For me LPG is the only way to go and I do like the added usefulness of an oven. In Oz the installation has to be passed by a licenced gasfitter or insurer will get upset.
Non marine stoves can be adapted but corrosion is a problem. We have a Force 10, expensive and not as good as I would have thought but still probably as good as it gets. Don't know if Plastimo sell in the US but I had one on previous boat and given the price I thought it better value than the F10.
Given the choice I'd go three burner, with grill (broiler) and oven. Grill in oven better than external cos you retain full oven size.
Oh yes, we don't have electrical cutoff. Tank has a pressure gauge on it that is visible from the cockpit. If pressure falls then you know you either have a leak or tank is nearly empty. Good feature I reckon.
