It's a pro series Thermador which we bought seven years ago -- off the internet!!!! We had decided that we wanted a new stove (when we moved into Linderhof it was an electric stove which we quickly replaced with an inexpensive gas one) and so went looking.
At Nebraska Furniture (which has every kind of stove manufactured), we were looking at the GE and Westinghouse . . . and then I turned the corner and there, right there, were the professional series of home stoves.
I never looked back and knew that in my heart was the only kind of stove that I wanted.
We looked at different brands and finally settled on the Thermador. The Stove was paid for with money that I had earned doing luncheons and teas -- a bit here and a bit there. It gives you some satisfaction to save for something you truly want.
We looked at prices and found the best price on the internet -- and they delivered and put in place!!!! No shipping either and no sales tax! It was a very good deal.
And it came -- on St. Patrick's Day 2004. Early enough so that we were able to cook the ritual corned beef on Stove and invited company to boot!
I loved Stove when I bought it and I still love Stove.
Linderhof's kitchen is small and Stove is a commanding presence in that little room. But I cannot think of cooking on anything but Stove!
It is one of my favorite things in the kitchen at Linderhof!!!
It's Saturday and so please join Laurie at Bargain Hunting With Laurie for Favorite Things Saturday!
Does anyone else think their stove is a favorite thing?
