home appliance shopping

It's been forever since I've been in the "durables" section of a department store, but checking in a couple of places over the weekend, it seems like gas oven ranges go for anywhere from $300 to $800, with a couple of "luxury" outliers around $1300 (which usually have things like convection ovens and universal keypad control). So this is pretty affordable, and I'm going to go for getting a replacement rather than putting more repair effort/time/money into the broken kitchen clunker. Doing a little feature-discussing with Kate and a little Consumer Reports research (thanks to Becca), I'm narrowing things down to a mid-high-end GE Profile brand.

Anyone have any input?
