My best Christmas present this year is ......... a new stove. And why you might be wondering do I need a new stove? well a $5 part stopped working and there was no indication that the part was broke.
The cleaning thermometer broke on my oven. When cleaning the oven, the oven got way to hot since the thermometer did not register the final temp being reached. The oven got nice and clean but way too hot. The higher temperature expanded the metal oven lining. Once cool, the expanded lining did shrink, but not to its original shape, causing the oven racks to be loose and sometimes fall. An oven liner is a part that costs too much to fix so the oven company does not even service them. So new stove to me. All because of a cheap thermometer.
Here is the new stove soon to be delivered.
That's MY stove! You will love it!
