Adios 1967 Tappan Gallery Range
Yesterday I went to Angert’s and bought a new refrigerator, and a stove too. Our fridge needs replacing, as it is slowly loosing cooling power. The new stove was a little harder to talk Mike in to.
Yes, our current stove works, but it has issues. First, it is MUSTARD YELLOW. Second, it is has coil burners, which I dislike. And, most damning of all, the oven does not keep a constant temperature. Sometimes it cooks hotter, sometimes cooler. While our dinners usually come out edible, it is nearly impossible to bake desserts in. I suppose it isn’t doing too poorly for a circa 1967 range.
I think Mike was most convinced by the argument that new appliances will make it easier to sell the house. Once we finish the rest of the kitchen renovations (countertops, wainscoting, paint), we can list our house as having an “updated kitchen.”
The replacement appliances are pretty basic. I sprung for spill-proof shelves in the fridge and a smooth cook top and self-cleaning oven in the stove. Angert’s has a great delivery price: $25 for the entire order, and the price includes taking the old appliances away! Good-bye warm refrigerator! Good-bye old stove!
