#239412 Am I nuts to replace a smooth-top fancy pants range with an old school coil one?

Posted by ThePadre on 18 September 2012 - 07:31 PM

I'd love a natural gas stove, but there are no lines in my area. So then we're talking propane, and my stove is on an interior wall. In that case, I'm now running a line in the house, etc. I think giving the electric coil stove a chance is a good idea in this case.

In the end, my personal experiene (which is sample size 1) suggests that these smooth top ranges are a triumph of aesthetics over simple utility. No one wants an ugly stove, but, really, its first job is to cook food. If it does that poorly, well, who cares about the aesthetic.
