The stove was given it's death notice at 12:17pm DST. We're off this afternoon to look at new ones. We now have one Harvest Gold Appliance left that we'll not talk about.

So sorry it bit the dust. I hope you don't get a glass top electric oven. I HATE ours!

Well, we had good reports from family members who have them (smooth cook tops) and are happy, so we will see how it goes. We did most of our research in October when we almost lost the old guy.

Out with the (g)old...

And in with the new...

And it was on sale at 20% off!

 

ETA: the close range and short focal length (wide angle) causes distortion in the pictures.  :huh:

Wow, POeter -- it looks JUST like mine......is it a Whirlpool? I've always been happy with it.....I clean the glass top with baking soda mixed into a paste with water. I LOVE the convection for poultry...'tis the best!

It is branded Kenmore, but is likely made for them by Whirlpool. We have several Kenmore appliances and Whirlpool made the ones where we know the actual maker.

 

No "convection" as promoted when forced by a fan, but convective heat transfer takes place in every oven on the planet. Convection.

I think that is the one my folks just got. It works very well. I cooked lasagna in it on Sunday. The top cleans better than my " glass" top does. Better make a pizza and test it.

We baked two personal pizzas on Udi's crusts this evening. I think the old oven was running at less than quite the specified temperature, assuming the new one is accurate. We may need to adjust temperatures or timings on some recipes.  :)

Very nice! Looks exactly like my parents' one too, Karreignne. My biggest problem was I was so used to a gas stove that when I moved into the house with an electric one there was a learning curve that sometimes boiled over onto the cooktop. lol

Have phun cooking and baking up lots of goodies :)

Speaking of pizza, I just ate an entire Wegmans ( made by conte ) gluten-free pepperoni one.

How are the Udi crusts? They have those at Weggies too.

At all cost, do NOTburn your balls. :o:lol:

 

With the frequency that we have replaced appliances, it's beyond me that yours has lasted  so long. The color is now "retro". :rolleyes:

The Udi's crusts are good. They're a thin crust. We found that the crusts came out under cooked when following the package guidelines so we cook them at 450.

I'm going there tomorrow and will pick one up. I prefer my own pizza toppings. I use crushed tomatoes topped with spices instead of sauce like my grandma used to.

The package says 5-7 minutes at 375--not enough.

Gas is really different. I lived in a house with a gas stove for about a year, before I met Jacquie. It would be a major project to fit gas into our kitchen, so we are staying with electric heat.

Yeah, it's a huge production to bring in gas. Not worth all that.

I dunno... I like cooking with gas sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better I might consider it if I though I was staying in this location long term.

Poeter & Jacquie, congrats on having only one harvest gold appliance left(brings back memories).I wish we had a gas stove! We're not hooked up for gas either. Our oven runs 50 degrees lower than it should. It once took 8 hours for me to make pot roast (and we had company). After that Superman tested the temp so now I just up the temp 50 degrees. Patti, I SOOOO miss Wegman's!!!!!

We opted for electric.  Just because all the knobs for gas appliances are in the front.  We had young kids and it just seemed too dangerous to have the knobs in reach.  Now I'm just used to using an electric stove.

Us too-- we are about the same here with humidity to match. Getting a few things done, and running laundry.

Hope it's nice weather in Boston next week :)

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
