How long does it take to plug in 2 new stoves? Maybe an hour or 2, right, including taking the old ones to the porch?
Wrong. Try 9 very grumpy Dan hours. The new stoves were about 1/2" narrower than the old ones, so he had to uninstall the dishwashers, replace the subflooring because he didn't like it, repaint the grubby walls, and then put the stoves back in place after sliding the counters around just a touch so all the extra space was on one side of one stove. He still needs to replace that piece of countertop, but it's better than disassembling the sink and replacing both counters!
Ad don't they look pretty! I'm trying out the convection baking feature, and will give an update and report on these stoves. Note: These are "European convection ovens" and evidently that means there's a third heating element along with the air circulating fan. Of course, the manufacturer supplied no information other than how to turn it on, so the learning curve will be pretty steep. Any and all guidance will be appreciated.
The dishwasher is not yet installed. I believe my appliance man is "not in the mood" right now. And they say women are moody! Still, he is a great guy.
My old stoves, which work just great, will be donated to whichever charity will come pick them up. I don't believe in discarding perfectly good things.
