And thanks for taking me there to consider that...


Bob, can you replace just the glass top??

Thanks for the thought Andy. It's a Whirlpool, and the cost to replace the surface, is in the zone of "might as well replace the whole thing".

And like I said, it's an eye sore to me, but likely not to anyone else.


If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.

I'd go with the best quality gas stove I could afford, with an electric convection oven.

I agree. When I redo my kitchen I'm going with gas. It's eaiser to control and I just think the food taste better! That's pretty much all the chefs and cooks use. I have a glass top and have used cast iron on it for years with no problems, but I do want a gas stove!!!!!
