Default Hidden Bottom Element Stove Questions

I was wondering if any one out there has one of these electric.hidden
element stoves. I am wondering how (if at all) this effects cooking in
them. Looks like it would be easier to clean. Thinking of ditching my pre-
digital electric stove and moving into the present.

I've got a Kitchenaid with convection. Works great, and much easier/quicker
to clean.

Do you mean oven? If so, I have a Creda that has a hidden lower
element. It works fine. I leave a large pizza stone on the bottom.

The manufacturer says you can bake without racks, but I do have to be
careful about putting dishes directly on the bottom. The bottom of the
dish can get overcooked/browned (even without the pizza stone). I have
taken to putting a cooling rack on the bottom when I need to, to get a
little air space. It still leaves me with plenty of extra room for
large items or extra shelf space.

We have one of thesetoo; it works very well. The dealer said it's OK
to put stuff on the "floor" at low temps but did not advise using it
to put a stone there.

Well I got a kenmore convection with the hidden bottom element coming. I
bit the bullet ...seems I might need schoolin' to use the new stove. Way to
many buttons and knobs. Does it really phone you when the food is cooked?

I had a GE with the bottom element underneath the oven cavity. It was
great for covenience and cleaning, however, temperature maintenance was
very difficult and erratic. This may have not been the fault of the bottom
element, but I never had the problem checked out before I got rid of it.

Polder it.
