lol.
We’re looking to replace the oven for a newer one (what, it feels good when you buy a big thing on your own without any help lol aside from hashem!) and I’d like something that I would love to look at and use! I’m very intimidated by old ovens and I literally won’t use it.
When we lived in willi I hardly cooked because the oven was TIIIIIIIINY.

We’re looking for the type of stove that has the fire, not the electric ones and maybe a self cleaning oven too.
We can spend anything less than 600$

Any recommendations welcome!

I recommend you call Town Appliance in Lakewood. I trust their recommendations. They deliver to Brooklyn too. I think you can get a great gas stove/self clean oven for 500-600$.

We recently bought a ge gas stove for about that much. 5 burners, sabbath mode, etc. Also, the light doesn't turn on automatically when you open the door. Not self cleaning and no convection - that was the tradeoff for the price. Shop around online, then call an independent store. All the local appliance stores sell at way below list price.

We looked at Frigidaire, LG, and Samsung, but they have reputations for problems.

Looking into this now & seems like we’re lokking at this GE you have.
How’s it working out? Is the the one with steam clean option? Worth something or better spend $200 more for self clean option?

Many hold that self clean can be used to kasher the oven especially for pesach. I don't know if steam clean works the same way. That may be worth taking into consideration.

Also, many ovens have a cutoff that doesn't allow them to be left in for yom tov. If you talk with town appliance they know which ones have shabbos mode and can override the cutoff. It could be local appliance stores also know but I've found town to be very well versed in all shabbos and yom tov concerns.

AIUI most ovens with gas burners are still electric.
The steam clean is supposed to be useful (I don't find it cleans that well, maybe I should try again) and is NOT good enough for kashering. Only self-clean is. I believe that is very widespread psak.

It works well, no complaints. Steam clean is good for cleaning spills, and kashering for Pessach will be the old fashioned way of leaving it on high (550). It wasn't worth it to me to pay extra for self clean which I'd use once a year. Also, every Pessach lots of people post that their controls melted or glass shattered from using self clean.

The fifth burner sounds nice, but is pretty useless because its a narrow oval crammed in the middle. But really everything works well. I hear people like convection, but I decided not to pay up for that.

Fyi, ask your rav. Not everyone holds that you can kasher an oven for pesach by leaving it on high/550

We were told to buy GE for ovens. They are built well and have the best features.
