change from gas wall oven to electric

My double gas wall unit oven is 40 years old and must be replace. I prefer electric because I want a combo microwave/oven. A friend told me it would cost me $15,000 (!!!!) to upgrade my kitchen to pull out the gas oven and put in up-to-code electric. How does this make sense?

I'll do it for $14K and I will throw in the oven for free :thumbup:

If your electrical service will handle the additional load, a 40 or 50 amp, 240 volt circuit probably won't cost more than $500. If you have to upgrade your electrical service to handle the additional load, it probably won't cost more than $2500.
