New Appliances

I thought I'd just brag a bit about our new appliances. The stove is a Bosch convection, self-cleaning oven and ceramic top. I was a bit leary of the ceramic top because I love my cast iron frying pan and dutch oven. I can still use the dutch oven in the oven but the frying pan has found a new home. Of course my old cookware didn't work either because the bottoms are not flat so I got a Cuisinart set.




















The dishwasher is a Bosch too, which we could never have afforded except that they had a second hand one there. They do the repairs in the shop on site so we thought we could take a chance. We have a week to change our minds on it. We have hard well water, so dishwashers tend to not last very long even with our water softener. We have to get an intake hose and some couplings before we can install it.

Enjoy the new appliances, post and pans. Our house had a ceramic top when we moved in and I was not sure about it. 3 years later I love it and would never go back to gas burners.

I'm sure you'll love the appliances... I smiled over your cast iron frying pan though as I inherited severl of varying sizes from my mom for the same reason a few years ago.... She still thinks it was worth their loss, and I'm still thankful for aquiring them. Hope your experience is similar.

I have one of those ceramic flat topped stoves. I found my old copper bottomed pots could not be used very well on it, they would rock around like crazy so I had to buy new pots. It's easy to keep clean but I still miss my gas stove.

Very Nice! Happy Cooking!
I must admit our dishwasher is one of my favourite appliances. Just hate washing up in steamy hot weather, so ours gets used a lot, & I stack it very full each time, having a shortage of water, here.
Enjoy!

I'll be interested to know how you like your new ceramic cooktop. Gas is my favorite, but the clean lines of the ceramic intrique me.

Ooooh new pots and pans - I am jealous. Well done on getting everything you wanted!

I'll be interested in how you like your ceramic top and new pots. I have a ceramic top that I hate, probably because like Pam's, my copper Revere Ware just rocks and rolls and never gets very hot. I love my iron skillets and have used them anyway, though they have made a mess of one of the cooktop eyes. I know I need new pots, but I keep dithering on what to get. I like to cook over heat as fiery as the hinges of hell, so I would probably warp the nice stainless pots you have. (Your pots are the ones I've been looking at.) But then, if they conduct heat better than my copper pots, maybe I wouldn't need so much heat. It's a conundrum. Let me know what you think of it all.
