Goodbye, old stove.

If all goes as planned tomorrow, I will have my new stove placed in my apartment.

All residents who renewed their lease within the last six months were entitled to a “renewal gift,” and even though my tiny studio apartment doesn’t hold much, I was in need of a new stove.

This bad boy has lived its years, and on December 1st, I will only have lived here for three years. I can imagine what how shiny and new it was for previous residents.


The timer and beatiful hen decoration that a dear friend sent me for Christmas (when I first moved in) will stay with me.

I’m excited to see my new stove. My landlord has informed me that it will come with a window. πŸ™‚


I took a picture of this particular burner, because this is the one that has given me the most problems while trying to cook. It’s uneven. It doesn’t stay in place. It doesn’t hold temperature very well. We’ve had our moments.

The oven has also given me problems. I didn’t realize that it was extra hot inside when I first moved in, so I burnt everything I baked. That’s when I learned I had to turn down the temperature 90-100 degrees than.what the recipe called for.

I eventually ate food that wasn’t burnt all the time. It took me two weeks to figure that out though, as embarrassing as it is.

The stove was actually great at boiling water quickly. I was impressed.

I wish I could locate the year of this stove. If I had to guess, I would guess early ’90s. I could be wrong though

Well, that’s really all there is to say about my stove. Perhaps my new stove will push me out of my comfort zone and get me to try new recipes, instead of my “usual” meals.

Let this new journey with the stove begin! πŸ™‚
