Our kitchen is definitely my least favorite part of the house. Isn't that so sad? It's never been updated and all the appliances and cabinets are pretty much horrible. Before we moved in, I completely scrubbed down the entire kitchen, which made it a little bit better, but not great. Almost every cabinet squeaks when you open them and most of the drawers come off the hinges constantly. All the appliances work fine, they are just gross and old.
However, our stove is the devil. It's possessed. It is definitely the original stove (circa 1984) and it has a lovely tilt to it, that we can't seem to fix. It makes cooking extremely interesting, since all the food goes to one side of the pan. It's also a coil cooktop, which I really think should be discontinued. Do they still make stoves like these? I honestly just want to throw it off our back deck.
So while most of the kitchen upgrade is going to have to wait until this winter after we get our first time homebuyers credit, we decided we just can't wait for a new stove. With being so broke right now, a brand new stove isn't in the cards for us right now, BUT we found a 2 year old stainless steel Kenmore stove on Craigs List last week for the budget friendly price of $200!! Yes, it will soon find it's new home in our kitchen tonight! We went to look at it and it seriously is like brand new. I love it...nice flat cooktop and lovely stainless warming drawer underneath.
Welcome Home beautiful stove!
(ps - my favorite part about getting this is that it now forces us to buy all stainless steel appliances when we re-do the kitchen...J likes black appliances better, but oh well!!)
