Show and Tell

I guess Kym and I must be related. We have the same kind of stove in our homes. She posted a picture of hers on her blog. Here's a picture of mine. For some reason the picture came out a lot smaller than I wanted it too, but you get the idea.

One difference is her oven windows are round, ours are square. You can't really see it but there's a griddle in between the top burners just like hers has but we don't have a cover on ours. Doesn't really matter as we've never really used the griddle but, during the winter, one or both of our cats like to curl up on it since it's nice and warm there. I know, some might think that's gross, but we don't care unless we're trying to cook something.

Our stove actually used to be out in the laundry room behind the garage. There used to be a real old fashioned wood cook stove where this Wedgewood now sits. That stove was given to one of Connie's brothers- in- law.

Directly across from the stove, to the left in the picture, is where this computer sits and I spend much of my time. You can't see that in this picture. You probably wouldn't want to as it's a mess, as is this entire house.

Be it ever so jumble, there is no place like home. At least you run a real neat blog.

Okay, all of a sudden I have “Stove Envy”.

Well, don't get too envious. I've often wondered just how energy efficient these things are? This stove must be burning at least 7 pilot lights. Wonder how much that costs a month?

It would be interesting to compare these Wedgewoods with some of the newer supposedly "energy efficient" stoves.

I have a smaller Wedgewood of the same era and love it too. Got it from Gas Stoves With Style in Eureka about 6 years ago. They rehabbed it with a bit of fresh porcelain, new insulation and replaced a burner. We turned off the burner pilots and light them by hand.

Very even temp in the oven and heats up fast.
