Yesterday I got a call from the appliance store and the latest news is that the oven will be in on November 3. That’s the fourth date we’ve been given since early September so I’m not going to hold my breath. They’re going to get it in, make sure it’s all ok and then schedule the installation. It’s been a year since we paid for that oven! I will be so glad to have it and be glad to be done with appliance buying/waiting. The only thing that remains of the original appliances is the microwave, which works fine and when it goes out, I hope I have a new storage cabinet because . . well, you know how I feel about a microwave.
The stove upstairs and the stove downstairs are gas ovens. The wall oven, which is the one supposed to be coming next week, will be electric (as is the current wall oven). Both the upstairs and downstairs stoves have propane ovens. Electricity is pretty much free so except for bread and pizza, I bake most everything else in the electric oven simply to save on energy costs. The current wall oven is about 18 years old land when it’s on, the whole upstairs feels like an oven, which probably means I’d be better off energywise to use the gas oven.
Anyway . . I’ll be glad to have it. Hope it arrives in good shape. Hope the installers get it installed without incident and we never have to replace an appliance again. It’s possible but probably not likely.
