The new thing I am obsessing about lately is what range to get.
First off, I have kind of wanted a slide in, white range with a ceramic top because I have this idea that it's easy to clean. Kind of like this: (Bear with me, I am trying this amazon link thing for the first time.)
Anyway, now I am starting to freak out for a few reasons:
- Does a slide in need to have some kind of notch taken out on the countertop? Do I need to have the range before I get the countertop? Cause I was planning on just using my old gas one for a while and then replacing it later.
- I am moving from gas to electric. I have never cooked on an electric stove, but I also detest cleaning my gas stove. I have never had a gas stove that I felt came completely, spotlessly clean. That may be commentary on my skill as a housekeeper (yeah, I'm no good in that department), but I also don't want to spend a thousand bucks on something that I ultimately don't like
For the record, my brother and sister in law have a smooth electric stove, and were nice enough to let me come over and cook on it once, to see if I liked it. I made coquille st jacques, and it was fine. Fab, even. If people care, I can post the recipe later. And really, how much fancy gas-range cooking do I need?
In any case, we are having a gas and an electric line run to that spot, so I can dither and change my mind later. Aieee!
