Also, our new range was just installed and I am so so thrilled. There are seriously not enough exclamation points in the world to convey how happy I am to get a working oven (especially in time for the holidays, and especially because DM's parents will be visiting!) For a comparison, here is our old stove:
To be fair, this was not a bad stove. It was a Kenmore and came with the house (can't complain about free), but the oven stopped working about 6 months ago and refused to heat up. And while I can't prove anything, I highly suspect the front burners were crapping out on it as well because they took forever and a day to heat up. Also, plastic knobs. And years and years of caked on... I assume it's food... that was here before we moved in. Yeah. Kinda icky.
The new one is a really nice convection oven (which I've never had but I've always wanted to try), it's stainless steel and has (for unknown reasons) a button for pizza and chicken nuggets. Did you just read my mind, Frigidaire? Oh yes you did.
I have been laboring over what to bake first - if you know me, you know our oven has been broken for about 6 months now which was pretty much a death sentence for me because I'm a baker - cookies, cupcakes, cakes, brownies...mmm... I can actually feel my waist expanding just by thinking of all the stuff I can do now.
We are going to spend many happy hours together, new oven.
