Re: stove types

My wife and I like a gas stove better. It seems to cook more evenly and better. However, we like having an electric oven.

Re: stove types

I want a double oven

DH wants a glasstop .... my mom had one and it was a PITA. With the new ones do you still need to avoid getting sugar on them?

Re: stove types

I think mine must have some kind of anti-scratch measure on it. I don't have concerns about sugar scratching it, but I don't wipe it while dry, typically. I spritz a cleaner on it.

Re: stove types

Love the glass tops....however, if I had it to do again, I would buy one which offers a burner which heats up very quickly but when you take the pan off it's cool? Sorry forget what they are called.

I've had gas and electric and simply love how quickly the glass tops cleans up....

Re: stove types

I looked at those when I got my last cooktop. I remember thinking "WOW - I want that" but then deciding not to get one, not for price reasons either. Maybe it didn't work with my space or something.

Re: stove types

Our problem has been that one of the gas hobs has kept cutting off. - Of course the one used most frequently. It had got worse and worse over the last few weeks to the point it would not usually burn unless you kept the knob held in.

Yesterday, we pulled the whole oven out and had a good look at it. Pulled bits off it until we could see what was where, and DH applied contact cleaner and reseated all the contacts that are the same as the one that didn't seem to be working. Now the burner is behaving nicely again. - Not sure for how long but we now know which part has problems and how to get at it if we need to do anything further to it. But, my Goodness it is badly made. Unfortunately, it still suits our purposes much better than anything else currently on the market that we are prepared to pay for, so sticking with it until it croaks at this stage.
