Congrats on the DIY, Cats. You are not crazy. HH and I just went back to Home Depot to gaze longingly at this Jenn-Air (i.e., Maytag) stove that had 5 gas burners and two electric convection ovens. To use this beast we would have to cut too many holes in the wall to bring up the powerline for the ovens, so for now we have reluctantly decided to forget it.

Thanks for the reply, Mudbug. Do you remember what name the beast went by, and what it cost? And do you know if convection is the only type of oven available with the gas stovetop?

Aren't you sorry you started this? :D

i want an antique chamber's stove. my parents had one when i was growing up. it is a gas stove, with the coolest griddle/broiler tray on left side of the top, next to the burners. on the top surface is a griddle. but if you crank a handle on the front, the griddle raises up to reveal a broiler compartment. my mom made the best broiled foods in it, and the best pancakes and eggs on the top.

This is the NEFF hob I've got with the integral wok burner.

Growing up, my parents house had gas. When I moved into my own place I had gas. This was all before I found my love of cooking. As soon as I started to really cook I moved into a place that had electric. So I really learned on electric. I want gas, but we can't have it in my neighborhood so I have to stick with what I have. Since it is what I learned on I am very used to it and have no problems using it.

Cats,

They are called "dual fuel" ranges. You will find many on the net.

Thanks very much, Mikegeorge! See, I knew it would be called by some name I'd never think of on my own.

Off I go.

That is really nice Ishbel! Many of those cookers with the wok burner are so huge!

Here in The Netherlands gas top and electric oven are pretty standard for a stove. We have a built in (fitted) kitchen, so we could choose whatever we wanted. All the units come separately.

My American family was amazed that my dishwasher was "in one of the cupboards". It really just has the same kind of front as the cupboard doors.

Yes, I spent ages looking at cookers to replace the Aga when we refitted a while back.... the wok burner is used a LOT! I chose a gas oven, too - although the saleman tried to persuade me to go with gas burners/electric ovens - but I don't like cooking on electric - so I insisted on the gas oven, too!

My kitchen is fitted - and my dishwasher, fridge and washing machine are hidden by having the same doors fixed to them as the rest of the cupboards -'built-in' appliances as we call them. It just makes the kitchen looks so much 'cleaner' not to see all the white goods on display.

My sister thought it was very odd that I didn't have a washing machine - and when I said it was built in behind one of the unit doors, she asked how I managed to put clothes into the machine... I had forgotten that in Australia (where she lives) the vast majority of washing machines are top-loading, whilst here they are front loading... 8)

Our washing machine is in the attic. Dutch kitchens can be very small.

I am saving my pennies for one of those double refrigerators. The one we have now is 60 centimeters wide. Too small for 5 people.

Pam

ps our washing machines are also front loading.
