Not now but one day...

...I will buy this. Not the best, I know but an excellent quality range for the price. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag46632-20#Ask

Don't go holding your breath, but I will get it.

I fixed mh hot piont piece of garbage and in the process realized that a piece of garbage it is. The outer panel on the oven door falling off was an abomination! Their are holes from rust in the bottom panel of the oven itself. I was going to replace it until I looked up the price of this stamped peice of metal. I put a piece of foil over it instead. Every time I look at the thing I become more disgusted with with it.

It will do for now. It works.

I am so sorry, honey. Dealing with a falling-down stove is so hard. I'll pray you can save up the money quickly to get your new stove.

Hang in there, dear. ((((((((hugs)))))))))

I like it. Seems like a very capable appliance. We have an Amazon credit card and earn points ($) with each purchase, non-Amazon purchases count, too.

Plus I use Bing as my search engine and earn points toward Amazon gift cards. Wonder how long it would take us to fund a good portion of the stove.

Who knows? Perhaps you could have a yard sale and sock the proceeds away as a "stove" fund.

Woooooo, good ideas there! Thanks, Katie!

Ladies, It's not like I'm dirt poor. Part of the fun is in saving up for a big thing. Heck, I could put it on my credit card but I dislike debt for anything but an emergency.

I don't do yard sales. I prefer to give away stuff that I no longer need. I'll consider getting an Amazon credit card. I should also get Amazon Prime. I get spooky when a business tells me that I can get something for nothing. It's one of my strange quirks.

I didn't mean to offend you and imply anything about your financial state. In our house, unless we have the cash in hand, we don't need it. That's just how we roll. The only debt we have is our mortgage. That's all.

We don't do yard sales either, but I know tons of folks who do and swear by them. Instead of yard sales I take the nicer items to several upscale consignment stores in our area. The "less than perfect" goods go to our local hospital/church thrift stores. Our thoughts are, if we can't/don't use something, someone else can/will. No point in throwing out something that will benefit someone who is in need. I've been there and know how it feels.

We also have Amazon Prime, which is a blessing because all 16 of our grandchildren are scattered all over the place. Prime takes a huge load off getting goodies to them for birthdays and such.

You, unlike many people, are able to handle "delayed gratification" by waiting until you can get your nice new stove. Too many fall into the "gotta have it NOW" category, IMHO.

Let us know when you get it.

Awww...I wasn't offended. I just didn't want y'all feeling sorry for me for no reason. I've always taken pride in knowing that I can do for myself. It is a great blessing that at 65 I have no health problems nor aches and pains. I work. I have my own business (an empire of one). My land and house are paid for. I've got it made!

Getting social security has been a blessing made yet greater that I am able to collect of my deceased husband's which is way more than mine would have been. I always knew about it but still, every month it magical when I see this big batch of money show up in my account. It saved me when my little truck needed a new engine. I put most of it on my credit card because it was an emergency. After two months it was paid off!

Just something to think about - one thing I really like about my convection gas stove is that the electronic controls are in the front, so I don't have to reach over hot pots and pans to reach them.
