Thank you to everyone for your comments about the stove/oven. It confirmed my thoughts all along until that HD woman made me second guess everything.
Unfortunately MD, we will not be going with the separate range and ovens. This would have had to have been thought about LONG before we were at this stage of the kitchen remodel b/c the countertops are already in. Maybe in house #2 though!
It looks like we will be holding off on the oven purchase until around March or April, as we will need to build up our savings account a little more after Monday evening's big purchase! (Which, by the way, I am LOVING!)I guess I have lived with the crappy glass top stove for this long, i can suck it up for a few more months.
