Here is proof that you are probably right when you say that I might be a little OCD. Not that it is such a bad thing. You must realize there are only two of us in the house, and no kids to raise, or aged parents to care for. What you will see below is my pride and joy. Our Cookstove. But better yet the copper cookware that we use daily and that I am responsible for maintaining in a proper degree of luster. I agreed to keep them clean and shiny if she would allow me to buy them. Not only do they look good, but she now realizes that they are wonderful to cook with. The stove is all electric with a convection oven and is made by the same company that makes a similar model of wood burning cookstove. They use a lot of the same castings and fit European electric burners into the top. I wish we had the room for the exact same model and color of wood burning stove in the kitchen. We used to have one in a cabin we had out in California, and I used to love cooking on it. I made pancakes for breakfast on it. Yum Yum!
Kitchen stove, some maintenance required.
