And, finally, this oven have made its official cooking duties, four months after it has been bought in August. Yes, it has been only last December, where holidays and events were aplenty had this oven began its service. Two reasons were behind the postponement: 1) I wanted the oven be placed not inside our house, but on the “dirty kitchen”, instead. 2) Hubby said, it is better off on our counter top “inside” the house.
Didn’t I often wrote that me and the hubs have opposing views on almost all things? We argued on a lot of things. Er, please note that the arguments does not lead to physicality nor verbal abuses. In fact, argument have made us understand MORE of each other. I know, that sounds eccentric.
But, in the end, guess which proposal had pushed through…
The oven here is shown in a corner in our unruly “dirty kitchen”… sitting on a makeshift table that hubby repaired. It may be a compact unit but helps me with my baking try-outs. Lasagna’s in the oven
Hate to say goodbye to my good old but very durable two-burner gas stove. Yes, the classic Standard gas stove. It’s a wedding gift. Imagine using the small household appliance since 1995. Whew! That’s a lot of years cooking our foods:
Sans rust build-up on its body, the unit still runs good. Except, the flame on the other burner wouldn’t be maximize. The hubby told me a couple of times already, sooner, it will wear off due to age. The rust will get into the small pipes which carried gas off to the burner. He further added, I should be buying a new one and it would not even hurt my budget. A new double burner gas stove costs as low as P900 (around $21) depending on the brand.
I had better (worse, as in hubby’s side^_^) idea for its replacement…
Been eyeing a freestanding gas range complete with range hood. But, I can’t. First, budget won’t allow me to have it. Then, the limited space in our kitchen allowed no more big and bulky appliances. What an excuse:)
Contentment is the key to happiness. Isn’t it? Citing the budget and the space, I came upon this “dwarf” La Germania Compact range.
Price at P11,048 (around $263), it’s the closest I can get to owning one which has the capability of a full oven. It has two automatic ignition burner on top which is the perfect replacement for the old gas stove. Then, it has a compact oven (run on gas, too), same as the size of the brand’s conventional free standing model.
And, since it is too compact, it can be place on top of the counter or a durable small table, hence, the moniker, TABLE TOP OVEN.
Now, I have “few” of my wishes came true for this year. I shall not bother coming to my brother’s house to use my mom’s 70′s gas range^_^ for my bake needs. Yey!
Ooopppsss! The unit is still in storage, waiting for the hubby to fix the table where it would sit ^_^.
