New Stoves!


My new stoves came today! I'd been needing them for a couple of months--my left oven was beyond repair and the right one was getting iffy. On the other hand, I had eight functioning burners--but that won't roast the Thanksgiving turkey.

 I'm very grateful to have full function once again, and just in time for the hungry hordes.

Gosh Anna they look great! I hope that you find getting used to them a cinch.

Anna said...

Thanks, Rose! So far they are a delight.

Melissa said...

How wonderful! Love the bowls all lined up.

Wow! Stoves? As in plural? What a huge blessing. I've heard of having multiple washers and dryers, but not stoves. If we ever remodel I'd like to have double wall ovens, I seem to want to bake more things than one oven can hold. Enjoy your new appliances!

Lisa said...

Oh, the things one could cook with two ovens!

They look excellent! No digital display and no shiny stainless steel, which seems to be a tall order these days. I've never contemplated having TWO stoves, but I can imagine they're very useful.

Ohh love this!! We have been planning a kitchen redo, and you have given me something new to think about :)

The thought of having two ovens has never even crossed my mind, but now that you've said it, I just keep thinking - what a great idea if you feed a crowd regularly! Enjoy :)

Oh, so happy for you! You definitely know how to put them to work. I am also in the market for a simple, lovely, white, pull-out gas stove. Alas, my little 1920s kitchen will only accommodate a single. May I inquire about the make/model specifics?

Yes, two ovens are a delight aren't they. I'd love it but my kitchen is too small to accommodate them. However double ovens are quite common in Ireland even though our houses are generally much smaller than American ones. Anna, I also love the bowls above the stove. Now that's something I've often contemplated but I worry about them getting all splashed and steamy from the cooking and needing to be washed constantly. How do you manage? Is it an issue? Thanks if you have time to answer. Angela.

If you don't mind my asking, why did you go with two stoves instead of one large "deluxe" model?

Anna said...

Anissa, two no-frills stoves are much cheaper than one large one. Less prone to breaking down (and even if one does, the other will still work). Also, two separate ovens and eight burners is better than you can do with a big fancy stove!

Angela, the bowls are in constant rotation--I use them for cooking, serving, and storing food. No chance for them to ever get greasy or dusty.

Kara, these are Amana's bottom-of-the-line. I wanted no digital, no computer, etc. They had to be specially ordered! Apparently everyone but me wants a digital readout. No thanks!

Nice!! Time to cook up a feast! Thankfully, my family goes to my parents' house for dinner. My 1950's kitchen in my little cottage only has a 22" apartment range.

Rachel Marie said...

This is such a GREAT idea. I don't know why I never thought of that.

Thanks so much Anna for explaining about the bowls! So the trick is to use'everyday' dishes. Certainly it works with my utensil and saucepan rack. Everything on there gets used pretty much every day and thus washed every day. I shall definitely give it a go. I'll save it for the new year as something to look forward to after Christmas! All the best to you and yours. Angela

Your comment about the digital stuff made me laugh. That's why I bought a Speed Queen washing machine and why I continue to use the Loudest Dishwasher in the Universe (it's like an airplane taking off)--but it's all manual dials. No digital business there. Oh! And why I insisted on a fridge with no icemaker when my parents were buying one for us a couple of years ago. I'm glad some of us 'holdouts' exist--maybe companies will continue to provide the old school models of appliances. I sure know I love mine!
