Force 10 vs Tasco

I'm replacing our defunct old propane stove. Have come down to either at Force 10 Euro Compact or a Tasco 750LP.

Any experience with either brands? Force 10 seems to be the market winner, but I're read mixed reviews. The Tasco looks good as well, but I can't find much written about them.

Anyone have real-world experiences or comparisons?

Re: Force 10 vs Tasco

We have a Tasco (2 burner) on Eclipse. Seems to be very well built and solid (heavy). I can't compare it to anything else, but it's served us well and I'd buy another.

I've got the force 10. But when buying I was really looking at the Tasco, the oven burner is much more powerful. The force ten oven burner is adequate, but just barely. I do not know if the extra oomph in the oven would make a difference.

Re: Force 10 vs Tasco

Well being a Canadian and Force 10 is made only a short distance from where we live...Well actually F10 is a good product that is considered by most to be top of the line. I've owned 3 over the years and liked them, the hide a way door is nice in that it gimbles even with the door open and takes up less space. Top burners are good and the oven is OK, I had to fool with mine to eliminate a hot spot but I was successful. No experience with a Tasco.
