so I've been thinking about what to do about my stove...latest thought...remove the broken stove and put in a counter with shelves underneith to house all of my non-stove cooking items. I found a really neat convection oven for $99 that will fit a 9x13 pan. so that's what got me thinking...do you really need a stove? how much does a stove cost me to run verses a electric skillet or say a small convection oven. Since I got the electric skillet I haven't missed my stove much. it makes me sad to see the stove just sitting there...Feel like it' such waste of space now...my kitchens not all that big and outlets are sparce so the space would be nice...just thinking out loud....
