Actually, I'd think closer to 12. You put that in well before we moved away, I think, and it will be 11 years this summer.



Yikes! Has it been that long. Well then, I guess my recco goes back a few more years then. The stovetop is still working splendidly. No issues at all. My biggest problem is where to keep all the cooking gear I can't seem to resist. The latest, a Staub Cocotte pot that I love, not that it's all that different from all the Le Creuset's I already have. One new thing comes in, something old has to go...


Yes, it definitely makes your recco even stronger. I had the identical stove top in Huntington Beach you might recall and loved it, too. Wish I liked my range as much!

Understood re all the storage room problem. I'm on the same program--not easy to do, though, after many years of good service!

Our local kitchen supply store has an answer to your storage problem. A couple of times per year they solicit customers to donate their unused pots, pans, gadgets, etc. and then turn them over to local charities. A nice win-win!
Cheers!
