Brand new, second-hand StoveTop!
Thursday, February 25, 2010
So I went shopping and came home with a new Range, Flat top cooking area.
Couldn't get to sleep - just had this annoying feeling it was wrong. I told DH and took the stove back yesterday morning.
For 20 years I have hated my StoveTop, a GE with coil burners that replaced a faulty GE with coil burners - don't ask. The salesman convinced my DH that my best bet was to replace identical items instead of the StoveTop I had wanted. He also talked DH out of me getting a self-cleaning wall oven, insisting I didn't need it. So we replaced what we had 20 years ago. My only bonus back then was a matching range hood instead of the green one for a now new beige StoveTop and Wall Oven.
Well, it sounds stupid, I just wasn't ready to let go of my existing StoveTop with the burner that had become "floppy" about 3 years ago.
*yes Tony, I am sure you know what the solution was*
So my B-I-L came to measure for my new range only to learn I had returned it. End of story? It took him maybe 10 minutes to fix my existing StoveTop! This is the StoveTop I have learned how to cook on for the past 20 years!! I am ecstatic!! I just wasn't ready for a change and must have really wanted to have this one fixed if at all possible! I mean, I know I am cheap - incredibly cheap - but I must be sentimental too, lol.
I am in hog-heaven with my now fixed 20 year old StoveTop!!
Life is great!
**P.S. The clip had come undone and had flipped over and Bless his heart, Van figured it out and re-clipped the burner! ( I bet you knew this paragraphs back Tony, lol. )
