We bought our house in the fall of 2003, a few months after we got married. I still remember the sheer excitement when I realized that yet another dream had come true, my husband and I had purchased our first home.
Our home was only a few years old when we bought it so everything was in great condition. The furnace, air conditioner, washer and dryer and kitchen appliances were all in good condition, so I was pretty confident that we wouldn’t have to pay for any appliance repair for quite some time.
In 2006 our washing machine broke, but honestly, despite the financial side of things, I wasn’t disappointed as it was really smelly and it wasn’t cleaning our clothes effectively.
Now, almost 10 years after buying our home, things are starting to break and are in need of repair. It seems like everything is starting to “go” at once which is a rather overwhelming thing to think about.
I just discovered this week, our low end stove that has served us so well and really owes us nothing, now has a broken button. Luckily it is just the “cap” on the button, so it still works, but I figure it is only a matter of time before more parts start to go. My hubby was funny because, as soon as I showed him what had happened, he said, “Great, you are going to use this button as an excuse to need a new stove, aren’t you?
Well, no, not exactly, but it definitely is time to start thinking about what I would buy if we did need one. The oven is something I definitely couldn’t live without. In fact, when I asked people on Facebook what their #1 kitchen appliance that they couldn’t live without was, I had to agree with my friend Shari from The Knit Wit by Shair, when she said it was her oven!
So the question is:
Do I go with gas or electric?
Glass top or Traditional Burners?
What are YOUR THOUGHTS?
