We are facing the same problem and our plan is to totally remove the cooktop/oven crumb catcher and put in a solid countertop. We will then use either induction burners and/or electric skillets. We only used the cooktop a couple of times all winter in FL. and have only used the oven 3-4 times since '04. I'm going to install pullout drawers behind a door where the oven is now and make a counter extension that can be added about where the cooktop is now. The extension will store on the door when not is use. An early estimate for the counter-top is $350 or so.
