Self-clean Sadness - Nat King Cole

8 posts in this topic

It's that time of year alright. Loads of oven repairs caused by self clean cycle. Just the other day went to repair a stove but the board was no longer made nor remanufactured. Customer truly loved the stove and said she had used self clean even though she had read expert opinion about the potential problems. Her sadness moved me and I felt helpless. So to potentially help others (and as you may have guessed) I wrote a song about it to try and bring home the point

THERE WAS A STOVE ie Nat King Cole as an appliantologist

She owned a stove,

Very rare and expensive stove,

On it she cooked up many things,

Souffles and greens, until she used self-clean.

Now she cries, always sad of eye,

But now wise, very wise was she.

And then one day,

One sad day she passed my way,

And while we spoke of many things

It was Self-clean, of which she cautioned me,

"The greatest thing you could ever learn,

If you use self-clean, your precious stove will burn.

and burn and burn....

If you use self-clean, your precious stove will burn,

And burn and burn...

The wires will burn...the lock will burn.....

The board will burn....and burn and burn...."

(repeat ad lib and fade)

Sometimes if you ignore the experts and do what you want, you may succeed as shown in the following video . But you may not be so lucky if you use self clean against advice, especially during holiday cooking season.
