I love my Frigidaire Gallery electric Stove/convection oven. It has made me a real fan of electric over gas. Most desirable is the superior control and evenness on the stove top. Especially for medium to low heat slow cooking and stewing. I could completely eliminate my crock pot if one or more of the heating elements had a delay/start/stop feature identical to the oven feature. I can't seem to find that feature anywhere from any brand. Also i used to have an electric oven that allowed for 2 temperatures and times. THAT was cool also. So say i wanted it to cook for 30 minutes @ 500 then turn down to 350 for 3 hours. Also a cool feature hard to find.
It looks like some Siemans hobs have that feature.
