When we moved to this house 2 1/2 years ago, we needed to buy a stove, because there was not one here. I was really wanting a flat top stove because it was kind of a pain keeping the burner pans clean on the stove I had at my former home. I thought a flat top stove would be wonderful. So we bought one. Now, I am thankful for my stove but let me tell you I don't think they are all they're crakced up to be. I think keeping the top clean is impossible....it was easier to buy new burner pans on my old stove if they got to yucky to clean.
Another thing about my stove that I'm not pleased about is..... the vent for the oven releases steam up near the top of the stove. Well all the steam from the oven has caused the paint to peel off the stove : (....a stove that is only 2 1/2 years old! I've never had a stove do that before. Over all I'm just disappointed with this stove....it just isn't a solid stove. Yes, it serves it's purpose but I honestly wonder how long it will.
What I would love in my dream kitchen is a sturdy & strong stove...something that's going to withstand some serious cooking. In my opinion something you can't get on the market today of course I'm sure there is something out there but way out of my price range. Since I love the old fashioned/ vintage/ country type look of a kitchen, I think a stove similar to this would be perfect for a country kitchen. Now I did look on one site and they were very expensive(completely restored) but of course in my dream kitchen money wouldn't matter : )
What do you think? What would you like to have most in your dream kitchen. If you do have your dream kitchen what is it that you like the most about it?
