My stove is a 'Piece'

Anyone know of a range where you can fit multiple pans on? It's a PITA trying to cook sometimes. Once in a while I have to go outside to use the burner on my grill.

See the pic? Only a 1qt sauce pan would fit on that back burner.

Same way my stove is. You have to strategically map out which pan you are using at what time and on which burner so that they all fit! Good luck on your quest.

Oh, and pass the fried Zucchini! That's the way we like it in Pittsburgh- with a little marinara for old school tastiness.

Every range that is 30"wide and made to slide into a space between cabinets is going to have the same problem. There is only so much space available with a range that is rougnly 30" wide and 25" deep.

As Jill mentioned, you have to plan pans when you are using several burners at once.

Mine is the same. I have a dinky apartment stove with only one big burner and 3 dinky ones. Maneuver them or only use one or two at a time.

You could get one of those camping stoves and put it on your counter...we've been thinking about getting one for whenever we lose power. You can also get electric burners if you don't care about gas.

Hey, Jill! Does your zucchini in Pittsburgh look like eggplant?

we've all been there and most still are there. I however traded the SUV for a 36" 6 burner dual fuel range. My pans fit, and it gets better gas mileage too! However, most folks need to loose cabinet space to put one of them in. But it is worth it.

Just a thought: Electric frypans, grills, portable induction burners (available from Viking or much cheaper from a restaurant store), etc are the cheapest kitchen additions and often make certain cooking tasks easier.

the portable burner idea is not a bad one... especially if you have the counter space.

I spent several months sharing a kitchen with 30+ other people (fortunately in a beautiful villa in Switzerland) Instead of a built in stove we had several sets of moveable hot plates and plenty of black granite countertop. It worked out surprisingly well allowing for lots of flexibility in the use of space.

Its going to be a tough decision when I redo my kitchen stove space vs counter space
