Thanks - I have a seriously old guy next door who actually takes a step ladder to look over the fence. One morning I wandered out to the coffee pot (not wearing much) shortly after he moved to the neighborhood and there he was looking in my window. That glass is actually two small windows from a salvage yard, still in their frames and stuck together like that.

The three clocks are there for two reasons.

1. That space needed something
2. One is local time, one is the local time for my grad student son (who is studying half a world away) and the last one is for Paris - just because.

Hm. As far as the creepy neighbor with the ladder, I'd consider a restraining order...

If he stays in his yard, a restraining order won't help.
I recommend a scary picture on one of the window panes.

Scarier than me first thing in the morning? Not possible.

Perhaps you should take times of using each, yes? Perhaps if the kitchen is decorated of Christmas, the silver would be nice.

I would order differently colored knobs if these are available to match the seasons and the decorations.

But if I must choose, I like the blue knobs. I like colors!

It is not the dual fuel although I looked hard at that model. The model I got is a 4 burner propane version. So far I LOVE it and especially appreciate the xlo burners.


@cat, there is no other color option available for knobs. As far as decorating the kitchen for Christmas... covering the counter (and sometimes floor) in holiday cookie fixins, 10x sugar and rising Christmas breads is about the extent of it.

Silver Knobs. Nice looking new stove. And I like the bricks too.

I voted blue just because I'm fast and clumsy. A color difference gives me the edge to actually spotting the knob faster! Since you have both colors, I think you should swap them out as your mood dictates.

Reminds me of a Marvin Window ad they used to run. Woman has standard windows, walks into the kitchen to make coffee, and sees her neighbor doing something like almost-naked yoga. Next scene after the ad bit was her enjoying her new Marvin windows...that were all high-up on the wall. All she could see was his face, and gives a tip of the cup to him!
