Or Range in U.S. terminology. We finally replaced the last appliance in our house. The original was a Magic Chef range of undetermined age. I figure it was the from the early 1960s. No electronics what so ever. It had pilot light ignition, no oven light, and no window for the oven.
So two years ago, we decided to buy a new stove. I bought a new truck instead and we agreed to go shopping for the new stove. We procrastinated. Two years later we did. Ordered it the week of Thanksgiving (November 21). Had to be ordered since we did not want stainless steel. Lowe’s promised it would be here in about a week. So on a Sunday before it was to be delivered, I take the old trusty range out and add the new outlet for the electronics. Of course they call us on Monday (December 5) and tell us it is back ordered….
After much discussion, Lowe’s sends a loaner. A Whirlpool not much better than the Magic Chef but at least it is electronic ignition.
A few weeks later (December 27) after some more delays we get our Frigidaire Gallery Range.
And I made Pizza!
