No More Glass Top Ranges
Many of you may remember back in July 2019 I did a review on my new glass top range. This is what happens to it when you drop a glass jar of sauerkraut on it. I have feared breaking the top since I bought this range. I have seen so many people showing pictures just like mine and thought that wouldn’t happen to me. One person even said they put a hot lid on the range top and it created a vacuum and broke it.
At first I thought I would like this range. I could use a razor blade to clean the top instead of the ugly drip pans. Then I got my first scratch about 2 months in and I have no idea how. I had to be very careful when using my cast iron pans too.
This came with a convection oven and the regular oven. I hated the convection oven and never used it, total waste! However, I loved the regular oven with it’s 3 shelves and accurate temperature and cooking time. One out of three isn’t bad right?
Can you guess what I am going to do? Buy a replacement glass top? Hmmm that would be cheaper than a new range but what if I spend $200-$300 for a new top to be installed and a month later drop something else on it. I could be paying for this range over and over again let alone the inconvenience.
My husband and I talked about it and we decided to junk this range and buy a new one without a glass top and convection oven, similar to all the other ranges I have had most of my adult life. This was an expensive accident, but in the end I will be happy to have my old style range again.
Now for my dilemma, I will not have a cooktop as my new range will not be delivered until May 4th. I do have my two Ninja’s to cook with as they have a sauté function, air fryer and my oven still works on the range. If you notice a difference in my recipes for the next two weeks, please stick with me as I will be back to normal soon.
Has this happened to you? Did you replace the broken glass top or did you buy a new range like me? Will you buy another one with a glass top in the future?
