question about your cookstoves

I recall from previous threads on this topic that some of you have either
changed to, or started out with, residential electric stoves. We have a big
restaurant-sized 6-burner gas stove with two ovens that is a pain in the
neck in some respects and we're considering replacing it with one or two
residential electric stoves. (There are also commercial electric stoves,
but there is no Consumer Reports kind of source for evaluating their
quality and usability so we're not looking there at the moment.)

Our major concern with residential stoves is their cooking capacity. We
often have 40-50 diners at our cooked meals, mostly adults. Our annoying
gas stove and its two big ovens can handle this load, and I'm wondering how
much of a crowd you can cook for on a smaller stove, or two of them.

If you use only a residential stove (or two) in your CH kitchen, could you
please say:
 (1) Do you have one or two such stoves?
 (2) Are they standard electric or induction? What brand and model(s)?
 (3) How many adults typically come to your cooked meals?
 (4) On the whole, are these stoves working well for your common meals or
are they problematic in some ways?
 (5) Anything else I should know?

OR -- do you have an electric/induction commercial-size stove? If so, what
has been your experience with it? Can you say what brand and model?

I am *very* interested to see your responses - thanks in advance!
