Thumbs up American Crown 6-Burner Stove...Want One?

If you do, you will love what I found when surfing the net last week.

I was looking for information on my American Crown range and I found this site.

Radioblog: Sandy and Her Classic Stove


Apparently Sandy is Martha Stewart's head chef!


Then, I came across this site.

Retro,, American Crown,, Stove * Sixburner * Doubleoven - eBay (item 280218540729 end time Jan-10-09 21:05:20 PST)

I want to be the greatest enabler for you guys!

Is anybody tempted?

lol

I was looking at some larger ranges a few days ago. Dropping $5 G's on one right now is out of the question. I really like the ones at Williams Sonoma.


I need a new dirtbike first.

MS and RR on the sam page for me, I do not know which one I hate more. Alright maybe a hate is a bit to big of a word, but I for do not like them, or their stoves for that matter.

I'm putting in my 2 cents - I think Martha needs to go away, lol. But that sure is a pretty stove :o)

I liked Martha Stewart when she was still a wonder-*****. I don't like her too much anymore.

I don't like Martha or Rachel, and don't really spend much time considering the many many many many many many many many products they are peddling all the time.
The wife has a word for that, but it is not allowed on this website, LOL. Celebrity sponsorship has never impressed me, and I don't make buying decisions based on which celebrity got paid to say it was better than the others.

I learned a lot about cooking and food from Martha's pre-jail show.
I dont like the new show - never liked her personality.
I don't think Rachel Ray knows much about cooking and never
watch her show.

My favorite cooking show is America's Test Kitchen on PBS

I liked Martha back when she was just starting out. In fact, have all her old original books, several of which are now out of print. I like her much less now that she's become a conglomerate. The standards she used to have re: things sold under her name have deteriorated quite a bit.
