The built in oven I had once did have a small broiler part under it...but it didn't come with built in cooky sheets! lol. The ovens we have today have broilers in the bottom...but I just want to know how you are suppose to get down there to get the pans in and out! Maybe I should have set the stoves up on blocks? No...then I couldn't have reached the burners....lol.

Is your stove Gas or electric?

I have seen broilers under the oven where the storage drawer is on mine. But only on gas stoves. Other than that mine is a drawer.

Hi Earlzach, it's an electric oven.

LOL, so far I seem to have everyone ...If it helps the brand of the oven is called "Meisterkoch" (and I think I over-shot my estimate of the height of this mysterious bottom part, it's probably no more than 6-7 inches high).

If its 20 years old then it likely was a broiler at one time. My aunt had a old stove at one time that they brough over from the UK and it had a small broiler drawer (that my aunt used to proof bread) I hated the thing. I never understood it. Needless to say no one in the family wanted it when she died.

While there is obviously nothing funny about your aunt's passing, the last line made me crack a smile. Luckily the stove is not ours (we rent), because I would never want to have to pass it along to anyone else.

I tend to agree, that at one point it was a broiler...who knows what happened. The crazy thing is, why would you need a broiler when the top half of the oven is essentially a broiler unto itself (the heating element is on the roof of the oven!). Poorly designed oven I tell you, and quite the challenge to bake with!

did you ever think that maybe the top part of the oven is also broken. I know that when you had the main part of my aunts oven turned on the bottom was on as well and that heated the bottom of the part on top. No idea if that makes sence I am very tired. It sounds like your landloard needs to replace that oven.

Thanks for the thoughts ArticKatt...the idea that the top part might be busted hadn't occured to me, as there is no element in/on the "floor" of the top part, I just assumed that it only heats stuff from the top (absurd as that sounds) Yes, it is certainly a clunker of an oven...as to my landloard, sigh, well - maybe I'll bring it up one day If I'm feeling extra brave

We have been talking about counter top convection ovens. In another thread. there are some that are big enough to do Roasts and chickens. Have you thought of one of those and then not use the oven supplied by the landlord. I would hate to have a oven I could not bake in.
