Dual Fuel or All Gas Range?

I'm trying to decide between a Dual Fuel Range or an All Gas Range. I am attracted to the Dual Fuel because of the self-cleaning option for when I'm too old or lazy to scrunch down and scrub my oven. Then some appliance sales people have said that you're really not supposed to use that self-cleaning option because it could damage your oven. Today a sales person told me that I shouldn't worry about it because people have used the self-cleaning option without an issue. I actually have Thermador double ovens and have used the self-cleaning feature (maybe once a year?) and haven't had a problem in 18 years. I'd welcome any advice on what you may have decided and why. Is it worth another $2K to buy a dual fuel?
